Client Customization – Williams (Palm Tree)

Tropical or destination weddings are the perfect excuse for brightly colored wedding stationery. This Palm Beach Monogram client customization features a single palm tree and Watermark font, creating a simplistic yet fun design. The monochromatic invitation is letterpress printed in an attention-grabbing custom PMS color with matching edge painting for that added pop. With this design, less is definitely more!

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!

Get the Look – Natural Details For Letterpress Stationery

There is something about this photograph of Joseph Gordon-Levitt for Details magazine that really has us inspired. We love the wonderfully natural color palette, the layers of texture and the slick car. It’s the perfect inspiration for our gentleman’s edition of our Get the Look series.

The palette we’re dreaming up would include espresso letterpress ink printed on a thick duplexed card of London fog gray. For the embellishments, we love the addition of a gold painted edge and smart indigo envelope liner. Apply this recipe to any of our existing designs to create a dashing design for any event.

We will be sharing some of our favorites right here on our blog. It will give you a little peek into the team creating your wedding stationery and hopefully provide a bit of inspiration for your custom wedding stationery!

Color can have a huge impact on an event and we understand that having the perfect color, the perfect match, is very important to brides and grooms. It’s also something that as designers and printers, we can suggest and create the perfect color for any wedding invitation. So, today we’re each sharing our (current!) favorite wedding color palette:

Dauphine Press Loves - Wedding Color Palette

{Abbey} Navy blue is a classic choice and a great alternative to black that really allows the gorgeous pops of coral to shine. When translating this color palette into wedding stationery, Abbey would add elements of parchment to soften the overall look. (image: 12)

{Kendra} Soothing pool blue alongside a fresh lemon yellow creates a fun and romantic wedding palette, ideal for an outdoor event. How perfect would this combination be on a variation of our Calistoga suite? (image: 1)

{Kristie} The combination of black and gold is sure to get guests excited about your wedding day! The look is complete when paired with touches of a champagne color as shown on our Stinson wedding invitation suite. (image: 123)

{Carissa} It’s all about your favorite bright, bold pop of color with Carissa’s favorite wedding color palette! Carissa suggests a design like our Carneros suite with black letterpress ink for the copy, design touches in a light gray or blind hit and a perfect pop of color like a painted edge! (image: 12)
