Client Customization – Yountville Bat Mitzvah Invitation

When we set out to build our Custom Wedding Portfolio, we created it in a way that allowed for all of the designs to be customized to suit any type of event – holiday, baby announcements, showers, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs and even personal stationery. Using our gallery of designs as the inspiration and our design library full of custom elements, each design detail can be personalized to create any stationery from the ground up. With this in mind, we have another fantastic non-wedding Client Customization to share with you today.

A fun take on our Yountville suite, today’s design came to us from our exclusive retailer RSVP in Roslyn, New York. Their client was inspired by the large monogram featured on our Yountville invitation, but wanted to personalize it a step further. They chose our large square, Royal size card and our design team adjusted the design to make the most of the space, while still allowing it to make the same bold statement. Keeping with the allover modern feel of this suite, the client chose a subtle color palette. The sweet, wisteria touches perfectly grace the monogram, the painted edges on the invitation card and the delicate pattern of our Dauphine Press exclusive Solage envelope liner.

Suite Spotlight – Presidio Letterpress Wedding Invitation

We are thrilled to share with you our latest Suite Spotlight! Our Presidio suite is one we have kept under wraps for a few months now and we are delighted that it is finally making its debut this week here on our blog, on our website and in Martha Stewart Weddings magazine. We think you will find it perfectly on trend and we hope that it fulfills your needs for another stunning take on an Art Deco-inspired event.

Dauphine Press Presidio Letterpress Wedding Invitation featured in Martha Stewart Weddings

This sophisticated letterpress wedding invitation suite was created for a modern wedding, featuring bold palm graphics and layers of geometric patterns. For the couple that values high design, this collection would be suitable for any extraordinary event in an endless number of color combinations and print techniques. Presidio was originally designed in jade {a custom color!} and sea glass letterpress inks with a splash of saffron gold. We are looking forward to its future customizations, as we are sure we will soon see requests for this suite in brilliant foils mixed with an array of letterpress inks. A few we’re dying to print – rose gold foil with blush and champagne inks, gold foil printed on an elegant duplexed black card or in combination with deep teal ink!

Suite Spotlight – Vignette Letterpress Invitation

The next design in our Suite Spotlight series is the Vignette collection from our original Custom Wedding Portfolio. Over time, this popular, evergreen suite has seen many variations and thus showcases the best of our custom design process.

Originally designed for Martha Stewart Weddings magazine as a wedding suite, this “vintage with a modern twist” letterpress printed card is an architecturally-inspired design that blends classic proportions with modern minimalism. The variation we are showcasing today was recently added to our website’s Custom Social Stationery gallery. Customized as a social invitation for a winemaker’s dinner party, it features our black and saffron letterpress inks and a black linen envelope liner.

Real Dauphine Press Wedding – Adrianne & Jared

Adrianne & Jared are the ideal Dauphine Press couple! They found us through exclusive Dauphine Press retailer Pebble & Peony in Houston, Texas and created their wedding stationery suite based on our Carneros design. Inspired by the original, but wanting to make it their own, they selected a bright color palette of tangelo and french blue letterpress inks. They also modified the design with the monogram and text centered on the main invitation, which made for a more classic layout. Their version of the monogram incorporates a script font and creates the perfect balance of traditional with their playful personalities when paired with the bold chevron pattern on the envelope liner and response card.

With Alexis’ help at Pebble & Peony, the couple took advantage of our design services and had their custom monogram incorporated onto additional details, such as their charming treat packaging. We offer this to all of our clients. When we create something custom for you, it’s yours to use!

We love seeing everything come together on the big day. Adrianne & Jared were no different — we loved playing a role in their special day. If you would like to see more images from Adrianne & Jared’s wedding, you can see the original post and more images on the Style Me Pretty blog. Don’t forget to read the bride’s recap of the day, you wouldn’t want to miss out on the goosebump-inducing details, such as her account of the day being “even more special and wonderful in real life than in daydreams.”  What an amazing couple!
