It's been a great couple of months in the Create Customer Services team, especially with the sun coming out to play! From new members joining to old members coming back, it's certainly been busy on our desk!
First of all we have two new Customer Support team members joining, so you'll notice some new faces on Create's 'Who We Are' page. Bukky and Chris both joined as new Account Managers in April and have settled in straight away, bringing new life and laughter to the team.

Well it's been a whirlwind three weeks of celebrations, freebies, offers, updates and customer profiles. What better way to round things off than hearing the story of Jo Jenner from 3 Blonde Bears, a successful online shop specialising in customised products and gifts. (Our last freebie is actually a competition open to everyone! See the end of this post for more details.)
Hi Jo, tell us about 3 Blonde Bears.
Working from our studios in Haywards Heath we design, personalise and print a range of cotton textiles, ceramics and clothing for both adults and children. As the business has grown we have brought in a range of complementary brands to sell alongside our own products, creating the perfect place for all your gifting requirements.
The 'three blonde bears' are my lovely children Finley, Dexter (pictured with me) and Amelié. When thinking of the branding and company name the affectionate nickname that me and my family call them struck me as the only option!

Royal Mail are no longer the de facto postage and courier service for the UK, albeit obviously still a big deal for many. Over recent years there has been a rise in the use of alternative courier services available to the public.
So I set out on a little journey to find some of the best. Before starting I took a look at the Create Community's reactions to Royal Mail, to see what was causing some people heartache, and it seemed like the recently-announced smaller-sized parcels and packages were a popular topic.
