Oh, hey there!
I’m Emma Strachan, the owner, creator and well everything here at Strachan Creative (pronounced: Strawn).
While the vision of Strachan Creative has changed over the years (more about that below), it has always been our aim to produce great quality personalised items to help you celebrate!
Strachan Creative started off on our couch with nothing but paper and a pair of scissors, it then moved to our spare bedroom (which at times took over the entire house), and then a bunch of years later we entered into a shared warehouse space.
It has been an incredible journey to get to this point - and I don't see it ending any time soon.
We were formerly known as ‘Funky Bunting’ (est. Oct 2014), but as of April 2018 I felt we had REALLY outgrown the name and our business had taken on a new direction - this is when we said hello to ‘Strachan Creative’ and embraced change for the future.
It was during our 3.5 month break for our wedding & honeymoon that I had the time to really reflect on what I wanted.. I voiced everything to my husband Craig, and even had a back up plan if it didn't work.. He supported my decision and said GO FOR IT! We bought our first 'real' machine when we returned from the honeymoon, and put our thinking caps on. It was the best decision we could have made for the business - the name change came VERY shortly after, and that's when Strachan Creative really bloomed.
Since the big change up, we have been so lucky to have made 1000's upon 1000's of special items to help you celebrate the special moments in life - whether it be a cake topper, personalised gift or a keepsake.
We have even branched out into items to help make life easier for you by planning your life, or helping your children learning to write.
In 2019 we upgrade our machine again. Bigger and better. Onwards and upwards!
Here we are today, in 2021 - and we are welcoming our very first hired help. Nat has joined the Strachan Creative team to help out as a Virtual Assistant - so you may hear from her via emails and social media messages.
We have also moved into a bigger space in a shared warehouse - where if you have followed us on our socials you would know how damn excited I was to escape the dungeon and finally get WINDOWS!
2021 also saw us branch out and introduce printed products to our range. Eek!!
We are so happy to have you on board with us for this very exciting journey. Thank you for sticking around, or if you are new here - we are so very glad to meet you.
The Strachans (Okay okay... just Emma)
