SAVING BUSINESSES MONEY FOR OVER 10 YEARS
At Lady and the Stamp, we know what we are about. We won’t ever try to claim that we are long standing experts in the stamp community because we are not. We are a couple who come from very different career paths who know how limited funds can make or break a business.
Emma has worked in accountancy practices and as a management accountant for the past 10 years spending her early 20’s in the corporate rat race before opting to go travelling in
Australia and Asia for the last 3 years. Her experience accumulated from working for a multitude of industries including hedge funds in London to construction firms in Kent, to the head office of a large department store chain in Melbourne down to single sole traders. Specialising in saving her clients money and excellent customer service, starting a business dedicated to passing on fantastic savings to customers seemed like a great addition to a full time job as a management accountant.
Shaun is a businessman, he spent most of his early 20’s attending university, he graduated with a BA in Business Administration from the University of Portsmouth and Linkoping University in Sweden, he then progressed to graduate with a Dual MA in Advanced International Business Management from Newcastle University and the University of Groningen in the Netherlands. Before Lady and the Stamp he spent his time moving country to country and learning his craft as a coin dealer where he specialised in valuation and negotiation, and has a humble YouTube following where he aims to educate people on buying and selling coins.
Before we started Lady and the Stamp we saw an opportunity to lower the costs and therefore increase profits in Shaun’s coin business by buying discount postage. This then escalated to, “can we do the same for other people and other businesses?”, the answer being a resounding yes! As postage costs are increasing most years and can be some businesses highest cost after stock, we therefore realised that the extra saving we can provide, could give others that extra margin when competing against other businesses or allow them to spend their hard earned money on things they enjoy more. You may be asking how we can do this and is it legal, and simply with Shaun’s skill-set and Emma’s financial savviness, we can buy stamps valid for postage from the global market at a discount and pass these savings onto you, whilst allowing us to work and travel – a perfect incentive for us to work hard for our customers.
