Featured Design – Bar Mitzvah


We love when one good design inspires several others. This has definitely been the case with our Camille
– so many of our dealers have been sending in orders for this design and we are constantly amazed at the level of creativity that arrives on every order form. This is exactly what our invitations line is meant for. Many designs can be deconstructed and modified to suit each client and their unique occasion. The best part? There’s no additional charge for us to do this. We supply the tools, our dealers and their clients supply the creativity to reimagine the designs in their own unique way.

We received a great order for a Bar Mitzvah invitation recently from Sincerely Yours, Diane in Boca Raton, Florida. Diane Bender, the eponymous owner, worked with her client to customize the design. They started with a sample of our Camille invitation which was of course too feminine in feel, but her client loved the way the design was framed out. Knowing we can customize any design in any way for no additional fees, they chose several elements from the Dauphine Press Design Library. The foliate background of the Camille
was replaced with masculine stripes and the palette moved to a steel gray and two shades of blue. Diane and her client called out the specifications for the invitation design, but they wanted the additional enclosure cards to relate to the invitation design without matching it entirely. Our designers took the lead on laying out the other cards. Diane relates “The Dauphine designers were a huge help on this job, as always.”

We think it looks smashing!

Spoiled Bitch – Logo & Business Cards

Suzanne Lavallee is a fantastic San Francisco-based web designer who has started a new site called Spoiled Bitch. Let’s just start by saying, it’s not what you’re thinking…”Spoiled Bitch is a weekly email newsletter hopelessly devoted to keeping you fashionably informed about dog culture in the San Francisco Bay Area.”

The site content ranges from secret training tips to Fido-friendly getaways to must-have new gear
and upcoming events.

Dauphine designer Katrina McHugh designed the tennis ball logo as well as the looping leash illustration. Suzanne says:

I want to thank all of you for helping to bring this to fruition. Creating such a stunning logo has not only garnered oodles of praise, but makes me so wildly proud. The darling icon lives proudly on Facebook and the logo and collateral pieces appear on the website and newsletter. As I’ve shared before, working with all of you was one of the most delightful experiences I’ve had: talent, timely and team work.”

We want to congratulate her on the launch of her site and her new blog. Franny and Frijolito are all over it.
