Welcome to Dotty About Braille

Dotty About Braille is a multi award winning business specialising in personalised, accessible braille greetings cards, clear adhesive labels and transcribed documents.

Since launching in May 2023, I've been featured on the television, radio, in magazines and newspapers and have received various awards and accolades. It's fantastic to see so many people supporting my business and helping to raise awareness.

You can purchase all my products through my online shop, I do have a large range of cards, covering a variety of life events, religious holidays and key milestones, but if you’re looking for a card with a specific message on the front, please order the Custom Braille Greetings Card.

Although my products are aimed at blind and visually impaired people, they are suitable for anybody with an interest in braille, or if you want to send a “secret message” to your friends and family. Add a note if you'd like me to include a braille reference sheet so the recipient can decipher the message.

I offer a range of free braille resources, to help sighted people learn braille and to raise awareness, downloads include printable braille alphabet flashcards, colouring pages and a fun (easy!) quiz.

I also have a blog where I’ll be talking about things relating to braille, accessibility, disability and running your own business. If you’re disabled and own a small business, please do get in touch as I’d love to feature you on my blog.

If you have any questions, please check out the frequently asked questions page or contact me and I’ll be happy to help.

Hayley, a white blonde female, stood outside 10 Downing Street, there is a ramp leading up to the front door. Hayley is smiling at the camera.

Can you believe I was invited to 10 Downing Street?! No, me neither! What an exciting day, I even got to meet Larry the Cat! I was there for the launch of The Lilac Review, an independent review into the barriers disabled entrepreneurs face.
