Real Dauphine Press Wedding – Rachel & Mike’s Napa Valley Destination Wedding

Rachel and Mike worked with our exclusive retailer The Stationery Station and selected our Volusia letterpress wedding invitation suite for their wedding day. The unexpected horizontal card shape printed with a mix of a boldface type along with touches of a classic script font, this design effortlessly exudes casual elegance – perfect for a destination wedding in Napa Valley. The couple chose to add a personal touch with a wine glass motif on each piece and a bright color palette of coral and grey.

Imagine the surprise and delight of their guests when their color palette and destination theme all came together on their wedding day! With the vibrant summery colors sprinkled throughout and the wine country details, this was surely a day to remember!

Get The Look – Floral Beauty

Our entire team can get pretty excited about a unique color palette! Today’s Get the Look post is all about bold color and romance – a perfect combination for a wedding invitation! We’re taken by the shades of purple and lavender paired with deep fuchsia pink in this fashion image. The balance of softness and bold color was something we would love to duplicate on paper.

To begin, our design team envisioned the wedding invitation wording printed in our cool metal grey letterpress ink on a thick luxe board card in a shimmery white micah. With a bright fuchsia painted edge to rival the lipstick shade on the model and bold foil stamping in our majestic purple to match the bright florals, this combination of elements really highlights this romantic color palette.

If you’ve chosen a unique color palette for your wedding and wedding stationery, visit one of our retailers to translate your palette into paper! We have a large selection of letterpress ink colors, foil, paper and envelope liners for  you to highlight the colors that will be helping you define your wedding day!

Pairing the color palette and embellishments above with any of our motifs or fonts allows us to create a stationery suite that is unique to you!

A.M. Inspiration {chinoiserie and metallics}

4.24-AM-INSPIRATION

We all have our favorite creative times during the day, and for me, it’s early in the morning while most of the world – well, mostly my children – remain quiet. With our “A.M. Inspiration” series, I post images of what currently has me inspired, the exciting new ideas I am dreaming up on my quiet mornings and share my thoughts on how to translate each piece of inspiration into stationery design and wedding invitations.

It was in college, while studying art and design, that I fell in love with chinoiserie. The Chinese-inspired prints have an ethereal feel that heightened my appreciation for this pattern.

This contemporary image, with the brushed metallic silver background that combines so beautifully with the watercolor-like-feel of the intricate and fanciful botanical imagery, is quite an inspiration. The winding tree branches painted in an unexpected robin’s egg blue color adds to the overall whimsical quality of the print.

To translate these exquisite details into a stationery suite, I would simply suggest shimmering foil stamping paired with a soft letterpress color palette on a metallic neutral card stock. Some of our most popular designs were inspired by items and elements that aren’t traditionally associated with weddings. A chinoiserie-inspired wedding invitation is officially on my design to-do list!
