Get the Look – Bird Cage Headpiece

This striking image evokes such a rich and high-end demure feel that our team wanted to pull a collection of our custom design elements to recreate this look as a wedding invitation.

Translating inspiration photos and mood boards into a stunning stationery wardrobe is what our team does best. Pulling from our Custom Wedding Portfolio II and Design Library, our designers envision pairing our rich espresso letterpress ink for the wording and a gold foil design element on the main portion of the invitation. With striking cardinal edge painting as an accent and cool London fog gray envelope liner, this fashion-inspired suite would be complete!

Take a look at our list of amazing Dauphine Press retailers across the country that are available to assist you in designing your custom wedding invitation suite.

Get the Look – Grey + Blush Inspiration for Wedding Invitations

This image from Canada’s FASHION Magazine has us falling in love with a grey and blush color palette all over again! The “classic meets feminine” combination is one we always love to play with {evidence here and here} but this time around our design team is sticking to just these two hues and we’re skipping the white altogether! That’s rare for a wedding invitation, we know, but we love the impact these color saturated design elements have on their own.

We almost always start with paper and ink when picking design elements. In this case we selected a subltely shimmery coral paper stock {duplexed into a thick card stock, of course} with our cool metal grey letterpress ink printed on it. Next comes another layer of metal, but this time in the form of edge painting. Then, we would wrap it all up in a luxe bisque double-faced satin ribbon.

The next step is the easy part – which of our designs would you love to see created with the combination of design elements? Your local Dauphine Press exclusive retailer can help you select your favorite elements and pair them with your favorite wedding invitation design. We can’t wait to see what you choose!

Client Customization – Morello (Orchid)

One of the amazing features available with our custom wedding portfolio is the option to choose any of the elements from our design library, such as motifs/patterns, fonts, ink colors and embellishments, and create your own wedding stationery design. Lauren and Gregory did just that by selecting a design and fonts that fit their vision the best, and creating this elegant orchid wedding invitation suite. The varnish letterpress ink color and the placement of the design leave a delicate and subtle, yet lasting impression in our minds!

By contacting one of our exclusive retailers, you can create one-of-a-kind stationery for the big day, just like this gorgeous work for art designed with the help of  Francis Orr.

Client Customization – Camille Invitation with Letterpress Art Deco Pattern

This robin’s egg blue + begonia beauty is a variation of one of our most versatile designs. This Camille customization, and how a simple change to your favorite design elements, is exactly why we built our Custom Wedding Portfolio. With its decorative frame and patterned background, this square letterpress invitation can take on many looks just by simply choosing a different pattern and color palette which is exactly what this bride and groom have done.

After swapping out the original Florentine-feeling graphic botanical pattern for a detailed pattern reminiscent of an Art Deco tile pattern, a completely new design is created. One that is beautifully suited to their coastal California wedding at the Santa Barbara Biltmore.

Suite Spotlight – Citron Letterpress Wedding Invitation

Our Citron invitation suite, featuring a vivid lemon branch, spritzed with stripes and a delicate filigree, is a refreshing choice for summery celebrations. This jaw dropping design is fun and cheerful and exhibits the ideal way to use three different letterpress inks the buttercup yellow and leaf green inks are used as fills behind the vintage botanical printed in espresso. The crowning detail is the mix of layered fonts three of them, to be exact, which are artfully placed on the invitation and accessory cards. But, the beauty of this suite doesn’t stop here! Beyond the invitation card and other letterpress printed cards, the ironwork-inspired envelope liner and bold yellow envelopes make this suite complete.
