Booklet Letterpress Wedding Invitations

We absolutely love this unique customization of our Champagne design! Letterpress printed in clover and blind deboss for a tropical destination wedding, we worked with this couple to create a small booklet by fastening the different elements of their invitation suite together with grommets. The page sizes are stepped to create tabs and labeled to identify which page contains what information. The booklet contains an invitation, an events card, a directions and accommodations card, and a reply card that is perforated to be torn out and returned.

Customized Champagne Letterpress Save the Dates – Two Ways

Over the past several months we’ve continued printing a lot of fabulous letterpress save the dates for upcoming spring and summer 2010 weddings. Recently we printed two customizations of a save the date design that we absolutely loved and couldn’t resist sharing both with you!

This version of our Champagne letterpress save the date is printed in fuchsia and pewter inks and features corner rounding for the perfect finishing touch.

This very different version of our Champagne design is printed in wine and clover inks. It’s a perfect example of how one design can be personalized in two unique ways and be equally perfect for two very different events.

Champagne Letterpress Wedding Invitations

When we’re working with couples to create their letterpress wedding invitations, we love seeing just how different they make one of our original designs by playing with personal details. This customization of our Champagne invitation is a perfect example of a couple who truly made a design their own. They opted for a subtle cream ink paired with black ink for all of the type on our thick 2-ply cotton paper, with metallic gold edge painting and a luxurious metallic gold envelope liner. It is sophisticated and completely elegant, perfect for their New York City wedding.

Floweret Custom Letterpress Wedding Invitations

This cheerful customization of our Floweret letterpress wedding invitation design is one of our favorite customizations of this particular design. It’s printed in champagne and cloud 9 blue inks and paired with a chic navy envelope liner. We also worked with the couple to customize the design to include more of the playful flower motif along the left side of the invitation, a change from the original design. They chose Memoir script for a really fun look that is whimsical, but still somewhat traditional. We love this personalization of our Floweret design – it’s definitely a new favorite!

Letterpress Save the Dates for Summer 2010

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.

Champagne Letterpress Save the Date from Bella Figura

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.

Mimosa Letterpress Save the Date from Bella Figura

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. For more ideas, check out our favorite letterpress save the dates.

Estrella Letterpress Thank You Note

With Labor Day weekend upon us and with it the threat of the long Central New York winter we know is to come looming in the not so far off distance, we can’t help but smile at this pretty, sunshine-inspired letterpress thank you note. A cheerful take on our Estrella letterpress wedding invitation design, it features bright champagne and persimmon inks. We think it’s a lovely ode to long sunny summer days.

Estrella Letterpress Thank You Note

Happy long weekend! May your holiday weekend be filled with lots of sunshine and happy smiles.
