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!

Suite Spotlight – Citron Letterpress Wedding Invitation

Our Citron invitation suite, featuring a vivid lemon branch, spritzed with stripes and a delicate filigree, is a refreshing choice for summery celebrations. This jaw dropping design is fun and cheerful and exhibits the ideal way to use three different letterpress inks the buttercup yellow and leaf green inks are used as fills behind the vintage botanical printed in espresso. The crowning detail is the mix of layered fonts three of them, to be exact, which are artfully placed on the invitation and accessory cards. But, the beauty of this suite doesn’t stop here! Beyond the invitation card and other letterpress printed cards, the ironwork-inspired envelope liner and bold yellow envelopes make this suite complete.

Client Customization – Yountville Bat Mitzvah Invitation

When we set out to build our Custom Wedding Portfolio, we created it in a way that allowed for all of the designs to be customized to suit any type of event – holiday, baby announcements, showers, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs and even personal stationery. Using our gallery of designs as the inspiration and our design library full of custom elements, each design detail can be personalized to create any stationery from the ground up. With this in mind, we have another fantastic non-wedding Client Customization to share with you today.

A fun take on our Yountville suite, today’s design came to us from our exclusive retailer RSVP in Roslyn, New York. Their client was inspired by the large monogram featured on our Yountville invitation, but wanted to personalize it a step further. They chose our large square, Royal size card and our design team adjusted the design to make the most of the space, while still allowing it to make the same bold statement. Keeping with the allover modern feel of this suite, the client chose a subtle color palette. The sweet, wisteria touches perfectly grace the monogram, the painted edges on the invitation card and the delicate pattern of our Dauphine Press exclusive Solage envelope liner.

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!
