Because special moments are gifts...
Whether it's a wedding, birth, family celebration or an unforgettable moment: we help people to celebrate, share and capture their special moments with beautiful cards, photo products and gift ideas. Each product is designed exclusively by our in-house design team, can be easily personalized in our shop and is then lovingly manufactured and packaged in our own print shop. In addition to the passion for first-class stationery and designs, our entire team is united by one desire: to continually exceed the expectations of our customers.

we are Jennifer, Ulrich and Sebastian. In 2019 we succeeded the founders Jennifer and Christoph Behn, who developed the company from a creative idea to market leadership in just eight years.
Now it's our turn, together with a strong, international team. Together we want to expand and continue the success story of kartenmacherei with new chapters.
In addition to our mission, we are united by the desire to make a real difference with our work. That's why we have created an environment in which there is no "we've always done it this way" and live an appreciative New Work culture.
The History of kartenmacherei
How it all started ...
"We can do better than that!" – Jennifer Behn's idea of designing her own stylish birth announcements is the starting point for kartenmacherei in 2010. Christoph and Jennie have just become parents to their first son Anton and want to share the good news with their family and friends. But none of the existing providers meet their requirements in terms of design and quality. As the son of an entrepreneur, Christoph takes the initiative and founds kartenmacherei. A year later, the young company moved from the family's top floor to its first office on Lake Ammer in Bavaria.
