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!

Today’s client customization is simply stunning! Lauren and Alexander worked with our retailer Elizabeth Grace to create their version of our Larkspur wedding invitation suite. Layering the suite with two different colors of foil (pearl and a custom rose gold!) and traditional black letterpress resulted in a lovely traditional invitation for this couple. Using the pearl foil for all of the patterns creates a beautiful backdrop for the rose gold foil frames and black letterpress printed wording. We’re in love with the results!
Creating a custom design can be as simple as changing the color palette to your chosen wedding colors. Want to see one of our classic designs in your palette? Contact your local Dauphine Press retailer to transform your favorite design into your custom invitation.

We are sharing a very special Suite Spotlight with you today. This sweet set of baby stationery was created for a family we have had the pleasure of working with for many years – from bridal showers, wedding invitations, personal stationery and now, baby announcements. As usual, the client worked with our design team and our Custom Wedding Portfolio II program and selected all of their favorite elements to create a perfectly custom stationery suite.
The final suite included baby shower invitations, thank you notes and the baby announcement all featuring sketches of vintage hot air balloons. We love how the color palette varied for each piece, but still coordinated perfectly to tell the story. For the shower pieces, the color palette was chosen with mom in mind too and featured both pink and blue along with a gorgeous neutral gray. For the thank you notes and announcement, a softer palette was chosen since baby was the focus. The mix of fonts coordinated perfectly with the vintage theme and were used to highlight the most important details.
Are you expecting a new little bundle this year? We would love the opportunity to create custom stationery for you and your little one. Visit any of our retailers to get started on your very own custom design.
‘Tis the season for holiday cheer and warm wishes for the new year! We are celebrating the beauty of the season with this letterpress design showcasing delicate pine boughs and a traditional color palette.
All of us at Dauphine Press wish you the happiest of holidays!

With its vintage, tile-inspired pattern and dazzling foil frame, our Larkspur suite is one of our most popular designs. We have printed quite a few variations of this suite, where the pattern was switched out for another or the size and shape of the invitation was changed, but today we would like to share Maureen and Michael’s gorgeous client customization. Loving the original design of the suite, the couple only needed to change the color palette to a two color letterpress design in order to achieve their wedding stationery vision. The warm salmon and charcoal hues are both romantic and eye catching.
