about haute note

Long ago, in a world without email, e-vites and instant messaging – before a few hurried lines of type zapped through cyberspace became a socially acceptable way to express deep sentiment – people sent cards. Tangible, ink and paper cards that could be displayed on a mantelpiece or fridge before getting tucked away somewhere special to mark a moment in time.

In this spirit, Haute Note is a modern take on the centuries-old tradition of personalized social stationery, offering elegant cards that reflect the distinct taste and style of the sender. But don’t let the term 'social stationery' fool you. Our cards aren’t just for ladies who lunch. They’re for anyone with an eye for design and a love of the written word.

Because, despite the current obsession with electronic communication, we believe that some messages still deserve 'special delivery' – and for these we’ll take a mailbox over an inbox any day!

Haute Note was started in 2006 by Geraldine Zinsli and Yasmeen Strang, two young moms with a passion for paper.  Today, Lorie and Bob Gray are committed to the same quality of service and accessible, affordable, personalized stationery our customers have come to know and trust. 

In 2017, Lorie has continued to expand the Haute Note brand, by creating
Handmade Hellos by Haute Note -- One-of-a-kind handmade art cards, sold individually, and available through the Etsy website.
