Designer’s Inspiration {week ninety-two}

2.6-DI-WEEK-92

We are mesmerized by the smooth rich tones of the satin dress in this image! It has us daydreaming of creating a custom version of our Belvedere wedding invitation in satin gold foil on a thick duplexed black paper!

Hope you have an inspiring weekend!

Get the Look – Grey + Blush Inspiration for Wedding Invitations

This image from Canada’s FASHION Magazine has us falling in love with a grey and blush color palette all over again! The “classic meets feminine” combination is one we always love to play with {evidence here and here} but this time around our design team is sticking to just these two hues and we’re skipping the white altogether! That’s rare for a wedding invitation, we know, but we love the impact these color saturated design elements have on their own.

We almost always start with paper and ink when picking design elements. In this case we selected a subltely shimmery coral paper stock {duplexed into a thick card stock, of course} with our cool metal grey letterpress ink printed on it. Next comes another layer of metal, but this time in the form of edge painting. Then, we would wrap it all up in a luxe bisque double-faced satin ribbon.

The next step is the easy part – which of our designs would you love to see created with the combination of design elements? Your local Dauphine Press exclusive retailer can help you select your favorite elements and pair them with your favorite wedding invitation design. We can’t wait to see what you choose!

In our regular Get the Look series from the Dauphine Press design department, we share some of our favorite hot new style finds and make suggestions for how you can translate the same look into your wedding stationery using the many custom elements available to you in our design library. Keep in mind that ALL of our stationery suites receive a designer’s touch and every one of our designs is customizable. Pairing the color palette and embellishments above with any of our motifs or fonts allows us to create a stationery suite that is unique to you!

Client Customization – Larkspur Invitation Featuring Pearl & Rose Gold Foil

Today’s client customization is simply stunning! Lauren and Alexander worked with our retailer Elizabeth Grace to create their version of our Larkspur wedding invitation suite. Layering the suite with two different colors of foil (pearl and a custom rose gold!) and traditional black letterpress resulted in a lovely traditional invitation for this couple. Using the pearl foil for all of the patterns creates a beautiful backdrop for the rose gold foil frames and black letterpress printed wording. We’re in love with the results!

We’re back with another installment of our Dauphine Press Loves posts! As a team, we always find ourselves talking about our favorite things – blog posts we have read, images and articles in magazines and of course wedding and stationery details! With our Dauphine Press Loves posts we share our favorites right here on our blog. It gives you a little peek into the team creating your custom wedding stationery and hopefully provides a bit of inspiration!

Fonts can leave a lasting impression when it comes to wedding stationery. We love playing around with a mixture of different fonts and especially love seeing the countless combinations on all of our stationery!  Whether you are using all block fonts, all script, or a combination of both, fonts are a great way to set the tone for your big day. Since the list of fonts goes on and on, we would like to introduce to you today some of our favorite script fonts.

 

Dauphine Press Loves - Fonts

{Kendra} Kendra loves how the varying thick and thin lines of Piel Script radiate elegance and really show the best of letterpress printing.

{Kristie} Carolyna Pro is a whimsical, calligraphic script that’s both fun and classy, which is why Kristie is always delighted when she sees this font in stationery design!

{Abbey} Abbey adores the beautiful ornaments and delicate nature of Eloquence font. Combine this script with other serif or san serif fonts for a refined, polished look.

{Carissa} Belluccia Pro is Carissa’s favorite script font with its abundance of glyph options and classic, handwritten feel.

Client Customization – Morello (Orchid)

One of the amazing features available with our custom wedding portfolio is the option to choose any of the elements from our design library, such as motifs/patterns, fonts, ink colors and embellishments, and create your own wedding stationery design. Lauren and Gregory did just that by selecting a design and fonts that fit their vision the best, and creating this elegant orchid wedding invitation suite. The varnish letterpress ink color and the placement of the design leave a delicate and subtle, yet lasting impression in our minds!
