An updated classic is always a “win” in our book. This letterpress wedding invitation exhibits an overall harmonious balance with a classic botanical framing a monogram created from a traditional serif font. The one-color design keeps it traditional, but with that single color being a vibrant blue and the absence of a script on the long, thin card; this wedding invitation is the perfect expression of a modern couple.
Where do you stand? Are you classic, modern or a mix of both? Let us or any of our exclusive retailers help you find your perfect balance and a beautiful invitation for your wedding day!

We’re excited to share the third brand new wedding invitation suite that we recently added to our Custom Wedding Portfolio II – Stone Harbor! For those of you that love details, this suite is the perfect starting point. It has layers of elements that can easily be swapped out for your favorite details to create a brand new look.
Our versatile Stone Harbor wedding invitation suite is all about texture. From the subtle blind chevron pattern printed behind the navy letterpress text, to the silver metallic rope pattern on the colored paper bellyband and the repeating nautical knot pattern on the decorative envelope liner, this suite has it all! We’ve chosen motifs and a color palette with a nautical feel, but this sophisticated suite could easily be customized with a monogram, palm motif and tropical color palette for an island affair.

Using our Fairfield invitation pattern as their inspiration, the couple behind today’s Client Customization created a design that is the epitome of “traditional with a twist”. Our Fairfield pattern is set as a foil border detail, framing a classic save the date design with the client-created monogram and script font. The “twist” this couple designed – along with their local Dauphine Press retailer Carolyn at The Write Touch in Jacksonville, Florida – is a layer of pale pink letterpress ink (our shell) under the gold foil border. We love the dimension the printed solid creates under the foil stamped border!
What is the “twist” you’re looking to add to your wedding and invitation design? Bring your inspiration to a Dauphine Press retailer and work with our team to create your custom stationery that is sure to be just as gorgeous as this foiled beauty!

We have SUCH a treat for you today! This perfectly peach and papaya variation of our letterpress Carmen wedding invitation summoned Jillian & Vander’s wedding guests to quite a sweet event! 100 Layer Cake said it best in their post: Every little detail is impeccable, but it feels relaxed and unfussy at the same time. We couldn’t agree more!
The bride and groom worked with our exclusive retailer, Union Street Papery, and customized Carmen to perfectly suit their event. The design is warm and subtle; strong and sophisticated. The unexpected choice of typefaces set the mood with flair, while the layers of elegant patterns, used in different ways on the various cards in the suite, bring it all together. Bundled in an elegant pocket and wrapped with a stunning letterpress-printed belly band with their custom monogram was sure to get their guests excited to share the day with them.
We say it time and time again, but seeing everything together on the wedding day is what we love most about what we do. Seeing that the custom monogram we designed for them was incorporated into the design of the wedding cake makes our day!

This past winter we were thrilled to work with the editorial team at BRIDES magazine! We created a fresh customization of our Yountville design for their Red & Orange “Pick Your Palette” feature in the June/July 2014 issue. The new variation of this crisp, modern design features our cantaloupe letterpress ink for the large monogram, which is complemented by the custom red ink used for the wording and vibrant edge painting. The bright poppy orange envelope with custom red return address and monogram is the perfect finishing touch!
