Where we started — Cardtorial
Our story began with a simple idea, a unique wooden card, made to last. When we started selling at local craft fairs then expanded with sales to online shoppers and store owners, the reaction was surprise and delight. And soon we discovered that those people wanted to share that joy with their loved ones. The encouragement we felt during those first few years convinced us that something started on hope and possibility could become a sustainable business built on connection and meaning. We were thrilled.
Who we are now — Hereafter
Energized and inspired, over the last seven years we’ve grown our product line, created new designs and introduced special offerings that help people find gifts of love for almost any occasion. As a small business (Cardtorial) we made things we hoped people would want to give. But we’ve evolved into a more thoughtful brand (Hereafter) focused on making things people want to give and receive, strengthening the connections that are important in our lives. It’s an opportunity we welcome, informing what we create, how we produce, and everything it takes to build a culture dedicated to the experience of gifting with joy.
A note from Yvonne
I am overwhelmed with the love and support that’s allowed my little idea to grow into a place where our team of passionate individuals can create something wonderful together. The experience has allowed me to leave the corporate world, be a truer version of myself and do something that adds a bit of joy to peoples’ lives...including mine. Taking the risk and creating what has become Hereafter has opened life in ways I never could have planned. So thank you to everyone. And to anyone who has been thinking about making a change, I encourage you to go do it.
