about rustic rascal
I'm Rachael Kerr, 27, from the Scottish Borders. I launched the biz after making my own wedding stationery in 2018. I struggled to find rustic invitations with feely bits, hard to explain, but I had a vision and I couldn't find it. I found tonnes of frills and sparkles, and clean, corporate, graphic design-ish looking invitations, but nothing tangibly rustic to suit our barn wedding. So I ordered in my own supplies, drafted a wee business plan, and the rest is history.
You can read my Mission Statement and 3 core Business Values here. I'm sure you'll find Rustic Rascal an exceptionally personal and inclusive service, my customer care is highly reviewed. I price my products competitively and I really do try to provide as eco-friendly a service as possible, which I'm hoping will make me stand out from others. The products you buy from me are not only recyclable, but are made from recycled, FSC certified and bio-degradable materials too, learn more about my Environment Policy here.
My art prints and greeting cards feature original artwork which I sketch myself. You'll notice I love highland cows the most, but the plan is to develop lots of different furry friends as my venture continues, providing lovely people like you keep supporting it!
I run my business from my wee home in the Scottish Borders... to my hubby's delight! In 2019, your support allowed me to quit my full time day job, secure my first stockist and also invest in exciting new machinery. My living room has turned into a factory whilst my studio gets extended in 2020! I'm thankful for every single order I get, whether its for £3 or £300, because without each and every customer I wouldn't be able to chase my dream.
Thanks for stopping by, you're an angel. Keep shopping small!
