Savannah Photo Shoot

We have another gorgeous photo shoot for you today. This time we worked with Austin Warnock Photography and a group of amazing vendors they selected. You can see the original post on Style Me Pretty and many more of the stunning images on the Austin Warnock Photography blog.

Savannah Style Shoot

For this shoot, our contribution was a perfectly delicate suite incorporating a beautiful lace pattern in a blind hit, a timeless script and a soft color palette. Here are even more shots of the stationery:

This suite is the perfect fit for this southern wedding, but don’t forget that it can be customized for any event. Would you love to see it in a square shape? With stunning turquoise ribbon corners and backer card? Or maybe a botanical print in the corners in place of the lace? All of that is possible, just visit one our exclusive retailers to customize your own Dauphine Press suite.

Vintage Hollywood Shoot

Everyone loves a great inspiration style shoot — us included! It’s an even bigger treat to work with some of the most amazing wedding vendors out there and collaborate on creating visuals that will inspire brides and grooms with every large and small detail.

This Vintage Hollywood shoot is no exception. Recently featured on Style Me Pretty, these beautiful details are the result of a collaboration with MLKL PhotographyOlam Weddings and Kerry Quade.

Stylistically, this suite’s chic typography was inspired by high fashion with a nod to the mid-century design. The gold foil impressed into the soft cotton paper is what gives this suite the rich and luxurious feeling associated with vintage Hollywood. The delicate, foil-stamped border and text is reminiscent of gold jewelry and truly catches the light like a diamond ring. The palette is still bright and beautiful — the whimsical, Wisteria-colored, hand-painted edges and a custom envelope liner give it a little vintage ’60s, beach-side flair while remaining sophisticated.

Dauphine Press Letterpress Foil National Stationery Show Edge Paint

As we mentioned last week, our team always has a blast preparing for the National Stationery Show each year and creating a new booth design. The best part of it all is catching up with friends old and new. It is the one time of year that we get to visit with so many of our retailers at once. They mean so much to us so it is a very special time! {To see a complete listing of our exclusive retailers, visit the Locate a Retailer section of our website.}

Beyond our retailers, we also love to catch up with our friends in the industry who share the best of stationery with you every day. Below are more details, in their words, on our new offering we previewed at NSS 2012 and are launching on our website and with our retailers in mid-July.

We always love running into Nole of Oh So Beautiful Paper and were delighted to be part of her extensive NSS recap. Also, did you see her article on NSS booth design? It really resonated with us!

It is always delightful to run into long-time friend of Dauphine Press, Alyson Kuhn of Felt & Wire. See her NSS recap as well as a unique view of Dauphine Press and our design team through Alyson’s latest interview with owner Glenn Schuster and art director Katrina McHugh.

We love this unique view from retailer Paper and Home in Las Vegas’ perspective on the show.

Perfectly put paper goodness from Emily at Southern Weddings. Don’t miss her recent Teal Party inspiration board with an appearance by one of our favorite destination wedding suites, Pacifica.

We will be back soon with details on each new design and even more photos!

Dauphine Press at NSS 2012, Part One

We had an amazing time at (and preparing for) the National Stationery Show last month. We are thrilled to share some photos of our booth with you today!

Our booth was designed in tandem with You + ME, who were amazing to work with. We had so much fun with this creative process – it was almost like planning a wedding – complete with invitations, decorations, “dessert” and party favors!

Here is a photo tour of our booth! All photography by Brooke Fits of Brookelyn Photography.


This year we created a welcoming lounge area right in the center of our booth where our guests could relax, enjoy a bite of chocolate and get a preview of our newest designs!

One our favorite parts of the entire project was the paper cake table created with You + ME! The cakes were made from our new patterns, papers and foils and were delicious (to behold). This table also featured four of our new suites (all of which you will be seeing much more of soon!).

Dauphine Press Letterpress Invitations - National Stationery Show Booth
We’ve been loving everything foil since we added it to our line last year and were thrilled to invite retailers to SHINE! with Dauphine Press in 2012.

Our amazing retailers are truly the backbone of our business so we took the opportunity to show off THEIR beautiful projects. These are just a few of the many real weddings we featured in our booth.

And finally, a few of our favorite details: Our take-away for our exclusive retailers was a gold logo bag | LOVED the florals in mercury glass vases (more SHINE!) provided by You + ME | We received the most amazing response to our satin ribbon display | We had such a fun time showing off our hand painted edges – a technique we just debuted last year and recently expanded to 56 colors!

Stay tuned for more details on our new offering debuting on our site in mid-July! We can’t wait to share it with you!

National Stationery Show – You’re Invited!

Our team has been busy over the past few days (weeks!) putting finishing touches on our National Stationery Show preparations. We are patiently waiting for the doors to open, but we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share a sneak preview with you. Our release this year is all about color, detail and shine!

If you will be attending the show we would love to see you in our booth (#2458) and would be thrilled to show you the new updates in person.

We will be sharing more from the show this week and even more just after the show.
