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.

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.

Given all of the requests we received lately for invitations with a mid-century modern theme, the inspiration board details a grand party with vintage flair!

Trend Alert – Chevron Pattern

Chevron stripes have been around for a long time – dating all the way back to Greek pottery and as current as the mod fashions of the 70s – but it seems that the current resurgence is making a big splash in every aspect of life: fashion, interior design and stationery! The geometric boldness is perfectly suited to make a statement, like this skirt from the spring Anthropolgie collection.

A bit like these striking images from the Anthropologie catalog, our Carneros design blends a graphic chevron pattern with a botanical wreath monogram detail on this letterpress wedding invitation suite, finding the perfect balance between modern and traditional.

Trend Alert – Rose Gold

Our design team is always keeping their eyes out for new inspiration and trends. As you know, we often blog about our inspiration, but today we’re starting something new {drum roll please} – “Trend Alerts.” With this latest post, we plan to share fresh, emerging trends that we look forward to translating into stationery design!

The first trend our team has their eyes on is the timeless metallic, rose gold. Rose gold is a soft, neutral metallic, which can be paired with other metallics and/or just about any other color. It is sweet and romantic, making it perfect for spring and summer weddings.
