Client Customization – Vintage Nantucket Save The Date

One of our favorite retailers, Parchment Fine Papers in Nantucket, is always bringing us the most elegant wedding invitations. This classic design is one that we’re excited to share with you. We love location-specific designs and as we’ve talked about before, if you are getting married in a location as beautiful as Nantucket, why not let that guide your invitation design?

Dauphine Press Client Customization

Our journal format allows you to share multiple pages of wedding details {schedule of events, timelines, travel information} and also make a statement with the design of the front cover. With a journal design, we recommend that you keep the details simple on the cover and use the space to express yourself visually.

With this save the date design, a vintage map of Nantucket is printed in a subtle neutral with the wedding date and names of the couple taking center stage. This leaves room for extra design elements – a nautical feeling striped border and flag announcing the wedding date.

Client Customization – Letterpress Kentucky Derby Invitation

It is such a treat to work with clients on their annual events. One of our exclusive retailers, Rebecca at Taylor Street Paper, has come to us for invitations to her personal events many times. For everything from holiday cards to Kentucky Derby festivities.

Today we’re sharing her chosen design selected this year for the 141st Kentucky Derby. With a stand-out color palette, this is one of our favorites so far. The layered pattern and prominent all-caps typefaces combine to make this an event guests will be anxiously awaiting!


Rebecca has a great eye for detail and really knows how to make the most of design for letterpress printing. She is much like all of our exclusive retailers, armed with a ton of experience and ready to help you find the perfect combination of elements for your letterpress stationery. Call us or contact your local Dauphine Press exclusive retailer to take advantage of that expertise that we’re all willing to share.

Client Customization – Letterpress Magnolia Invitation

Sometimes it’s the smallest touches that have the biggest impact. We love the large magnolia floral in opposing corners in our barely-there varnish letterpress ink on this wedding invitation. But, it’s the color selected for the invitation wording that made us take a second glance. With an overall botanical theme, the deep garden green is a stellar choice. It is that “traditional with a twist” detail that we’re often talking about.


Whether you want to share your wedding details in a subtle way or if you want to shout them from the rooftops, we can help you find your perfect balance. Call us or visit one of our exclusive retailers to get the guidance you need to create a perfect wedding invitation suite for your wedding day.

Client Customization – Neutral + Modern Letterpress Wedding Invitation

We love the way the neutral color palette of this customized version of our Auburn wedding invitation suite highlights our favorite details of this design. The graphic elements — a bold font used for the couples names, the large ampersand, a modern take on the wedding date, a simple single-line frame — really stand out and highlight the typography and the charming couple and their upcoming union.


The entire suite is wrapped up perfectly in a shimmering pocket fold. The interior pocket holds all of the important details your guests will need to plan their weekend and help you celebrate this special day!

Client Customization – Foil Stamped Timeline Save the Date

Most of us mark our lives with milestone moments and your wedding day is usually a pretty big point on your life and relationship timeline. Today’s Client Customization illustrates key moments on this couple’s timeline. Using vintage motifs printed in gold foil, this custom timeline tells a story and ultimately invites close friends and family to quite a celebration – 50 years of marriage! And yes, the gold foil was a must for this Golden Anniversary save the date!


We love to think of visual ways to tell a story. A timeline like this, or a special floral or pattern are all things we can incorporate into your wedding stationery design. This save the date was designed with the visual timeline save the date, telling the story of this sweet couple. And, the invitation, featuring a traditional feel, features a balance of script and all-caps serif font. The finishing detail is the gold edge painting to highlight the luxuriously thick card.

We can’t wait to hear the details that define your story. Contact us or visit one of our exclusive retailers to start the design of your wedding stationery.
