ThreeSix&5 have experienced great success with their premium seasonal brand, The Handmade Christmas Co., since their previous raise with us. Now expanding into different sectors, including their existing food brand, Mix & Bake, ThreeSix&5 are welcoming their newest brand to their collection. Chapterful is an exciting children's publishing label, sharing ThreeSix&5's speciality in personalisation and giving a special touch to each product.
Gifts with a personal touch
Our first brand, The Handmade Christmas Co. is where it all began for us in 2012. We started with the humble aim to provide a modern alternative to the traditional Christmas stocking; after launching in 2014, we now produce said Christmas sacks with screen-printed designs, stockings, baubles, and gift wrap, all of which can be personalised. Our amazing products have been featured by numerous newspapers and lifestyle magazines, and can be found in our many locations across the UK. Stockists currently include John Lewis, House of Fraser, Hamleys, and Marks & Spencer during the festive retail period - we even offer a 'while you wait' express personalisation service in selected locations! All our concepts are developed by our in-house design team and undergo months of development and refinement to ensure we deliver to the highest standard.
2017 was our most ambitious year yet - and this year we hope to better it! Last year we relocated our UK premises and also opened an office in Orlando, Florida to allow us to tackle the US market. We also re-developed our website and launched a new one for ThreeSix&5 in its own right. This is why we are confident that further expanding our portfolio to include Chapterful will be extremely well-received and we can meet the demand. The funds raised in this campaign will therefore go towards purchasing stock for this new brand; we will also use it to consolidate an existing loan.
Where will the funds go?
A. Hi Jakob, it was very similar to the previous year. This was mainly due to the huge investments made in to new premises and equipment. Figures for 18/19 will look much stronger as we have made all of the investments to grow the business over the next few years.
A. Hi Jakob, the consolidation is for external private funding and not the C2F loan. The previous C2F loan is based on revenue and not fixed repayments.
A. Hi Jakob, we have established a small team in the US with a director and various local sales agents. We also work closely with a specialist firm to oversee this expansion.
A. Hi Amit, we are still finalising projections for 2018 as we are awaiting a number of sign offs with our various retail partners.
