Client Customization – Art Deco Wedding Invitation

This stunning Art Deco design is one of our most asked about designs and we are thrilled to be sharing a gorgeous customization with you! The opulent and dramatic black and gold color palette really shows off the traditional Art Deco frame and timeless fonts. This couple stayed pretty true to the original design printing gold foil on a black card, but then dressed it up with some great embellishments.


Adding a black pocket folder, to frame the main invitation and enclose their entire suite in one plentiful package, was their first customization. From there, they added ancillary cards that featured the same motifs, but used them in different ways {like a single corner instead of all four} and also swapped the color palette by printing black letterpress ink on gold paper. With everything tucked into a gold pocket folder and mailed in a matching gold envelope, these wedding guests were bound to be wooed!

We would love to help you embellish your favorite design. Embellishments are like jewelry – it’s such a simple way to dress things up. Contact us or your local Dauphine Press exclusive retailer to see all of your embellishment options and create your custom invitation for your wedding day!

Client Customization – Floral Letterpress Save the Date Card

Decorative floral patterns and motifs are always a traditional choice for wedding stationery. Today’s Client Customization takes detailed peony and hydrangea motifs {two quintessential wedding flowers!} and pairs them with other classic touches in a unique format to create a custom save the date.


The letterpress printed floral motifs framing each panel of this trifold save the date card in a soft neutral fall into the background behind the classic black letterpress text. A combination of a script font and an all caps serif complete the look highlighting essential wedding guest details – travel directions, accommodation suggestions and the vital wedding weekend timeline.

This combination of design elements would complement any wedding decor. With small changes such as the color of the florals, the motifs chosen or the size and format of the card, you could easily create your own custom design to suit your unique event. With our Custom Wedding Portfolio II and the assistance of one of our exclusive retailers, you can create a one-of-a-kind wedding stationery suite for you and your event!

Client Customization – Updated Classic Letterpress Wedding Invitation

We have a special place in our hearts for a tasteful update on a true classic. Today’s client customization was created from scratch for this couple. Starting with their favorite double-thick 236# cotton letterpress stock then printing a classic layout with a monogram at the top, followed by a mix of a serif and a traditional script typeface in bold black ink. There’s nothing like the look of deep black letterpress on a fresh white stock – this combination really lets that deep letterpress impression shine!


Two final touches that we absolutely adore are the subtle shell painted edges and the black twine binding all of the cards in this suite together to create a true gift for guests when they open their mail.

What is your version of an update on a true classic? Or, would you rather skip the traditional elements altogether and go with something trendy? No matter your style, our Custom Wedding Portfolio II gives you all the tools you need to create the wedding invitation of your dreams – whether you decide to create it from scratch, using the wedding album as inspiration or team up with one of our exclusive retailers to get their expert advice!

Client Customization – Magical Wedding Rehearsal Invitation

We love the concept and overall feel the combination of design elements evokes on this invitation. What better way to have guests anticipating a “magical night under the stars” than with gold foil stamped stars, a blind letterpress impression of a tropical palm tree, gold edge painting and a fanciful script!

Client Customization – Sweet Letterpress First Birthday Invitation

We have a sweet customization for you today! We love to see our wedding invitation designs transformed into invitations for all kinds of events. With just a few easy changes, our Camille wedding suite was transformed into a delightfully elegant first birthday invitation.


Shifting the color palette to a range of peaches and oranges with traditional black wording is the first step in transforming this design. Then, swapping out the patterns for graphic florals result in a depth of pattern and color and adds interest. To add a touch of surprise, a second graphic floral pattern in a deeper orange was added to the back of the invitation. Finishing touches include the painted edges, matching envelope liner and striking cartouche on the return address.

We share all of these great designs to show you how easy it will be to customize your very own invitations. Plus, we have a wonderful group of retailers to help you create the perfect stationery for your event!
