At JillyJilly all of our products are designed with a smile in mind and created with love in our wee studio in Falkland, Fife. We are Jilly and David and are really excited that our little business turned one earlier this year! JillyJilly was inspired by a passion to make cheerful gifts in a world where there can be so much negativity. We need to enjoy the little things in life and sometimes all we need is a cheerful treat to brighten up our day!
Help us launch the next JillyJilly collections!
At the moment we make all of our products in our home studio; we press our pocket mirrors, print illustrations and sublimate mugs, hand bind notebooks, hand cut earrings and print cards individually. While we'd love to continue this it makes it difficult to manage orders and we feel that now is the time to find suppliers for some of our new products. If we can outsource some of our production it will allow us to reach more customers with our new designs. It will help give us the opportunity to work with more wholesalers and have our designs stocked across the country, maybe even at a shop near you! This is where Kickstarter comes in: we need to order a minimum number of each design from our new suppliers to go ahead, and the minimum is quite high.
New JillyJilly products
- Jilly has designed a new range of colourful patterns which will be perfect for notebook covers and we have found a supplier that can create beautiful quality recycled notebooks double the size of our current - A5 with 48 pages!
- We want to take the quality of our earrings to the next level so have decided to use laser cut printed charms, this means our designs will be printed and cut from FSC approved, 3mm Latvian Birch plywood.
- Finally, Jilly has been developing a new range of occasion cards which will be more affordable than our current home printed cards if we outsource the printing of these. Our new card range will be printed on FSC certified card and feel more luxurious.
We have been very careful to find suppliers who are kind to the environment and have already received samples to check that our new products will be wonderful quality.
We know how much you love goody bags so we'll be making some of these up as a thank you along with some other rewards giving you the opportunity to be the first to receive products from our new collections.
We know that not everyone is able to pledge money but if you'd like to help we would really appreciate if you can spread the word!
Thank you for taking the time to read about our project.

Risks and challenges
Our main challenge will be having all of the new products ready for taking to our first wholesale trade fair in September. Jilly is working extra hard to finish all of the new collections so we can order them in plenty time!
We have already received samples from several print and laser cutting companies to check that our new products will be the best quality possible as we don't want to risk wasting money on substandard products.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
