Client Customization – Custom Pastel Save The Date

This sweet design is another one that we couldn’t wait to share. We love the unexpected color palette of our pale green honeydew foil on the shimmering aquamarine card stock. The aquamarine card stock has been duplexed to give it extra weight and presence.  What a decadent choice for this intricate design. Foil was the perfect choice for the layers of framing with the glimmering tiny details that frame this save the date card.

Client Customization – Modern Monogram

What better way to kick off your new union than with a New Years Eve wedding!? We love that this couple selected this special date and the details they chose to adorn their wedding invitation. We all know that the invitation sets the tone for your guests and gives them a taste of what to expect on your wedding day.

This couple chose a very playful designs for their save the date card with effervescent bubbles framing the wedding day details. When it came to the wedding invitation, they used the bubbles sparingly on the accessory cards and left the main invitation to make a classic statement. An oversized monogram in platinum foil tops the horizontal oriented card. Finishing touches include a platinum gilded edge on the double-thick stock and a platinum envelope liner.


This suite is such a wonderful way of keeping it simple. The monotone color palette and modern touches make an elegant and refined statement.

Client Customization – Foil Floral Wedding Invitation

With the arrival of the new year, we have a wonderful bundle of new Client Customizations for you. We love sharing the designs of our real clients because they often tell a unique story of the couple that created the design. It’s also the best source of inspiration – seeing what other brides and grooms are designing for their wedding invitations.

This square shape is perfect for a large decorative floral spray and traditional wording in a classic layout. Silver letterpress ink is used on for the wording, which is a combination of an all caps font paired with a graceful script for key details. The use of just one color for all of the wording keeps this look classic.

Our favorite element on this invitation is the orchid spray graphic printed in pearl foil. Paired with the brilliant white card, this design is the perfect example of restraint and glamour – perfect for a Palm Beach wedding! The thoughtful finishing touches include platinum painted edges and a platinum envelope liner.

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.


We would love to help you design your own pretty package for your wedding invitations. Contact us or get in touch with your local Dauphine Press exclusive retailer to gather inspiration and ideas from our Custom Wedding Portfolio.


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!


Are you in love with metallic foil as much as we are? Are you wanting to layer your favorite metals on special stationery? A New Years greeting or wedding invitation?! Contact us or one of our exclusive retailers to get a consultation on the best way to go about layering your favorite design details!

And, a very Merry Christmas to everyone celebrating this week! From all of us at Dauphine Press, we wish you the merriest of holidays with your family and friends!
