What is unique about the product or service you're offering?
I think the simplicity of our products and the straightforward ordering process has been really working for us. The fact that products can be purchased in small quantities and that a lot of our products can be combined with the products that other packaging companies in SA offer. It has been so great to collaborate with other creatives. We love that we are able to offer photographers many options where they can also add their own stamp and are not restricted to one look/style.
