Get The Look – Floral Beauty

Our entire team can get pretty excited about a unique color palette! Today’s Get the Look post is all about bold color and romance – a perfect combination for a wedding invitation! We’re taken by the shades of purple and lavender paired with deep fuchsia pink in this fashion image. The balance of softness and bold color was something we would love to duplicate on paper.

To begin, our design team envisioned the wedding invitation wording printed in our cool metal grey letterpress ink on a thick luxe board card in a shimmery white micah. With a bright fuchsia painted edge to rival the lipstick shade on the model and bold foil stamping in our majestic purple to match the bright florals, this combination of elements really highlights this romantic color palette.

Get The Look – Castle Ruins

I know we’re all hoping that the warmth of spring will soon rise out of the cold winter. This striking image represents that joyous moment – one we wanted to recreate in a color and swatch palette. This combination would transform your stationery and would be the perfect way to give your wedding guests a glimpse of what is to come on your wedding day!

Our designers have paired a deep fuchsia pink letterpress ink and an elegantly duplexed card stock in London Fog. The neutral background of the cool gray invitation is finished with a pop of warm color for the painted edge. To complete the package, they have picked a black unryu decorative paper liner to add texture.

In the right situation even a soft shade of color can create a visual pop! We love the combination of this soft pop of coral and the graphic bold stripes. What a statement this combination would make on a wedding invitation! We’re dreaming of a bold black + white stripe on the back of an invitation and colorful coral edge painting!

Hope you have an inspiring weekend!

Get the Look – Bird Cage Headpiece

This striking image evokes such a rich and high-end demure feel that our team wanted to pull a collection of our custom design elements to recreate this look as a wedding invitation.

Translating inspiration photos and mood boards into a stunning stationery wardrobe is what our team does best. Pulling from our Custom Wedding Portfolio II and Design Library, our designers envision pairing our rich espresso letterpress ink for the wording and a gold foil design element on the main portion of the invitation. With striking cardinal edge painting as an accent and cool London fog gray envelope liner, this fashion-inspired suite would be complete!

Client Customization – Fancy Foil Stamped Save the Date

Using our Fairfield invitation pattern as their inspiration, the couple behind today’s Client Customization created a design that is the epitome of “traditional with a twist”. Our Fairfield pattern is set as a foil border detail, framing a classic save the date design with the client-created monogram and script font. The “twist” this couple designed – along with their local Dauphine Press retailer Carolyn at The Write Touch in Jacksonville, Florida – is a layer of pale pink letterpress ink (our shell) under the gold foil border. We love the dimension the printed solid creates under the foil stamped border!
