While the rest of the world is gearing up for the holidays, around here we’re hard at work helping couples prepare for their upcoming summer 2010 weddings. We’ve been printing a lot of really fabulous letterpress save the dates in recent weeks and had to take a moment to share a couple of our latest favorites. Both of these customizations are great examples of how completely personal you can make one of our Bella Figura letterpress designs just by playing with ink colors, fonts and layout.
This fun letterpress save the date is a customization of our Champagne design, printed here in amethyst and garden inks. The layout is simple, keeping the emphasis on the sans serif type asking guests to save the date. A website address is provided in the lower corner so guests have easy access to further details and information about the event while keeping the design of the save the date itself clean and modern.
Using our Mimosa design, this couple opted for a vertical orientation with champagne and garden inks to make this design their own. The play between all lowercase serif type and all uppercase serif type for their names makes it a bit more playful and fun than a more traditional layout. We love these vibrant colors – they’ll be perfect for a summer wedding!
When checking out our letterpress gallery, keep in mind that all of our designs can be easily customized to suit the personality of your event. Love a design but wish it were printed in red instead of purple? We can do that and much more to help you make a design uniquely yours, just as we did with these two couples when designing their save the dates.

There is something really fun about working with couples to print letterpress save the dates for their upcoming weddings – they’re often newly engaged and completely excited as they delve into wedding planning. So, when we recently had the opportunity to print these awesome save the dates, we were beyond thrilled. In our Majorca design, printed in cream and garden inks, these save the dates actually feature two cards in our reply card size that are then fastened together with a grommet, a simple yet completely unique feature that we love!
The first card features basic save the date information including the wedding date and location – the date is emphasized in large serif type for a look that is clean and modern.
The second card features detailed lodging and travel information for guests traveling from out of town. Providing such details can prove immensely useful for guests as they prepare to join you for your celebration.
This kind of truly customized letterpress save the date is our favorite to print – we love seeing couples take our designs and play with font and sizes and colors to totally reinvent something that is perfect for their unique event.

Perfect for a summer wedding or a beach-side destination wedding, we’re completely in love with these Nautlius letterpress save the dates we recently printed. A fabulous 1-color letterpress design printed in navy ink, these save the dates are the definition of preppy chic. The Nautilus design is one of our favorites, because it features a choice of several different motifs including the crab shown here, a palm tree, starfish, anchor, and others, all perfect for any nautical-themed event. We think it’s fun, festive and yet completely sophisticated – a sure sign of good things to come for guests at this wedding!
One more sweet letterpress save the date to inspire you….this is our Deveril letterpress design, which looks great in any ink color, but we are partial to this design in a rich black letterpress ink. This is a reply card size save the date as well (3 1/2″ x 4 7/8″) — a great idea which uses less paper (eco!) and also is less expensive than the larger 4.5″ x 6.25″ A-6 save the date size.
We’ve been designing and printing a whole lot of lovely letterpress save the dates lately — here are a few of our favorites! We’ll start with Cartoccio, one of our new wedding invitation designs — it’s timeless, classic, and really cool in the vibrant garden green ink.
Birds is another 2009 design that looks lovely in hot colors (though we think it would be awesome in black as well!).
We loved the elegant Bordure save the date with these ultra elegant serif fonts!
Here’s our New Calligraphy design as a save the date – in moss ink, with moss edge painting, on our ultra-thick 2-ply cotton paper (the 2-ply paper really lets the edge painting stand out). The mix of the modern & the historical in this letterpress calligraphy design is so cool, and the moss ink color is full of personality too.
To further celebrate the Somersby design, here is a letterpress save the date in super sweet colors: daffodil & pewter. These shades of yellow and gray just joyfully sing about all that is good in summer to us. We’ve been hearing a lot about the beauty of gray lately too and you know what? Everyone raving about that color is absolutely right. Gray is sophisticated, warm, and perfect for letterpress invitations right now.
Here are two more variations of our bestselling Deveril letterpress invitation design: an elegant letterpress save the date in navy, and a letterpress menu, tied with a ribbon & finished with a jewel (wow!). We love the Deveril design for a lot of reasons, but in part we love its historical and joyful nature, its sophistication, and its warm sweet energy all its own.
