Smallprint franchisees create precious keepsakes which capture children’s fingerprints, hand prints, artwork and handwriting on fine silver jewellery… and get to call it work!

The brainchild of mother-of-two Maija Pykett, Smallprint is the original silver keepsake company. Her beautiful and highly emotive products capture a moment in time. In franchising the system she created, Maija has brought the Smallprint experience to many thousands of customers.

Smallprint launched its first franchise in September 2006. Today, the network includes some 120 franchisees on five continents, with offices in the UK, USA and Australia.

Our business is based on professionalism and quality, both in the way we interact with customers and our relationship with our franchisees. But the foundation of Smallprint is based on family values.

Name:

Nikki

Location:

Beds and Herts

Family:

Partner Emerson, 2 children Jasper and Theo

How often do you work?:

Whenever I am asked to and most Saturdays. Obviously Christmas and Father’s Day are much busier but I will go anywhere I am invited!

How does the job fit around your family life?

This is the perfect job to fit around family life. The children go to bed and I am then free to engrave, polish and make up jewellery. If I was invited to a group or party after Theo’s birth I would ask the hostess or group leader if it was ok for me to bring him…..to date no one has said no in fact they are very welcoming.

Do you get support/training?

The support from Head Office is fantastic…no question too daft and any queries always answered really quickly. They are excellent at supporting me and ensuring I can keep my customers happy. The support from other franchisees is great too.

Are there on-going costs?

It’s important to market yourself well in your area and to do this you need to distribute flyers and perhaps take out an advert in a local paper or NCT magazine. I have definitely found that the more you putin the more you get out….the sky is the limit.

How much do you earn (roughly)?

Between £30,000 and £55,000 a year, depending on my commitments.

What is the best thing about Smallprint for you??

I absolutely love the product… seeing someone’s face when you hand them their treasured item is the best feeling ever.
