Creative Holiday Event Invitation Wins Award

DBT Holiday Invitation

Dubuque Bank and Trust – A Customer Success Story

We love to hear success stories from our clients about how one of our patented dimensional products achieved exactly what they are intended to do.  A perfect example we’d like to share is the success story of Dubuque Bank & Trust and their 2009 Holiday Event Invitation.

2010 marked the 75th year of business for Dubuque Bank & Trust.  To celebrate this important milestone, they wanted to kick-off the celebration with a unique event invitation for their annual holiday cocktail party.

3D Paper Greetings’ patented 3D tree snow globe greeting card was an elegant choice to commemorate DB&T’s success.  The dimensional event invitation, combined with a stylish pocket greeting card designed by DB&T’s creative team, doubled as a keepsake that would be saved and displayed long after the holiday event.

Dubuque Bank & Trust was so pleased with the event invitation, and the rave reviews received from attendees, that they decided to submit the design to the American Advertising Federation of Dubuque for consideration for the 2009 Addy Award.  Up against stiff competition, DB&T was thrilled to be awarded the “Silver Addy Award” under the category of Special Event Material.

Located in Dubuque, Iowa, this community bank opened doors in July of 1935 with just under 20 employees and has grown to one of the largest banking institutions in Iowa today.  DB&T prides themselves on their strong bond between the community, customers, employees and investors, and is proud of the success they have achieved in their 75 years in business.  For further information on Dubuque Bank & Trust, please visit
