Yorkshire-based family-run greetings card retailer, Love Layla Designs, is celebrating after winning ‘Best Micro Business’ at the Brand Yorkshire Business Awards.

This marks the company’s sixth award this year and, added to record sales, makes it their best year to date.

Since starting out in 2014, the Pontefract company has gone from strength to strength.

This year it had already bagged ‘Regional Entrepreneur of the Year’ at The National Family Business Awards, ‘Commended Outstanding Entrepreneur’ at the Northern Power Women Awards, ‘Digital Star Award’ at the Small Awards, ‘Best Online Greeting Cards Retailer’ at the SME News Awards, and ‘Business of the Year’ at the National Best New Business Awards, before being recognised at the Brand Yorkshire Business Awards.

The amazing year could be about to become even better, after Love Layla Designs was shortlisted for the ‘e-commerce Platform of the Year’ award at the British Small Business awards, as well as ‘Online Retailer of the Year’ at the Digital Entrepreneur Awards. But right now, it’s happy owners are delighted to be celebrating being the toast of Yorkshire!

Commenting on the latest nominations, Stacey Dennis, director and co-founder of Love Layla Designs, said: “2018 has been an unbelievable year for us so far and winning ‘Best Micro Business’ in Yorkshire has topped it off! We’d already won five awards which is a great acknowledgement of the hard work everyone on the team puts in, and shows how far we have come since we started out a few years ago.

“We’re busy planning our product ranges well into 2019 and beyond, and can’t wait to see where the future takes us.”
