We design, produce & distribute unique designs.

1. The Bureau

Karten Design Fabrik was founded in 2012 by two creative minds with the aim of producing stationery and accessories that reflect the modern yet understated style Berlin is known for.

Noticing a gap in the market for clean, minimalist cards, Karten Design Fabrik used this forward-thinking approach to design a range of Christmas cards that use geometric shapes and muted colors to stand out from the crowd.

The collection garnered press and awards, and the signature cards are now available in leading design, stationery and bookstores around the world. These are the foundations of Karten Design Fabrik.

2. Our Focus

Karten Design Fabrik specializes in designing and manufacturing greeting cards for the corporate environment.

We are the choice of many leading media, technology, legal and architectural firms looking for a bespoke design and quality product for their clients.

We have been in business since 2012 and are currently stocked in some of the leading art and design stores across Germany.

We relish the challenge of creating unique designs for our clients and pride ourselves on our reputation for delivering considered, impactful and memorable products.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch, we would be happy to discuss further questions and send you a sample pack of our work.

I look forward to working with you, Liz and the Karten Design Fabrik team.

3. Our Expertise & Quality

Our Karten Design Fabrik cards are designed and manufactured in Berlin using the highest quality materials.

Our most popular material is 350GSM off-white board, a FSC & PEFC certified premium uncoated paper without optical brighteners (OBA).

As a result, our cards offer an excellent writing surface for fountain pens, ballpoint pens, pencils or markers. There is no 'ghosting' or run, and the quality is clear in their substantial and textured feel.

All of our cards are printed in a small family business in Kreuzberg, Berlin, allowing us to support local expertise and craftsmanship.

We also prefer to employ people rather than machines, so each card is individually inspected and packaged by hand.

Design Philosphy & Client base

We have nurtured strong personal relationships and built our experience by working with some of the biggest names in German design houses, including Modulor, Connox GmbH, Manufaktum & Magazin.

The Karten Design Fabrik philosophy is to bring something out of the ordinary to celebrate and give away. In both design and production, Karte delivers products that feel distinctive, thoughtful and current.

'I love designing cards and gift wrap as they are not commodities. Like a work of art, they only exist to be beautiful and expressive.'- Liz.

The aesthetics of the Karten Fabrik's design is modern and contemporary. We focus on basic design elements like shape and space, then develop our ideas with color and detail to create designs that are unique and considered.

Our designs convey emotions and feelings through graphics and without the use of text. In this way, the cards can be individually determined by the giver. This approach creates an interesting space for interpretation, self-expression and inspiration.
