Dauphine Press Designer's Inspiration

The sweet subjects in this image are the perfect signs of spring! We love the delicate red fabrics against the textured and rustic neutrals in the background. It’s a little like our sleek foil stamping on our textured cotton papers. What an excellent spring mix!

Hope you have an inspiring weekend!

Designer’s Inspiration {week forty-eight}

Dauphine Press Designer's Inspiration

We’re celebrating April showers with this image of sweet floral patterned umbrellas. We love the contrast of the fine florals against the weathered wall, but mostly, all of these patterns have us dreaming of ways to incorporate them {and possibly many of them!} into wedding stationery!

Hope you have an inspiring weekend!

Client Customization – Vintage Rose

It’s that time of year! We are starting to see lots of orders for save the date cards. We know how engaged couples feel when the holidays are quickly approaching and you’re anticipating the New Year just around the corner … more than likely, that New Year represents your year! We know what it’s like, while everyone else is thinking about pumpkin spice lattes and holiday ski trips, you’re thinking about next spring, preparing for a very special day!

Well, we’re right here with you and today we are sharing a beautiful save the date card featuring 3-color letterpress. Two of those ink colors are dedicated to our vintage rose motif. The bold size of the rose detail makes a beautiful statement in the soft petal pink and sage green. Classic fonts in black letterpress ink lend an overall elegant feel to this wedding stationery wardrobe.

There’s a perfectly subtle tiny touch on these cards we’re featuring today too. Did you catch it? With just a simple shift of the third ink color on the note cards, from traditional black to an earthy olive, the overall look of that one piece is slightly more casual. It’s in details like these that our exclusive retailers, like Judy Paulen Designs at Bloomingdale’s who sent us this customization, help couples perfect when creating a design using our Custom Wedding Portfolio. Visit your local Dauphine Press exclusive retailer to get started on the stationery for your year, today!

Trend Alert – Rose Gold

Our design team is always keeping their eyes out for new inspiration and trends. As you know, we often blog about our inspiration, but today we’re starting something new {drum roll please} – “Trend Alerts.” With this latest post, we plan to share fresh, emerging trends that we look forward to translating into stationery design!

The first trend our team has their eyes on is the timeless metallic, rose gold. Rose gold is a soft, neutral metallic, which can be paired with other metallics and/or just about any other color. It is sweet and romantic, making it perfect for spring and summer weddings.

Suite Spotlight – Chalk Hill Letterpress Wedding Invitation

Here, in Northern California, spring has arrived in full force. The days are longer, the sun is warmer and everything is blooming. It’s the perfect time to share our Chalk Hill wedding invitation suite and inspiration board with you. Chalk Hill was inspired by the pastoral landscapes of the wine country, which is displayed on paper in our wisteria and copper letterpress inks. The winding florals and calligraphic typography of this custom letterpress design make it the perfect choice for an event that is rustically romantic.
