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.

Dauphine Press in BRIDES Magazine!

This past winter we were thrilled to work with the editorial team at  BRIDES magazine! We created a fresh customization of our Yountville design for their Red & Orange “Pick Your Palette” feature in the June/July 2014 issue. The new variation of this crisp, modern design features our cantaloupe letterpress ink for the large monogram, which is complemented by the custom red ink used for the wording and vibrant edge painting. The bright poppy orange envelope with custom red return address and monogram is the perfect finishing touch!

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 budgetfriendly 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.
