Designer’s Inspiration {week forty-eight}

Dauphine Press Designer's Inspiration

We’re celebrating April showers with this image of sweet floral patterned umbrellas. We love the contrast of the fine florals against the weathered wall, but mostly, all of these patterns have us dreaming of ways to incorporate them {and possibly many of them!} into wedding stationery!

Hope you have an inspiring weekend!

Designer’s Inspiration {week thirty-seven}

Dauphine Press Designer Inspiration-WEEK-37

Of course this image had us thinking of letterpress! The pattern that is etched into the snow {by a single man, on foot!} would make a beautiful blind hit of letterpress on a cotton paper! This man-made pattern creates an even more picturesque snow landscape. What a beautiful way to celebrate the season.

Hope you have an inspiring weekend!

Suite Spotlight – Occidental Letterpress Wedding Invitation

We have another Suite Spotlight and beautifulĀ inspirationĀ board to share! Regal and formal, our Occidental design highlights the rich luxury of our cotton papers by incorporating a whisper of a background motif that, when letterpress printed, makes this design feel wonderfully tactile. Paired perfectly with a stately monogram and delicate script, the lace-like paper appears sophisticated, soft and bridal.

Suite Spotlight – Kensington Foil + Letterpress Wedding Invitation

Our Kensington suite is a star around here, not just because of the delicate foil stamped border in reflective gold foil, but it is the perfect marriage of letterpress and foil on one piece. This beautiful balance of letterpress and foil on a single card creates a gorgeous impression from a distance, but also begs you to hold it in your hand and run your fingers over the deep letterpress and shift the card to catch the light on the foil.

Inspired by the styles of the 30s and 40s, this suite sets the tone for an affair that is stylish and classic with its fonts and motifs in a mix of bright fuchsia letterpress ink next to the reflective gold foil. Each piece incorporates a different twist on the delicate foil stamped border and is also edged in our fuchsia edge painting, which perfectly frames and finishes each card.

And the inspiration board … I have no words beyond “it takes my breath away!” Gorgeous! Our design team really outdid themselves with this one!

The Kensington Suite

The strength of this design carries it through all of the different color combinations we’ve printed it in. Some of our favorites are satin silver foil and pool letterpress and edging inks, traditional black letterpress with gold foil and even allover copper foil. You really can’t miss with this design. What do you think? What letterpress, edging and foil combination would you like to see this printed in? Take a peek at our custom design elements to see all of your options.
