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 – Cloverdale Letterpress Save the Date

To reveal our process here, our blog posts are a collaboration of our design team and me (Kendra) — the designers gather all of the inspiration and gorgeous visuals and I get to talk (write) about it. It’s like everything we do, even the way orders are processed — Tracy and I get to talk to our retailers about the details and the designers make it happen. To get back to the point, I have the pleasure of opening blog post drafts that have already been infused with the visuals and then I get to write about them, sharing all of the details with you. Every single time, I think I let out an audible gasp and today’s post was no different. I love seeing the inspiration behind each of our designs, all in one place and alongside the full suite. I have a special place in my heart for each and every one of our designs and it amazing me how seeing the inspiration boards makes me fall in love with our designs even more!

Today’s Suite Spotlight, Cloverdale, really lets the couple’s special day shine by highlighting their wedding date and making it the centerpiece of their save the date card. As Dauphine Press graphic designer, Heather, mentioned in our recent Designer’s Pick post, the large format is unexpected for a save the date and makes a great impression to those who receive it in the mail. The wash of pool letterpress ink on the borders and charcoal vintage-meets-rustic fonts give it a slightly beachy vibe perfect for a spring or summer wedding. The intricate detail of the bold numerals and delicate pattern has a lovely and tactile feel when letterpress printed into our rich cotton papers. See for yourself!

Get the Look – Grecian Goddess

At Dauphine Press we are huge fans of Santa Barbara Chic and Jose Villa — when the two came together at the beginning of August for this exquisitely graceful and ethereal style shoot, we couldn’t have been more inspired! The effortless color palette is perfect for a late summer wedding or a fresh alternative to a traditional fall color palette.

Our design team paired some of our custom design elements to create the perfect letterpress invitation suite to complement this color palette. Enjoy!

Client Customization – The Auburn Suite

Happy Friday! Today we want to share a sweet customization of our Auburn save the date. This lovely little job came to us from INK by Kymberli Parker. We think that the color palette and playful woodblock inspired type is a perfect fit for a late summer wedding, don’t you?

Meet Our New Foil + Letterpress Wedding Invitation Suite – Hamilton

Though we were sad to hear that The Great Gatsby movie has been delayed from its original debut this winter, with the new release date of summer 2013 we actually love that the light and airy palette of our Hamilton invitation suite will be right at home for an art deco inspired wedding in the summer months!

Our Hamilton suite is all about color and detail. Our new Honeydew foil gives a subtle touch of color but a whole lot of shine framing the vintage typefaces and on the vintage French pattern printed on the back of the invitation card. The secondary highlight is subtlety at its best with the new Lemon painted edges and new Lemon Meringue stock used on the response card. We especially love how the Honeydew foil prints on the Lemon Meringue paper – looks good enough to eat! This entire suite is traditional at heart, but really shows off the vintage glamour feel through the sweet color palette and intricate frame and pattern. Bon appétit!

The Hamilton Suite

We’re loving Hamilton since it incorporates a number of the new custom design elements in our album — from the colored foil to the opaque Copper letterpress ink, to the fact that they both print beautifully on our premium letterpress papers as well as the vibrant Lemon Meringue stock. We hope you’re excited to visit your local Dauphine Press exclusive retailer to put your ideal stationery suite together — because we are certainly excited to see what you come up with using our new design elements!
