The ShipShape Family

With one shop in Exmouth and one in Wells, nearly 70 miles apart, you’d think we’d be two teams. In fact here at ShipShape we couldn’t be closer. Here are the team dedicated to you:

PhilDirector & Chief

Phil has owned and run ShipShape for over 13 years now and not only does he put the customer at the heart of everything we do, he also makes sure that ShipShape is a safe and fun environment to work in. With previous expertise in clothing manufacturing, Phil knows everything you need to know on the products and materials used. Phil is also not shy in getting on and printing or embroidery when needed. Phil loves dark chocolate digestives and always matches his belt with his shoes.


Nikki Office Manager

Nikki has been with ShipShape for over 4 years now and oversees the embroidery production alongside Phil and Jo. Nikki is 'jack of all trades' and has often been known to order, sort, dispatch, print and embroider all in 1 day! Any queries or concerns Nikki is on hand to deliver exceptional customer service building a great rapport with her customers. If she doesn't know the answers she knows where she can find them, but her main role is to keep Jo and Phil in line! Nikki loves days out and camping with her family.
