Altenew's team is diverse on every level, from the Leadership Team to the Warehouse Team and beyond.

Altenew's Leadership Team consistently values diversity of thought, backgrounds, skillsets, and experiences.

Altenew has helped foster global connections between crafters since 2014.

Local initiatives for the company extend beyond crafting workshops, tradeshows, and meet and greets. Altenew has participated in multiple charities and community service projects all over the US. From regularly donating to the Food Bank of Central New York to organizing card drives for dozens of senior centers around the country, Altenew has always tried to stay consistent with local community service efforts. Globally, the company has donated to humanitarian organizations providing people in impoverished regions with resources for sustainability and meaningful impact.

The company’s goals include producing products that serve a wide range of crafting audiences, extending beyond the typical crafting designs to bring innovative and diverse inspired art to the paper crafting industry. The Altenew Product Development Team derives its product designs from a variety of cultures - finding inspiration from architecture of different civilizations and traditional artwork from different countries. Paper crafters from different backgrounds have been able to embrace each other’s cultures through card making and scrapbooking with these products. Altenew stamp sets include sentiments in different languages and celebrate different religious traditions. An ASL stamp set is inclusive to hard of hearing and deaf crafters, while Altenew’s career series celebrates different roles our community members play.

Altenew continues to push the envelope when it comes to serving diverse audiences while maintaining high-quality products. The Altenew team is always ready to bring each team member’s unique experiences to the table as the company continues to innovate in the paper crafting industry.
