Suite Spotlight – Vignette Letterpress Invitation

The next design in our Suite Spotlight series is the Vignette collection from our original Custom Wedding Portfolio. Over time, this popular, evergreen suite has seen many variations and thus showcases the best of our custom design process.

Originally designed for Martha Stewart Weddings magazine as a wedding suite, this “vintage with a modern twist” letterpress printed card is an architecturally-inspired design that blends classic proportions with modern minimalism. The variation we are showcasing today was recently added to our website’s Custom Social Stationery gallery. Customized as a social invitation for a winemaker’s dinner party, it features our black and saffron letterpress inks and a black linen envelope liner.

Given all of the requests we received lately for invitations with a mid-century modern theme, the inspiration board details a grand party with vintage flair!

The Lab Event 2013 – Part II

In an earlier post, we shared a few Instagram shots from The Lab Event and the Peony Pop vignette we were lucky enough to help bring to life with the help of some of Northern California’s top wedding vendors. Today we are thrilled to be sharing photographs of the final vignette taken by the incredible (and always adorable!) Pictilio photography team.

The original Peony Pop inspiration board was chosen by The Lab Event and Snippet & Ink to be presented as one of the vignettes at the event. Along with Pictilio, we were paired with A Savvy Event (Design & Coordination), Valley Flora (flowers), Sweet on Cake (cake) and Milk Glass (vintage rentals) to bring this mix of retro fun and romantic elegance to life at Cline Cellars. Enjoy!

You can see more images and read more about how the entire look came together on both Pictilio blog, A Savvy Event blog and Snippet and Ink.

Are you inspired by the Peony Pop vignette? Does it have you brainstorming ideas for how to style your big day and incorporate your Dauphine Press custom letterpress and foil stationery? If so, you can contact one our exclusive retailers to start the process!

If you are looking for even more inspiration, next up is our Suite Spotlight post on the Monterey letterpress and foil wedding invitation suite we created for the event.

Printing Spotlight: Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party

We were honored to play a small part in the Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF) Academy Awards Viewing Party this past weekend. Our parent company, DataGraphic, had the pleasure of printing the invitation and program (designed by Project Projects) for this important event:

A little bit about the event:

EJAF’s very first Academy Awards Viewing Party took place in February of 1992 – a gathering of a small group of concerned and generous friends at the Maple Drive Restaurant that raised $300,000 to help EJAF in its infancy. Since then, the benefit has grown by leaps and bounds, raising $5.1 million in 2008 alone. Featuring a cocktail reception, a gala dinner during the live Academy Awards telecast, a live auction, and performances by Sir Elton John and special guests, the Party brings together luminaries from the Hollywood community, business, fashion, music, public service, and philanthropy to celebrate the achievements of the Academy Awards nominees and to raise urgently needed dollars for EJAF’s vital work. During an evening when the eyes of the world are on Hollywood, EJAF’s Party focuses public awareness on the continually evolving AIDS epidemic.

 

Dauphine Press and DataGraphic have a lot of exciting projects to share. DataGraphic specializes in commercial offset printing and specialty finishes such as genuine engraving, fine letterpress, foil stamping & embossing. We are thrilled to be able to pass these expanded capabilities along to our clients – stay tuned over the coming months as we release more information about this exciting partnership!
