The Fine Print

A blog by Dauphine Press

  • 4.24-AM-INSPIRATION

    We all have our favorite creative times during the day, and for me, it’s early in the morning while most of the world – well, mostly my children – remain quiet. With our “A.M. Inspiration” series, I post images of what currently has me inspired, the exciting new ideas I am dreaming up on my quiet mornings and share my thoughts on how to translate each piece of inspiration into stationery design and wedding invitations.

    It was in college, while studying art and design, that I fell in love with chinoiserie. The Chinese-inspired prints have an ethereal feel that heightened my appreciation for this pattern.

    This contemporary image, with the brushed metallic silver background that combines so beautifully with the watercolor-like-feel of the intricate and fanciful botanical imagery, is quite an inspiration. The winding tree branches painted in an unexpected robin’s egg blue color adds to the overall whimsical quality of the print.

    To translate these exquisite details into a stationery suite, I would simply suggest shimmering foil stamping paired with a soft letterpress color palette on a metallic neutral card stock. Some of our most popular designs were inspired by items and elements that aren’t traditionally associated with weddings. A chinoiserie-inspired wedding invitation is officially on my design to-do list!

  • This Palm Beach Monogram customization is the perfect example of how to play with two key design elements – scale and layout. We love the eye-catching results that can be achieved when it’s done right! Haley and Ryan worked with Lindsey at Mrs. Post Fine Stationery, one of our exclusive retailers in Memphis, on this custom design. Their choice of a large palm tree off to one side and the slanted text (a nod to our Fairfield invitation) make for a stunning impression for their guests when they open this delightful invitation and prepare for what is sure to be a memorable day!

    We’re drawn to the color palette of warm neutrals and pop of turquoise in this fashion image. From the details and repeating patterns in the pleets of her dress to the architecture in the background, we’re inspired!

    Hope you have an inspiring weekend!
