Cards and Giftware that sound like you.
I started Dialectable in February 2014. I am a colloquial sort of person myself, and I had an idea of developing a range of giftware that used every day sayings and dialect. Regional dialect is fading in our changing world, and my products seem to strike a chord with customers. They remind them of the past - and make people smile. They evoke feelings of both patriotism and nostalgia. Coupled with stripped back design to emphasise the words, and a palette of retro brights, they have been more popular than I had ever imagined. I am very particular about quality and the mugs are made of fine bone china and packed in a sturdy box. The mug range was even shortlisted for Gift of the Year 2016!
I have been lucky enough to turn Dialectable into a full time occupation; which is frankly a dream come true. The ranges, the colours, and the sayings multiply week by week - and I have such fun creating these products. Becoming fully self employed has also given me the flexibility I needed to work around my children and achieve that elusive work/life balance.
