MEET The Team
The boring stuff
Ipswich Embroidery and Print was founded by husband and wife team Adam and Tenesha Scott following Adams decision to leave his career in teaching. This was actually a return to the world of Embroidery which he had worked in previously providing personalised martial arts equipment and attire.
In September 2020 IEP merged with another local business, GDS Signage, run by Matt and Alex Roberts-Harbour and relocated from Matt’s smaller unit to the larger premises on the Claydon Business Park they now operate out of. With the merger came the influx of Matt’s printing and laminating equipment, his expertise and seemingly endless supply of office snacks.
On September 14th IEP also took delivery of “Bertha” and “Gertrude”, our two multi-head embroidery machines, offering us 32 heads of embroidery in-house. With this expanded service and scale offering IEP is now in a position to keep it’s local, personal roots but now with a national reach.
Adam – Born in Stockton at some point in the 1980’s, he met Tenesha at University in Kent before settling in Ipswich and starting his family. Adam fills the roll of Office Manager covering most of the artwork, design and sales enquiries. He’s passionate about promptly replying to emails and enquiries and loves a good “system”. Famous for his cheery “how do?” greeting (It’s a northern thing, I think) and for just assuming anyone who walks through the door is a life long friend you’re in good hands if Adam picks up the phone when you call!
Matt – Whilst Matt was born in Lowestoft earlier than Adam in the 1980s, he spent most his life in leafy Surrey before moving to Colchester for University. Following some “proper jobs” in London for the likes of EMAP and UBM he struck out alone as self employed, Fast forward to 2015, Matt married Alex, moved to Ipswich and GDS Signage was founded.
Matt is IEP Production Manager, responsible for the order and delivery of work done inhouse. As well as being a perfectionist, Matt is famous for having an unending supply of strongly held opinions and anecdotes which he feels everyone should be told about.
