The response immediately from winning #SBS has been amazing for Wall Chimp and I couldn't be happier. Looking forward to joining the club.
My name is Rachael and I am the owner of Wall Chimp.
Wall Chimp in every sense of the word is a ‘family’ business dedicated to supplying you with the most stunningly beautiful wall stickers for your home and office.
The family behind the Monkey!
I have lived all of my life in the beautiful county of Shropshire, only leaving for a short time to study for my Business Studies & Marketing Degree at Bangor University.
I met my husband Christian whilst attending Shropshire Young Farmers events throughout the county during my school years 18 years ago.
For the last 14 years I have been working for a global insulation manufacturer within their marketing department, starting out as marketing assistant and finishing as their UK Marketing Manager which I enjoyed immensely.
I gave up my career to be able to start our family.
Harley came into our lives in May 2015 - the 'little chimp' as we call him.
We extremely excited as we are expecting our second baby that is due to join us on Christmas Day 2016.
Wall Chimp was born in November 2012 and has since grown to become a well-known and respected brand across the UK and Europe for both retail and business customers.
In 2013 'Dragons Den Star Theo Paphitis' recognised the progression of the Wall Chimp brand by presenting the company with their prestigious 'Theo Paphitis Small Business Sunday Award'.
The idea behind Wall Chimp was to create a character who would be the face of the brand, to help customers through their design and wall sticker selection process. Wearing his denim dungarees and having his pencil tucked behind his ear, the Wall Chimp is ready to start designing and producing your Wall Art.
We take pride in being a small British family run business, from design to production, our hand finished products are cared for from our home based studio.
I would say you are never to old or to young to start your own business, if you have the drive and determination to make you dreams come true then there is nothing standing in your way.
