When Stationery Trends Magazine identified Delphine's president and creative director, Erika Firm, as one of Top 10 Designers to Watch in 2011, it was the icing on the cake for the boutique stationery company, which has earned 25 nods from magazines including Lucky and The Knot since 2006. The reason for the hoopla is the balance of playfulness and timeless elegance expressed in the team's portfolio of fine-art prints, calling cards, and ephemera for special events. Wedding invitations take on a cheeky charm with cactus motifs or a do-it-yourself elegance with stitching patterns looped around flowing script, and the Baroquera font delivers good tidings of the bowl cut's demise in a sleek interpretation of medieval German black letter.
The team is also at the forefront of sustainability, printing on papers made from recycled cotton fibers or manufactured in plants running on hydroelectric power. Letterpress printing requires little energy and emblazons fine art and important missives in hand-mixed soy inks, and digital printers decorate smooth 110-pound cardstock with minimal waste. Finally, the online customizing and ordering process enables you to flip through 52 color choices, preventing potential exhaustion of limited rainbow resources.
