Client Customization – Lovely Lavender Letterpress Invitation

We love the way the subtle lavender touches add dimension to this Vreeland wedding suite customization. This invitation utilizes, what we call in letterpress printing, a “fill.” Looking at the etched floral motif, you can see that there is a solid layer of lavender ink printed beneath it, which gives it a hint of color and differentiates it from the blind printed lattice in the background.

Starting with that lovely touch on the main invitation card, this suite includes many other pretty layers that will be sure to have guests excited for the big day. The neutral color palette, elegant shimmery pocket folder, the different uses of the signature etched floral motif and the luxe belly band wrap up the entire invitation into one pretty package.


We would love to help you design your own pretty package for your wedding invitations. Contact us or get in touch with your local Dauphine Press exclusive retailer to gather inspiration and ideas from our Custom Wedding Portfolio.


A.M. Inspiration {hearts and hides letterpress invitation}

This week we’re sharing two unique pieces of stationery. With a 50th wedding anniversary save the date on Wednesday and now today, inspiration comes from another one of the children’s birthday invitations we’ve designed and printed. Our first love is weddings, but weddings lead to things like wedding anniversaries and birthday parties for the littlest members of your family. We want to be there for all of it and help you express yourself through graphic design, paper and stationery!

When my daughter expressed that she really wanted to incorporate touches of animal prints in her party decor and party invitation, I came up with a great solution. Feeling that animal prints might be a little too grown up for a 7-year-old, I decided to create a pattern myself. With the custom pattern, I used hearts to form the pattern and make it a bit more childlike. At the time, she was obsessed with shades of purple, so we incorporated this color palette and used fun san serif fonts and a frame to complete the look!
