Client Customization – Larkspur with an Irish Twist

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, we are posting one of our favorite and most creative customizations of our Larkspur design. Inspired by the Larkspur invitation and building on the fact that any of our suites can be customized, Antoinette at PAPERISTA helped Katy and Colin design the perfect save the date for their upcoming wedding.

The change in the color palette to leaf and garden green immediately speaks to the couple’s Irish heritage, but the fine details are what make this save the date truly personal. The pattern on the first panel of this trifold save the date was updated with a Celtic knot in place of the olive green button detail in the original. Perfectly placed motifs like the shamrock on the first and second panels as well as the satin gold foil claddagh on the second panel and the row of Celtic knots on the last panel make this piece sweetly unique. Antoinette, Katy and Colin really took the ability to customize to the next level! Take a peek at the gorgeous results!

Aren’t their customizations just the perfect touch?! We’re working on their invitation suite right now too — it’s right in line with this classically beautiful and personal piece. We will be sure to share it with you once they’re printed and mailed!

Invitation of the Week: Citron

Spring has finally hit everywhere around the country and this week we’re highlighting an invitation from our Dauphine Press custom collection that is the embodiment of spring itself: Citron.

This award-winning design was created by Katrina McHugh and prints in three colors: buttercup, leaf and espresso. On press, we capture a very high level of detail in the lemon branch image which derives from a vintage engraving. The Citron invitation won an International Design Award from How Magazine in 2009.

The Citron invitation sprung from a project we did for the esteemed Paula LeDuc catering in Emeryville, California. Paula wanted a bonbon box as a takeaway for their tastings and events. The company’s identity and stationery was restrained and classic, they had never before used a graphic image on any branded materials. But the lyrical lemon branch image resonated with Paula, and we designed the bonbon box that first introduced the image to their clients. We later developed an invitation for an event Paula le Duc held at Beaulieu Garden which evolved into our Citron wedding invitation.

Inspiration comes from so many unexpected places! We hope your spring brings new inspired ideas to your world.
