Dauphine Press-Designer's Inspiration

Working in the wedding industry, there is a lot of swooning happening day after day, but these images really have us feeling a little lightheaded with so many gorgeous elements all in one place! The pink + green create a gorgeous spring-like color palette and the addition of the gold sparkle is our idea of perfection! (images)

Hope you have an inspiring weekend!

Real Dauphine Press Wedding – Jillian & Vander

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!

Get the Look – Pretty in Pink

The lovely Natalie Portman graced the Sofia Coppola directed ad (found here) for Miss Dior perfume earlier this year. We absolutely love this look and feel it is the ideal inspiration for the sophisticated bride who loves a soft and feminine feel. The wall of roses offers an array of pinks that make a compelling color palette with varied shades and hues. Nothing matches exactly, which is what really appeals to us — we love to layer and mix colors, patterns and fonts to create a truly unique design.

Our design team envisioned our petal pink and ice plant green letterpress inks printed on our premium cotton stock. With the thick stock edged in bold fuchsia and the envelope lined in a shimmering pyrite, this customization is a great example of how our custom design process can work for any look. All you have to do is pick your favorite design from our collection and apply these details and, voilà! — your ideal custom suite is created!

In our regular Get the Look series from the Dauphine Press design department, we share some of our favorite hot new style finds and make suggestions for how you can translate the same look into your wedding stationery using the many custom elements available to you in our design library. Keep in mind that ALL of our stationery suites receive a designer’s touch and every one of our designs is customizable. Pairing the color palette and embellishments above with any of our motifs or fonts allows us to create a stationery suite that is unique to you!


 

Designer’s Inspiration {week nineteen}

This dreamy photograph showcases the extra romantic color palette of pinks and reds. After seeing this image, we’re thinking that our rouge, shell and varnish letterpress inks would be a great color combination for a wedding invitation or valentine card. Wouldn’t you agree?

Hope you have an inspiring weekend!
