About

Hello and welcome to Rachel J Designs, a small business creating personalised cards and gifts for those special moments.

Rachel J Designs

If you havn't already guessed, I am Rachel, the face behind Rachel J Designs. I am a one man band creating personalised gifts, cards and stationery from my home in a little old coastal village in the South of Aberdeen. 

I have always enjoyed being creative, however it was not until after I had my little girl in 2016 that I fell back in love with my creative side. I started making more and more gifts for friends and family throughout 2017 and after a push from my husband and some close friends I launched my business officially at the beginning of January 2018. 

I initially started out with a selection of cards and prints, but soon discovered my love for creating personalised items and giving customers the chance to create a unique gift where they can personally chose design colours and add names, important dates or even a special quote that means something personal to them. There really is nothing more special than receiving something that has been made especially for you, and turns a simple card into a special keepsake that will be cherished for years to come. 

After my little boy was born in 2019, being on maternity leave gave me some extra time to focus on growing my brand and adding new products to my online stores. I was lucky enough to not return to my old job in the Oil and Gas sector and Rachel J Designs is now my full time job. 

All my products are made to order by myself. The means I am able to keep any waste to a minimum as there is no excess stock sitting about but it also means I can offer personalisation on the 99% of my products. Not only does this mean you can have names, dates etc added, but it also means I can easily change colour schemes or change designs usually at no extra cost to my customers. Even my notebook covers are printed, punched and assembled by myself in house. 

So, if you are looking for something, but cant quite find what you have pictured in your head, drop me a message and I will happily discuss either adapting any existing designs, or creating something completely bespoke to you.
