Hi, I'm Janine!

Kwohtations is proudly a woman + Asian-owned business.

I started making cards to address the real-life ups and downs that so many of us experience, but don't always talk about. My cards are for those of us who sometimes feel alone or "other" in some way, and my hope is that they bring a smile (or laugh) of recognition and a feeling of being seen.

I believe in creating meaningful goods with intention—I print each card one-at-a time on an antique printing press, and then paint in all colors by hand, so each card is unique. Like you.
