This is part of uOpen’s ‘Meet The Maker’ interview series - your exclusive opportunity to get to know the real people and personalities behind the subscription boxes you know and love, and the ones you will soon come to!
Discover the fascinating stories behind how your favourite subscriptions originally came to be, the marvellous people involved in lovingly creating and curating each box, plus a few ‘behind the scenes’ snaps.
What sparked your decision to start up your box and how did you get started?
Late last year we welcomed Bramley, our gorgeous cocker spaniel puppy, into the family who opened a whole new world to us. We had been "pet virgins", and it was wonderful to experience the love and friendliness of the pet world.
PETure Perfect is a part of Afewhometruths, and our studio is packed full of exciting machinery and gizmos where personalised gifts are designed and made.
It was a natural step to combine all of these passions to produce a monthly subscription box based on a custom illustration of your pet. We are having such fun seeing all of your gorgeous animals and plotting new ways to delight our customers.
Describe your box in three words?
Pure Animal Magic.
Where did your box name come from?
It is a play on the phrase "Picture Perfect".
Are you a creator or curator?
Definitely creator... I absolutely adore drawing all the animal characters.
What was your most popular box?
The bamboo coasters prove to be very popular as I think owners enjoy having a sit down to enjoy a cuppa.
How many people are involved with producing your subscription box?
There are two of us, plus Bramley who road tests everything.
Which subscription boxes do you subscribe to?
Name a celebrity subscriber you’d love to have as a customer?
Greyfriars Bobby's dad so he could realise how much his dog loved him.
If you could put anything in your box, with money or scarcity no object, what would it be?
A huge personalised pillow, big enough to snuggle up on with your pet without being pushed out to the side - dream on!!
