Designer’s Inspiration {week one hundred nine}

7.10-DI-WEEK-111

We’re obsessed with this visual! Graphic chalkboard typography never gets old. The control and creativity of the artist is simply perfection! The mix of fonts has us dreaming of a type inspired wedding invitation – our Auburn and Stinson suites are perfect examples of type as the focal point.

Real Dauphine Press Wedding – Rachel & Mike’s Napa Valley Destination Wedding

You  may be able to guess from the geographical names of many of our Custom Wedding Portfolio II wedding invitation suites that all of us at Dauphine Press are fans of the Napa Valley Wine Country. We’re excited to share Rachel and Mike’s Napa Valley destination wedding with you today! Every detail and element they put together for their wedding day resulted in pure perfection! Take a look for yourself!

Rachel and Mike worked with our exclusive retailer The Stationery Station and selected our Volusia letterpress wedding invitation suite for their wedding day. The unexpected horizontal card shape printed with a mix of a boldface type along with touches of a classic script font, this design effortlessly exudes casual elegance – perfect for a destination wedding in Napa Valley. The couple chose to add a personal touch with a wine glass motif on each piece and a bright color palette of coral and grey.

Imagine the surprise and delight of their guests when their color palette and destination theme all came together on their wedding day! With the vibrant summery colors sprinkled throughout and the wine country details, this was surely a day to remember!

Client Customization – Letterpress Beach Wedding Invitation

This Palm Beach Monogram customization is the perfect example of how to play with two key design elements – scale and layout. We love the eye-catching results that can be achieved when it’s done right! Haley and Ryan worked with Lindsey at Mrs. Post Fine Stationery, one of our exclusive retailers in Memphis, on this custom design. Their choice of a large palm tree off to one side and the slanted text (a nod to our Fairfield invitation) make for a stunning impression for their guests when they open this delightful invitation and prepare for what is sure to be a memorable day!

Suite Spotlight – Lace Letterpress Invitation Suite

In wedding stationery design, we love when two unique elements collide to create something incredible. It’s a bit like a marriage, isn’t it?! Our Lacie letterpress invitation does exactly that with an elegant balance of vintage and modern design elements. The delicate, antique lace pattern curving across the top of each card in a bold, vivid, orchid letterpress ink creates a striking visual for your guests. We see this perfect balance again with the sleek and modern typeface letterpress printed in a warm charcoal gray ink on a soft natural white cotton stock. The subtle touch of the warm tones in the paper and ink help bridge the vintage and modern elements.

The inspiration board explores this beautiful balance and really shows off the orchid and pool color palette.
