Many moons ago Sandie wrote a story featuring her youngest son and a few of his friends. She replaced the names with their faces and added a few more friends. Her son insisted on taking the b/w photocopied, stapled bits of paper into school for storytime. 2 days later Sandie was mobbed by parents asking where they could get a copy. Saronti was born!

Roll on a few years and Sandie was introduced to Karine when she was looking for a designer for a leaflet. Karine loved the concept so much she became part of the dream.

Turning an Idea into a Business

Stories became illustrated books, ideas became products and Saronti began life as an online presence selling unique gifts for families, schools and children.

Sandie’s life was thrown a huge curveball and unfortunately it lead to her having to take care of other things for a while.

During this time Karine began working with a developer on a solution that would revolutionise Saronti’s production process- the DIY customiser tool was born!

The future

This brings us back to today where we are relaunching with the option for customers to make their own Books & Games, ask us to take over, or give a Saronti gift voucher to pass on the DIY fun.

Saronti’s ideas are still the same as they were when Sandie wrote the very first rhyming book – adding a face to a character and making a personalised storybook a joy for everyone to read.

Luckily now, technology means we can bring the Saronti experience to more than just books.
