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!

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 – Carneros Letterpress Holiday Card

It is so rewarding when something simple has a big impact, isn’t it?! Our exclusive retailer Paper Plane Paperie guided their client through a few simple edits that resulted in a beautiful new piece, one with lots of impact. It also happens to be perfect for the holidays!

Our Carneros letterpress wedding invitation is a favorite for its traditional touches. Carneros was the inspiration for Emily at Paper Plane Paperie and for her client looking to create a custom holiday party invitation. What a great candidate for a holiday greeting! With their custom design, they chose to shift the wreath detail from the original Carneros invitation to stand front and center on a slim card. With this small change, and by replacing the monogram from the original with the “happy holidays” greeting, this design was completely transformed!

Suite Spotlight – Marinwood Letterpress Holiday Card

Just last month we released our 2013 Timeless Custom Holiday Collection of letterpress and foil stamped holiday cards. We wanted to take some time and share with you all that you can create using our Holiday Collection. The process works just like our Custom Wedding Portfolio where you can build any design to suit your style. You can use any of our existing designs {holiday or wedding!} or build a design from the ground up using all of the design elements offered in our design library.

The Marinwood Holiday trifold we are highlighting today is a great example of taking inspiration from our existing designs and adding personal touches to create a unique-to-you design. Using our Marinwood save the date trifold as inspiration, this holiday card and moving announcement takes on a completely new look. The jolly message on the first panel, in standout vintage lettering, is a welcomed greeting for friends and family during the holidays. The recipient is then treated to a sweet surprise when they unfold the card to reveal a gorgeous 2-color letterpress vintage pattern printed on the center panel. Just like the inspiration piece, when placing a family photo over the center, the detailed design acts as a decorative frame. The last panel is used for another timely greeting and a smartly placed moving announcement. Color palette is key to this design as well – the perfectly selected red raspberry and willow inks complete the festive look!

Creating a unique design with our Custom Wedding Portfolio can be a very fun process – one that always results in a gorgeous piece of stationery that is an extension of you! Teaming up with one of our exclusive retailers, like For Heaven’s Sake in Beaumont, Texas who helped create this gorgeous design, is the perfect place to start.

Another great part of the process is finding inspiration to help you define your favorite design elements, color palette and overall look and feel of your new card.
