Dauphine Press at NSS 2012, Part Two

Dauphine Press Letterpress Foil National Stationery Show Edge Paint

As we mentioned last week, our team always has a blast preparing for the National Stationery Show each year and creating a new booth design. The best part of it all is catching up with friends old and new. It is the one time of year that we get to visit with so many of our retailers at once. They mean so much to us so it is a very special time! {To see a complete listing of our exclusive retailers, visit the Locate a Retailer section of our website.}

Beyond our retailers, we also love to catch up with our friends in the industry who share the best of stationery with you every day. Below are more details, in their words, on our new offering we previewed at NSS 2012 and are launching on our website and with our retailers in mid-July.

We always love running into Nole of Oh So Beautiful Paper and were delighted to be part of her extensive NSS recap. Also, did you see her article on NSS booth design? It really resonated with us!

It is always delightful to run into long-time friend of Dauphine Press, Alyson Kuhn of Felt & Wire. See her NSS recap as well as a unique view of Dauphine Press and our design team through Alyson’s latest interview with owner Glenn Schuster and art director Katrina McHugh.

We love this unique view from retailer Paper and Home in Las Vegas’ perspective on the show.

Perfectly put paper goodness from Emily at Southern Weddings. Don’t miss her recent Teal Party inspiration board with an appearance by one of our favorite destination wedding suites, Pacifica.

We will be back soon with details on each new design and even more photos!

Suite Spotlight – Pacifica Letterpress Wedding Invitation

Even though the calendar shows that summer is approaching, the weather here in Northern California doesn’t feel anywhere close! To help remind us that it is already June and that blue skies are soon to return and stick around for a while, we chose our Pacifica design for the latest in our Sneak Peek series.

The vintage inspired, breezy and warm inspiration board turned in to a letterpress wedding suite that would be ideal for a Cuban or Hawaiian event, but could also be customized for any vintage yet contemporary venue with an island feel.

One of our favorite pieces of inspiration was the Frings Brothers logo with its clean and sophisticated vintage-cigar-box style. We found a font designed by John Downer that was a perfect compliment to the design we were looking to create.

The suite was printed on our brilliant white double-thick premium letterpress paper with our seafoam and tobacco inks on the front and a full bleed weaved grass mat pattern on the back in buttercream ink as the finishing touch.
