MakerMail is a revolutionary co-op service delivering handmade goodness straight from our makers right to your door!
We’ve all been there: staring at the collection of knickknacks in the store, trying to find the perfect little gift for a friend or loved one. Finding a gift with a personal touch is difficult, especially in a marketplace full of things designed with profit first in mind. Enter MakerMail: a delightful new way to connect you with Makers across the globe via sweet moments and beautiful handmade objects. Each delivery comes straight from its Maker with a handwritten note, to create a precious and singular connection.
There are two lovely options to choose from for the 2014 Gifting Edition:

How Maker Mail Works
MakerMail is a collaborative project entirely created by the OMHG community of makers. We took an idea thrown around at an #OMHG chat and turned it into a beautifully-crafted movement directly connecting makers to buyers. Each item is handmade with love & shipped from the Maker to you, a series of sweet little goodies arriving to brighten your day & connect you with our community! We want your MakerMail to feel like a gift from a dear friend, so each package comes with a personal handwritten note.
Signups begin Oct 15, close Nov 17 and this round’s goodies will go out Nov 19 just in time for the holiday giving season. Products will be chosen at random for a sweet surprise at your door!

The internet can be noisy, in a glutted creative marketplace it is easy to forget that behind each product on a screen is a maker with an important story. MakerMail is a quiet reminder to cultivate small, intimate moments. We work together to connect real human goodness with mailboxes around the world and shine the OMHG spotlight on our makers. Applying to be one of our makers and being part of the planning team is open to any community citizen, we invite you to join the family.
