It all began in 2014 with Chris and Laini Byrne.

Laini was a make-up artist & freelance graphic designer, Chris was a musician with a flair for business.

It was a "hair-brained scheme" ( one of many ). We'd sold our house and two successful businesses and threw ourselves at a new opportunity. We didn't realise at the time how much we had to learn, but it was something we'd become accustomed to doing together. We've always liked starting things from scratch.

Since then we have grown from half a dozen handmade greeting cards being sold at the local markets, to over 1000 designs available at hundreds of stockists throughout Australia & South Pacific.

Today the Pleasant Tree canopy is home to a colourful, beautiful and messy world that

comprises our two stationary brands: 

Sketchy and Pineapple Moon.

( It's also home to three kids and three cats with equal amounts of beautiful & messy! )


It's always been "to delight". But more than this, we have endeavoured to create high quality, Australian made products, using eco-friendly materials wherever possible. We are proud to use 100% recycled papers and envelopes. All our products are available to purchase "naked" without cello packets and even our shipping boxes and satchels are recycled & biodegradable. Our mission is to continue to evolve our company towards a sustainable future.
