Get The Look – Sweet Treat

In our “Get the Look” series from the Dauphine Press design department, we share some of our favorite hot new style finds and make suggestions for how you can “get the look” using the many custom elements available to you in our design library. Keep in mind that ALL of our stationery suites receive a designer’s touch and every one of our designs is customizable, so pairing the color palette below with any of our motifs or fonts allow us to create a stationery suite that is unique to you.

We are constantly pulling inspiration from fashion and interior design magazines, blogs and the world around us and we love nothing more than to daydream about how to translate a specific style into a beautifully printed piece of stationery.

The subject of today’s post is a fresh and pretty ad for the Louis Vuitton Spring 2012 collection. This delicious image incorporates soft pastels and sweet details that inspired our designers to explore our design library and pull swatches and elements that would recreate this look in a sweet stationery wardrobe. They’re sharing their findings with you here. Enjoy!

Louis Vuitton

Dauphine Press Letterpress Foil Paper Palette

This quote from the company says it all: “The spirit of our Spring/Summer 2012 collection is reflected beautifully in this new ad campaign,” says Louis Vuitton Artistic Director Marc Jacobs. “All the tone and texture of the collection – the lightness, the prettiness, the broderie anglaise, the millefueille layers of organza – are recreated in these wonderful images by Steven Meisel. It is all very soft and very sweet, yet at the same time very bold and very graphic.”

Can’t get enough of the Louis Vuitton Spring 2012 collection? Check out a video about the collection and ad campaign and view the collection on the runway.

Real Dauphine {Baby Announcement}

We’re back today with details and images of Chelsea’s birth announcement. As we mentioned in our last post, the inspiration for this piece came from our Marinwood save the date. With it’s gorgeous first panel, second panel fit for a photo and the last panel for details, it is the perfect format for a baby announcement.

Not wanting a typical pink baby announcement (or nursery, or 1st Birthday party!), Kendra chose our buttercup ink along with a custom coral color (which is coming soon to our official color palette, called papaya) to transform the save the date in to a sweet baby announcement. Printed on our natural white letterpress stock and paired with a black and white photograph of Chelsea, this customization was complete!
