What are note cards and how are they used?

A Note card is a single card with a pre-printed design on one or both sides of the card that can be used for all manner of social communications. Unlike the Notelet which takes the form of a folded card, the card has only two faces on which to write anything from a short message, perhaps to arrange or confirm a meeting, to perhaps a thank you note once that meeting has taken place.

How does a Note card differ from a Correspondence card?

Whereas a correspondence card is invariably personalised and will have either your name or your name, address and contact details printed upon it, a Notecard by contrast is usually a pre-printed card that bears no personalisation but is instead decorated with a design that is generic and not unique to your cards alone. These designs can take the form of small motifs, of charming illustrations, of a cipher or device, or a pattern that brings interest and often colour to the card. Sometimes the decorative element is printed on just one side of the card whereas on other occasions it may be extended to or feature on both sides. Our ever growing range includes both types and we intend adding further new designs of both types as well as plain cards and envelopes over regular intervals.

Are Note cards suitable for all occasions?

Notecards are extremely versatile but they will not necessarily be suitable for all uses or all occasions. On the one hand space is limited, so, if you need to correspond at length, then writing sheets may suit your needs better. Equally, they tend to suit informal social communication and there will be times when personalised writing paper or a personalised correspondence card with your details printed upon it would better suit correspondence with those people outside your immediate social circle, such as perhaps tradespeople or those providing legal or financial services.

For many other occasions though, they can be used interchangeably with the correspondence card and gives you the opportunity, by your choice of design, to reflect your mood at the time of sending, to introduce variety and colour and, by keeping a selection of different designs to hand, allow you to pick a card that you believe will appeal to the recipient.
