Taunton business scoops Albert Goodman’s business support package prize worth over £2,000

Taunton-based Abbie & Rattie Design Ltd has been announced as the lucky winner of Albert Goodman’s business support package prize, designed to take her business to the next level.

Samantha Trim, the owner of Abbie & Rattie Design, will now be able to enjoy access to a variety of business and marketing services on offer with the aim of raising the profile of her online unframed art prints business – a business she founded in 2017.

The package includes, social media training and 12-months aftercare service (by IntroTweet), a 12-month Xero subscription and graphic design work (by Design Bean).

In addition, Samantha will gain a full 12-month membership to Somerset Chamber of Commerce where she can start to network among the local business community and gain invaluable advice from those more established business leaders.

Mike Cahill, Business Services Partner at Albert Goodman, said: “Small businesses have especially been hit hard during the pandemic and Albert Goodman has recognised the pressure they have been under – the high number of entries reflected this.

“We are absolutely thrilled to support a local business owner like Samantha who can now tap into all these useful services that will provide her with the platform she needs to grow her business. We wish her all the very best and look forward to staying in touch to hear how our support is helping her business to expand.”

Samantha Trim, founder of Abbie & Rattie Design Ltd, added: “I was so excited to hear my business Abbie & Rattie Design had won the competition. As a small business owner, I wear many hats and struggle to find the time to manage everything efficiently. The range of prizes are going to be a huge help in the running and management of many of these tasks and will be so beneficial to my business and its growth. Thank you for this fantastic opportunity Albert Goodman.

“With a background in graphic design, and a passion for interiors, I merged the two to create a business four years ago. I design unframed art prints in a variety of styles, colours and sizes. I also offer foil prints and custom prints on request.

“Having invested in specialist printers and equipment, I design, print and package all orders from my office at home. I love nothing more than creating beautiful designs to display in people’s homes or to gift to friends and family. I am so thankful to have turned my passion into a business and look forward to seeing what the future brings.”
