Client Customization – Letterpress Destination Wedding Invitation

We love designing invitations for destination weddings! What a treat for a couple and their guests to have the opportunity to celebrate the new union over an extended week or weekend. It is such a great way to make your wedding memorable.

CC-MUNOZ

This playful design, from our retailer Ellis Hill, emphasizes the travel aspect and excitement surrounding this Mexico wedding. Including the phrase “pack your bags” in a bold, fun font on the back side of the invitation is sure to have your friends and family booking their accommodations shortly after opening this invitation. The bold pops of papaya and twilight letterpress inks on the map and type put everything into perspective and set the tone for this extraordinary event!

Whether you’re getting married near or far, we would love to help you design a custom wedding suite that will have your guests excited to attend. Email us or one of our exclusive retailers to start the design process today!

Client Customization – Balancing Bold + Subtle On A Wedding Suite

Creating an elegant design is as easy as finding the perfect balance of subtle and bold. We love the look on this custom design from our exclusive retailer Katie & Co. Taking the traditional monogram and wreath frame and increasing the size is a bold move. But, keeping things light with our varnish ink balances this design out absolutely perfectly!

CC-AUSBURN

We love the modern touch of the varnish chevron pattern behind the letterpress ink on the response card as well. Weddings combine two individuals, two families, two lifestyles that are often different, but complementary. That is what we love about this design – the balance mirrors a perfect union!

Client Customization – Lovely Lace + Letterpress

We love how this customization really shows off the true beauty of letterpress. The deep impression on the cotton letterpress paper displays the tiny details in the fine lace patterned border beautifully. The second effect the deep impression of the border has on this design is the negative space and how it really pops! The perfect platform for the traditional wedding invitation wording!

CC-ABBAS

We created this design with our exclusive retailer Papery & Cakery that displays a classic combination of metal letterpress ink and a blind hit on our 236# Savoy brilliant white paper stock. The simple monogram at the top really is the “icing on the cake” and is a great way to personalize this design.

Knowing the tricks of the trade is was we love about working with our long-time retailers like Niki at Papery & Cakery. It’s a delight to not only create a beautiful design for every couple we work with, but also make the most of the luxe print techniques we all love so much!

Real Dauphine Press Wedding – Carie Ann & Bryan’s Romantic Wedding Day

We’re about to share a bundle of gorgeous wedding photos with you, but the one thing that stands out the most to us? The smiles! That is really what the day is all about! So, beyond the wedding eye candy, we love seeing the pure joy on the faces of each bride and groom we are lucky to create wedding invitations for!

The bride, Carie Ann, described her wedding to her groom, Bryan, as featuring a “color palette of blue, peach and white, with an emphasis on classic, traditional romance, with a mix of some southern flair.” Working alongside some amazing wedding vendors, this couple certainly accomplished that vision! Take a look:

For the wedding invitation, the couple worked with Dauphine Press Exclusive Retailer The Pleasure of Your Company and selected our Occidental letterpress suite. Our Occidental wedding invitation is designed with a subtle pattern in the background printed in our parchment letterpress ink. Atop this lace-like pattern, is a delicate script font printed in twilight blue ink. These two main elements combine to create an updated classic featuring a traditional monogram.

As a very special touch, make sure you don’t miss all of the places this couple incorporated the monogram from their wedding invitation. What an elegant way to make the day unique and memorable!

It’s no surprise that Carie Ann and Bryan’s wedding was featured on the Baltimore Bride blog. Take a peek at their post as they have a ton of fun details about this gorgeous day.
