The official statement from the Australian Institute of Export:

“There are a large number of awards programs across our state, but there is only one that recognises excellence on the international stage. One thing that is certainly apparent, exporters in New South Wales are strong adopters of technology and it is technology that allows them to take on the world and win. It’s great to recognise excellence, but even greater to recognise those who compete against the best the world has to offer. We salute you. Congratulations. ”
                 – Ian Murray AM, Executive Director, Australian Institute of Export

Darkroom Door proudly exports to many countries throughout the world including United Kingdom, South Africa, New Zealand, Japan, Taiwan, Malaysia, The Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Canada and the Unites States of America.

We are so proud to produce a range of products that are not only popular here in Australia, but appeal to stampers and crafters from all areas of the globe. 

Thank you to everyone for your comments of congratulations and support - it really means the world to us! :)
