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.

Custom Parties By Bobbie

Upper left photo: We relied on texture and font layout to make a unique and elegant look for a Bar Mitzvah invitation. The grey suede layer gave just enough subtle interest against the silver deckle edge to make this invitation very sophisticated

Upper right photo: The dphone is in Lucite and be done several ways. It can be done in one thickness or two layers. With a double layer, the back has the dphone logo and apple with a Mogen David design above it. Very now and lots of fun! Text message anyone?

 Lower left photo: The disc is the newest look from the May Stationery Show. Lucite is becoming the new paper. It’s modern, it’s fun and it’s easy to personalize, not only by font and color of paper, but by mirror or glitter or layering of Lucite to see through one another. It is extremely versatile

Lower right photo: This invitation is very artsy because it’s based on an Andy Warhol design. It is fresh and fun, and could also be done without a picture but with just a design
