Hello! So this is it, my first blog post. I wanted to begin by introducing myself and just talking about Curious Print
My name is Alisha and I am from the very flat Lincolnshire in England, The UK, I’m from a small town called Spalding which used to be home to the Tulip Parade which was this amazing festival with floats created from left over tulips at the end of the season.
Curious Print Studio is the combination of all of my favourite things, bright colours, being bold and quirky, as well as spreading messages of self love and positivity. The support I received over the past year has been surreal, I wasn’t even sure if I’d sell 15 prints, let alone in my first year of business almost selling 2000 prints and mugs to homes all over the world 😳
The name literally came from me typing up different words in a cursive font in Adobe Illustrator and seeing what looked the nicest, I wish there was more to it than that, however I do love the name now, it does grow on me more and more!
And although people on first glance of my Instagram may think I have a swish office and a wonderful team (I wish 😂) it is just me, myself and I - well sometimes my boyfriend helps with mug pressing and packing if I’m a bit overwhelmed, but everything usually comes direct from me, every single print, every mug, every hand written note, all me! If you had told me at the start of my furlough last year I would be made redundant and that this would be my full time job I would have laughed! This is now my sole income and I am loving every minute of it!
