Another year another BarSign
Its another year on here at BarSigns and what a year. We have had like other businesses our ups and downs but have got this point looking back, learning and moving forward.
Our customer base has increased with more than 2000 original design orders being produced and going on both across the UK and internationally as far as Australia this year.
We have also inevitable seen on the back of the pandemic other competitors springing up trying to replicate our business model. This is including copying our blogs and even trying to register our Business name/Domains as their own (yes we are watching you).
We have been trading in this sector know for over 6 years providing a high quality product but at an affordable price. Unfortunately due to rising costs this year saw our first major increase (5%) to our core products in 3 years. Yet when we compare our pricing to other so called competitors we struggle as to how they can charge so much.
Our best selling 28cmx 28cm hanging double sided sign is still on £31.99 delivered. This is a fully customised product with any text and design yet we have seen this advertised by other sites at £110 + delivery charge and is not even fully customised (they charge more for that).
Our main website has seen some changes too as we moved our solution through the year to provide a more slick and easy to navigate platform. This also allowed us to increase our payment options and provide user and much easier experience. The site now offers Amazon pay and Shop options via its easy to use gateways. We are now also listed on Folksy (the home grown UK equivalent of Etsy)
Looking ahead we have loads of new ideas and concepts to keep our design team busy for a few months and to provide you our customer plenty of ways to celebrate your own home bar.
