ABOUT US & OUR ARTISTS
In 2008 after having my 2 children I left my job of 18 years in the NHS as a Medical Secretary as I decided I wanted a job that I could do from home.
I tried a few different party plan jobs but I really wanted to start something from scratch that I could call my own. At the time I was making personalised birthday cards and I decided to make some personalised chocolate wrappers for my daughter's 4th birthday party. Everybody loved what I had made and a few mums asked me where I had got them from and were amazed I did them myself. I began to make them for their children and after a few months It's A Wrap Cornwall was born.
We started trading in January 2009 and as the years have gone by we have become busier with each year.
As a family run business we hope we bring a personal and friendly approach. All our chocolate and sweet wrappers are hand wrapped by our own fair hands and we have commissioned exclusive wrapper designs by our own in-house artists that are not available elsewhere.
The business has been operated from home since 2009 butas we grew we realised we needed more space. In December 2013 we moved into our first business premises. We now operate from a workshop situated in the "Frocks and Frills Wedding Studio" in Constantine, Near Falmouth. As well as producing our wrappers and running the business from here we will also be displaying some of our wedding products in their showroom. Customers are welcome to visit us at these new premises to discuss your order or to make enquiries (for wedding products or any other occasion), and orders can be collected from here, or by appointment from my home in Pool, Redruth.

Artists who create our wrapper designs
We are well aware that there are other companies nationwide who provide a similar service to ours and create personalised chocolate wrappers. However, we want to make our wrapper designs different to others that are available and also unique to our business. To that end we have commissioned 3 artists (2 of whom are based in Cornwall) to create bespoke designs for our wrappers. All of their designs are original hand drawn pictures and have been exclusively created for our business. We do currently have a few designs which have been computer generated but these will hopefully soon be replaced by original designs from our artists.
The percentage of designs you will see on our website that are exclusive to It's A Wrap Cornwall is approximately 75%. By the end of 2013 we aim to get this figure as near to 100% as possible. We aim to have ALL of the wrapper designs we offer to be exclusively ours and not available elsewhere.
Here is some background information about our artists who create our wrapper designs.
