Inscripture HQ Covid-19

Inscripture is a small family business with our Studio based at the bottom of our garden in Leigh on Sea, Essex (so we have literally been locked down at work)

Over the years our team has grown from just myself (Hayley) and my partner (Andre) to an amazing team of 9, most of whom work remotely all year round so the recent upheaval for most businesses thankfully hasn’t effected us much at all. Alex (my Dad) is the only member of the team usually in the office that is now working from home but with my mum there to make his Tea & lunch I don’t think he really got too bad of a deal. We have however gained 2 extra workers in the office (our children) which although they aren’t technically working for us (just filling the office with homework, drawings & traced alphabet letters), they did come in particularly useful for our delivery of 5000 gift boxes which needed unpacking ?

We are so thankful for the technology that enables us to stay in touch with our team and we have daily meetings altogether via Zoom (albeit sometimes in our pj’s and with impromptu appearances from little ones) to discuss our plans for the day.

Our team consists of:

Hayley – Owner/Founder & Master Engraver

Andre – Owner & Master Engraver

Alex – Handwriting Extraction Specialist & Customer Service

Natalie – Customer Service

Zara – Marketing Manager

Emma – PR

Peter – Website Developer

Liam – Advertising

Dave – Photography

During all the current uncertainty & worry we are so grateful for the amazing support we have received from our customers. Our business is our passion and it truly means the world to us that we can continue to provide our service & put a smile on your faces at the times when you need it most. The health and wellbeing of our customers, staff and partners are paramount to everyone here at Inscripture so we are so fortunate that we can champion flexible working whilst keeping our team & customers safe.

Please utilise us & don’t risk the shops! If you have a gift to buy we will send your item directly to the recipient for free in a beautiful free gift box & will include a handwritten note so your friends/ family will know who it is from and that you’re thinking of them. Simply pop a note at the checkout and we will include this within your package for you.

Our studio is cleaned & sanitised daily and we have daily collections from Royal Mail (excluding weekends) whom we have no contact with as our sacks are left in a secure space outside of our office door. We want to reassure you that Public Health England has advised that there is no perceived increase risk of contracting the virus from handling post. The virus doesn’t survive long upon contact with the absorbent natural fibres in cardboard or paper objects, such as letters or parcels. We ourselves had already been self isolating for over 2 weeks as we wanted to care for our grandparents knowing we had no risk of being in contact with anyone potentially with any symptoms.

Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts for shopping small, we truly need you now more than ever.

Keep Safe, Reach Out & Stay Connected!

Much Love & Best Wishes, Always

Team Inscripture ❤️
