Spring Wishes from Dauphine Press

With sunnier days and warmer weather upon us, we are happily celebrating the Spring season here at Dauphine Press. This letterpress printed invitation exhibits the sweetest spring motifs, patterns and colors! We worked with our exclusive retailer For Heaven’s Sake in Beaumont, TX to design this adorable party invitation. The owner, Gina, wanted to create this gem for her very own annual gathering of family and friends {you can view the invite we printed for this event last year on our Instagram account!}.

Gina knew exactly what she wanted for the layout, fonts and color palette and asked our design team to suggest our favorite patterns for the decorative eggs. We offered a grouping from our collection of custom patterns that represented a balance of graphic and floral-inspired motifs. Above all, we chose patterns that beautifully displayed the letterpress printing. The beauty of a letterpress printed pattern on one of our cotton papers is that it can really show off the art and impression of letterpress printing.

We hope you are enjoying the Spring season with your family and friends!
