Turquoise and Black Edge Painted Letterpress Business Cards

black edge painted letterpress business cards for chloe aftel photographer by delphineEvery time Chloe Aftel calls I know the project is going to be special. This time around she asked us for a “pop of kick ass color” to go with her “rad new logo.” (Yes, she’s from LA). We delivered with shocking electric turquoise edge painted business cards.

The image at right is one of my personal favorites. It was part of a stellar collection commissioned by Levis. Please note: the crappy photos in this post are by me, not the super talented lady we’re discussing here. 

turquoise edge painted letterpress business cards for chloe aftel photographer by delphineThese letterpress cards are killer, right?! We printed them with our super super dark blackest black ink for a sharp, crisp impression; Reich Paper’s ultra thick SAVOY paper in brilliant white; tight edge painting on every.single.card; and lots and lots of clean white space.

I’d like to pause for a shout out to all our photographer clients for understanding the power of white space. We looooove youuuuu! 

Now go grab a bottle of wine and dive into Chloe’s portfolio and blog. Down, down the rabbit hole you go … enjoy!

Seagrams Wedding Invitations | Haute Off the Press

Seagrams Wedding Invitations via DelphineWe love this bold approach to wedding invitations with our Seagrams design. This design was inspired by the mid century modern Seagrams building in Manhattan, where Erika’s godmother worked for decades. It’s shown here flat printed here in red and gris. Right away guests will know that this isn’t going to be a traditional wedding. Fun and modern are the adjectives that come to mind … it’s killing me to know what the Seagrams bride has in store for her special, stand-out day!

Vintage Lace Wedding Invitations Haute off the Press

vintage lace wedding invitation by delphineI’m so pleased to introduce a brand NEW design: Vintage Lace. It was inspired by a stunning piece of heirloom lace that Trish brought in as a photo shoot prop. The lace dates back to the late 1800s! Everyone in the studio just fell in love with the gorgeous lace pattern and all of the designers here at Delphine thought it would make a beautiful wedding invitation. It’s shown here flat printed, but how stunning would it be letterpressed?

Custom Calligraphy by Feast Wedding Invitations | Haute Off the Press

Custom Calligraphy by Feast Wedding Invitations via DelphineUsing Feast Calligraphy as the feature font on these beautiful wedding invitations was a no brainer. The style seemed to fit just right, especially in the dull gold ink. We letterpressed this stunner, so you can feel the beauty of each letterform with the touch of your finger.

Meeting Street Wedding Invitations in Miami and Punch

Meeting Street Wedding Invitations via DelphineOur Meeting Street wedding invitations in miami and punch are simple, summery but always elegant. This flat printed invitation is sleek with a touch of flare. The design itself allows many options because it is hard to find a font that doesn’t look good inside it, and there isn’t a color that doesn’t make it look fabulous.

Peony Rehearsal Invitations in Honeysuckle and Marine

Peony Wedding Invitations in Honeysuckle and Marine via DelphineOur Peony invitation is beautiful in bold colors. Honeysuckle pink is the epitome of summer, and it contrasts perfectly with our dark, marine blue. The punchy pink and navy color combo is a classic but super fun look. Perfect for a fun mid-summer party. One of the best things about flat printing is the ability to flood the background with a bright color.

We love how Tiffany and Taylor adapted our design for their wedding rehearsal dinner party. It’s also a great example of how rehearsal invitations can take a fun departure from the rest of a more formal letterpress wedding invitation suite.
