Suite Spotlight – Camille Letterpress Wedding Invitation

At Dauphine Press we’re fans of seeing a process from start to finish. Last week we mentioned how all of our designs are created from inspiration boards and how we love this tool for couples planning their wedding. We feel so lucky to be in the position of creating something physical and tangible based on an inspiration board that someone lovingly created to honor their union. This is what our entire custom design process is all about! Save the Date cards and Invitations are often the first physical element of your wedding! We all know that your wedding stationery is the first glimpse your guests get into the upcoming soiree, but it’s also the first piece of your vision to materialize. That’s a big deal! One that we don’t take lightly.

We created our custom design process to make sure that you can be involved in that process – from start to finish – and put your personal touches on every element along the way. We love working with our clients, hearing your vision, collecting ideas from an inspiration board and watching a unique design develop. We love hearing from our brides and grooms about that moment when you first opened your package from us, holding your wedding invitation in your hands for the first time – one that you created from start to finish and how the excitement about the big day starts to reveal itself from that point!

Today’s spotlight is on Camille, a square letterpress wedding invitation suite. Camille is another one of our versatile designs that we hope will inspire you to create your own wedding invitation. With its decorative frame and patterned background, this letterpress invitation can take on many looks just by simply choosing different patterns and colors. Take a peek at the path we took for this original design:

Suite Spotlight – Ivy Letterpress Wedding Invitation

January is such an exciting time of year for us! It’s the time of year when when wedding planning really starts to ramp up! That means that we have couples {just like you!} and our retailers sharing endless numbers of new “wedding visions” with us – the vision that each unique couple is dreaming up for their own wedding day.

We’re a visual group and love how inspiration boards can really help couples develop the overall look and feel for their big day. Inspiration boards have to be the number one wedding planning tool these days! Our designers also use inspiration boards to create new designs. For every one of our designs, we had a particular wedding vision in mind when the design was created. This is what our Suite Spotlight posts are all about! We share with you the inspiration board behind one of our favorite custom wedding invitations. We think it’s exciting to see the full process so we want to share! Plus, if you’re a bride or groom just getting started on your inspiration boards and planning, maybe this peek into our process will help you start pulling your vision together.

Typically, the viewers of our inspiration boards initially react to the color palette featured. When it comes to our Ivy invitation suite, we feel that with the inclusion of the hydrangea blue, it shows a modern take on a traditional wedding color palette. With olive green chosen as the neutral and used for the wedding invitation wording, the pale blue backer card adds pop of color. You wouldn’t normally think of pale blue acting as a pop of color, but our team pulled it off in a stunning way!

Take a peek at the inspiration behind our Ivy letterpress wedding invitation:

Our Ivy letterpress wedding invitation is a true classic! It is a design that is very versatile and gives an overall romantic vibe as well as touches of whimsy with the spiraling tendrils that fall behind the wording. Your choice of font used on this invitation can take this design from traditional to casual – one perfect for anything from an outdoor event to classic church nuptials. The fine details in the ivy motif used on the invitation and note card, along with the vintage engraving design used on the response card, really show off the deep impression of the letterpress printing!

So, what do you think? Are you ready to start pulling together your own wedding color palette and inspiration board? We can’t wait to hear from you and “see” what makes your wedding design uniquely you!

Suite Spotlight – Bloom Letterpress Wedding Invitation

All of us at Dauphine Press are buzzing about the Thanksgiving holiday this week. With plans to travel to spend time with family, hosting large groups in our homes and celebrating the warmth of the season – we are all really looking forward to diving into this holiday and enjoying every second of it. We wanted to be sure to share some of that warmth with you this week with our Suite Spotlight on our Bloom invitation. What better way than to go back to a classic design in a time-honored color palette!

Our Bloom design has an overall traditional feel with a letterpress printed script font in our warm cocoa brown ink. The oversized, offset flourish in bold persimmon gives this design the perfect pop of color and interest – one that will certainly have guests take notice and look forward to an event filled with beauty and personal touches. The presentation of our original Bloom design is where those personal touches start. The cocoa pocket folder and layers of magnolia and poppy colored ribbons allow guests to unwrap this gorgeous package as their anticipation builds.
