You’re making this so difficult (and we couldn’t be happier)

Since  we announced the Tree-Free Canada Arts Project in early spring, our hopes were eager for an enthuesastic response by at the very least, a  handful of Canadian artists.

We’re excited to say our hopes and expectations were more than met.

This journey has been one of the most welcoming and positive experiences in the history of our company, we’ve heard from Canadians from all walks of life, each one of them so excited to share their impressive creations.

Our desks and inboxes  are full of so many  inspiring pieces that it’s honestly going to be difficult to choose. To have such problems, this is the kind of “busy” you dream of being.

From all of us here at Tree-Free Greetings Canada, our thanks to you for supporting and promoting this project.

I am happy to announce, it will be an ongoing event. All submissions will be kept on file for upcoming card wave reviews.

While we begin the process, there is still time to join in. Simply drop an email to us at cards*at*tree-free.ca (replacing the *at* with an @ of course) and you’re in!

Our review board will begin selecting designs for the first wave of Canada Arts Project cards at the end of the month. We’ll then start reaching out to the many talented people who submitted.

Email us for any questions or ask us a question on Twitter.@TreeFreeCanada

Tree-Free Greetings are distributed in Canada by MapArt Publishing.  Cards are printed in Canada using post consumer materials and using vegetable inks. Save Canadian Trees and Jobs by choosing Tree-Free.

MapArt Day Trip Rockwood Conservation Area

The following is the second in our series of great Ontario day trips that can be had using the 2017 MapArt Ontario Road Atlas

Rockwood conservation area (located on page 32 4-C of the MapArt Ontario Road Atlas) is just outside of Guelph and offers a number of unique attractions and experiences for a day trip.

In addition to excellent hiking trails, camp sites and a river for canoeing and swimming, the park contains unique attractions such as the remains of a mill built in 1867,  something you’re encouraged to touch and explore.

However, the main attraction to Rockwood are the geological features such as the “Giant’s Kettles” potholes, glacial bluffs and the series of 12 caves on the property that will keep visitors young and old interested.

Rockwood was a real hit for our family and we heartily recommend a visit this summer.
