Client Customization – Autumnal Ainsley Update

We talk about the weather and seasons a lot around here, don’t we?! Those two elements are important for weddings and for the couples planning them, so they’re important to us too! We know that fall is a favorite of many and we love seeing all of the blog posts and Instagram updates of people celebrating this new season. We especially love the thought of all of the couples out there who have planned weddings this fall and how this shift will elevate their excitement over their pending nuptials. Soon, all of our fall couples will be able to celebrate the hard work they have put into planning all the fine details of their wedding day, honoring the most special union between two people!

We thought we would jump right in, join in the fun, and share a charming update to our Ainsley suite that is the perfect customization for a fall wedding. For any of you enjoying the new season, or if you’re planning a fall wedding, we know you will love how our exclusive retailer, Papel New York in Brooklyn, customized this letterpress wedding invitation suite for their bride and groom.

A few weeks ago we shared the original Ainsley design with you and how the color palette was perfect for that late summer/early fall wedding. Inspired by the Ainsley design in our Coral Weddings album, Raegan at Papel New York did what she does best. With just a few design changes, she completely transformed this design. With a simple ink color change, script font selection and motif choice, this version is now completely ready for fall! The fun die-cut shape is still the focal point of this suite and will likely be the first thing your guests notice, but this version includes a tone-on-tone rust and espresso color palette that brings an added layer of elegance to the overall design. Paired with the decorative script font for the bride and groom’s names and swapping out the decorative monogram for the charming oak tree motif, this letterpress wedding invitation suite is a gorgeous twist on traditional.

Client Customization – A Traditional Take on Stinson

Our Stinson letterpress and foil wedding invitation suite is one of our most talked about designs. Printed on our Elegant duplexed stock in a shimmering pyrite color, we have seen many couples use this very contemporary design as inspiration. Working with their local retailer, Sweet Paper in La Jolla, California, this couple created a brand new look with just a few simple changes. With our Custom Wedding Portfolio, these changes don’t add any cost to the order — in fact, these changes actually make this version an even more budget-friendly choice! Let’s take a look …

The first customization selected was to switch from the metallic paper stock to our cotton letterpress stock. This instantly gives the suite a softer and more traditional feel. Mixing a classic, neutral color palette of black and buttercream letterpress inks with a fun script font, a completely different look is achieved. We especially love how the black ink balances with the white cotton paper and places the bride and groom’s names center stage on the invitation while highlighting the floral motif and simple border details.

As mentioned above, one of the best parts of making changes like these is that there is no additional cost to do so! The custom process built into every design ordered from our Custom Wedding Portfolio also allows flexibility to fit into any budget! So, visit one of our exclusive retailers, like Sweet Paper, to start the design of your custom wedding suite today and take advantage of the free custom design we offer with every order. You can change the color palettetypefacepatterns and motifs on any suite and there is no additional cost!

Client Customization – Sweet Patterned First Birthday Invitation

This sweet first birthday party invitation was for one lucky little girl!  Sent our way by the amazing team at Inscriptions on the Boulvevard in Forth Worth, Texas, this precious piece was originally inspired by our Yountville birthday card design. The original design features a monogram as the focal point and a fine allover pattern accent. Knowing their inspiration, and after hearing the perfect quote they wanted to include, our design team suggested a single-sided version that incorporated the pattern of our Meadowood suite and a delicate border. After modifying the Meadowood pattern from a 2-color design to a 1-color design and letterpress printing it in our shell ink behind a fun mix of playful typefaces in espresso, a custom design was born!

Client Customization – Yountville Bat Mitzvah Invitation

When we set out to build our Custom Wedding Portfolio, we created it in a way that allowed for all of the designs to be customized to suit any type of event – holiday, baby announcements, showers, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs and even personal stationery. Using our gallery of designs as the inspiration and our design library full of custom elements, each design detail can be personalized to create any stationery from the ground up. With this in mind, we have another fantastic non-wedding Client Customization to share with you today.

A fun take on our Yountville suite, today’s design came to us from our exclusive retailer RSVP in Roslyn, New York. Their client was inspired by the large monogram featured on our Yountville invitation, but wanted to personalize it a step further. They chose our large square, Royal size card and our design team adjusted the design to make the most of the space, while still allowing it to make the same bold statement. Keeping with the allover modern feel of this suite, the client chose a subtle color palette. The sweet, wisteria touches perfectly grace the monogram, the painted edges on the invitation card and the delicate pattern of our Dauphine Press exclusive Solage envelope liner.

Client Customization – A Peachy Take on Marinwood

I can’t tell you how often I hear people in our industry talk about how hard it is to design their own stationery! When you are exposed to such gorgeous design and printing every single day, I am the first to admit that it can be a painfully slow process when it comes time to narrow down all of the amazing choices into a single card for yourself. However, this time around, when it came time to design {another!} baby announcement, it was much less daunting!

With the help of Dauphine Press designers Matt and Heather and my client services sidekick Tracy, I had the perfect team to help me pull this design together. Focusing on every detail from the color palette to the perfectly petite pattern behind the photograph and the ideal art for the first panel to the most fabulous fonts for my baby girl’s name, it came together in no time. I absolutely love the end result and I’m especially pleased with the way it complements big sister’s announcement that we created two years ago.

Right from the start, I knew that I wanted to go with the same trifold format as Chelsea’s announcement {baby number one}, since that worked so well the first time around. This format has proven itself to be a great fit for everything from a big announcement to a wedding details card packed with travel information. And, let’s not forget what a precious keepsake it makes with it’s small size and luxe print techniques.

Our Marinwood design has seen many variations since it was released two years ago – check out a few of our favorites here and here. Are you looking for the perfect announcement or save the date? Visit one of our exclusive retailers and share with them all the ways you would customize your very own trifold.
