We are constantly in awe here of the intricate, beautifully hand-crafted work the employees in our printing and stationery factories do day after day. Many of them have been here for decades painting borders by hand, engraving names and images with enviable patience and making sure each and every detail is absolutely perfect before our customers open that Dalton Blue box.
With that in mind, here is a collection of images — taken by our wonderful resident photographer, Trisha — of some of the hands that make such fine craftsmanship possible every day.

Precision is just one of the details we pride ourselves on, which means each duplexed invitation is hand-measured for a perfect border.
