Get the Look – Natural Details For Letterpress Stationery

There is something about this photograph of Joseph Gordon-Levitt for Details magazine that really has us inspired. We love the wonderfully natural color palette, the layers of texture and the slick car. It’s the perfect inspiration for our gentleman’s edition of our Get the Look series.

The palette we’re dreaming up would include espresso letterpress ink printed on a thick duplexed card of London fog gray. For the embellishments, we love the addition of a gold painted edge and smart indigo envelope liner. Apply this recipe to any of our existing designs to create a dashing design for any event.

Suite Spotlight – Maybeck Letterpress Wedding Invitation

The subtle buttercream letterpress printed background pattern, paired with a clean typeface in metal ink on our Maybeck design, creates a perfectly whimsical and modern wedding invitation suite. The two love birds perched on a wire are the focal point of the invitation, while variations of the lovely lark adorn the accessory cards and envelopes.

Get the Look – Dreamy Disposition, An Inspiring Look For Letterpress Invitations

This striking photograph of Kat Dennings has the perfect blend of hard and soft components. Deep, rich colors are offset by her soft makeup and coloring, while the backdrop evokes a vintage feeling. All of these elements are the perfect foundation for fall wedding inspiration.

To capture this juxtaposition, we would love to see one of our more feminine designs like Kentfield or Kasbah customized in this darker color palette. We’re dreaming of olive green letterpress ink paired with gold foil stamping with a French roast colored backer card and antique gold envelope liner.  Want to make that transformation for your letterpress wedding stationery?

We are kicking off a new series today! As a team we always find ourselves talking about our favorite things – blog posts we have read, images and articles in magazines and of course wedding and stationery details! We will be sharing some of our favorites right here on our blog. It will give you a little peek into the team creating your wedding stationery and hopefully provide a bit of inspiration for your custom wedding stationery!

Color can have a huge impact on an event and we understand that having the perfect color, the perfect match, is very important to brides and grooms. It’s also something that as designers and printers, we can suggest and create the perfect color for any wedding invitation. So, today we’re each sharing our (current!) favorite wedding color palette:

Dauphine Press Loves - Wedding Color Palette

{Abbey} Navy blue is a classic choice and a great alternative to black that really allows the gorgeous pops of coral to shine. When translating this color palette into wedding stationery, Abbey would add elements of parchment to soften the overall look. (image: 12)

{Kendra} Soothing pool blue alongside a fresh lemon yellow creates a fun and romantic wedding palette, ideal for an outdoor event. How perfect would this combination be on a variation of our Calistoga suite? (image: 1)

{Kristie} The combination of black and gold is sure to get guests excited about your wedding day! The look is complete when paired with touches of a champagne color as shown on our Stinson wedding invitation suite. (image: 123)

{Carissa} It’s all about your favorite bright, bold pop of color with Carissa’s favorite wedding color palette! Carissa suggests a design like our Carneros suite with black letterpress ink for the copy, design touches in a light gray or blind hit and a perfect pop of color like a painted edge! (image: 12)
