We’re obsessed with this visual! Graphic chalkboard typography never gets old. The control and creativity of the artist is simply perfection! The mix of fonts has us dreaming of a type inspired wedding invitation – our Auburn and Stinson suites are perfect examples of type as the focal point.
The Dauphine Press design team loves typography (Seriously. Truer words have never been spoken!) and we are all huge fans of the weekly Typography Mania post series from the Abduzeedo blog. This hand-lettered design by Pretty/Ugly Design is one of many inspiring pieces from this series.
Hope you have an inspiring weekend!
Vintage-inspired typography is letterpress printed on our Volusia wedding invitation suite, alongside a geometric pattern detail. The mix of classic script fonts to highlight the details of your event with boldface type and a distressed textural pattern, effortlessly exude casual elegance. The inspiration board displays a striking black and kelly green color palette and an aesthetic that presents pretty with an edge!

Such a great use of typography over this landscape photograph! We love the message too, especially on Valentine’s Day. What does “and so … the adventure begins” mean to you? What adventure are you beginning today? Marriage? Wedding planning? Wedding stationery design? Your wedding day? Or maybe all of the above!
Have an inspiring weekend!
We are very fortunate to have a team that brings creativity and spirit to their work and is invested in providing each client with a truly custom design. Through our regular Designer’s Pick posts, our designers will be choosing their favorite suites to share with you.A huge fan of wood type poster design, our Auburn suite has become one of my personal favorites. Combining casual and rustic elements, Auburn expresses a country-chic vibe with its use of vintage wood type-inspired fonts. The type treatment is so strong that it radiates a cheerful, fun-loving tone sans any specific motifs. The oversized ampersand acts as the focal point – the ideal visual element symbolizing the upcoming union. Another standout detail of this particular variation is the use of three letterpress ink colors. The intentional overlapping of inks (also know as “overprinting”) and the crosshatch background pattern give the card extra dimension. Auburn is the perfect design for a fun and artistic couple looking to add some color and history to their letterpress wedding invitations.
To see Auburn in-person, visit one of our exclusive retailers today! You can also find additional inspiration by viewing our Auburn lookbook pages showing all of the pieces in the suite as well as a collection of design variations.
