Love Layla, a greeting card maker which designs and prints funny, cheeky and rude greetings cards, has moved to larger premises after setting its sights on international expansion.
The West Yorkshire-based business is exporting with its first franchise established in Australia and was started by entrepreneur Stacey Dennis from her kitchen table in 2015 and has now become a £1 million turnover business.
Stacey Dennis, founder and owner, said: “It’s been a whirlwind couple of years and everything has happened so quickly. It feels great to be bucking market trends and to be doing so well around seasonal times such as Christmas and Valentine’s Day.
“It would seem that our tongue in cheek designs have established quite a following carving out a new market for the traditional greeting cards and appealing to younger buyers in particular.
“It’s very exciting to have such healthy sales and to have our first franchised business in Australia too. Hopefully, we can build on this in the future.”
Love Layla’s design range attracts an international customer base as well as interest from celebrities and some of the UK’s largest card retailers.
