Today: Kat Whittingham, trade marketing manager, Signature Gifts
“The licensing world has opened more doors for Signature Gifts than we ever imagined it would. The prestige of a licence trusting your company with their brand is something we take great pride in.
With our books it can be challenging to keep the authenticity of these brands and characters, while also providing a personalised element, which is our main USP. We combat this by offering numerous ways to personalise books, which licensors can choose from and therefore be in control of what is done with their brand.
With new licensors approaching us after seeing what we can do, we see a large part of our future being devoted to bringing further licences into the personalised books world.”
