Meet Our New Foil + Letterpress Wedding Invitation Suite – Hamilton

Though we were sad to hear that The Great Gatsby movie has been delayed from its original debut this winter, with the new release date of summer 2013 we actually love that the light and airy palette of our Hamilton invitation suite will be right at home for an art deco inspired wedding in the summer months!

Our Hamilton suite is all about color and detail. Our new Honeydew foil gives a subtle touch of color but a whole lot of shine framing the vintage typefaces and on the vintage French pattern printed on the back of the invitation card. The secondary highlight is subtlety at its best with the new Lemon painted edges and new Lemon Meringue stock used on the response card. We especially love how the Honeydew foil prints on the Lemon Meringue paper – looks good enough to eat! This entire suite is traditional at heart, but really shows off the vintage glamour feel through the sweet color palette and intricate frame and pattern. Bon appétit!

The Hamilton Suite

We’re loving Hamilton since it incorporates a number of the new custom design elements in our album — from the colored foil to the opaque Copper letterpress ink, to the fact that they both print beautifully on our premium letterpress papers as well as the vibrant Lemon Meringue stock. We hope you’re excited to visit your local Dauphine Press exclusive retailer to put your ideal stationery suite together — because we are certainly excited to see what you come up with using our new design elements!

Customize your suite – with our new fonts!

Here at Dauphine Press we get quite enthusiastic about typography. Along with the debut of our new designs, we also wanted to share with you the NEW selection of fonts we recently added to our toolbox! With the addition of the 14 new fonts below, we now have a total of 140 beautiful typefaces that you can choose from.

While some couples select their invitation suite directly from the designs shown in our albums – our fonts, motifs & ink colors can always be swapped at no additional charge. Below are a few of our favorite new fonts. To see the full balance of custom elements you have available to you, click here!

You have already seen a few of these in action in our latest new design posts. Our new Calistoga suite is a beautiful showcase of Piel and Fairfield artfully displays Carolyna. One thing both of these fonts have in common is a hand-lettered feel, which is something we are getting a lot of requests for lately. Calligraphy style fonts are a great way to bring that hand-lettered look in to your suite, without the cost of true hand calligraphy.

Have you picked a favorite yet? If so, any of the design consultants at our exclusive retailers can help you pull your wedding stationery suite together.

Customize your suite – with colored papers & NEW duplexing options!

Along with our recent new design posts we are also sharing with you more details on the new embellishments each new design showcases. Our latest new design, Fairfield, is printed on our new Luxe Board duplexed stock. Today we’re sharing with you everything you need to know about duplexing our colored papers.

All of the colored papers in our Design Library (a total of 37 different colors) are available as duplexed stocks — and in three different thicknesses. Here’s a great visual showing all of the options!

Note that our thickest option, our Luxe Board with the 30pt board mounted between two colored sheets, does show the white board (as seen in the image above) so we do recommend painted edges with our Luxe Board option — unless the white suits your aesthetic. The choice is yours!

As we mentioned last week, colored papers pair perfectly with our new opaque inks and foil {more to come on our expanded foil palette!}. Contact your local Dauphine Press exclusive retailer to see all of these options in person and to start designing your own custom suite!

Meet Our New Foil + Letterpress Wedding Invitation Suite – Fairfield

Today’s new invitation suite, Fairfield, has me sitting up straighter and speaking with a soft voice. This suite is so refined and sophisticated that it whisks me away from my desk right to this perfectly romantic inspiration board and extraordinary event.

Our team pulled together a few of our favorite new custom design elements to create this romantic suite — from the lattice pattern in Mist foil to the Luxe Board duplexed stock in London Fog featuring our new Caramel opaque ink in a traditional calligraphic typeface and finished with gold edge painting. It doesn’t get much more regal and bridal than this!

Fairfield Suite

We have really been enjoying the flexability of our new custom design elements. With the opaque inks and colored foil to match any palette and our new colored papers {more to come on our new colored foil and colored papers very soon!} we feel we could create just about anything you dream up!
