Striving to be the home of beautiful, personalised productivity tools since 2013, Martha Brook has shipped more than 200,000 pieces of stationery around the world. In 2019, the company turned over c. £1 million and is now raising their first round of investment to accelerate growth.
Martha Brook strives to be the online home of beautiful personalised productivity tools. We aim to uplift, inspire and empower people around the world with our stylish stationery.
Founded by entrepreneur Martha Keith in 2013 who felt that whilst there are many young people who adore stationery, they can’t get what they want from the high street. Young women, in particular, are looking for ‘trend-led, personalised stationery from a brand with values they can relate to’, which is where Martha Brook comes in.
By focusing online, we've been able to grow and be profitable every year since we started. To date, we have sent out more than 200,000 pieces of stationery to more than 50 countries around the world. Last year we turned over sales of c. £1m (2019 rev £957K, EBITA £22.3K).
We have more than 40,000 followers across our social media networks and have been widely featured in the press. Reader’s Digest said, ‘Martha Brook is your go-to for [stationery with] motivational quotes that will help you tackle your trickiest of goals.’
The online stationery market is worth c. £7BN. Its growth is being driven by design-led, personalised stationery, and with more people set to work from home, this is predicted to grow even faster.
We now want to build on the strong foundations we have created with investment in product development, team expansion, technology and marketing to accelerate growth.
