Designer’s Inspiration {week one hundred nine}

7.10-DI-WEEK-111

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.

We’re drawn to the organic watercolor pattern on this chaise. The varied pattern paired with the stark contrast of the color palette make quite a statement. We are always trying to capture this same striking first impression with our invitation designs. It’s the perfect way to get your wedding guests excited about your wedding day!

Suite Spotlight – Princeton Foil Stamped Wedding Invitation

We love every one of our invitation designs equally, but with this round of new wedding invitation samples for our Custom Wedding Portfolio II we may have played favorites … we love the technique of using two layers of foil stamping on our last new design, Princeton. We hope you love it as much as we do!

An epic day deserves an equally glorious and captivating invitation. The Princeton wedding invitation suite is your perfect match with an abundance of sweet romance and the most opulent elements. Printed in both pearl and silver foil on a sweet die-cut card and paired with shimmery metallic envelope liner and response envelope, this suite is like a vintage piece of jewelry saved for the most extraordinary of events.

We created our Custom Wedding Portfolio knowing that every couple we work with would like the opportunity to customize their wedding stationery. We love creating inspiration, like the Princeton wedding invitation suite, to show you how you can dream big like two layers of foil stamping and a diecut shape! Pairing your ideas with the elements in our Custom Wedding Portfolio, you’re sure to end up with a design that is unique to you and your wedding day. Best of all, it is also designed to be fun! We encourage you to scour our website {don’t forget to check out our Search By Style feature} and meet with the experts at your local Dauphine Press retailer to get their guidance and input.

Suite Spotlight – Stratford Letterpress Wedding Invitation

Last week we shared the first of four brand new suites added to our Custom Wedding Portfolio II. Today we’re looking at the inspiration behind our take on classic black and white! 

Elegance at its best, our Stratford wedding invitation incorporates a traditional font combination in jet black letterpress ink framed by a romantic, detailed damask pattern in a subtle varnish. The “icing on the cake” is the coordinating invitation envelope in a textured black linen with our white foil stamping on the decorative return address. With white calligraphy, this suite is sure to delight guests the second they receive the mail. This alluring design is ideal for the couple looking for a contemporary take on the black tie wedding.

Suite Spotlight – Greenwich Letterpress Wedding Invitation

Spring is the perfect time for change and new growth! We’re excited to reveal the first of four new invitations added to our Custom Wedding Portfolio II. These new wedding invitation suites include designs that range from traditional and vintage to modern and whimsical! We have also added to our custom elements {90 new motifs, 20 new monograms and 63 new patterns} to give you more to play with when you’re creating your very own wedding stationery.

Our first new wedding invitation suite, Greenwich, celebrates the best of letterpress printing by pairing elements that showcase the letterpress impression with thick and thin lines. Details like the script and headline typefaces as well as the delicate, winding frame and surrounding lush pattern, make this suite perfect for a couple set on designing every detail of their wedding day. The tonal color palette of lavender and caramel letterpress inks lends to the overall romantic feel of this sweet design.
