Hi All! I’m scribing on behalf of Maxine today. We interviewed her in the office the other day for this blog post. Maxine is one of our lovely, indispensable studio hands!
How long have you been working with Cardtorial?
A few months — I started in the summer.
What are your responsibilities?
Whatever Yvonne says! Haha. When I’m in the studio, I’m in charge of making these amazing cards! I also help with shipping retail and wholesale orders. Shipping may seem like the most basic/straightforward task, and in some instances it can be. But with so many SKUs, different customers and domestic and international orders, it gets complicated quickly and I know first hand fulfilling orders takes a lot of time and effort.
What big, long-term goals do you have for the brand?
I want to be able to walk into a store —one of my go-to stores for products that are unique, cute and handmade— and see Cardtorial there. I want to see Cardtorial everywhere! :)
What do you enjoy the most about working with Cardtorial?
I’ve enjoyed learning how to work independently in the studio, be resourceful and self sufficient. It’s been interesting watching Yvonne figure out how to make things or tackle tasks she’s never done before and I’m carrying that resourcefulness into my life outside of the studio.
What are your favorite Cardtorial goodies?
Man, that’s a hard one. I love a lot of the products that are very simple, but with great messages. Eat Cake for Breakfast might be my favorite card. I love the journals because they are totally inspirational.
What inspires you?
Nature. Travel. There is little that is more beautiful than what we find naturally.
And a random fun fact.
I want to own a Chipotle one day! (Also, Maxine loves Michael Jackson)
