Client Customization – Lovely Lavender Letterpress Invitation

We love the way the subtle lavender touches add dimension to this Vreeland wedding suite customization. This invitation utilizes, what we call in letterpress printing, a “fill.” Looking at the etched floral motif, you can see that there is a solid layer of lavender ink printed beneath it, which gives it a hint of color and differentiates it from the blind printed lattice in the background.

Starting with that lovely touch on the main invitation card, this suite includes many other pretty layers that will be sure to have guests excited for the big day. The neutral color palette, elegant shimmery pocket folder, the different uses of the signature etched floral motif and the luxe belly band wrap up the entire invitation into one pretty package.

Client Customization – Metallic Foil Holiday Card

An all-metallic color palette is such a great choice for the holidays. We especially love how this client customization mixes three different metallics – copper, silver and platinum.

With the help of our exclusive retailer The Stovall Collection, this family started with a thick brilliant white card stock and layered in a festive seasonal pattern of pine boughs in our copper foil. They repeated the color and pattern on the envelope liner, which reflects the abundance of natural beauty during the winter season. They then chose satin silver foil for the wording, making their holiday greeting stand out against the background pattern. With a place for their holiday photo and a platinum colored envelope, this card is ready for the mailboxes of friends and family!

An elegant and {so perfect for the holidays!} damask pattern is printed is in our subtle parchment ink, creating the first layer of this letterpress card. The choice of a subtle ink for the all-over pattern ensures that it will create a beautiful backdrop for the greeting and fine details.

Client Customization – Elegant Letterpress + Foil Holiday Card

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year!” This letterpress and foil holiday is the epitome of this iconic line. Our retailer, The Stovall Collection, worked with this family to create a unique holiday card that features elegant letterpress, an overall festive feel and a space for their annual family photo.

CC-FLINN-HOLIDAY

This custom holiday card features an all-over pattern of leaping reindeer (featuring Rudolf!) in our subtle varnish ink, like footsteps in the snow, layered under the holiday greeting printed in crimson red foil. The whimsical font chosen for the quote and the family name gives the card a festive feel. All will be complete when the family adds their adorable family photograph within the simple foil frame.

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.
