About Andrea Proctor

Designs beautiful personalised gifts and products for the home.

 

Why did you start making your products?

We originally started out as EllieBeanBaby selling baby products, we created prints in 2011 for our first Childs bedroom and then started selling them on our EllieBeanBaby site and Etsy. These proved to be super popular to EllieBeanPrints was born from there.

What inspires your products or collections?

Now our range is inspired by the things we love, mountain biking, running, campervans, adventures and the great outdoors. These are the things we love to do as a family in our free time.

What is the best thing someone has said about your products?

We have 1000s of amazing reviews on our website and Etsy... However this is still our favourite! "These prints are *awesome*! Even my passionately anti everything cycling wife liked it. :-) Such a cool idea and makes a great memento of any cycling challenge..."

What is your favourite product/collection, and why?

5 Our line art slate coasters are some of our favourite products - we love that they are 100% our design, drawn by us and create great memories from climbing challenging peaks.

How does your local area impact what you make?

Living in Yorkshire on the edge of the national park we have some great places to ride, walk and get outdoors! However our heart is in the Highlands of Scotland we love it there!

What does a dream day of making look like to you?

Just trying to get through the amount of orders that come in, we try to get all our orders out same or next day at the latest!

How do you make your products more sustainable?

We try our best to reduce plastic and recycle as much as possible. When we have stock delivered on pallets from one supplier those pallets are turned into signs and medal holders

What is the most important thing about your practice?

Creating smiles and making sure every product we make is good quality as possible

What is your favourite thing about making that you don't get to talk about very often?

Not really to sure about this one... We haven't really filled in many things like this so we don't often talk about making that much at all. Some stuff and print process however we have perfected over a number of years and keep the way we do it a secret! :)

How do you want your products to make people feel?

Happy!
