Client Customization – A Traditional Take on Stinson

Our Stinson letterpress and foil wedding invitation suite is one of our most talked about designs. Printed on our Elegant duplexed stock in a shimmering pyrite color, we have seen many couples use this very contemporary design as inspiration. Working with their local retailer, Sweet Paper in La Jolla, California, this couple created a brand new look with just a few simple changes. With our Custom Wedding Portfolio, these changes don’t add any cost to the order — in fact, these changes actually make this version an even more budget-friendly choice! Let’s take a look …

The first customization selected was to switch from the metallic paper stock to our cotton letterpress stock. This instantly gives the suite a softer and more traditional feel. Mixing a classic, neutral color palette of black and buttercream letterpress inks with a fun script font, a completely different look is achieved. We especially love how the black ink balances with the white cotton paper and places the bride and groom’s names center stage on the invitation while highlighting the floral motif and simple border details.

As mentioned above, one of the best parts of making changes like these is that there is no additional cost to do so! The custom process built into every design ordered from our Custom Wedding Portfolio also allows flexibility to fit into any budget! So, visit one of our exclusive retailers, like Sweet Paper, to start the design of your custom wedding suite today and take advantage of the free custom design we offer with every order. You can change the color palettetypefacepatterns and motifs on any suite and there is no additional cost!

Dauphine Press in The Wedding Co. Magazine

Thanks to one of our amazing exclusive retailers, William Ashley in Toronto, a fabulous variation of our Glen Ellen design was featured in The Wedding Co. Magazine!


The publication created a fun challenge for a handful of stationers, florists and bakers and the results are stunning! Each “team” was given a few items of inspiration and the results were combined on the pages of the latest issue. With Bohdan from William Ashley leading the way, {just as he will when you visit him to design your wedding invitations}, we created a modified version of our Glen Ellen design to suit the timeless black, white and silver wedding stationery wardrobe.

Loving the classic feel of the Glenn Ellen corner details, Bohdan asked us to incorporate them onto a large, square invitation card in a glimmering silver foil. Paired with traditional fonts in black letterpress and finished with one of our lace-like, patterned paper wraps, a silver paper belly band and luxe double-faced satin ribbon  the look was complete!

This is truly the best part of our job — seeing one of our invitations take on a new direction to become something personal and special for another paper fan! All you have to do to get started on creating your own custom wedding suite is to get in touch with a Dauphine Press exclusive retailer {like William Ashley!} in your area!
