Cheeky Little Prints founder Lisa Berry is celebrating the 10th anniversary of her Swindon-based paw-print-themed gifts and jewellery shop.

The 36-year-old veterinary nurse from Covingham originally set up the company from home, working on customer orders from her kitchen table while her children slept.

She said: "Working with people and their pets, I got to see firsthand just how much we love our furry friends – myself included. "Whenever one passed, the pain and loss suffered really brought home just how much they meant to their owners.

"That’s why I came up with the idea of creating these very special mementoes.”

Cheeky Little Prints became one of the first businesses in the UK to make print kits for pet owners to use to put their own pets’ paw prints on paper themselves.

Lisa added:“Over the last decade, the business has evolved and really taken off. Every order has a special story behind it and my customers love to share their paw print stories with me.

"I’ve now got a good idea about what clients love. It’s why we’ll be expanding the business in the next few months.”

Today the web-based business is still run out of Lisa’s home office in Swindon. Customer orders come in from all over the world, including the US.

Lisa is also a voice for single parents in business. She faced the personal challenge of going through a divorce while her business was starting out and is now a member of the national organisation Single Mums Business Network. Now she supports other entrepreneurs facing similar situations.
