Make it with words was founded in 2014 by husband and wife team Joe Jennings and Amelia Mantero. Joe’s background in Graphic Design and Amelia’s experience in retail was the ideal combination when they were trying to find truly unique Personalised gifts for Christenings and baby gifts for friends. After getting inspiration from vintage toys and more contemporary art they came up with the ABC frame – hand pressed minature ABC blocks spelling out the child’s name with a personal engraved message. The first one was a huge hit and instantly orders started to come in from friends and family.
In 2014 Joe and Amelia decided to go into business full time and have introduced more innovative products that customers can personalise for their special occasions. Most of our products contain a typographical or design element that customers can change to make it special for them.
We are proud members of the Design & Crafts Council of Ireland and all products are made with care and attention in our Dublin workshop.
