Providing the best in European design in paper
Notes & Queries was started more than 30 years ago by Alan Harnik, known affectionately as "Big Al" to our customers and friends. The company was conceived in Madagascar, and then nurtured from a small pushcart in Fanueil Hall Marketplace in Boston in the last 1970's. At that time, Alan was selling handmade cards & crafts from Madgascar and American handmade greeting card artists. The company grew from a pushcart to a basement apartment to an old airplane factory with no heat to a 12,000 square foot warehouse over a period of 35 years. Even now, Alan, along with co-owner and daughter, Vanessa, share the same passion for the business he had those 30 years ago, and Notes & Queries continues to bring you the very best in design-oriented greeting cards and stationery from Europe. For anyone who has met "Big Al", you know there is noone in the industry more enthusiastic or passionate about a great card than Alan.
Alan and Vanessa are fortunate enough to work with some of the very best paper designers and are thrilled to offer their customer card designs that are uniquely special and memorable; greeting cards that are truly a gift.
