We’re here today with another installment of Fine Details from The Fine Print. These are some of our favorite posts to share with you because they are full of all of the exciting things (big and small) that we have the pleasure of experiencing every day at Dauphine Press.
I think we’ll keep up the trend of starting off with gorgeous visuals. We have a bundle of images to share that are straight from our print studio in New York and our design studio in California. Of course we love every final pieces once they have been printed and embellished, but as true paper and print lovers we absolute adore the process. Take a look:
/1/ Isn’t this stack of cards with gold painted edges gorgeous?! Just imagine the endless possibilities for designs printed on those luminous cards! /2/ We couldn’t include gold without including silver. This piece has a little twist though – these cards fall into the Dauphine Press Couture category with the 4-ply cards, custom foil corner detail and silver painted beveled edges! Stunning! /3/ We love this action shot of a Marinwood save the date on press. /4/ Another action shot, but foil this time showing the roll of foil after stamping an intricate frame on to that same Marinwood save the date.
/5/ The process of hand-lining envelopes! /6/ That same envelope up close – isn’t the striped red and white liner adorable? Perfect timing for Valentine’s Day! /7/ One of the benefits of working with an amazing group of designers is the immaculate desks they keep. Here’s a little vignette from Matt’s desk. /8/ A familiar site – Pantone chips on busy desks as our design team plans out the latest update to our line (How’s that for a teaser? There’s more to come on that subject!).
To wrap up this Friday version of Fine Details from The Fine Print we thought we would share a few links:
~ We spotted our Auburn place card on one of our favorite daily reads recently, The Ritzy Bee Blog. Maria and Kelly have a way of finding the sweetest details and pairing them perfectly with other gorgeous elements and we were delighted to have one of our designs included in this recent blog post.
~ One of our cherished retailers, Parchment Nantucket, created a very special piece earlier this year that we were honored to design and letterpress print. Heidi shows the final framed piece on their blog.
