World Forestry Day – is an event created to remind communities of the importance of forests and the many benefits which we gain from them. The concept of World Forestry Day originated at the 23rd General Assembly of the European Confederation of Agriculture in 1971; and later that year, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation gave their support and agreed that it should be observed every year around the world. The day aims to celebrate and educate in three key areas of forestry: protection, production and recreation.
At HoneyTree are acutely aware that we are all writing letters and social correspondence less nowadays. We believe that when one does ‘put pen to paper’, we are looking to make a lasting impression, that’s why we started Honey Tree, so selecting the most appropriate cards / papers for the task in hand is an important consideration.
For some kinds of correspondence, only real stationery will do. If you are writing a love letter, a sympathy note, a thank you card, or a letter of congratulations, you don’t want to send such meaningful musings on paper you tore out of your spiral bound notebook. Quality stationery adds a depth of sincerity to your words plus letters and cards are always opened (email are not!).
What is Post Quarto writing paper (PQ)?
Post Quarto writing paper is THE traditional size of writing paper, favoured by the Royal Household, and fits perfectly between the office standard A4 (which is quite intimidating to write on due to its size, but convenient for today’s desktop printers), and A5, which is a lovely gift set size. For the discerning letter writer therefore, Post Quarto writing paper is the perfect standout option.

Whats in a name? For a couple of years we were thrilled to be No1 on Google for Correspondence cards, (which is ranked by sales and design) then late in 2014 we found that whilst still No1 it became apparent that people wanting our lovely correspondence cards were actually searching for note cards, which are the same thing. We quickly realised this and changed the name to correspondence note cards.
So what is the difference between Correspondence Cards and Note Cards?
Correspondence cards and note cards are identical, however they cause a lot of confusion as traditionally they were referred to as correspondence cards; it is only recently that they have become known as note cards. To help save confusion at HoneyTree we often use both terms when referring to these cards.
At HoneyTree, we believe sending personalised cards is about being expressive, demonstrating your personality and adding those extra finishing touches that show your family and friends you’re thinking of them, it makes your message truly stand-out. As the main focus of this season lies with traditional Christmas cards, we wanted to remind you about the importance of the post-festive thankyou card.
How is a note card different from a Christmas card?
Note cards differ from the traditional Christmas card with their flat design, as opposed to the latter which is more commonly a folded card. A note card puts emphasis on the handwritten message – the ultimate personal touch – rather than the front facing design of a folded card. Your note card is perfect for all family members, friends and long-distance relatives who would love to hear that you were happy with their thoughtful gift, and if appropriate, how you’re planning or how you’ve already made use of it.
