Client Customization – Gold Foil Chevron Pattern Save the Date

We know you’re going to love today’s Client Customization! How can you go wrong these days with gold foil and a chevron pattern? Pair those two elements with a gorgeous script font and unique layout and you have one stunning save the date card!

Dauphine Press Client Customization - Gold Foil Chevron Pattern Save the Date card, custom design

This creation was designed by our beloved retailer INK in San Diego, California using their client’s favorite elements from our Custom Wedding Portfolio II. If you are dreaming up a unique design you can be sure to find the elements in our design library so that we can build it from scratch! You don’t have to start with one of our existing designs when designing your own wedding stationery if you don’t want to. And, the best news is, it doesn’t cost extra to create your own design – our price is the same whether you take inspiration from one of our existing designs or build something yourself using our custom design elements!

Client Customization – The Sonoma Suite

We thought we would kick off the new year with a beautiful client customization of our Sonoma suite. This elegant design came to us from Judy Paulen Designs at Bloomingdale’s. Along with Judy Paulen Designs, the client was also working with Enjoy Events Co. in creating the perfect design to accompany their wedding day event. The soft Warmed White colored paper, custom ink color and shine from the Pearl foil create a subtle, yet show stopping suite. The flourishes from the original Sonoma design were paired with a bold chevron pattern, chandelier motif and peony floral to make a truly custom design.

Suite Spotlight – Carneros Letterpress Wedding Invitation

Today we want to put the spotlight on one of our most popular designs – Carneros. Carneros has seen many customizations from real brides and grooms, but its timeless design is always present, no matter how our couples customize it.

Two of the main highlights on this design are the painted edges in Sunshine and the Dauphine Press exclusive envelope liner in a coordinating Sunshine chevron pattern. Swapping out these two elements means that the core of the design — the traditional letterpress monogram in our Varnish ink and modern typefaces — is still strong and present, but the suite as a whole still has a big impact and will suit your unique event.

With our recent updates to our Design Library and custom elements, the possibilities really are endless for this piece. Our expanded edge painting palette means you now have 58 colors to choose from, not to mention the same number of options for liner colors in any of our patterns!

You may recall that Carneros was also the subject of our style shoot from earlier this year {here is the behind the scenes look at the shoot}. Below are even more amazing shots of this suite as well as our design team’s inspiration for the original design.

Dauphine Press Peony design on Style Me Pretty

We were thrilled to see a letterpress wedding invitation suite we printed on the new Style Me Pretty Texas blog. This bride, also an interior designer, worked with our Houston retailer Katie & Co. to customize the Peony design from our Wedding Portfolio. We can’t get enough of all of the design elements the bride created herself. As Abby Blaire writes for SMP “She not only designed the bridesmaid dresses, boutonnieres and so much more but she also designed her own gown.”

We are wholeheartedly impressed.
