About Us

Karten Design Fabrik is a Berlin-based boutique greeting card company whose products are sold in design shops and art galleries worldwide. Karte's aesthetic represents careful and thoughtful design that reflects the understated vibrancy of the city in which it was created. Products are printed locally on paper sourced from sustainable forests or 100% recycled paper, and all products are printed carbon neutral where possible.

Liz and Garreth have left the initial challenges of building their business in a foreign language 10,000 miles from home and are now enjoying the slower pace of life in Berlin. They devote their energies to raising their child and selling their products to new customers around the world.

If you are interested in our products or in working with us, please contact us. We will be happy to advise you, answer your questions and send you a sample package of our work. We look forward to working with you.

The team

Karte is the brainchild of Australian couple Liz McKeown and Garreth Reardon. Liz has a professional background in design and focuses on the creative direction of the products, while ex-lawyer Garreth oversees the operations and management of the company.

Attracted by Berlin's vibrant creative scene, the two left their home in Sydney, Australia in 2011 with the goal of settling there and turning their ideas into a stationery business. With limited knowledge of German and dwindling savings, the first collection was designed and handcrafted in her living room during a snowy Berlin winter.
