Gift Graphite- A New way of gifting, A VSSUTians #StartUp
Nowadays, with the changing world, everything got upgraded but gifts sector remained unchanged. Everyone faces the problem of “I want to gift something new”. Every time on any occasion we get the same type of gifts – bouquets, mementos, etc. and gift the same to others. They also faced this problem so many times and on the other hand there are many sketch artists whose talents are going unnoticed and useless. Therefore, they tried to change the tradition of gifting old and boring stuffs so a group of friends studying in VSSUT (formerly UCE), Burla founded a start-up, “Gift Graphite”, dealing in personalized hand-made sketches.

They provide hand-made pencil & charcoal sketches made on different paper sizes like A4 & A3, and many more new options are being introduced. You have to just mail the photo whichever you want to be sketched and make the confirmation, then within 7 days they will ship you, your sketch, no matter in which part of country you live in. They are doing this just by using social media platforms to the full extent. They take orders through their Facebook Page and Whatsapp. You can visit their Facebook page and have a look at their works www.facebook.com/giftgraphite/.
They started in July 2016 and within this short span of time they got very popular due to their hard work and high quality service, that they got featured in “Glam-orus” (Odisha’s one of the leading magazine) , eOdisha.Org (One Leading Odisha Portal ) & Bhubaneswar Buzz (An e-Magazine). Even they handed over a sketch to India’s Raw Star Rituraj Mohanty and Padmashree Awardee Haldar Nag too. Recently they had organised a sketching event named “Go Sketchy”, where they gave chance to all upcoming and new artists to showcase their sketching talents. Artists sent their work to them and they uploaded those to their Facebook page and the one with maximum number of Likes & the best sketch won the contest. During this event they got overwhelming response from the students & artists all over Odisha.
Their vision and mission is to give the artist well needed recognition & a platform to earn while pursuing art as a hobby over even as a passion. They have tried to provide a solution to the problem of, “What to gift?” They also deal in bulk orders from mostly corporate clients, for occasions like farewells, felicitations, etc.
