With £5.4m sales since 2014, Bookblock is a one-stop gifting shop; a vertically integrated gifting platform and a design-led manufacturers. It creates and sells beautiful products for consumers and blue-chip businesses, along with print-on-demand personalised cards and gift packaging.
With over £5.4m of sales since 2014, and FY 2018 profit of £348k, we launched as design-led manufacturers creating beautiful products for the likes of Facebook UK and Google UK operating from our factory in Turkey. We made manufacturing accessible, introducing 3D technology that simplified complicated manufacturing processes.
Our new venture takes us into the consumer realm, combining the digital and physical worlds with print-on-demand products such as greetings cards, invitations, and personalised children's books.
Like Netflix, we've created our own direct route to market through our gifting platform. Direct competitors would be Moonpig.com, FunkyPigeon.com and Papier.com. Bookblock aims to disrupt this mature industry, shaking up its pricing structure; where our competitors need to sell their greeting cards for a profit, Bookblock plans to give away unlimited cards with a paid-for subscription service to encourage customer interaction, along with other benefits. The customer would only have to pay postage.
The market is huge, with billions spent on gifts and cards each year. Moonpig receives 1600k unique visitors per month, FunkyPigeon.com 879k and Papier 183k.
Bookblock's concept is proven after months of testing and listening to feedback. Since launch, we've implemented many improvements and functionalities, and are now ready for a marketing push.
