Suite Spotlight – Tayla Letterpress Bar Mitzvah Invitation

Our Tayla letterpress bat mitzvah invitation design is a beautiful balance of sweetness and spirit! The lovely allover floral pattern, coupled with the flowing typeface adds a bit of sophistication to this fresh and youthful letterpress design. The linear envelope liner, colored envelopes and pocket on the reverse of the oversized invitation add even more pop and interest to this suite.

The inspiration board we are sharing with you today for this playful design displays that same balance of sweetness and spirit and sophistication and youthfulness, we feel is great for any young girl celebrating her bat mitzvah.

Dauphine Press Tayla Letterpress Invitation

Tayla also transforms beautifully into a wedding invitation suite. Playing with all of the design elements, like swapping out colored papers, liners and ink colors or changing the font or background pattern on the invitation, make this letterpress suite the perfect starting point for your unique stationery.

Dreaming up all of the options for Tayla has us thinking about this recent post on The Perfect Palette. Color has so much power and we love Chrissy’s blog for celebrating that. Can you imagine our Tayla suite in shades of orange and aqua? How about traditional black and gold? Layers of neutrals would be so stunning, wouldn’t it?

Any of our exclusive retailers can help you explore all of the {endless!} options for designing your stationery wardrobe – whether it’s for a bat mitzvah, wedding or holiday invitation!

Get the Look – Pretty in Pink

The lovely Natalie Portman graced the Sofia Coppola directed ad (found here) for Miss Dior perfume earlier this year. We absolutely love this look and feel it is the ideal inspiration for the sophisticated bride who loves a soft and feminine feel. The wall of roses offers an array of pinks that make a compelling color palette with varied shades and hues. Nothing matches exactly, which is what really appeals to us — we love to layer and mix colors, patterns and fonts to create a truly unique design.

Our design team envisioned our petal pink and ice plant green letterpress inks printed on our premium cotton stock. With the thick stock edged in bold fuchsia and the envelope lined in a shimmering pyrite, this customization is a great example of how our custom design process can work for any look. All you have to do is pick your favorite design from our collection and apply these details and, voilà! — your ideal custom suite is created!

We love the simplicity displayed in this photo of Carey Mulligan for Harper’s Bazaar, UK. There is such beauty in the limited color palette and composition — one that could artfully be translated into stationery. We are loving soft and serene color palettes for wedding stationery these days, which is what our team pulled from this image. Imagine our soft and cheerful sea glass ink letterpress printed on one of our tree-free 100% cotton invitation envelopes greeting your guests {how about a little something like this}. When they open the envelope, an invitation printed in gold foil on a thick duplexed card in napa stock is revealed. One that has been draped in the most luxurious bisque double-faced satin ribbon. It’s all in the details!

There is such a wonderful sense of drama to this photograph of actress Naomi Watts for Vogue Australia. The colors are rich and yet there is a softness to them that creates a harmonious palette. And, of course the bed of flowers has us thinking of hydrangea season and our ever-popular Hydrangea letterpress wedding invitation suite. Our designers thought that the layers and layers of gorgeous neutrals would put a modern twist on a classic beauty. Imagine a fresh white letterpress paper with our elegant hydrangea motif and traditional font printed in our lovely thistle ink, edged in our warm charcoal gray, then wrapped in a shimmery cameo pocket folder and finished with a deep mink-colored double-faced satin ribbon. The layers will unfold and reveal your wedding details just as  your guests’ anticipation of your big day builds!

Get the Look – Brilliant Blues

We love sharing our favorite color palettes and invitation embellishments through our “Get the Look” posts! This stunning image, from a retro-inspired shoot for Glamour UK with Reese Witherspoon, photographed by Simon Emmet, is our latest inspiration. The beautiful blue color palette of pool, wedgewood and french blue, struck us as perfect for a summer wedding! Our team pulled details from our design library of custom elements and put together a dreamy invitation suite featuring the pool and french blue letterpress inks, a backer card in shimmering champagne and topped it off with an elegant envelope liner.

Your color palette is a great jumping off point for your wedding stationery. From there, you can use the expertise of our exclusive retailers along with our Wedding Portfolio and motif catalog to pull together your favorite elements and truly customize your invitation design to create an elegant, preppy, chic and/or rustic wedding suite!
