Our story

There is no coincidence… Semaphore’s founders got to know themselves in a plane, somewhere up in sky far above ground. Both love surprising each other and from experience, a surprise is a great atmosphere when you get it as well as when you prepare it. Semaphore has been created to allow you forwarding love and pleasure throughout time and even further.

Xavier’s story

His first daughter was 4 when he and his wife went apart. At that moment, facing an uncertain future, he felt the perfect time of saying how important his daughter was for him. In secret he wrote a letter to tell her his happiness being her father, saying how much significant she was and delightful pleasure to have her as his little princess. The letter was left aside to be delivered at her 20th birthday. It was his own way to fix an intense moment of love to be felt again many years later.

Isabelle’s story

All creations have a hidden story being the spark of the foundation. Semaphore comes from the substance of a moment in Isabelle’s life. Isabelle’s grandfather was an artist and from time to time he did some very nice paintings. One day, while she was still an innocent and pure child, she told her grandfather “When I will marry, will you be already dead?” The grandfather found that very funny and started, few days later, to draw a painting to be given, as a surprise, on her wedding day.

Many years later, how an emotional surprise it was when she received that famous painting on her wedding day whilst the grandfather was no longer present… What an incredible emotion, a sign of love throughout the time, an unforgettable moment, the sensation he will not have disappeared…

Isabelle and Xavier thought this could be the possibility for each and every one to experience this incredible emotional moment… Nowadays with Semapohre.

Your story

Grand-parents, leave a trace of your love for your grandchildren for a special birthday.

As parents, we want to give our best for our children. It is also by writing the essence of a particular moment and to let it travel hidden to the future till it can be lived one more time with or without you.

You’re feeling the end coming soon… think about all these who love you, you love them… leave a message for them for a future incredible surprise.

Friends also have a very important place in our lives. Writing messages to them to say how important they are in your eyes would probably be the most magic moment in a friendship story.
