Client Customization – Traditional With A Pop Of Color

As graphic designers we are often inspired by all creative avenues. We love when print design crosses paths with fashion or home decor. When our exclusive retailer Only The Best approached us with this design, we could not wait to see it in print. The overall textile-like pattern {printed in our varnish ink under charcoal letterpress} added to the accessory card of our Carneros invitation design adds even more visual interest to the overall design and really highlights the letterpress printing.

Framing the cards in a raspberry edge painting adds a delightful pop of color that we also love seeing in fashion and home decor. Do you have a favorite fashion or home decor statement you love to make? If so, tell us about it! We love the challenge of incorporating the personal style of all of our couples into their custom design.

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!

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!

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!

Client Customization – Classic Letterpress Wedding Invitation

This letterpress wedding invitation design is one we hold close to our hearts {and our history}. At the start of Dauphine Press, one of our favorite layouts was a classic combination of an all-caps serif font paired with a restrained script in a contrasting color. Topping that layout was a personal touch – the lighthouse this couple used – to personalize the design for the couple and their wedding location. We love this tried-and-true combination that feels fresh and traditional at the same time. Easily customized with your own motif or monogram at the top of the card, we are truly font of this evergreen formula.

Client Customization – Modern Monogram

What better way to kick off your new union than with a New Years Eve wedding!? We love that this couple selected this special date and the details they chose to adorn their wedding invitation. We all know that the invitation sets the tone for your guests and gives them a taste of what to expect on your wedding day.

This couple chose a very playful designs for their save the date card with effervescent bubbles framing the wedding day details. When it came to the wedding invitation, they used the bubbles sparingly on the accessory cards and left the main invitation to make a classic statement. An oversized monogram in platinum foil tops the horizontal oriented card. Finishing touches include a platinum gilded edge on the double-thick stock and a platinum envelope liner.
