Client Customization – Presidio Inspired Letterpress Save the Date Card

This charming save the date card is one of our favorite custom designs. The bride and groom went through every detail in our Custom Wedding Portfolio II and chose their favorite design elements, letterpress ink colors and format to create their very own version of our trifold save the date card.

Heavily inspired by our Presidio wedding invitation suite, incorporating multiple design elements as well as the letterpress ink color palette, the final design is one that will have guests thrilled to be invited to this destination wedding.  The custom teal, inviting sea glass green and golden saffron letterpress inks are perfectly layered to show off the destination map, handsome frames and graphic center panel that will ultimately display the couple’s engagement photo.

It doesn’t get any more personal than this! And the best part? All of this custom design is included with your order, at no additional cost, when you design your wedding invitation suite through one of our exclusive retailers.

5.29-AM-INSPIRATION

We all have our favorite creative times during the day, and for me, it’s early in the morning while most of the world – well, mostly my children – remain quiet. With our “A.M. Inspiration” series, I post images of what currently has me inspired, the exciting new ideas I am dreaming up on my quiet mornings and share my thoughts on how to translate each piece of inspiration into stationery design and wedding invitations.

This gorgeous venue in Los Angeles is the epitome of a blank space with endless options! A perfect combination for a designer! It can be dressed up or dressed down, converted for a rustic affair or a trendy soiree, but will always end up looking super chic.

The same combination is perfect for stationery design! I’m loving the texture of the walls and the brilliant white paint. They remind me of our Brilliant White cotton letterpress papers just before the press hits it and the letterpress printing is forever impressed into the paper.

The rush of designing wedding stationery {and an event such as a wedding, as I’m sure you’re finding out during all of your planning!} is always heightened when you see your design come to life. For us, it is holding that first printed invitation in your hand, taking a design from the digital world to the real world!

Suite Spotlight – Princeton Foil Stamped Wedding Invitation

We love every one of our invitation designs equally, but with this round of new wedding invitation samples for our Custom Wedding Portfolio II we may have played favorites … we love the technique of using two layers of foil stamping on our last new design, Princeton. We hope you love it as much as we do!

An epic day deserves an equally glorious and captivating invitation. The Princeton wedding invitation suite is your perfect match with an abundance of sweet romance and the most opulent elements. Printed in both pearl and silver foil on a sweet die-cut card and paired with shimmery metallic envelope liner and response envelope, this suite is like a vintage piece of jewelry saved for the most extraordinary of events.

We created our Custom Wedding Portfolio knowing that every couple we work with would like the opportunity to customize their wedding stationery. We love creating inspiration, like the Princeton wedding invitation suite, to show you how you can dream big like two layers of foil stamping and a diecut shape! Pairing your ideas with the elements in our Custom Wedding Portfolio, you’re sure to end up with a design that is unique to you and your wedding day. Best of all, it is also designed to be fun! We encourage you to scour our website {don’t forget to check out our Search By Style feature} and meet with the experts at your local Dauphine Press retailer to get their guidance and input.

Designer’s Inspiration {week one hundred six}

Not only are these marbled wallpaper designs stunning with the contrast of black, white and gold, but they are custom and handmade! Like letterpress, we love when you can see the artist’s hand in an original piece of artwork … especially one that you can have the pleasure of enjoying every day like wallpaper and stationery.

Hope you have an inspiring weekend!
