Nope, you’re not looking at a typo: Happy INDEPENDENTS Day is right. Today, we want to give a shout out to all the independent thinkers and doers out there in the world.
Here’s what the two holidays have in common: they’re both about declaring (and then celebrating) independence. Sure, America has its share of problems, but so does every other country. America remains an amazing place where opportunities exist and magical things can happen. There is a ton of creativity within the United States, and MAQET is lucky to be headquartered in San Francisco, arguably one of America’s most diverse and creative cities.
At their cores, both America and MAQET are about freedom of ideas, unhampered creativity, following your dreams and being individuals. OK, so it might not be the Declaration of Independence, but MAQET has a story, too. MAQET was founded on the belief that there shouldn’t be obstacles to making cool, unique and collectible stuff. MAQET is a platform for enabling everyone’s creativity, and we do this without overseas factory assembly lines. We think it’s possible for a small company to play the field with the big guys, as we’ve seen it happen again and again! We make MAQETs right here in California, one piece at a time, just for you.
As independent creatives, we have a feeling that despite the national holiday, you, like us, may be hard at work today. MAQET and our new Fourth of July friend, BOXY SPARKLER, wish you a very Happy Independents Day.
