Business Success

Established since 2010...

A friend saw an advertisement in the local County Gazette about the Local Business Accelerator (LBA) which was backed by BBC Dragon’s Den star Deborah Meaden and Prime Minister David Cameron, looking for young businesses to apply for 12 months free mentoring and advertising to boost their business.

Karen Lang, Owner of Azana Photo Frame

Karen Dobson, sole owner of Azana Photo Frames decided to apply and was overwhelmed when she became shortlisted in November 2011.

Squealing with joy ‘Oh my gosh!’ ‘Oh my gosh!’ and leaping up in the air.

Karen had forgotten all about the competition as she was so busy with orders during the Christmas period, then came the good news in the New Year 2012 – Azana Photo Frames was chosen as a regional winner of the LBA with another winner Martin Hill Photography who was also fortunate to be successful.

Karen has prided herself with her hard work and has done everything from scratch by herself, starting her business in the dining room then gradually growing and moving to a bigger space in her country home.

Beautiful

Exactly what I was looking for beautiful frames words ect chose my own words as was for a very special little man packaged very well would definitely recommend

Lovely picture frame.

Was very glad to find this frame as it is for a Xmas pressie.It was well wrapped and would recommend this company.

Lovely quality

Delighted with my order of 1st scan photo frame. Arrived quickly and really delighted with it. Would definitely order again.

No title

This was the second picture frame I ordered and after receiving the first there was a 10% discount on the next purchase. When I ordered the second frame I applied for the discount but it would not accept it. On contacting Azana I was told the discount had expired. Perhaps in future you could indicate the very SHORT expiry date on the discount.
