Suite Spotlight – Stratford Letterpress Wedding Invitation

Last week we shared the first of four brand new suites added to our Custom Wedding Portfolio II. Today we’re looking at the inspiration behind our take on classic black and white! 

Elegance at its best, our Stratford wedding invitation incorporates a traditional font combination in jet black letterpress ink framed by a romantic, detailed damask pattern in a subtle varnish. The “icing on the cake” is the coordinating invitation envelope in a textured black linen with our white foil stamping on the decorative return address. With white calligraphy, this suite is sure to delight guests the second they receive the mail. This alluring design is ideal for the couple looking for a contemporary take on the black tie wedding.

Dauphine Press in The Wedding Co. Magazine

Thanks to one of our amazing exclusive retailers, William Ashley in Toronto, a fabulous variation of our Glen Ellen design was featured in The Wedding Co. Magazine!


The publication created a fun challenge for a handful of stationers, florists and bakers and the results are stunning! Each “team” was given a few items of inspiration and the results were combined on the pages of the latest issue. With Bohdan from William Ashley leading the way, {just as he will when you visit him to design your wedding invitations}, we created a modified version of our Glen Ellen design to suit the timeless black, white and silver wedding stationery wardrobe.

Loving the classic feel of the Glenn Ellen corner details, Bohdan asked us to incorporate them onto a large, square invitation card in a glimmering silver foil. Paired with traditional fonts in black letterpress and finished with one of our lace-like, patterned paper wraps, a silver paper belly band and luxe double-faced satin ribbon  the look was complete!

This is truly the best part of our job — seeing one of our invitations take on a new direction to become something personal and special for another paper fan! All you have to do to get started on creating your own custom wedding suite is to get in touch with a Dauphine Press exclusive retailer {like William Ashley!} in your area!
