We love the way the subtle lavender touches add dimension to this Vreeland wedding suite customization. This invitation utilizes, what we call in letterpress printing, a “fill.” Looking at the etched floral motif, you can see that there is a solid layer of lavender ink printed beneath it, which gives it a hint of color and differentiates it from the blind printed lattice in the background.
Starting with that lovely touch on the main invitation card, this suite includes many other pretty layers that will be sure to have guests excited for the big day. The neutral color palette, elegant shimmery pocket folder, the different uses of the signature etched floral motif and the luxe belly band wrap up the entire invitation into one pretty package.
We would love to help you design your own pretty package for your wedding invitations. Contact us or get in touch with your local Dauphine Press exclusive retailer to gather inspiration and ideas from our Custom Wedding Portfolio.
We love the way the neutral color palette of this customized version of our Auburn wedding invitation suite highlights our favorite details of this design. The graphic elements — a bold font used for the couples names, the large ampersand, a modern take on the wedding date, a simple single-line frame — really stand out and highlight the typography and the charming couple and their upcoming union.
The entire suite is wrapped up perfectly in a shimmering pocket fold. The interior pocket holds all of the important details your guests will need to plan their weekend and help you celebrate this special day!

The letterpress printed wood grain pattern of our large square Beechwood invitation is the standout element on this Bar Mitzvah design. Used throughout the suite in buttercream ink, the wood grain pattern is artfully paired with a wide cocoa colored backer card, a green tea pocket folder and woodblock typeface. On both the inspiration board and final printed suite, a masculine, yet playful look is achieved.

It’s time for another one of our Custom Wedding Portfolio II Sneak Peeks, where we share a glimpse into the process our designers went through while creating some of our newest designs. We love all of our new designs and it’s hard to decide which one to share next, but this week we chose to share the Rutherford suite after seeing the Salmon & Parchment color combination in a few places, including this post on the Martha Stewart Weddings blog and this color palette post by Perfect Bound. The design could work well with just about any color palette, but our designers chose this sweet, flirty combination as a modern twist on a traditional romantic pink wedding.
Our Rutherford suite was created with a certain bride in mind – one who has a lot of details to share with her guests. With multiple cards included with the suite, we took the opportunity to layer those cards with different patterns so that they could be stair-stepped in the pocket fold for visual impact. Envelopments pocket folds are perfect for this type of suite since they provide a stylish way to keep all of the many details in one place (plus, we can pair any of our designs with any color and format pocket fold they have to offer!). We love dressing up the outside of the pocket with more luscious letterpress too. The pattern on the wide letterpress printed belly band wrapped around the London Fog colored pocket fold gives a suggestion of what guests can expect inside … much like this imaginary bride’s event and the invite itself. It’s all about the layers and discovering all of the many details that this bride has planned (for months and months!) for her guests.
The main invitation card features the font HT Pasticceria designed by Ryoichi Tsunekawa of Nagoya, Japan. The typeface is based on Italian shopfront lettering and wallpaint advertisements from the 1950s, which we paired with a textile-inspired background pattern – a perfect fit for our vintage modern aesthetic.
