Dauphine Press Loves {wedding color palette}

We are kicking off a new series today! As a team we always find ourselves talking about our favorite things – blog posts we have read, images and articles in magazines and of course wedding and stationery details! We will be sharing some of our favorites right here on our blog. It will give you a little peek into the team creating your wedding stationery and hopefully provide a bit of inspiration for your custom wedding stationery!

Color can have a huge impact on an event and we understand that having the perfect color, the perfect match, is very important to brides and grooms. It’s also something that as designers and printers, we can suggest and create the perfect color for any wedding invitation. So, today we’re each sharing our (current!) favorite wedding color palette:

Dauphine Press Loves - Wedding Color Palette

{Abbey} Navy blue is a classic choice and a great alternative to black that really allows the gorgeous pops of coral to shine. When translating this color palette into wedding stationery, Abbey would add elements of parchment to soften the overall look. (image: 12)

{Kendra} Soothing pool blue alongside a fresh lemon yellow creates a fun and romantic wedding palette, ideal for an outdoor event. How perfect would this combination be on a variation of our Calistoga suite? (image: 1)

{Kristie} The combination of black and gold is sure to get guests excited about your wedding day! The look is complete when paired with touches of a champagne color as shown on our Stinson wedding invitation suite. (image: 123)

{Carissa} It’s all about your favorite bright, bold pop of color with Carissa’s favorite wedding color palette! Carissa suggests a design like our Carneros suite with black letterpress ink for the copy, design touches in a light gray or blind hit and a perfect pop of color like a painted edge! (image: 12)

Happy Holidays from Dauphine Press

We love the holidays for all of their visual beauty — the sights and sounds of the season, the decorative gift wrapping, all of the event planning with family and friends gathering around a perfectly set table! But, most of all, we love the way the holidays bring on a time when everyone is reflecting on the year past, dreaming about a bright future and wishing all of their family and friends the very best!

All of us at Dauphine Press are very excited for what 2014 will bring … and especially what Dauphine Press will bring to you! We couldn’t do it without all of our amazing retailers and the beautiful couples we have the pleasure of working with every day. Thank you so much for sharing in this journey with us!

Happy Holidays to you and yours!

Client Customization – A Peachy Take on Marinwood

I can’t tell you how often I hear people in our industry talk about how hard it is to design their own stationery! When you are exposed to such gorgeous design and printing every single day, I am the first to admit that it can be a painfully slow process when it comes time to narrow down all of the amazing choices into a single card for yourself. However, this time around, when it came time to design {another!} baby announcement, it was much less daunting!

With the help of Dauphine Press designers Matt and Heather and my client services sidekick Tracy, I had the perfect team to help me pull this design together. Focusing on every detail from the color palette to the perfectly petite pattern behind the photograph and the ideal art for the first panel to the most fabulous fonts for my baby girl’s name, it came together in no time. I absolutely love the end result and I’m especially pleased with the way it complements big sister’s announcement that we created two years ago.

Right from the start, I knew that I wanted to go with the same trifold format as Chelsea’s announcement {baby number one}, since that worked so well the first time around. This format has proven itself to be a great fit for everything from a big announcement to a wedding details card packed with travel information. And, let’s not forget what a precious keepsake it makes with it’s small size and luxe print techniques.

Our Marinwood design has seen many variations since it was released two years ago – check out a few of our favorites here and here. Are you looking for the perfect announcement or save the date? Visit one of our exclusive retailers and share with them all the ways you would customize your very own trifold.
