Let me introduce: I am Marchien de Jong, 29 years old, married and mother to a 4-year-old son and a 10-month-old son. I turned my hobby into beautiful things, my profession! Studio Jong has been my company since 2016. I make play, wall and interior stickers for young and older(s). Every day I make customers happy with my self-designed products.
Let’s get back in time. In 2015 I completed my education in HBO Pedagogy and then I went to work. I worked some afternoons a week and sometimes a Saturday. That was ideal. That’s how I was able to build the company. In early 2016 I received more and more orders and decided to register with the KVK. A few months later, I tied the knot and stopped working for the boss. Over time I built my own website and gradually filled the webshop. For a more complete range I also bought in other nice products. But From January 2018 I decided to focus only on the stickers and that is very good!
At the time, the range consisted of only wall stickers for children’s rooms. But nowadays I have a wide range of play stickers, interior stickers and personalised stickers. I do the whole process from design to product myself. First, I’ll draw a picture on paper. I convert this into the software and edit it. The machine then cuts out the stickers. And all from the dining table in our living room. Studio Jong’s products are sold by a total of 12 other webshops. When I started, I didn’t dare dream this!
I love being creative. ‘Create something awesome today’ is my motto (it’s also on my favourite shirt).
A day not made something cool is a day not lived 😉
In the webshop I also want to inspire you to get started yourself. On the inspiration page you will find all kinds of fun DIY (do it yourself) roadmaps that you can get started with.
You don’t have to think of it all yourself, but be inspired!
Did you make something beautiful? Then I like to see that again. On Instagram, you can tag us by mentioning @studiojong_com in the post or by using #studiojong.
Making beautiful unique products makes me really happy! I am regularly asked: can you also … Create? I think that’s the best assignment: to make something beautiful based on a customer’s wish. In the webshop I also sell many articles that can be personalised, such as birthday window stickers and front door stickers.
