Designer’s Inspiration {week one hundred nine}


We’re obsessed with this visual! Graphic chalkboard typography never gets old. The control and creativity of the artist is simply perfection! The mix of fonts has us dreaming of a type inspired wedding invitation – our Auburn and Stinson suites are perfect examples of type as the focal point.

Get The Look – Art Museum Inspired Wedding Invitation Palette

Our Get the Look posts help you find your way from the gorgeous images you find on Pinterest {or your favorite wedding blog or magazine} to a perfectly inspired wedding invitation color palette! Using our Custom Wedding Portfolio design elements we pull different colors, textures, patterns and finishes to create a unique wedding wardrobe for your special day. To help pull the look together we suggest starting with ink and paper, then moving on to embellishments like edge painting, envelope liners and pocket folds.

This rich scene in an art museum is a perfect example. We love the pattern print and mix of blues and teals so we pulled those elements into our stationery palette. The timeless jewel-toned color palette mixed with the warm copper evoke and art museum feel that we couldn’t wait to recreate in stationery.


We started with a deep Cerulean blue printed on our Natural White cotton letterpress paper. We decided to go with a Luxe Board finish on the card stock {layering three sheets together!} to create a high-end museum board feel. Next up are the embellishments – framing the invitation with a gorgeous Copper painted edge and shimmering Lapis envelope liner, this look is complete!

We would love to see the images that are inspiring you! Share your favorite images with us or your local Dauphine Press retailer so we can help you pull together the perfect design elements for your wedding invitation suite!

Designer’s Inspiration {week one hundred eight}


We’re drawn to the organic watercolor pattern on this chaise. The varied pattern paired with the stark contrast of the color palette make quite a statement. We are always trying to capture this same striking first impression with our invitation designs. It’s the perfect way to get your wedding guests excited about your wedding day!

Trend Alert – Banana Leaves

We love seeing this iconic palm print on everything from interiors {using the original Martinique wallpaper} to textiles {like these tropical pants!}. You can’t beat the luxe feel this classic pattern evokes.


This timeless banana leaves pattern  is also trending in wedding invitation design. Our Presidio wedding invitation suite suits this look with an emerald, jade and gold color palette and the can’t-miss palms on the invitation envelope.

To incorporate this trend into your wedding or special event using our Custom Wedding Portfolio. Visit your local Dauphine Press retailer to design your custom wedding invitations!
