The Founding Story
This is the tale of an enterprising individual who, driven by a bold idea, founded Blue Sheep Stationery. In 2010, while still a student in the historic town of Stellenbosch, he embarked on this venture from a modest basement setting. With resources gathered through a bit of creative online sourcing, the support of his girlfriend’s laptop, and funds pooled from friends, he set the stage for what was to come. Despite having limited experience, his determination was unwavering.
His journey took an exciting turn when he connected with a fellow entrepreneur from China. This partnership marked the beginning of a fruitful collaboration. Together, they launched the brand’s first line of stationery products, initially sold in a local Stellenbosch cafeteria. From there, growth was exponential. By the next season, Blue Sheep Stationery was a name known in 65 stores across the nation, all serviced from his trusty 1400 Nissan bakkie.
As purchase orders surged, so did the brand’s reputation, especially among students and major retailers. This story stands as a testament to the power of vision, resilience, and the magic of starting small to dream big.
