Well hello there,
Welcome to the world of Bertie & Jack!
As you'll see from our short film, Bertie & Jack design and make a colourful range of personalised wall art. We create our popular ‘cut-out’ product by cutting our hand-drawn illustrations from mount board and layering patterns and prints behind the cut-out shapes. Bertie & Jack were the first to create artwork this way. We design all our surface patterns in-house and our range is made here in England.
We started back in 2010, shortly after the arrival of our children, Becky's daughter, Bertie and Emma's son, Jack. We had just enough savings to invest in a market stall umbrella, a small amount of materials and pay the first month’s rent at our street trading pitch in Bath.
We took it in turns with the childcare and managing the market stall; one looked after the babies, whilst the other set up the stall each day. The suitcase we used to display our artwork often doubled up as a moses basket. We worked every evening, creating our artwork, having it ready to sell the following day. The hard worked paid off and in 2013 we were ranged with John Lewis (high five us!).
Bertie & Jack is a family business – both Bertie and Jack’s Dads work full time at Bertie & Jack. The team is growing and we currently employ other parents, who work during school hours, nap times and evenings, helping us grow our brand. We love being in control of our destiny and the luxury of time with our growing families is priceless.
We are always working on new designs, surface patterns and coming up with new ways of creating personalised wall art.
So, that’s us. Whether you’re looking for a personalised gift for a special occasion, or a treat for your home – Bertie & Jack has something you’ll love. Hope to see you soon,
Becky, Emma and team Bertie & Jack x
