Dauphine Press Client Customization - Gold Foil Chevron Pattern Save the Date card, custom design

This creation was designed by our beloved retailer INK in San Diego, California using their client’s favorite elements from our Custom Wedding Portfolio II. If you are dreaming up a unique design you can be sure to find the elements in our design library so that we can build it from scratch! You don’t have to start with one of our existing designs when designing your own wedding stationery if you don’t want to. And, the best news is, it doesn’t cost extra to create your own design – our price is the same whether you take inspiration from one of our existing designs or build something yourself using our custom design elements!

Client Customization – Carneros Letterpress Holiday Card

It is so rewarding when something simple has a big impact, isn’t it?! Our exclusive retailer Paper Plane Paperie guided their client through a few simple edits that resulted in a beautiful new piece, one with lots of impact. It also happens to be perfect for the holidays!

Our Carneros letterpress wedding invitation is a favorite for its traditional touches. Carneros was the inspiration for Emily at Paper Plane Paperie and for her client looking to create a custom holiday party invitation. What a great candidate for a holiday greeting! With their custom design, they chose to shift the wreath detail from the original Carneros invitation to stand front and center on a slim card. With this small change, and by replacing the monogram from the original with the “happy holidays” greeting, this design was completely transformed!

Client Customization – Vintage Rose

It’s that time of year! We are starting to see lots of orders for save the date cards. We know how engaged couples feel when the holidays are quickly approaching and you’re anticipating the New Year just around the corner … more than likely, that New Year represents your year! We know what it’s like, while everyone else is thinking about pumpkin spice lattes and holiday ski trips, you’re thinking about next spring, preparing for a very special day!

Well, we’re right here with you and today we are sharing a beautiful save the date card featuring 3-color letterpress. Two of those ink colors are dedicated to our vintage rose motif. The bold size of the rose detail makes a beautiful statement in the soft petal pink and sage green. Classic fonts in black letterpress ink lend an overall elegant feel to this wedding stationery wardrobe.

There’s a perfectly subtle tiny touch on these cards we’re featuring today too. Did you catch it? With just a simple shift of the third ink color on the note cards, from traditional black to an earthy olive, the overall look of that one piece is slightly more casual. It’s in details like these that our exclusive retailers, like Judy Paulen Designs at Bloomingdale’s who sent us this customization, help couples perfect when creating a design using our Custom Wedding Portfolio. Visit your local Dauphine Press exclusive retailer to get started on the stationery for your year, today!

Client Customization – Joie de Vivre Holiday Card

You often hear designers say that the hardest pieces to create are the ones you use for yourself. The key is finding the right inspiration! You also hear us talk a lot about our exclusive retailers – all of the talented stationers around the globe that are an extension of us and help couples create their wedding stationery every day – and how much we love working with them and appreciate their expertise. Seems simple, but we used them as our inspiration. Knowing that, like us, they love what they do every day, have a passion for creating the best printed pieces for very special events and as a result get to live what they love!

Feeling that this really is the key to a happy life – live what you love – we created our Joie de Vivre holiday card.  Using this French phrase and making it beautiful felt like the perfect sentiment to extend to all of our retailers for the New Year. We turned to our beloved Custom Wedding Portfolio II for additional inspiration and customized a design in the same way we encourage every Dauphine Press bride and groom to do. First, we selected the layering details from our Rutherford wedding invitation where the vibrant font is printed over a subtle all-over floral pattern. Then, we paired it with the petite die-cut card from our Calistoga suite and a brand new design was born.

Client Customization – Charming Elegant Date

The big date! Every couple falls in love with their wedding date and our Elegant Date design celebrates exactly that. Our exclusive retailer, Kyle Fine Stationery in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, helped their client design a new take on our Elegant Date design. We love seeing couples take advantage of our complimentary custom design process that is built into our Custom Wedding Portfolio program – especially when it results in a gorgeous new design like this one!

This couple chose to keep the format of the original design that allows the wedding date to stretch across the card as the focal point. Changing the font used for the date, to a script with a thinner line, gives the card an overall lighter feel. To add depth, an all-over cross-hatch pattern, originally found on our Cloverdale suite, was layered beneath the copy in a beautiful robin’s egg letterpress ink. The final personal touch is the charming dragonfly motif perfectly placed under the arched copy.
