Dauphine Press Foil Notebooks Win HOW Magazine Award!

In keeping with the theme of the latest issue of HOW magazine we wanted to post a little “self-promotion” blog about our award-winning “self-promotion” foil notebooks.

Our design team created these foil notebooks to showcase our new foil stamping technique. The set of three notebooks — in gold, silver and copper — were designed as a set and belly-banded before being gifted to our favorite customers.

As we often say around here, “go team”!

Dauphine Press Peony design on Style Me Pretty

We were thrilled to see a letterpress wedding invitation suite we printed on the new Style Me Pretty Texas blog. This bride, also an interior designer, worked with our Houston retailer Katie & Co. to customize the Peony design from our Wedding Portfolio. We can’t get enough of all of the design elements the bride created herself. As Abby Blaire writes for SMP “She not only designed the bridesmaid dresses, boutonnieres and so much more but she also designed her own gown.”

We are wholeheartedly impressed.

Dauphine Press in The Wedding Style Guide

We were thrilled to see that our work was included in the autumn issue of the Austrailian magazine, The Wedding Style Guide. Ordered through through our retailer, Brenda Himmel Stationery in Santa Monica, the couple based their save the date, invitation and day of pieces on our Hayes design. We LOVE how they displayed their letterpress escort cards on the rows of pears below and feel so honored to have played a part in such a beautiful wedding.

If you haven’t already seen this darling magazine, you really must take a peek at their website & blog. We got lost in the free Look Book that is available for viewing fullscreen on their homepage. Below are a few screenshots of our favorite spreads (including one with the lovely pears!).

Dauphine invitation on Say YES to the Dress

Candace Taylor from Remember This Always worked with Dauphine Press designer Heather Landry to create the letterpress pieces featured on TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress season debut for the wedding of Donna & David Calloway. We love seeing the elements of our Hayes Design take on a classic look in blind hit and black. Remember This Always took this beautiful invitation to the next level with Swarovski crystals and a custom silk box. Take a look!

Dauphine Press in Today’s Bride

We have been seeing some great coverage in our favorite magazines lately. This week we heard from Today’s Bride that one of our timeless designs was featured in their 2011 issue.

Our design team created an invitation suite for the bride and groom that has become a best seller over the years. Larisa and Carl were married in 2007 and asked us to create a suite with a “world traveler” feel. We created an invitation design using a vintage world map as the background, whimsical touches including a head-on airplane motif and traditional wording on an untraditional horizontal card.

To top it off, we created a passport menu for their reception, which inspired their cake design.
