By Mar - Postcard 'Don't blame the holidays'


My name is Marianne Reinders and I choose craftsmanship! In a digital world where mass production is the norm, I make something with my hands. This is how my products gain value.
From being a successful event manager in the sports industry with major projects such as the Olympic Games, the Holland Heineken House and Champions League Finals, I was looking for meaning and content in life. Something that I can put my soul into and that is tangible and lasting. Now everything falls into place. Actually, I already knew it: I am a maker.

I make jewelry to order, I make postcards and as an Event Manager I create high-end events that focus on business meetings.

My postcards look like me; a bit stubborn and sometimes balancing on the edge, but always with a wink. The standard in the card industry is a luxurious double card, exotic paper and sweet texts or illustrations. I opt for a single postcard: simple design with its own statement. Texts with a face, labeled with humor. Humor puts things into perspective and connects. The texts are catchy at a glance and the cards are affordable. This makes it fun for everyone to send mail again. All this with success! 

Everything I make, I do with humor and love. Humor is so incredibly important as a social lubricant in this world. For example, if someone buys a card with the text: 'Mothers are always right', I enjoy that immensely, because then I know that soon a mother will receive this card from her child. I think it's great that I was able to contribute to that.

Maybe something for you too?
