In The Press – Stationery Trends Summer 2013

It’s been a great summer here at Dauphine Press! And yes, we’ve noticed that everyone has already started talking about “back to school” and end of summer plans. We’re wanting to stretch out the warm summer days so we are having fun recapping some of the great things that we have been part of this summer. One very special honor was being included in the Stationery Trends Summer 2013 issue in their Fresh Picks section. We loved seeing our Fairfield save the date and invitation suite featured in our favorite trade magazine.

The romantic lattice pattern in our mist foil truly makes this suite shine. The luxe board duplexed stock creates a beautiful canvas for the foil printed pattern and calligraphic typeface and our gold edge painting is the perfect accessory.

If Fairfield is also your idea of a fresh pick, contact your local Dauphine Press exclusive retailer to start customizing your own wedding stationery.

Dauphine Press in The Wedding Co. Magazine

Thanks to one of our amazing exclusive retailers, William Ashley in Toronto, a fabulous variation of our Glen Ellen design was featured in The Wedding Co. Magazine!


The publication created a fun challenge for a handful of stationers, florists and bakers and the results are stunning! Each “team” was given a few items of inspiration and the results were combined on the pages of the latest issue. With Bohdan from William Ashley leading the way, {just as he will when you visit him to design your wedding invitations}, we created a modified version of our Glen Ellen design to suit the timeless black, white and silver wedding stationery wardrobe.

Loving the classic feel of the Glenn Ellen corner details, Bohdan asked us to incorporate them onto a large, square invitation card in a glimmering silver foil. Paired with traditional fonts in black letterpress and finished with one of our lace-like, patterned paper wraps, a silver paper belly band and luxe double-faced satin ribbon  the look was complete!

This is truly the best part of our job — seeing one of our invitations take on a new direction to become something personal and special for another paper fan! All you have to do to get started on creating your own custom wedding suite is to get in touch with a Dauphine Press exclusive retailer {like William Ashley!} in your area!

Dauphine Press in Martha Stewart Weddings!

There’s no bigger honor than to be published in the top wedding magazine and we think it goes without saying that we are beyond thrilled to have our new Presidio suite featured in the Summer issue of Martha Stewart Weddings!

It was an exhilarating experience for our design team to work with the editors of Martha Stewart Weddings to create this new suite. The process was similar to what any Dauphine Press bride or groom can expect when working with one of our exclusive retailers — sharing details of the wedding, pouring over design inspiration and our design elements to customize the perfect wedding suite. You can read {and see} more on the design inspiration in our Presidio Suite Spotlight post.

Do you love the classic fonts and smart border on the invitation card, but want to see them in your wedding color palette? We’re ready to get started designing your custom wedding stationery so visit your local exclusive retailer today and enjoy every step of our custom design process.

Rutherford on Snippet & Ink


We hope everyone had a wonderfully Happy Thanksgiving yesterday! To keep with the holiday spirit of this week, we wanted to share a recent Snippet & Ink inspiration board that featured our Rutherford suite. It’s so much fun to see how other creative minds interpret our work and the results here are absolutely beautiful! Feast your eyes!

Dauphine Press on the cover of Stationery Trends!

We were delighted to see letterpress + foil on the cover of the Fall 2011 issue of Stationery Trends magazine. Our Belvedere design was chosen by the editors for the cover and we couldn’t be more excited!

In addition, we were also included in the cover story by editor Sarah Schwartz “The Four B’s”. It’s quite an honor to be included in an article with the subheading “Speak to the newest crop of celebrants with the freshest designs”! Our team is just beaming with pride! Another beloved design, Carneros, was included in the images paired with the article, which can be found here on the Stationery Trends website.
