Sting in the Tail designs and manufactures high-quality, design-led giftware, aiming to source as many components as possible from within the UK.

Packaging is a key element to our products; it is simple, contemporary and re-useable wherever possible. We aim to design packaging which is integral to the product as well as having a future use.

The business began trading in 1992 and operated from a home address. It moved to town centre premises in 1994 and subsequently changed its name to "Sting in the Tail' in 1998. The following year the business moved to the current location.

The product range is extensive and may be found on Faire. Ordering also available at shows or via our online ordering system, please contact us for log in details.

Please enquire about own label products.
