Suite Spotlight – Princeton Foil Stamped Wedding Invitation

We love every one of our invitation designs equally, but with this round of new wedding invitation samples for our Custom Wedding Portfolio II we may have played favorites … we love the technique of using two layers of foil stamping on our last new design, Princeton. We hope you love it as much as we do!

An epic day deserves an equally glorious and captivating invitation. The Princeton wedding invitation suite is your perfect match with an abundance of sweet romance and the most opulent elements. Printed in both pearl and silver foil on a sweet die-cut card and paired with shimmery metallic envelope liner and response envelope, this suite is like a vintage piece of jewelry saved for the most extraordinary of events.

We created our Custom Wedding Portfolio knowing that every couple we work with would like the opportunity to customize their wedding stationery. We love creating inspiration, like the Princeton wedding invitation suite, to show you how you can dream big like two layers of foil stamping and a diecut shape! Pairing your ideas with the elements in our Custom Wedding Portfolio, you’re sure to end up with a design that is unique to you and your wedding day. Best of all, it is also designed to be fun! We encourage you to scour our website {don’t forget to check out our Search By Style feature} and meet with the experts at your local Dauphine Press retailer to get their guidance and input.

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!

Client Customization – Joie de Vivre Holiday Card

You often hear designers say that the hardest pieces to create are the ones you use for yourself. The key is finding the right inspiration! You also hear us talk a lot about our exclusive retailers – all of the talented stationers around the globe that are an extension of us and help couples create their wedding stationery every day – and how much we love working with them and appreciate their expertise. Seems simple, but we used them as our inspiration. Knowing that, like us, they love what they do every day, have a passion for creating the best printed pieces for very special events and as a result get to live what they love!

Feeling that this really is the key to a happy life – live what you love – we created our Joie de Vivre holiday card.  Using this French phrase and making it beautiful felt like the perfect sentiment to extend to all of our retailers for the New Year. We turned to our beloved Custom Wedding Portfolio II for additional inspiration and customized a design in the same way we encourage every Dauphine Press bride and groom to do. First, we selected the layering details from our Rutherford wedding invitation where the vibrant font is printed over a subtle all-over floral pattern. Then, we paired it with the petite die-cut card from our Calistoga suite and a brand new design was born.

Client Customization – Autumnal Ainsley Update

We talk about the weather and seasons a lot around here, don’t we?! Those two elements are important for weddings and for the couples planning them, so they’re important to us too! We know that fall is a favorite of many and we love seeing all of the blog posts and Instagram updates of people celebrating this new season. We especially love the thought of all of the couples out there who have planned weddings this fall and how this shift will elevate their excitement over their pending nuptials. Soon, all of our fall couples will be able to celebrate the hard work they have put into planning all the fine details of their wedding day, honoring the most special union between two people!

We thought we would jump right in, join in the fun, and share a charming update to our Ainsley suite that is the perfect customization for a fall wedding. For any of you enjoying the new season, or if you’re planning a fall wedding, we know you will love how our exclusive retailer, Papel New York in Brooklyn, customized this letterpress wedding invitation suite for their bride and groom.

A few weeks ago we shared the original Ainsley design with you and how the color palette was perfect for that late summer/early fall wedding. Inspired by the Ainsley design in our Coral Weddings album, Raegan at Papel New York did what she does best. With just a few design changes, she completely transformed this design. With a simple ink color change, script font selection and motif choice, this version is now completely ready for fall! The fun die-cut shape is still the focal point of this suite and will likely be the first thing your guests notice, but this version includes a tone-on-tone rust and espresso color palette that brings an added layer of elegance to the overall design. Paired with the decorative script font for the bride and groom’s names and swapping out the decorative monogram for the charming oak tree motif, this letterpress wedding invitation suite is a gorgeous twist on traditional.
