Bella Figura in the Press: Spring 2013

Our letterpress wedding invitations have received some amazing publicity lately, so today it’s time again to say thank you to the amazing editors who have shined the spotlight on Bella Figura this spring! Our first feature is from Martha Stewart Weddings, where we created foil stamped and letterpress wedding invitations for one of their gorgeous real weddings. Megan, the bride, submitted the artwork for us to print — we love the glamorous outcome!

Dashing Letterpress Invites with Custom Illustration

This version of Ian Koenig‘s Dash design features a hand drawn (and really adorable) illustration of the Bride and Groom.  The illustration was penned by our friend Carolynn Giordano, and it’s folky, handdrawn style just fits this design so perfectly.  Custom design charges apply for this kind of thing, so please get in touch if you’re interested in something similar.

Bella Figura in the press, fall 2012

We love seeing the real weddings of our customers, but it’s an extra-special treat when we get to see them in print! Martha Stewart Weddings magazine featured not one, but two real weddings of Bella Figura brides & grooms in their Fall 2012 issue. The first wedding featured our modern Pyramid design by Ellie Snow, while the second showcased our Garden Vine design by Erin Jang. Check out some of the other fantastic publications that Bella Figura has been spotted in this fall.

Inside Weddings included several Bella Figura invitations for their Fall 2012 issue as well — Kelle Anne McCarter’s Canto design, Lindsy Aragona’s Overlook design and a customization of Jamie Lea Bertsch’s Cecilia all shared the spotlight.

Modern Letterpress Wedding Invitations: What’s big for 2012

Our latest letterpress wedding invitation release was full of many modern gems, but today we’re sharing the top 6 modern invitations so far from 2012. We’ve noticed neon shows its pretty little head in a sophisticated way (or think about neon edge painting on a very formal invite!). Black ink on a modern letterpress design keeps things formal while still feeling new. Foil, of course, is on the list — we are especially loving double foil (think matte silver and shiny silver, or silver paired with gold). You’ll find names in oversized fonts, along with slightly untraditional text layout and minimal design. Want to see more? Check out all of our modern wedding invitations here.

What are your favorite colors, fonts, and invitation designs for a modern wedding? Tell us in the comments section below!
