Client Customization – Letterpress + Foil Wedding Program

Referrals are the biggest complement! We love that our exclusive retailer, Parchment Fine Papers in Nantucket, has asked us to help design wedding stationery for multiple members of this family. We love that we get to be a small part in the big events that highlight the lives of our clients. The best part, is that we also get to see a different side of each personality and event when a client takes advantage of our free custom design process. Our Custom Wedding Portfolio II is full of inspiration, but also allows you to personalize your stationery for your event, making it unique!

CC-LINDNER

This wedding program has an overall traditional and classic feel with the layout, format and fonts chosen, but this couple personalized the details by choosing our nautical twilight letterpress ink, a matching ribbon detail and to top it off, a reflective silver foil anchor on the cover to underscore the wedding location.

Are you inspired by a design you’ve seen on our website or blog but want to make it your own? That is what we’re here for! Contact us or one of our exclusive retailers and we can help you easily create your own custom design!

Client Customization – Letterpress Beach Wedding Invitation

This beach wedding invitation makes a bold statement with a large motif printed behind classic fonts. The graphics are large, but do not take over the entire suite since they are printed in our soft powder blue letterpress ink. Paired with our taupe letterpress ink for the type, we think this softer version of traditional black or silver really adds to the beachy vibe of this suite.

CC-MACKECHNIE

Sent to us by our exclusive retailer Lettres, this design is one that is easily customized. If you’re having a garden wedding or getting married under an oak tree, we can easily swap out the beach motifs for florals or a gorgeous oak and acorn. We would love to work with you, so contact us, to find your signature style.

Client Customization – Classic Romance

Our retailer, The Social Type, helped this bride and groom create a classically romantic wedding invitation suite with {in our opinion} the perfect amount of decorative embellishments.

The design on the main invitation incorporates a very traditional look with a Varnish letterpress printed floral motif in each corner framing the classic mix of script and sans serif fonts. The extra touch here is that those restrained florals on the front of the card meander onto the back of the extra-thick, duplexed card in an overall floral pattern. What a great way to make a design statement on a usually-unused  portion of an invitation card. Another unexpected detail is a tear-off response card with those flowing florals again stretching over both ends of the cards.

CC-OWEN

Extra-thick duplexed cardstock, subtle Varnish for your favorite decorative motif, creating an all-over pattern on the back of the card, a fun perforated response card … the perfect combination for creating a classically romantic wedding invitation suite. With this much attention to detail, the wedding day is sure to be one that guests will not soon forget.

Are you ready to create your unforgettable wedding invitation suite? We would love to help you create a custom design for your wedding day that incorporates the decorative details that you love most.

Client Customization – Letterpress Fashion Week Trifold Invitation

As some of you may have already seen, when we gave a sneak preview of this fun invitation on our Instagram account, we love that we were able to play a small part in this event! This fun letterpress trifold invitation incorporates some great design elements, all in one place!

CC-MEMPHIS-FASHION

Dauphine Press retailer Mrs. Post Stationery brought this project to us and we loved how they took our trifold format as a jumping off point and then incorporated elements from the event into the invitation design. What fun to work with such a stylish group. We knew it would have amazing results.

Memphis Fashion Week benefits the Emerging Memphis Designer Project and the Memphis Fashion Fund. The theme this year incorporated a natural color palette and patterns inspired by nature. The Copper and Ice Plant letterpress inks pair beautifully and help highlight the design elements. The wood pattern on the front cover mirrors their logo and the honeycomb elements are sprinkled throughout with a large hexagon shape framing the headline on the first panel and also used in a delicate manner on the last panel with a small scale honeycomb pattern. They used that last panel and placed a full-color fashion image over it so that the pattern framed the image. {Be sure to check out the @memphisfashionweek Instagram account for all of the non-stationery details including a must-see floral installation, also honeycomb inspired, in the VIP lounge created by @holidayflowersandevents!}.

Do you have a special event coming up for your work and need a fabulous invitation?! We would love to work with you, hear all of your ideas and create an amazing invitation design. Contact us or your local Dauphine Press retailer and tell us all about it!

Client Customization – Unique Wedding Invitation

Our Custom Wedding Portfolio is designed so that brides and grooms can select one of our existing invitations as-is, you can use an existing design as a jumping off point and personalize it for your event — or, you can use the individual design library elements to create our own unique design from the ground up. This last option is exactly what this couple, sent our way by exclusive retailer By Invitation Only in Oklahoma, chose for their wedding invitation. These truly custom designs are always exciting for us because it really shows the personality of the couple and is truly unique to them.

CC-WEIR

This one-of-a-kind design is printed on our Savoy Natural White, 236# letterpress stock in a combination of a Blind Hit floral, motifs in a mix of Celadon letterpress and Honeydew foil and finished with Satin Gold Foil type.

For emellishments, the couple added a soft finish to the card with elegant rounded corners on all pieces, oh-so-pretty Cameo colored envelopes and an Envelopments Raw Silk White Trellis envelope liner for a wow-factor when the envelope is opened.

This couple had their dream invitation realized by choosing their favorite elements. We’re here to help if you want to create your very own design!
