Duke Basketball: Designing for the Winning Team

A few months back in the middle of a blizzard, our friend and 3/50 Project founder Cinda Baxter sent us a wonderful new client, Stacey Motley of The Paper Café in Raleigh, North Carolina. Stacey had a project she needed to be designed and printed on the fly for Duke University’s basketball team.

Stacey chose to die cut the invitation in the shape of a basketball. The piece was letterpress printed on double thick Crane Lettra. We did a blind hit of a the basketball texture into the background of the card which gave it added dimension.

Today we send our congratulations out to the Blue Devils on their 2010 NCAA win and also to the Butler Bulldogs for an amazing game last night!

Signature Sasha

Back in 2000 when I was a one-gal show, I picked up the phone and called an amazing wedding planner in Napa named Sasha Souza. Her work was vibrant, inspiring, inventive. I simply wanted to see if she would refer her clients to me for invitations. I had no idea the adventure I was signing up for by simply reaching out. 

Over the years, Sasha has become a dear friend and cherished colleague who continually inspires our creative team at Dauphine Press. She’s one of a kind and a true creative genius. We’re honored to be featured in her new book, Signature Sasha that’s making a huge splash in the weddings arena.

 Below are a few of our favorite custom letterpress wedding invitation shots from the Signature Sasha book. We are delighted to be included in the pages of this gorgeous book and so proud of our friend and colleague for having such a brilliant talent for events that it merited this wonderful book.
