Designer’s Desktop {Fairfield Save the Date}

When viewing any of the designs on our website, be sure to check out the “view custom variations of this suite” link on each page under “inspiration”. If you’re looking for unique ways to customize one of our designs, this page is full of inspiration for you!

Our Fairfield wedding invitation suite is shown with a trifold save the date on the main page. If you’re looking for a non-folded save the date, one that keeps things simple and just shares the most important details with your guests, you will be happy to know that we’ve already done the design work for you! Shown with the custom variations for Fairfield, is this pretty little save the date card:

Using the same pattern as a frame along with the striking angled copy, this design just might be the perfect fit!

Our custom variations also show different print methods and combinations to match any budget as well, so be sure not to miss this gem when pulling all of your wedding stationery ideas together. If you need help mapping things out, or if you already have your favorites selected, contact us and we can start pulling the visuals together for your custom wedding suite!

Client Customization – Traditional With A Pop Of Color

As graphic designers we are often inspired by all creative avenues. We love when print design crosses paths with fashion or home decor. When our exclusive retailer Only The Best approached us with this design, we could not wait to see it in print. The overall textile-like pattern {printed in our varnish ink under charcoal letterpress} added to the accessory card of our Carneros invitation design adds even more visual interest to the overall design and really highlights the letterpress printing.

Framing the cards in a raspberry edge painting adds a delightful pop of color that we also love seeing in fashion and home decor. Do you have a favorite fashion or home decor statement you love to make? If so, tell us about it! We love the challenge of incorporating the personal style of all of our couples into their custom design.

Designer’s Desktop {Solage Letterpress Wedding Invitation}

In our Custom Wedding Portfolio II, we feature stand-out save the date cards at the start of the album. We are often asked what the corresponding invitation and response card would look like. Our Designer’s Desktop series is the perfect place to share these details with you!

One of those save the date cards is our Solage save the date, which incorporates a two-layer antique engraving frame and a space for your engagement photo. For the invitation, we use the same two-layer frame and instead of your engagement photo taking center stage, we replace it with your invitation wording. We kept the horizontal layout, which allows for the couples’ names to fall on the same line. The response card follows suit with a similar layout, but with a small shift in the frame detail to keep things interesting.

We love the way the vintage feel of the frame pairs with the traditional wedding invitation fonts and layout within it. The delicate balance not only makes a statement to your guests, but it also beautifully showcases the letterpress printing.

If you would love to see this design in print, contact us or one of our retailers and we would be more than happy to customize this design for you on your wedding day!

 

Client Customization – Letterpress + Calligraphy

We’re sharing this custom design with you today to remind you of how well letterpress printing pairs with hand calligraphy. Not only do they both shout “wedding,” but when you work with us or one of our retailers and use the design process outlined in our Custom Wedding Portfolio II, we can turn hand calligraphy into a letterpress plate and print it on your wedding invitation suite!

If you plan to use a calligrapher for addressing your invitations, why not also have them write your names for your wedding invitation? It’s like creating a custom font! Take a peek at how this couple incorporated calligraphy into their design.

Using hand calligraphy for the most important details on your wedding invitation suite really makes it feel special and personalized. Wouldn’t you agree?!

Client Customization – Classic Letterpress Wedding Invitation

This letterpress wedding invitation design is one we hold close to our hearts {and our history}. At the start of Dauphine Press, one of our favorite layouts was a classic combination of an all-caps serif font paired with a restrained script in a contrasting color. Topping that layout was a personal touch – the lighthouse this couple used – to personalize the design for the couple and their wedding location. We love this tried-and-true combination that feels fresh and traditional at the same time. Easily customized with your own motif or monogram at the top of the card, we are truly font of this evergreen formula.
