Customize your suite – with foil stamping!

With each new custom design element we feature, I’m tempted to say it’s my favorite and our newly refreshed foil palette is no exception. Every wedding deserves a little sparkle, but for couples who aren’t looking for traditional silver or gold — our new colored foil options are the perfect fit.

When we launched foil stamping in May 2011, we started with a traditional palette. Over the past year+, foil paired with letterpress has become very popular here at Dauphine Press. This year with the addition of our new colored foil options {not to mention how fabulous they are with our new duplexing options!}, we can’t wait to see all of the customizations you come up with. Take a look:

So far we’ve shown you modern colored foil paired with intricate motifs and patterns for the perfect balance of romantic and modern in our Hamilton and Fairfield designs (back patterns pictured above), but are you ready for monochromatic modern elegance?  Keep a lookout for our next blog post too — we’ve saved the most talked about design for last. We know you’ll love it and we can’t wait to see how you customize it for your extraordinary event.

Customize your suite – with our new fonts!

Here at Dauphine Press we get quite enthusiastic about typography. Along with the debut of our new designs, we also wanted to share with you the NEW selection of fonts we recently added to our toolbox! With the addition of the 14 new fonts below, we now have a total of 140 beautiful typefaces that you can choose from.

While some couples select their invitation suite directly from the designs shown in our albums – our fonts, motifs & ink colors can always be swapped at no additional charge. Below are a few of our favorite new fonts. To see the full balance of custom elements you have available to you, click here!

You have already seen a few of these in action in our latest new design posts. Our new Calistoga suite is a beautiful showcase of Piel and Fairfield artfully displays Carolyna. One thing both of these fonts have in common is a hand-lettered feel, which is something we are getting a lot of requests for lately. Calligraphy style fonts are a great way to bring that hand-lettered look in to your suite, without the cost of true hand calligraphy.

Have you picked a favorite yet? If so, any of the design consultants at our exclusive retailers can help you pull your wedding stationery suite together.

Customize your suite – with colored papers & NEW duplexing options!

Along with our recent new design posts we are also sharing with you more details on the new embellishments each new design showcases. Our latest new design, Fairfield, is printed on our new Luxe Board duplexed stock. Today we’re sharing with you everything you need to know about duplexing our colored papers.

All of the colored papers in our Design Library (a total of 37 different colors) are available as duplexed stocks — and in three different thicknesses. Here’s a great visual showing all of the options!

Note that our thickest option, our Luxe Board with the 30pt board mounted between two colored sheets, does show the white board (as seen in the image above) so we do recommend painted edges with our Luxe Board option — unless the white suits your aesthetic. The choice is yours!

As we mentioned last week, colored papers pair perfectly with our new opaque inks and foil {more to come on our expanded foil palette!}. Contact your local Dauphine Press exclusive retailer to see all of these options in person and to start designing your own custom suite!
