Client Customization – Letterpress + Foil Starburst Wedding Invitation

Reminiscent of our Monterey suite, this customization pairs letterpress printing and foil stamping absolutely beautifully on one single wedding invitation! The shimmering starburst design is printed on our thick, 236# letterpress Savoy stock in brilliant white with petal pink and powder blue letterpress ink along with reflective gold foil. Such a stunning balance of color and shine!

The invitation included a frame detail around the edge of the card, surrounding traditional invitation wording in the gold foil. The stand-out monogram {sent to us by exclusive retailer URBANcoast} is framed by the intricate starburst. Looking closely, you will see that traditional etiquette was at play here – the couple utilized a two letter duogram on their invitation and reserved their married monogram {using their first initials and new, shared last name} on the back of their note card. What a great idea!

In addition to defining every gorgeous detail on the printed cards, this couple also embellished their wedding invitation suite perfectly with a gold gilded edge on the cards and a pop of color with a shimmering aquamarine envelope liner.

Let us help you define every detail {big + small} on your custom wedding invitations! Remember, you have our entire design library at your fingertips. Choosing from these elements, you can create your own design – have fun! And, create the wedding invitation suite, sure to woo all of your wedding guests.

Foil Stamped 40th Birthday Invitation

We are back today to share details and images of the invitation you caught a peek of on Bravo’s My Fab 40th. This very special event required a stand-out invitation. For the main invitation card, the centerpiece of any suite, Rose Gold foil was selected to highlight the striking type treatment featuring an Art Deco font in various sizes along with horizontal lines to show off the foil and highlight the wording of the invitation.

With the Rose Gold foil stamping on the Savoy Brilliant White letterpress stock for the front, a shimmery pale Coral card stock was selected for the back of the card. The two colors duplexed together made for a luxe card with a thick, board-like feel when held in your hand. The shimmery Coral on the back of the card was the backdrop for a custom all-over pattern. This new pattern {Pattern-156 in our Design Library} was printed in Black and Rose Gold foil to emphasize the thick and thin lines and add contrast to this dynamic pattern.

To top it all off, the invitation was edge painted in solid black to frame each side. The invitation was mailed in a black envelope with a shimmery Coral envelope liner and more of the striking type treatment from the invitation printed on the return address in more Rose Gold foil.

Art-Deco-Sample

We do have a limited number of samples available. To see a sample of this invitation in person, just contact one of our retailers and request a copy. Retailers, that goes for you too! If you would like a copy, just send us a quick email or give us a call.

Client Customization – Camille Invitation with Letterpress Art Deco Pattern

This robin’s egg blue + begonia beauty is a variation of one of our most versatile designs. This Camille customization, and how a simple change to your favorite design elements, is exactly why we built our Custom Wedding Portfolio. With its decorative frame and patterned background, this square letterpress invitation can take on many looks just by simply choosing a different pattern and color palette which is exactly what this bride and groom have done.

After swapping out the original Florentine-feeling graphic botanical pattern for a detailed pattern reminiscent of an Art Deco tile pattern, a completely new design is created. One that is beautifully suited to their coastal California wedding at the Santa Barbara Biltmore.

Suite Spotlight – Presidio Letterpress Wedding Invitation

We are thrilled to share with you our latest Suite Spotlight! Our Presidio suite is one we have kept under wraps for a few months now and we are delighted that it is finally making its debut this week here on our blog, on our website and in Martha Stewart Weddings magazine. We think you will find it perfectly on trend and we hope that it fulfills your needs for another stunning take on an Art Deco-inspired event.

Dauphine Press Presidio Letterpress Wedding Invitation featured in Martha Stewart Weddings

This sophisticated letterpress wedding invitation suite was created for a modern wedding, featuring bold palm graphics and layers of geometric patterns. For the couple that values high design, this collection would be suitable for any extraordinary event in an endless number of color combinations and print techniques. Presidio was originally designed in jade {a custom color!} and sea glass letterpress inks with a splash of saffron gold. We are looking forward to its future customizations, as we are sure we will soon see requests for this suite in brilliant foils mixed with an array of letterpress inks. A few we’re dying to print – rose gold foil with blush and champagne inks, gold foil printed on an elegant duplexed black card or in combination with deep teal ink!
