Tell us about where you’re from, what you do, how it all started and why you enjoy it.

Based in the Isle of Man and I originally started the company to produce paint mask stencils. It very quickly expanded into PVC patches, embroidered patches and, more recently, challenge coins.

What are your aims and are there any items or products you’d love to make?

Hoping to purchase an industrial print and cut sticker machine so we can do stickers in-house. This will also allow us to do banners and t-shirts etc

What do you consider your greatest achievement in the work you do associated with EDC?

I’ve had the pleasure of supplying a few of the PVC patches over the last couple of years. I do think the Doughnut was probably one of my favourites (although I do love all of them). And not forgetting the V4 Challenge Coin.

What is the best thing you have made and why?

Such a difficult one to answer!! I love what I do and no design is ever the same. I guess what really does it for me is seeing the end result. When a design is finally realised as an actual item. Seeing people’s reactions to them is a fantastic feeling

What EDC gear is in your pockets right now?

Does a can of San Miguel count? 😂
