Client Customization – Unique Die-cut Save the Date

We love sharing when something unique comes along! This save the date certainly fits the bill! With the uniquely-folded shape and standout diecut. Our retailer The Stovall Collection in Memphis, Tennessee sent this striking design our way! The team at The Stovall Collection has an amazing way of creating distinctive pieces for their clients using the tools in our Custom Wedding Portfolio II. This save the date features 1-color letterpress on each panel in a handsome olive green against the brilliant white cotton paper stock – a beautiful combination for announcing to your friends and family that your big day is just months away!

Spring Wishes from Dauphine Press

With sunnier days and warmer weather upon us, we are happily celebrating the Spring season here at Dauphine Press. This letterpress printed invitation exhibits the sweetest spring motifs, patterns and colors! We worked with our exclusive retailer For Heaven’s Sake in Beaumont, TX to design this adorable party invitation. The owner, Gina, wanted to create this gem for her very own annual gathering of family and friends {you can view the invite we printed for this event last year on our Instagram account!}.

Gina knew exactly what she wanted for the layout, fonts and color palette and asked our design team to suggest our favorite patterns for the decorative eggs. We offered a grouping from our collection of custom patterns that represented a balance of graphic and floral-inspired motifs. Above all, we chose patterns that beautifully displayed the letterpress printing. The beauty of a letterpress printed pattern on one of our cotton papers is that it can really show off the art and impression of letterpress printing.

We hope you are enjoying the Spring season with your family and friends!

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.
