Client Customization – Arbogast (Larkspur)

With its vintage, tile-inspired pattern and dazzling foil frame, our Larkspur suite is one of our most popular designs. We have printed quite a few variations of this suite, where the pattern was switched out for another or the size and shape of the invitation was changed, but today we would like to share Maureen and Michael’s gorgeous client customization. Loving the original design of the suite, the couple only needed to change the color palette to a two color letterpress design in order to achieve their wedding stationery vision. The warm salmon and charcoal hues are both romantic and eye catching.

Client Customization – Perot {World Traveler, Social}

Our custom stationery is not only meant for brides and grooms-to-be. This client customization features a slight variation of our World Traveler wedding stationery suite. We love that Sarah and Ross chose such a fitting invitation for The Farnborough Air Show by showcasing a background map and airplane motif for their international event. The contrasting letterpress printed ink colors, metal against robin’s egg, really allow for the colors to pop.

Fonts can leave a lasting impression when it comes to wedding stationery. We love playing around with a mixture of different fonts and especially love seeing the countless combinations on all of our stationery!  Whether you are using all block fonts, all script, or a combination of both, fonts are a great way to set the tone for your big day. Since the list of fonts goes on and on, we would like to introduce to you today some of our favorite script fonts.

 

Dauphine Press Loves - Fonts

{Kendra} Kendra loves how the varying thick and thin lines of Piel Script radiate elegance and really show the best of letterpress printing.

{Kristie} Carolyna Pro is a whimsical, calligraphic script that’s both fun and classy, which is why Kristie is always delighted when she sees this font in stationery design!

{Abbey} Abbey adores the beautiful ornaments and delicate nature of Eloquence font. Combine this script with other serif or san serif fonts for a refined, polished look.

{Carissa} Belluccia Pro is Carissa’s favorite script font with its abundance of glyph options and classic, handwritten feel.
