Get the Look – Emerald Paradise

Actress Emily Blunt graced Harper’s Bazaar Australia last fall and left a lasting impression. The rich colors in this photo – the emerald green, chocolate brown and metallic gold – make for a very luxurious feel. Our design team translated this look into a wedding wardrobe using details from our Custom Wedding Portfolio II album along with one perfect custom touch. That personal touch is a custom emerald letterpress ink. Along with all of the colors in our letterpress and foil palette, we can always source custom inks. Just send us a swatch, a photo or the exact Pantone color you want to use. Paired with touches like our gold edge painting, a pyrite paper wrap and a slate double-faced satin ribbon, this fashion shoot inspired suite is sure to impress your guests and be the perfect first glimpse into your gorgeous wedding day.

Suite Spotlight – Presidio Letterpress Wedding Invitation

We are thrilled to share with you our latest Suite Spotlight! Our Presidio suite is one we have kept under wraps for a few months now and we are delighted that it is finally making its debut this week here on our blog, on our website and in Martha Stewart Weddings magazine. We think you will find it perfectly on trend and we hope that it fulfills your needs for another stunning take on an Art Deco-inspired event.

First, the breathtaking inspiration:

Dauphine Press Presidio Letterpress Wedding Invitation featured in Martha Stewart Weddings

This sophisticated letterpress wedding invitation suite was created for a modern wedding, featuring bold palm graphics and layers of geometric patterns. For the couple that values high design, this collection would be suitable for any extraordinary event in an endless number of color combinations and print techniques. Presidio was originally designed in jade {a custom color!} and sea glass letterpress inks with a splash of saffron gold. We are looking forward to its future customizations, as we are sure we will soon see requests for this suite in brilliant foils mixed with an array of letterpress inks. A few we’re dying to print – rose gold foil with blush and champagne inks, gold foil printed on an elegant duplexed black card or in combination with deep teal ink!

Get the Look – Secret Garden

It’s clear that this time of year is a very inspiring time for all of us here at Dauphine Press {we just can’t stop talking about it – see proof here and here}. This piece of inspiration is perfect for the season and a great starting point for a custom wedding invitation suite. This gorgeous shoot from the pages of Vanity Fair features the beautiful Amanda Seyfried in an ethereal garden setting.

This stunning color palette {and overall look and feel} would translate well to a letterpress wedding invitation. Imagine the natural white 100% cotton paper letterpress printed with our wisteria ink and foil stamped with a touch of pearl. The look would be complete with a pop of fuchsia edge painting and a fresh, almost neutral, green {try Napa green!} envelope liner.

Suite Spotlight – Occidental Letterpress Wedding Invitation

We have another Suite Spotlight and beautiful inspiration board to share! Regal and formal, our Occidental design highlights the rich luxury of our cotton papers by incorporating a whisper of a background motif that, when letterpress printed, makes this design feel wonderfully tactile. Paired perfectly with a stately monogram and delicate script, the lace-like paper appears sophisticated, soft and bridal.
