Client Customization – Letterpress Baby Announcement

The vintage hot air balloon theme is so sweet for baby announcements and nurseries. This fun and uplifting symbol and the “anything-is-possible” vibe surrounding a new arrival is a perfect fit in our book. We had a ton of fun working with the auntie-to-be on this design that features a gender neutral color palette of celadon, pool and sunshine letterpress inks for the balloon details and on the playful stripe on the center panel (which later acted as a frame for a photo of the new arrival).

Client Customization – Letterpress Beach Wedding Invitation

This beach wedding invitation makes a bold statement with a large motif printed behind classic fonts. The graphics are large, but do not take over the entire suite since they are printed in our soft powder blue letterpress ink. Paired with our taupe letterpress ink for the type, we think this softer version of traditional black or silver really adds to the beachy vibe of this suite.

CC-MACKECHNIE

Sent to us by our exclusive retailer Lettres, this design is one that is easily customized. If you’re having a garden wedding or getting married under an oak tree, we can easily swap out the beach motifs for florals or a gorgeous oak and acorn. We would love to work with you, so contact us, to find your signature style.

Client Customization – Unique Wedding Invitation

Our Custom Wedding Portfolio is designed so that brides and grooms can select one of our existing invitations as-is, you can use an existing design as a jumping off point and personalize it for your event — or, you can use the individual design library elements to create our own unique design from the ground up. This last option is exactly what this couple, sent our way by exclusive retailer By Invitation Only in Oklahoma, chose for their wedding invitation. These truly custom designs are always exciting for us because it really shows the personality of the couple and is truly unique to them.

CC-WEIR

This one-of-a-kind design is printed on our Savoy Natural White, 236# letterpress stock in a combination of a Blind Hit floral, motifs in a mix of Celadon letterpress and Honeydew foil and finished with Satin Gold Foil type.

For emellishments, the couple added a soft finish to the card with elegant rounded corners on all pieces, oh-so-pretty Cameo colored envelopes and an Envelopments Raw Silk White Trellis envelope liner for a wow-factor when the envelope is opened.

This couple had their dream invitation realized by choosing their favorite elements. We’re here to help if you want to create your very own design!

Designer’s Desktop {Monterey Baby Announcement}

We designed our Custom Wedding Portfolio II so that brides and grooms could find a ton of great inspiration for their wedding stationery and also easily bring to life the wedding invitation design they had been dreaming up. A bonus to creating a process so flexible and full of options was that the design elements could easily translate to special events beyond weddings.

Today in our Designer’s Desktop series we share a sweet baby announcement with you that was inspired by our Monterey wedding invitation suite.

The signature sunburst from the Monterey wedding invitation is placed at the top of this announcement and within it is the first initial of this sweet baby girl. Beneath the sunburst is her birth name in a graceful script. This letterpress printed design includes two playful ink colors – lemon and rose.

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.
