Client Customization – Floral Letterpress Save the Date Card

Decorative floral patterns and motifs are always a traditional choice for wedding stationery. Today’s Client Customization takes detailed peony and hydrangea motifs {two quintessential wedding flowers!} and pairs them with other classic touches in a unique format to create a custom save the date.


The letterpress printed floral motifs framing each panel of this trifold save the date card in a soft neutral fall into the background behind the classic black letterpress text. A combination of a script font and an all caps serif complete the look highlighting essential wedding guest details – travel directions, accommodation suggestions and the vital wedding weekend timeline.

This combination of design elements would complement any wedding decor. With small changes such as the color of the florals, the motifs chosen or the size and format of the card, you could easily create your own custom design to suit your unique event. With our Custom Wedding Portfolio II and the assistance of one of our exclusive retailers, you can create a one-of-a-kind wedding stationery suite for you and your event!

Client Customization – Presidio Inspired Letterpress Save the Date Card

This charming save the date card is one of our favorite custom designs. The bride and groom went through every detail in our Custom Wedding Portfolio II and chose their favorite design elements, letterpress ink colors and format to create their very own version of our trifold save the date card.

Heavily inspired by our Presidio wedding invitation suite, incorporating multiple design elements as well as the letterpress ink color palette, the final design is one that will have guests thrilled to be invited to this destination wedding.  The custom teal, inviting sea glass green and golden saffron letterpress inks are perfectly layered to show off the destination map, handsome frames and graphic center panel that will ultimately display the couple’s engagement photo.


It doesn’t get any more personal than this! And the best part? All of this custom design is included with your order, at no additional cost, when you design your wedding invitation suite through one of our exclusive retailers.

Client Customization – Fancy Foil Stamped Save the Date

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!
