JNF newest logo 

With more than a century of experience caring for the land and people of Israel, no one can match Jewish National Fund’s depth of understanding of the Jewish homeland and what it means to the Jewish people. Unique and exquisite customized JNF invitations let you plant a tree or make a contribution toward JNF’s water projects in Israel in honor of each guest. You can also customize traditional JNF tree and water certificates with your own wording to use as invitations, favors, table signs or for candle-lighting ceremonies.

Top left: For a candy themed Bat Mitzvah, we used bright neon colors and a fun lollipop shape. This invitation was a sweet surprise when it arrived in a thick cardstock envelope

Top right: This basketball themed invitation was a slam dunk. With a four layer invitation on one side and a custom basketball hoop with a backboard on the other, the two sided foil stamped basketball shaped information card rounded out the set. To see customer’s reaction: 

Bottom left: Hannah’s rich sueded leopard invitation exceeded all expectations. To quote the client, “Thought you might like to know that I spoke to someone today who told me she hadn’t seen such beautiful invitations since one she received in 1986 for Martha Stewart’s daughter! High praise indeed! Everyone loves them!”

Bottom right: This invitation utilizes an action photo of your child playing his favorite sport and can be created in a variety of ways according to your vision, the sport being played and of course, your budget

Writing thank you notes is hard. You have to buy cards and stamps, hand write all the messages, address the envelopes, insert the cards and seal them by licking every envelope. Now try getting a 13 year old to do this 100 times. Good Luck! With Thankster, all your child has to do is type, copy, paste, and we do all the rest. And the cards can use their actual handwriting, and will look absolutely authentic. What used to take days and weeks, now takes hours. Best of all, it’s fun! RESERVE YOUR THANK YOUS BY APRIL 15TH AND SAVE 30%. Create an account at and click on prepay in the top nav bar, then enter promo code mitzvahspecial.

Other Thankster features: • If you have writer’s block, Thankster offers suggested thank you messages • We can print on your existing cards, if you already have them • Personalize the cover with names and photos or add QR codes to link to websites and videos.

Thankster’s cards are printed on textured, heavy weight stock. We can also print on your stationery, if you have it already. The handwriting we print for the messages looks absolutely real (can use your own), with characters that vary. Messages can be easily personalized for every recipient

Upper left photo:
This invite was designed for a stylish teen who wanted something trendy but didn’t want to forget her Jewish roots. She went with a pink marbleized lucite plaque. We created a Judaic logo for the top where she could show off her cool nickname. We added a pink linen box and had a big hit!

Upper right photo: What kind of invitation does a Celtics basketball fan send out? The challenge was to create an elegant invite to please his parents and incorporate the Bar Mitzvah boys passion. I believe we accomplished just that. Along with a gold foil monogram and gold foil printing, this plaque invite also has a basketball patterned pocket on the back to secure all the enclosure cards. I think we took it to the hoops on this one!

Lower left photo: This one-of-a-kind invite has many different dimensions. The raised silver die-cut name, the clear lucite plaque and the back pocket made of a unique rubber-like material gives this masculine invite it’s smooth touch. Class at it’s best!

Lower right photo: It’s time to get the party stared with a little Purple Power! This unique high end invitation with it’s glitter ink, flourishes and purple glitter bottom paper gives lots of sparkle. The reverse side of this thick elegant invitation is also covered with the same purple glitter paper. Definitely Glittertastic!
