Client Customization – A Traditional Take on Stinson

Our Stinson letterpress and foil wedding invitation suite is one of our most talked about designs. Printed on our Elegant duplexed stock in a shimmering pyrite color, we have seen many couples use this very contemporary design as inspiration. Working with their local retailer, Sweet Paper in La Jolla, California, this couple created a brand new look with just a few simple changes. With our Custom Wedding Portfolio, these changes don’t add any cost to the order — in fact, these changes actually make this version an even more budget-friendly choice! Let’s take a look …

The first customization selected was to switch from the metallic paper stock to our cotton letterpress stock. This instantly gives the suite a softer and more traditional feel. Mixing a classic, neutral color palette of black and buttercream letterpress inks with a fun script font, a completely different look is achieved. We especially love how the black ink balances with the white cotton paper and places the bride and groom’s names center stage on the invitation while highlighting the floral motif and simple border details.

As mentioned above, one of the best parts of making changes like these is that there is no additional cost to do so! The custom process built into every design ordered from our Custom Wedding Portfolio also allows flexibility to fit into any budget! So, visit one of our exclusive retailers, like Sweet Paper, to start the design of your custom wedding suite today and take advantage of the free custom design we offer with every order. You can change the color palettetypefacepatterns and motifs on any suite and there is no additional cost!

Client Customization – Yountville Bat Mitzvah Invitation

When we set out to build our Custom Wedding Portfolio, we created it in a way that allowed for all of the designs to be customized to suit any type of event – holiday, baby announcements, showers, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs and even personal stationery. Using our gallery of designs as the inspiration and our design library full of custom elements, each design detail can be personalized to create any stationery from the ground up. With this in mind, we have another fantastic non-wedding Client Customization to share with you today.

A fun take on our Yountville suite, today’s design came to us from our exclusive retailer RSVP in Roslyn, New York. Their client was inspired by the large monogram featured on our Yountville invitation, but wanted to personalize it a step further. They chose our large square, Royal size card and our design team adjusted the design to make the most of the space, while still allowing it to make the same bold statement. Keeping with the allover modern feel of this suite, the client chose a subtle color palette. The sweet, wisteria touches perfectly grace the monogram, the painted edges on the invitation card and the delicate pattern of our Dauphine Press exclusive Solage envelope liner.

Client Customization – Calligraphy with a burst of color!

Today’s client customization is a great example of how to use our custom design process to create a truly personalized stationery suite and an illustration of how small touches can have a big impact! The secret behind this customization is that it was actually customized twice! Please allow me to explain . . .

The original order came to us from our exclusive retailer Invitations and More, by Bonnie in New York. Bonnie and her client  created a beautiful, traditional design. Knowing that we can work with any supplied letterpress-friendly artwork {for no additional cost!}, Bonnie and her client sent us hand calligraphy. Working with calligraphers is something we do quite often and pairing letterpress printing and the hand of a true graphic artist is one of our favorite things to do. The letterpress printing and deep impression in our premium cotton papers has a way of really showcasing the thin and thick lines of hand lettering. Using our large royal size invitation {an oversized large square} in an off-white color, the calligraphy printed in black letterpress ink really showcases the hand calligraphy.

When our favorite industry magazine, Stationery Trends, was looking for images for their Chartreuse Color Wheel feature for their Winter 2012 issue, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to see what we could do to transform this traditional invitation suite. With just a simple edge painting embellishment we were able to create something completely different – and just as gorgeous! For the green edging, we chose a custom neon shade of green to really give it that pop we were looking for. Take a look for yourself:

We feel the story behind the two versions of this suite are a perfect marriage of what is current and what is always in style. Which version is your favorite? Are you classically traditional or do you like a splash of trendy mixed with your modern?

Client Customization – A Regal Variation of the Larkspur Suite

The Larkspur Suite is one of our best sellers here at Dauphine Press, so we are very excited to show you a gorgeous and exceptionally regal customization of this very versatile design. Our exclusive retailer, By Invitation Only, worked with their client to create a stately version of this letterpress and foil invitation suite. Still loving the engraved style font paired with a classic serif as well as the decor inspired patterns of the original, this bride and groom chose to alter the color palette, making this suite their own. It’s nice to see that with a simple and smart color palette shift the overall feel of a design can be personalized. You don’t always have to reinvent the wheel – just pick your favorite elements and we will run with it!
