Daphne Mitchell

About the Owner

Located in Fairfield, CT, DFM Stationery is owned and run by Daphne F. Mitchell. Daphne started her brick and mortar business in 1999 when she and her husband, Les started a family. She wanted to be able to have a business that allowed her to work from home and have flexible hours.

Born and raised in New York City, and a lifelong summer resident on Nantucket, Daphne was brought up understanding the importance of a handwritten note. Her love of paper products and careful attention to detail made the stationery business a perfect fit for Daphne.

About DFM Stationery

She has customers across the US as well as a few living abroad! “They email or call to let me know what they are looking for. After some research, I email them links from companies that I carry so they can see the various options. When they see the item they like, I help them pick the font, ink color, the perfect words, etc… whatever they need to create the perfect invitation, save-the-date, or personalized note card! Great designs can be shipped anywhere!”
