Suite Spotlight – Oakville Foil + Letterpress Wedding Invitation

We have another Suite Spotlight and gorgeous board for you today! It is so exciting to share the overall vision our design team had when creating each of our suites. We hope you enjoy seeing these as much as we enjoy sharing them.

As we note in our gallery, Oakville is perfectly suited for an elegant event with a polished touch. The delicate reflective silver foil script shines against the rich teal letterpress copy on our texture cotton papers. The combination of bridal whites, striking teal and silver sparkle set the stage for a your extraordinary event from the first moment the envelope is opened. Take a peek:

Suite Spotlight – Kensington Foil + Letterpress Wedding Invitation

Our Kensington suite is a star around here, not just because of the delicate foil stamped border in reflective gold foil, but it is the perfect marriage of letterpress and foil on one piece. This beautiful balance of letterpress and foil on a single card creates a gorgeous impression from a distance, but also begs you to hold it in your hand and run your fingers over the deep letterpress and shift the card to catch the light on the foil.

Inspired by the styles of the 30s and 40s, this suite sets the tone for an affair that is stylish and classic with its fonts and motifs in a mix of bright fuchsia letterpress ink next to the reflective gold foil. Each piece incorporates a different twist on the delicate foil stamped border and is also edged in our fuchsia edge painting, which perfectly frames and finishes each card.

And the inspiration board … I have no words beyond “it takes my breath away!” Gorgeous! Our design team really outdid themselves with this one!

Suite Spotlight – Solage Letterpress Save the Date Card

It’s time for another “Suite Spotlight” where we look at one of our current designs and share with you the details that went into creating the suite, all the way back to the initial inspiration — and finish off with gorgeous beauty shot of the final piece.

As we note on our website, Solage is no ordinary save the date card! With it’s vintage stying and rich tactile spin on the more modern trend of photo cards, this save the date really makes an impression. The richness of the cotton papers gives contrast to the delicate photograph while the antique engraving design, printed in Wisteria and Charcoal letterpress provides a picture perfect frame.

Suite Spotlight – Carneros Letterpress Wedding Invitation

Today we want to put the spotlight on one of our most popular designs – Carneros. Carneros has seen many customizations from real brides and grooms, but its timeless design is always present, no matter how our couples customize it.

Two of the main highlights on this design are the painted edges in Sunshine and the Dauphine Press exclusive envelope liner in a coordinating Sunshine chevron pattern. Swapping out these two elements means that the core of the design — the traditional letterpress monogram in our Varnish ink and modern typefaces — is still strong and present, but the suite as a whole still has a big impact and will suit your unique event.

With our recent updates to our Design Library and custom elements, the possibilities really are endless for this piece. Our expanded edge painting palette means you now have 58 colors to choose from, not to mention the same number of options for liner colors in any of our patterns!

You may recall that Carneros was also the subject of our style shoot from earlier this year {here is the behind the scenes look at the shoot}. Below are even more amazing shots of this suite as well as our design team’s inspiration for the original design.
