Get the Look – In Full Bloom

In our regular 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 translate the same look into your wedding stationery 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 and embellishments below with any of our motifs or fonts allows us to create a stationery suite that is unique to you!

We love the simplicity displayed in this photo of Carey Mulligan for Harper’s Bazaar, UK. There is such beauty in the limited color palette and composition — one that could artfully be translated into stationery. We are loving soft and serene color palettes for wedding stationery these days, which is what our team pulled from this image. Imagine our soft and cheerful sea glass ink letterpress printed on one of our tree-free 100% cotton invitation envelopes greeting your guests {how about a little something like this}. When they open the envelope, an invitation printed in gold foil on a thick duplexed card in napa stock is revealed. One that has been draped in the most luxurious bisque double-faced satin ribbon. It’s all in the details!

Designer’s Inspiration {week nineteen}

This dreamy photograph showcases the extra romantic color palette of pinks and reds. After seeing this image, we’re thinking that our rouge, shell and varnish letterpress inks would be a great color combination for a wedding invitation or valentine card. Wouldn’t you agree?

Hope you have an inspiring weekend!

Suite Spotlight – Ainsley Diecut + Letterpress Wedding Invitation

September is the perfect time for a wedding! Well, any time of year is perfect for a wedding, but September is the perfect time for an Ainsley wedding! Our Ainsley design has the perfect formula for a late summer wedding – one where hints of fall are sprinkled throughout the details. As our design team’s inspiration board displays, the salmon and tobacco palette speak a little to both seasons! Salmon has the ability to go light and bright {which is essential for those hot summer days} but is also beautiful when paired with a deeper shade that reminds us all of the approaching season.  And, tobacco is a great neutral to pair with any shade, any time of year. The mix creates an event with gorgeous depth!

Dauphine Press Ainsley Letterpress Wedding Invitation featuring detailed die cut edges

The focal point of our Ainsley design is the fun die-cut shape of each card, which makes this suite unique from the others your guests may be getting in the mail. Paired with a vintage pattern and personalized monogram surrounded by a decorative frame, this suite is fitting for any celebration. The mix of fonts on our original design feel traditional with a touch of whimsy!

A selection from our Coral album, this design allows you the flexibility to swap out any of the fonts or mix up the color palette to suit your event, all while benefiting from the smaller price tag the Coral album provides.
