Who We Are
Ay up! Welcome to our Dialectable trade portal.
How We Started
The business owner, Julia Harrison, came up with the idea of ‘cards that talk like you’ back in 2013. It took a few months to perfect, but finally, she harnessed the retro speech bubble, straight-talking font and nostalgic colour palette into the design you see today.
Like most fledgeling businesses, it was run from home. But unprecedented enthusiasm for the product and growing sales meant giving up her job at Sheffield University and moving to office premises in 2015. In the same year, a gift line was added to the card portfolio. The mugs flew out quicker than she could pack, so it was decided to outsource storage and distribution.
Where We Are Now
Whilst our office is still in Sheffield, our warehousing is managed by Set in Hand in Stowmarket, Suffolk. Once received by Set in Hand, the orders are shipped on next day delivery by UK Mail.
Keeping It Local
All of our cards are printed locally by Loxleys of Sheffield on a sustainable board. We’re lucky enough to have a great relationship with this expert greetings card manufacturer – and they are literally on our doorstep. All good for our green credentials!
Keeping Things Fresh
Our gift offering has increased significantly, and it is kept fresh with new products and titles every year. We sell everything from cosmetic bags to candles, and there is always something on the horizon.
The Dialectable office is run by a small team of three Yorkshire lasses (Julia, Sarah and Anna). We are dedicated to delivering excellent customer service, and are real humans! We return calls, answer emails and are ready to give advice on bestsellers, merchandising and new products.
Our office opening hours are 9-4pm Monday – Friday.
