docrafts was founded as Design Objectives Ltd in 1996 and has grown to become the UK’s leading papercraft supplier . Operating from 50,000 square feet of warehousing space in Dorset, England we supply over 2000 outlets across the UK and Ireland, from specialist independents to larger national retailers. We also have distribution partners in over 12 overseas markets, with more to come, we hope!
Unlike most other conventional suppliers, docrafts invests substantial amounts of money supporting its retail customers with powerful marketing support activities to keep the end user informed of new product developments and to inspire them to want to craft.
Whilst our company was established and built around the craft of Card Making, we are also a specialist supplier of Scrapbooking, Kids Crafts, Jewellery Making and Cake Crafting products. Our product offering within each of these sectors is specifically tailored to suit all recreational and professional levels, from beginner to hobbyist right through to crafting enthusiasts.
We stock over 6,000 product lines with exclusive own brand and licensed products, complimented by the very best third party brands. We use in-house and independent consumer research to indentify new trends and ideas and our experienced, industry leading team of product designers create innovative, themed collections and projects to excite and inspire consumers.
These products and our retail partners are supported by our unique and powerful Creativity Store marketing programme anchored by our own Creativity Magazine and www.docrafts.com community website. This programme offers retailers something special and different with fresh and innovative new products launching on our Creativity Essentials promotion every two months, keeping consumers engaged, inspired and wanting more.
With industry leading exclusive product and a strong reputation for excellence in distribution we also have a growing number of overseas partners in territories across the world and are looking to expand this aspect of our business further in the coming years.
