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.


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!

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.


Client Customization – Magical Wedding Rehearsal Invitation

We love the concept and overall feel the combination of design elements evokes on this invitation. What better way to have guests anticipating a “magical night under the stars” than with gold foil stamped stars, a blind letterpress impression of a tropical palm tree, gold edge painting and a fanciful script!


This invitation is a perfect example of a couple making the most of every piece of stationery in their wedding suite. If your heart is set on a traditional wedding invitation, but you’re feeling the pull to do something unique, why not have fun with your rehearsal dinner or Sunday brunch invitation? We’re here to help you define every piece of stationery for your wedding. Visit your local stationer and Dauphine Press retailer to get their expert advice on finding your design style!
