Kat And Drew's Profile

About

We're Kat and Drew and together we make cards. No, they're not ordinary cards - not even close. We try and pair every card we make with some kind of Keepsakes to Make Giving Cards a Special Occasion

This is How We Started:

Drew (me) was toiling away writing essays and pondering why in the world he would commit himself to writing so often. There was all this creativity bubbling inside of him but only stern, grammatically correct teachers to appreciate it. So he talked to his Mom one day (that's right - Kat is my mom) and she was feeling equally run down.

"Everything I do seems like it is under-appreciated! I work so hard and my creativity and brilliance is buried under a pile of my boss's indifference. It's like I'm not making a difference EVER! At ALL!" - ugh…

Drew had previously started writing down little saying while being bored in class or otherwise and wanted to cheer his ma up with something so late one night he sent her a bunch of witty little quips to try and cheer her up. When she got them the following morning, she called and woke him up (not cool!) and explained that she knew we had something here.

Kat was a floral designer and LOVED (and still loves) colour and noticed that when people give flowers they rarely have a nice card with them - usually that business card with "Congrats" or something equally lame. This was the first instance that we made a card.

But of course that wasn't good enough. If a business tag wasn't expressive enough, was a small card? Why not make the card something more? Why not make it a gift all in itself? You pay $5 at name brand card stores for a piece of paper anyway so why not pay the same and get a card and gift altogether?

Kat n' Drew Cards was born.

We could give the card to bosses or acquaintance friends without worrying about what kind of gift they'd like and not spend a fortune. We gave wine and flowers and gifts all with little treasures of cards on the surface. No more would we be hum-drum. This was about letting our spirit soar and creating anything we wanted - something actually of value that we could be proud of.

It has been hard but anything that is worth something is. That's also why we give to KIVA to help promote the next round of entrepreneurs get started. We also give money to WEFOREST to help plant trees worldwide. Part of your purchase goes towards all of them.

If you want more about us, need to know the in's and out's, want wholesale info or want to see a more broad collection of our stuff, you might also try and find us at our website which must remain un-named because of ETSY rules :) but you can find it!

Otherwise, we hope you enjoy the shop and our ideas! We hope to chat with you soon!
