Sting in the Tail has been designing and manufacturing products for over 30 years. We are based in the English Lake District and assemble all our products in our headquarters on the edge of Morecambe Bay. We always endeavour to source and manufacture as many components and products in the UK as possible. The design of many of our products reflects the heritage of our country with a modern twist. Our products are often designed for niche areas of the giftware market, enabling our customers to stock unique products for sectors that are seldom supplied. Great for getting you noticed on social media and developing a loyal following. We recognise that packaging has a very short life before ending up in the bin, landfill, or even the oceans. For 26 years we have tried to keep our packaging to the minimum, choosing to use containers with a future use or recycled functional packaging.
Our customers are mainly independent retail shops, mail order catalogues and we also export to many countries. We endeavour to give our stockists exclusivity for the products they stock within an agreed 5 mile geological radius. We do supply a few larger retailers; all our customers operate within the same terms and conditions. We supply some customers with own label products. There are minimum quantities for this, but please ask if you are interested, we will help where we can.
We know where every component in our products comes from. We manufacture in the UK whenever possible, looking to Europe if necessary and further afield reluctantly. We pay careful attention to the fragrances which are developed and produced exclusively for our products.
We’d love to hear from you!
