The Scarsdale Wedding Suite

A few weeks ago we announced the release of our new Classic Weddings collection on instagram.

The new wedding invitation suites mix classic designs with clean typography and a touch of flair with foil stamping.

This invitation - Scarsdale - keeps it classy with black letterpress + gold foil. 

The Classic Collection is available oversized with our new larger envelopes. The black and white striped liner looks great in them.

Harry’s First Birthday Invitations

Its 1st Birthday time! We were so excited to get to work on these invitations for Harrison's first birthday.

The design started with the font - Core Circus - a layered type family that's one of our favorites. See the full post for more information about the different styles and effects you can achieve with it.

Our color palette was Navy + Gold and we wanted to mix matte and shine finishes with letterpress and foil.

The suite included an oversized invite, reply card, and custom envelopes.

#ColorInspiration Instagram Series

A while back we started an Instagram hashtag series - #ColorInspiration - and after 3 months, its the perfect time to share some of those with you.

What are we doing? We're mixing our obsession with ink with memorable / inspirational quotes because they're two things we love.

We talk a lot about mixing ink. From our favorite colors, to tips and tricks of the trade.

If you didn't know by now, all of our ink is mixed by hand. It gives us the flexibility to adjust colors to get a perfect match.

Check out our Instagram feed (@dolcepress) for more of these pictures and to catch up on our latest work.

Letterpress vs. Foil

We're asked about the difference between letterpress and foil stamping all the time. After we printed these cards for Wes Schulz of Dreams Collide we knew they were  perfect to illustrate the difference.

Foil Stamping (on the right) uses a metal plate  with heat to imprint foil onto paper.  Foil comes in a variety of shades including golds and silvers as well as a blues, greens, reds and lots of colors in between. We also have pigment (without the shine) and specialty foils like holographic and scratch off.

Letterpress (on the left) uses a plastic plate along with ink to create a debossed effect. There are more choices when it comes to ink color and if a pantone color doesn't exist, we mix it from scratch. Ink colors also include metallics (e.g. gold, bronze, copper, silver, etc.) and fluorescents.

Dia De Los Muertos Laser Cut Card

Halloween is fast approaching and today is the perfect day to share our brand new greeting cards.

We were inspired by the Day of the Dead and designed an ornate skull that was screaming to be laser cut.

The card, which is now available online (Halloween Skull), was laser cut out of black Neenah Astrobrights 65# cover stock.

We glued in a white sheet for each card to show off the laser cut design and make writing a spooky note easier.

Happy Halloween!

Back to Business: Color Concept Theory

In our latest installment of the Back to Business series, we're sharing a four-color letterpress business card for Color Concept Theory.

We repurposed elements that were part of the original logotype and made the custom pattern for the front of the cards. The pattern adds a nice texture to the cards when printed.

Here are the specs:
Size - 3.5" x 2"
Stock - 600gsm Duplexed Lettra
Printing - Letterpress - 4 colors
Press - Heidelberg Windmill
Design - Logo supplied by client
