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!

Client Customization – Sweet Letterpress First Birthday Invitation

We have a sweet customization for you today! We love to see our wedding invitation designs transformed into invitations for all kinds of events. With just a few easy changes, our Camille wedding suite was transformed into a delightfully elegant first birthday invitation.

CC-CAMILLE

Shifting the color palette to a range of peaches and oranges with traditional black wording is the first step in transforming this design. Then, swapping out the patterns for graphic florals result in a depth of pattern and color and adds interest. To add a touch of surprise, a second graphic floral pattern in a deeper orange was added to the back of the invitation. Finishing touches include the painted edges, matching envelope liner and striking cartouche on the return address.

We share all of these great designs to show you how easy it will be to customize your very own invitations. Plus, we have a wonderful group of retailers to help you create the perfect stationery for your event!
