McLaren & Wall Ltd - Hampshire, Surrey & Berkshire

Posted: 18th Jul 2017

A 3D casting keepsake business specialising in plaster, glass, bronze, silver 3D casts and 3D jewellery. An entirely work from your kitchen table business, equipment and materials are cheap and very easy to source. 3D casting is specialist and there are not many people doing it locally so there is great opportunity and the market is plenty. In one month including finger hand and foot jewellery (the month before it became a limited company sales hit £5k). Originally I made solely baby keepsakes under the name Cheekies Treasures but I was presented with another market , the memorial market (which on initial investigation appears to have a lot of potential). I felt that Cheekies Treasures didn't have the weight required so I renamed and rebranded to McLaren & Wall to bring more of a luxury, respectful and elegant feel. I also have some incredible partnerships with local businesses and we all work together to increase our market. A local baby photographer has some of my samples at her studio and I get a lot of business from her. I also have a partnership with a lady who makes the 3D jewellery for me also so I just make the casting and send it to her and she does the rest. Very low maintenance. Also an option, you could approach another business who makes the same products in south Hampshire and ask if she would work on a wholesale basis. I have a partner who is on the website who makes the other keepsake jewellery and its set up to receive commission from. I'm selling because my personal situation has changed. It really is a wonderful business and a lot of hard work has gone into building it up. Now is the perfect time to take it on as it will be big to run into Christmas with.

Earning Potential

£20k turnover per annum plus. I had 2-3 casting days a week with two appointments per day and would alternate them based on casts that required finishing. Could easily work 20 hours a weeks and make this business a huge success. Perfect for a mum not wanting to return to work. The business base is all set up and the audience on FB is primed ready to receive communication.
