“PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES SINCE 2003...
Blue Sky Studios began its journey in a flat in north Leeds in 2003. For the first few years, we sold the rights to our gift ideas to other companies. This taught us that ordinary ideas do not make money, you have to come up with completely original ideas that are commercially viable and popular.
We started manufacturing ourselves in 2006 after being told that an idea was impossible to make… the resulting product is still on sale today. Over the years we developed a network of excellent factories and opened an office in Hong Kong to help manage the production process.
In 2012 we entered the licensed stationery sector, and within 18 months had managed to impress Disney and Hasbro enough with our product range, to be give the opportunity to pitch for, and win, the rights to sell Star Wars and My Little Pony.
We are now the UK’s leading distributor of licensed back to school products, which covers stationery, luggage and lunch-ware. We sell these ranges alongside our ever growing, in-house designed range of novelty gifts.
The company today is still based in Leeds, but has moved to Leeds Bradford Airport where our head office is located. We have a satellite office in Nottingham and we have recently moved our Hong Kong office to Ningbo in northern China.
