I discovered Sketch and Etch on the wonderful world of Instagram and fell in love with Sam's creations. I ordered a custom sign for Dinki Human as well as door signs for my girls bedrooms - obsessed! They're amazing!
Hello, I’m Sam! I’m 28 years old and based in Halifax, West Yorkshire. I work full time as a designer during the week and created Sketch & Etch as a little side hustle!
I’d been thinking about setting up Sketch & Etch for years before I launched in March 2020 (I think I owned the website domain for about 3 years before!!) I finally decided to get it up and running during the first lockdown as I had a bit more time on my hands due to no more commuting to the office! I used laser cutters loads during my time at university, so I already knew how to use one. I finally took the plunge to buy my own and then there was no going back! I started cutting designs out straight away and the range has slowly evolved into what it is today!
Just go for it! Anything is possible if you’ve got the motivation and drive to do it. Research, test things out, ask for lots of feedback and persevere! Running a small business is a lot of hard work, but also incredibly rewarding!!
One of my main dreams for the business was to become a Not On The Highstreet partner, which we managed to do last year, so that was nice! Looking to the future, I’d love to investigate wholesale, look at attending Christmas Markets, collaborate with other small businesses and of course continue growing my range!
Crumpets with a bit of butter… and of course a coffee!
