A North Tyneside based company has made the X Factor already this year with a new commission from tv production company Talk Back Thames. Photo Stuff Limited which runs the e commerce website PersonalisedMugs.co.uk was approached by the company behind the X Factor earlier in the year to create a selection of X Factor mugs, coasters and keyrings for the production staff for the start of the 2011 audition process. The Executive Producer was so happy with their products that they contacted the company again to create a special new 2011 X Factor mug and glass to be used exclusively by the new judging panel. Existing X Factor judge Louis Walsh, along with new judges Gary Barlow, Kelly Rowland and Tulisa Contostavlos have already been pictured in the national press with the X Factor glasses produced by Photo Stuff. Director and co-founder Mark Galley is delighted that the products are already being used.They will be on the desks while the judges are holding the live auditions and we will definitely be looking out for them when the judges are giving their comments on the tv. Mark, and wife Louise, started the business in August 2009 and now run a network of e-commerce websites along with a retail shop based in Monkseaton. Photo Stuff produces photo mugs, personalised t shirts, personalised hoodies, and a large range of other personalised products for both high street and commercial consumers. Corporate clients include Mercedes Benz, Ben & Jerrys Ice Cream, Price Waterhouse Coopers, Channel 4's Big Brother and many other local and national businesses. The X Factor contract has come at an exciting time for Photo Stuff who are preparing some exciting plans for the future including expanding their team, Considering we have only been running the company for 25 months this is very big for us, and were hoping it will help to raise our profile, said Mark.
