We are very happy to announce a new series of posts we will be doing over the next few months designed to provide you with little sneak peeks into the creation of our new letterpress wedding album, the Dauphine Press Custom Wedding Portfolio II! We’ve had quite a lot of fun pulling inspiration for these wedding designs and we are incredibly excited to see the finished suites rolling off the presses.
Today we present you with the first installment, our Marinwood tri-fold save the date. Below you will see a few snapshots of the final product!

For several years, we have worked with The Hamlin School, a private girls’ school in San Francisco, on invitation projects. This year we again collaborated with the school on a colorful and fun invitation for their Spring Gala which took place at San Francisco City Hall and featured Bollywood dancers. This year’s theme was “Live. Work. Play.” and the invitation design focused on a hand drawn floral Mendhi design.
In setting the theme for the event, we designed the invitation for offset (flat) printing to achieve full-page knockouts that gave the large-format invitation a pop of color. We chose a bright pink envelope with the return address and floral motif letterpress printed in silver ink. The motif also spilled over to the front of the envelope when sealed. We also designed and printed a translucent fly sheet as an added layer to and was slipped into the oversized tri-fold invitation.
We were delighted to learn that the event was a wonderful success for the school and we look forward to working with the ladies from The Hamlin School again next year.
