Client Customization – Traditional Custom Foil Wedding Invitation

This wedding invitation is what our design process is all about! Along with the help of our exclusive retailer, Posh Parties, this couple pulled details from different designs shown in our Custom Wedding Portfolio II to create a brand new design … one that is personalized to them and resulted in a truly elegant and beautiful wedding invitation suite. We love seeing creative minds at work and being part of that “a-ha moment” when everything falls into place and feels exactly right!


This design was first inspired by our Monterey wedding invitation suite, which includes a color-contrasting belly band that acts as a reveal for the names of the wedding couple or the wedding date. For this version, the couple selected a shimmering pyrite colored paper that hints of a graceful champagne color. Keeping things traditional, they then chose platinum foil on our double-thick natural white stock with platinum gilded edges. The platinum foil was used for their traditional wording as well as the framing details borrowed from our Hamilton wedding invitation suite.

Client Customization – Lovely Lavender Letterpress Invitation

We love the way the subtle lavender touches add dimension to this Vreeland wedding suite customization. This invitation utilizes, what we call in letterpress printing, a “fill.” Looking at the etched floral motif, you can see that there is a solid layer of lavender ink printed beneath it, which gives it a hint of color and differentiates it from the blind printed lattice in the background.

Starting with that lovely touch on the main invitation card, this suite includes many other pretty layers that will be sure to have guests excited for the big day. The neutral color palette, elegant shimmery pocket folder, the different uses of the signature etched floral motif and the luxe belly band wrap up the entire invitation into one pretty package.


We would love to help you design your own pretty package for your wedding invitations. Contact us or get in touch with your local Dauphine Press exclusive retailer to gather inspiration and ideas from our Custom Wedding Portfolio.


Custom Letterpress Lace Wedding Invitation

Lace is such a classic and romantic wedding element. We’re thrilled to see it making a resurgence in wedding decor these days! We recently added a bundle of new lace motif design elements to our design library and we love that this couple took full advantage of that! With a different portion of lace on each card, the overall look is high on design and personality!


We love the fine details here with the lace on the belly band that wraps all of the invitation cards together, the lace around the return address on the invitation envelope that alerts guests at first glance to this sure-to-be-gorgeous event and the overall color palette of shell and copper. What a beautiful custom design for this couple! If you would like to create your own custom wedding invitation, visit your local exclusive retailer to select your favorite elements today!

Client Customization – The Rutherford Suite

Happy Friday! We wanted to share with you this playful take on our Rutherford suite. This customization comes from the lovely ladies of Byrd & Bleecker. We think the frame is the perfect match for this flirty and floral design, while the Papaya ink adds a pop of color and compliments the Parchment ink.

The script font keeps the suite feeling fresh and sweet, and the lattice pattern on the belly band adds a nice graphic touch that works well with the border. We really enjoyed seeing this design come together and can’t wait to see what custom creation is next.
