On May 19, 2013 at the Chelsea Piers in New York City, Marjolein received a LOUIE Award for Lifetime Achievement from the Greeting Card Association. This award is recognizes the best greeting cards, invitations, and announcements distributed in the U.S.
Monika Brandrup, Chair of the 25th Anniversary LOUIE Awards said:
“[t]he industry veterans on both committees believe it is important to take this opportunity to not only acknowledge but also celebrate — in a very public way — the enormous impact [Marjolein] has had on our industry by enabling consumers to both acknowledge and celebrate the important people, relationships and occasions in their own, personal lives.”
The event was a huge success and Marjolein enjoyed the company of many friends and family to share the honor.
