Case Study: Stickerzilla grow and reinvest

The Project

Stickerzilla is a rapidly growing company that provides stickers for
businesses and organisations, including bespoke signage and
health and safety around the office and workplace, customised
stickers to have around the home and fun stickers for children.

The Challenge
Located in a busy and expensive city centre, Stickerzilla needed to
consider options to relocate to facilitate the growth of the
company. The company needed to find the right mix of office
space and industrial space to enable the company to continue its
customised design services, while housing specialist equipment to
develop new products and increase their client base.

The Solution
Barle Enterprise Centre, the new home to Stickerzilla, provides a
cost effective and excellent value for money premises for the
company. The industrial unit provides enough floor space for office
space and printing and storage space.
Paul Weeks, Owner of Stickerzilla, said: “I had looked at several
options when we were looking to relocate but none of them
matched up to the offer at Barle. We were able to adapt the unit to
meet our needs, which was important to help the business achieve
its aims to grow and diversify our product range.”
By separating the unit, Stickerzilla has a smart office space where
they can meet clients and discuss their customisation and
personalisation needs and work on the design. The larger
production space has enabled the addition of new printers, which
has increased productivity and the range of products available.

Benefits
- Cost effective business space to support business growth
- Modern units with space to expand
- Part of local business community
Results
- Increased turnover invested back into business to continue growth
- Additional print equipment, increasing capacity and productivity
- Employing more staff to meet increase in demand

The Results
Paul continued: “Being able to increase our capacity has seen the
business’s turnover grow steadily with the business. This has
meant that I have been able to invest back into the business to
have the latest equipment and increase our product lines, reaching
new customers across Europe.
“As the business becomes more established in the print and
design market, we are beginning to see greater orders and repeat
orders from very satisfied customers. It has been great to able to
add to the team and we now have an apprentice designer and a
packaging and distribution co-ordinator.”
The successful growth of the business has meant that Paul has
been able to employ more people and focus on his business
strategy and how they can grow further. Paul is currently looking at
working with Fulfilment by Amazon to support the storage, packing
and shipping of his products.
Stickerzilla has also employed an apprentice, who is undertaking a
two year design vocation at Petroc College in Tiverton.
