1992 – THE FIRST EVER GIFT TO MUM

At the tender age of 8, the now owner of Real Unique sat contented watching an art program on the TV, feeling inspired she decided to get out her craft box and make a present for her mum's upcoming birthday. What started as a door plaque, ended as some sort of face mask however the joy on her mum's face when receiving the awful but unique gift drove her into creating and thinking of more ideas to light up faces.

There were some absolutely awful creations over the years but the passion for designing and creating never stopped and thankfully a course in design helped make the creations look a lot more appealing to the eye!

 

2011 – THE BEGINNING

Fast forward many years and the beginning of Real Unique was born in the form of a printed mug, this mug still sits with pride on the sample shelf in our production workshop, there were many more items to follow and what started as a hobby soon turned into a business, with new computers, presses and design equipment the business began to boom.

 

2015 – WEDDINGS

It wasn't long before the company started getting a lot of wedding requests, during this time Real Unique spotted a gap in the market and concentrated on creating new and unique ideas and gifts for customers weddings. Although we love to create gifts for all occasions we can proudly say that we are now wedding specialists and can bring you some unique gift ideas for your big day.

 

2017 – PRESENT

Real Unique has a very busy workshop where most items are designed and printed in house. From personalised cushions and vases to items for your home the RU team caters for all ages, genders and occasions however, as we now specialise in weddings we are producing a lot of bridal party and wedding day gifts and goodies.

 

2017 ONWARDS – THE FUTURE

This year we have launched a brand new website which customers will find easier to navigate, find and personalise their products as well as widely expanding our printed range. We have teamed up with several other companies and are taking on extra staff to ensure we maintain the fast turnaround time we have always offered for personalised items. 

We do also have an eye on a sparkly new shop and workshop but wee shall see ;-)
