We’re giving today’s Suite Spotlight a little twist! While you’ve already seen the original inspiration for our Monterey design, created for the gorgeous Peony Pop vignette at The Lab Event, today we wanted to illustrate how versatile letterpress and foil invitation suites can truly be. Monterey is perfectly suited for fun and playful affairs like the one designed for The Lab, but it can also make the ideal introduction to a romantic and neutral palette as shown in today’s inspiration board.

We love Monterey for its 1960s decor-inspired sunburst monogram in gold foil. In fact, we love it so much that we were sure to include this motif on the accessory pieces to highlight key details, such as the response date on the reply card and the title on the menu card. In its original version, the shell colored letterpress details on the invitation border and on the exclusive liner pattern allowed the sunburst detail to be the star. And, the sweet lemon meringue papers used for the response card and personalized belly band rounded out the color palette, while securing all of the invitation elements. With our custom design process, any of these details could be modified to highlight your favorite detail in any color palette. With a design as versatile and classic as Monterey, the options are endless!

Recently we introduced a new series here on The Fine Print – our Designer’s Pick posts. We are very fortunate to have a team that brings creativity and spirit to their work and is invested in providing each client with a truly custom design. Through these regular posts, our designers will be choosing their favorite suites to share with you.
One of my favorite Dauphine Press designs is Leavenworth. I remember when it was being created and how much I enjoyed its modern simplicity. The letterpress printed sans serif fonts paired with the graphic border reminds me of the refined typography of museum exhibits. I also appreciate that it is one of our bolder save the dates, which makes it perfect for the stylish couple looking for a timeless and sophisticated design for their wedding stationery.
Our Leavenworth design is one of many about to be posted to the gallery section of our website. Keep an eye on our website as the number of suites is about to triple!
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.

Everyone loves a great inspiration style shoot — us included! It’s an even bigger treat to work with some of the most amazing wedding vendors out there and collaborate on creating visuals that will inspire brides and grooms with every large and small detail.
This Vintage Hollywood shoot is no exception. Recently featured on Style Me Pretty, these beautiful details are the result of a collaboration with MLKL Photography, Olam Weddings and Kerry Quade.
Stylistically, this suite’s chic typography was inspired by high fashion with a nod to the mid-century design. The gold foil impressed into the soft cotton paper is what gives this suite the rich and luxurious feeling associated with vintage Hollywood. The delicate, foil-stamped border and text is reminiscent of gold jewelry and truly catches the light like a diamond ring. The palette is still bright and beautiful — the whimsical, Wisteria-colored, hand-painted edges and a custom envelope liner give it a little vintage ’60s, beach-side flair while remaining sophisticated.
