Do you provide Tissue Lined envelopes?

Tissue lined envelopes are not available with HoneyTree.

When we initially looked into tissue lined envelopes we soon realised that the conflict between trying to select a tissue lining to match an artwork / illustration or a particular font colour could not provide the perfect match.

As our niche is illustrated and personalised bespoke stationery we have decided that if we were to only commission artworks to match various font and tissue palettes of colours we would stunt the individually of the exclusive artworks.

Stunning envelopes: All our envelopes are hand made 160gsm and included in the price as our A6+ cards A5+ are from the traditional size and more generous than modern A6 & A5 making standard envelopes redundant for our stationery.

Embellishment on envelopes: We do enable shoppers to have their chosen illustration printed on the reverse of the envelope for an additional embellishment on the online formatting and through the bespoke studio our creative team are also able to format and print ones address details on the reverse.

Why order a FREE electronic proof?

At HoneyTree Bespoke we highly recommend ordering an electronic (PDF) proof of your personalised stationery in order to ensure all is 100% in order.

The proof is a watermarked printable PDF (for which you will require Adobe Acrobat to view) version of your order, which can be viewed and printed from your computer. It will make proof reading, verifying proper alignment, size and positioning of text easier. If you choose to print a copy of your proof at home, your colour printer will not print precisely the same colours that will be produced from our high quality commercial equipment. Therefore this proof should not be used for colour validation.

We generate precisely what the customer submits. Please therefore double check carefully when placing your order. HoneyTree publishing Ltd is not responsible for proof reading or editing customer spelling, punctuation, abbreviation, capitalisation or any other personalised text or characters.

If you request an Eproof, we will automatically and instananeously save your document to your account. When your proof is ready for viewing we will e-mail you a link to it. It will reside in your "My Account/My Proofs" folder. From here you can edit your document and /or place your order.
