We’re loving these gorgeous bright pink dresses with bold floral prints from Saloni Rathor’s Spring Summer 2013 Elements collection. They have us dreaming of fashion-forward letterpress wedding invitations in a daring olive and fuchsia palette, highlighting bold patterns.
Hope you have an inspiring weekend!
We are very fortunate to have a team that brings creativity and spirit to their work and is invested in providing each client with a truly custom design. Through our regular Designer’s Pick posts, our designers will be choosing their favorite suites to share with you.A huge fan of wood type poster design, our Auburn suite has become one of my personal favorites. Combining casual and rustic elements, Auburn expresses a country-chic vibe with its use of vintage wood type-inspired fonts. The type treatment is so strong that it radiates a cheerful, fun-loving tone sans any specific motifs. The oversized ampersand acts as the focal point – the ideal visual element symbolizing the upcoming union. Another standout detail of this particular variation is the use of three letterpress ink colors. The intentional overlapping of inks (also know as “overprinting”) and the crosshatch background pattern give the card extra dimension. Auburn is the perfect design for a fun and artistic couple looking to add some color and history to their letterpress wedding invitations.

The Larkspur Suite is one of our best sellers here at Dauphine Press, so we are very excited to show you a gorgeous and exceptionally regal customization of this very versatile design. Our exclusive retailer, By Invitation Only, worked with their client to create a stately version of this letterpress and foil invitation suite. Still loving the engraved style font paired with a classic serif as well as the decor inspired patterns of the original, this bride and groom chose to alter the color palette, making this suite their own. It’s nice to see that with a simple and smart color palette shift the overall feel of a design can be personalized. You don’t always have to reinvent the wheel – just pick your favorite elements and we will run with it!
One of the best parts of making changes like the ones shown above is that there is no additional cost to do so!

As we mentioned yesterday, we are all buzzing about the release of The Great Gatsby movie this weekend. Since it’s on our minds, we wanted to share with you this art deco-inspired interior by Kelly Wearstler. We just love her design, which seamlessly blends clean lines with a sophisticated palette of dark brown and golds. And the doors…they absolutely make this space spectacular with their geometric pattern and gold touches!
Hope you have an inspiring weekend!
We have been anxiously awaiting the release of The Great Gatsby movie for some time now and we are thrilled that the date has finally arrived! We are looking forward to enjoying all of the visual goodness the movie promises to showcase. In the meantime, we found even more of the luxury of the 1920s displayed in a recent Vogue cover shoot. Playing Daisy Buchanan in the movie, Carey Mulligan is all about that vintage glamour feel in this fresh color palette from the shoot.
To capture the art deco feel, our team is envisioning our opaque, caramel letterpress ink paired with metallic copper foil on a thick duplexed card in the perfect neutral shade of cameo. With decorative accents like the ironwork-inspired pattern and a pop of raspberry double-faced satin ribbon, the look is complete!

Are you planning to see the movie this weekend? Well, once you have, and are inspired to create your 1920s-inspired stationery, any of our exclusive retailers would be more than happy to help you turn that inspiration into an incredible letterpress wedding invitation suite!
