In The Beginning
In the beginnings a small one-man business created by Charlie Adam in his parents garage to publish his own designs, Bungalow Graphics has turned, since the intervention of his wife Andrea, into a family run Limited Company, and relocated to their kitchen in 2005 !
The philosophy at the Bungalow is to prefer quality, personal service and human relationships, instead of searching for the lowest prices for higher quantities and potentially lower quality manufacturers from the other end of the planet.
We use printers from our area, the Haute Savoie, for our products, and if we try to regularly come up with new products we are not trying to invade the world with them. Instead of that, we try to preserve their "off the tracks" feel, out of the traditional commercial circuits, which makes them, we hope, interesting.
Apart from occasional exhibitions, we use mainly the internet to promote ourselves, because it is more efficient than expensive paper catalogues for advertising, and because it allows us to deal instantly with every personal request.
As nothing is 100% ecological, we won't abuse the "green" arguments to promote our products (the most ecological would be not to make them), but we pay a lot of attention to the way they are made, and we choose printers and materials that are respectful of the environment.
The Bungalow is growing each year, mostly thanks to word of mouth, and we try to keep creating original and happy products, which one won't find everywhere.
This is why we will continue to search for new, different printable supports, even if we can't offer them at the lowest prices in the world.
As our kitchen was starting to feel a bit small to welcome our clients (especially at kids dinner time!) in 2008 we opened a showroom specially dedicated to our products.
This is where you will be able to find our largest selection of new things, and meet us, in a enchanting set up full of wonders (see Annecy Showroom to find it ).
As you must have figured, at the Bungalow we mix high quality standards and a sense of fun, to make life more colourful.
