A Blog by Dauphine Press

Dauphine Press Loves {wedding color palette}

We are kicking off a new series today! 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! 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)

We understand how much time and thought is put into the color palette of every wedding invitation we are lucky enough to design and print. We love color, and playing with color. We can’t wait to see what you’ve chosen as your wedding color palette!

Suite Spotlight – Beechwood Letterpress Bar Mitzvah Invitation

The letterpress printed wood grain pattern of our large square Beechwood invitation is the standout element on this Bar Mitzvah design. Used throughout the suite in buttercream ink, the wood grain pattern is artfully paired with a wide cocoa colored backer card, a green tea pocket folder and woodblock typeface. On both the inspiration board and final printed suite, a masculine, yet playful look is achieved.

Get the Look – Well Suited Letterpress Invitation Inspiration

We have created a fair amount of note cards, birthday and bar mitzvah invitations, suited for the most dapper of men and we wanted to share some of that inspiration with you. This photograph of Chris Pine for C for Men is a great example of what inspires us. The steely color palette, artisan printing technique and luxe embellishments would leave an impression that no one would forget.

This gentleman’s edition of our Get the Look series features a palette of metal and blue topaz letterpress inks on our thick cotton paper. With a black linen backer card framing the invitation and wrapped in a turtle dove gray pocket folder, this palette could transform any design into a well suited stationery suite.

This stunning photograph of Amy Adams was taken by Norman Jean Roy for Allure magazine. Many details of this image would translate well to stationery – everything from her beautiful lace dress to the deep red roses.
