Frosty Holiday Card

We’re excited to spread a little holiday cheer today! We get into the holidays a little early around here since we often start working with clients in September on their holiday card designs. We’re at the stage though where the rest of the world is also feeling the holiday spirit and snowfall, warm sweaters, sparkly decor and sweet homemade treats are on everyone’s mind.

Our Frosty design is a lighthearted look at the holidays. The two color letterpress design mixes a vintage winter motif, perfectly placed snowflakes and a peppermint candy cane stripe on the card and on the coordinating envelope liner.

Dauphine Press Holiday Card Inspiration

In our Northern California office we don’t have snowy white winters, but our design team was inspired by “snow and gold” when creating our 2011-2012 holiday card. Starting with the “snow and gold” inspiration, we knew that above all, we wanted to incorporate brilliant gold foil and use our bright white letterpress stock.

Staying true to our Dauphine Press aesthetic we wanted the card to have a vintage feel, which was achieved by creating a border inspired by gold details in art deco architecture and jewelry. The subtle texture of the snow-like letterpress blind hit in the fluffy cotton paper is perfectly paired with the warm gold foil border and sentiment. The “warm wishes” greeting was  by the amazing calligrapher Georgia Deaver in a script inspired by vintage packaging, resulting in a slightly traditional feel perfect for the holidays (or any wedding!). The calligraphy and gold foil are carried onto the light grey envelope completing the perfect clean and fresh wintery palette.

Giving Thanks

Being in the wedding and social stationery industry means we get to witness a lot of joy and gratitude – and help spread that joy and gratitude every day of the year. This is the time of year that we all stop and reflect on those wonderful things. At Dauphine Press we are so grateful for all of the amazing retailers, designers and couples we have the opportunity to work with each day.

One regional publication, 805 Living, published a great issue this month discussing many things to be grateful for – big and small. We are especially thrilled to see a couple of our letterpress thank you notes included in their “Giving Thanks” feature. Again, one of the small ways we are lucky to be a participant in spreading joy!

We hope you enjoy this great read, time with family and friends and counting all of the things you are grateful for this weekend. From all of us at Dauphine Press, we wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving!
