Client Customization – Larkspur Invitation Featuring Pearl & Rose Gold Foil

Today’s client customization is simply stunning! Lauren and Alexander worked with our retailer Elizabeth Grace to create their version of our Larkspur wedding invitation suite. Layering the suite with two different colors of foil (pearl and a custom rose gold!) and traditional black letterpress resulted in a lovely traditional invitation for this couple. Using the pearl foil for all of the patterns creates a beautiful backdrop for the rose gold foil frames and black letterpress printed wording. We’re in love with the results!


Creating a custom design can be as simple as changing the color palette to your chosen wedding colors. Want to see one of our classic designs in your palette? Contact your local Dauphine Press retailer to transform your favorite design into your custom invitation.

Suite Spotlight – Hot Air Balloon Letterpress Baby Stationery

We are sharing a very special Suite Spotlight with you today. This sweet set of baby stationery was created for a family we have had the pleasure of working with for many years – from bridal showers, wedding invitations, personal stationery and now, baby announcements. As usual, the client worked with our design team and our Custom Wedding Portfolio II program and selected all of their favorite elements to create a perfectly custom stationery suite.


The final suite included baby shower invitations, thank you notes and the baby announcement all featuring sketches of vintage hot air balloons. We love how the color palette varied for each piece, but still coordinated perfectly to tell the story. For the shower pieces, the color palette was chosen with mom in mind too and featured both pink and blue along with a gorgeous neutral gray. For the thank you notes and announcement, a softer palette was chosen since baby was the focus. The mix of fonts coordinated perfectly with the vintage theme and were used to highlight the most important details.

Are you expecting a new little bundle this year? We would love the opportunity to create custom stationery for you and your little one. Visit any of our retailers to get started on your very own custom design.

Rustic meets romantic on our Chalk Hill wedding stationery suite, which makes it perfect for events that range from casual to formal.
