A Sneak Peek

After releasing two new album lines in 2009, we’re busy at work behind the scenes on our next launch that will be available later this year. In the meantime, we have a few surprises up our sleeves that we’ll be sharing soon!

As we do every year, we sent out a fun card this week to all the wonderful dealers we work with from coast to coast to let them know that we’ll miss seeing them this year at the National Stationery Show, but we’re preparing some exciting things to come at Dauphine Press – edge painting is just one fun finishing touch that we’re adding to our repertoire!

Dealers on the east coast were treated to an interesting postmark on their “delight delivery” which were sent from the nation’s first post office located in Philadelphia’s Old City. Brides take note: this is the only post office in the country that hand cancels each piece of mail as a matter of course. The unique postmark bears the signature of Benjamin Franklin, the first Postmaster General: “B. Free Franklin.” Even the postmark date is set in vintage form, including the abbreviation for the month of May.

This is also the only post office in the country that does not fly the
American flag. Why? Because when it was established in 1775 we weren’t a country yet, so there was simply no flag to fly.
