cut&make was founded by Kate Bowden in the summer of 2011 in Berlin. It is a small stationery label that creates specially crafted paper products, which are sold in specialist shops in Berlin, London, New York and Copenhagen (see stockists).
Kate originally studied Fine Art at Oxford University and in 2002, she graduated with a Masters in Communication Art and Design from the Royal College of Art.
To date all products are produced/manufactured by local workshops in Berlin and we hope to continue in supporting our local businesses. These wonderful printers and craftsmen (working in the hinterhofs and trading estates of Berlin) include:
Keuledruck, Kreuzberg – Offset Printing, fantastic colour and paper specialists.
Novak Siebdruck, Kreuzberg – Great Screenprinters.
Druckwerkstätten, Wedding – Incredibly friendly Screenprinters
U-S-E, Wedding – a non for profit social project for people with special needs.
Stanztec, Reinickendorf – Very experienced die-cutters and embossers
Basta, Kreuzberg – Experienced and helpful steel benders, creating all our die-cut forms.
