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.
Town & Country Weddings put together a fabulous round-up of inspiration for a New York City wedding, and included a gorgeous customization of our Charmed New York invitation design as part of the feature.
Pacific Weddings magazine included Ian Koenig’s Dash design and Jamie Lea Bertsch’s Indie Twill design in their gorgeous, equestrian-inspired reception set-up. Bonus: they’ve got even more photos from this amazing shoot on their website!
Brides magazine featured Bella Figura in both their October and their November issues! In October, letterpress place cards featuring our Rosemary design were included as part of a Tuscan Garden inspiration palette. The November issue featured several Bella Figura designs — our Bejeweled design fit in perfectly with a “Roaring Twenties” inspiration page (which is overflowing with glamorous, Gatsby-esque touches) and three of our foil stamped invitations (Dada by Jamie Lea Bertsch; Glamorous Blooms and Fugue by Kamal) were included in an “All that Glitters” feature.
Last week we showed you a look at some of our new 2012 letterpress invitation designs before and after they were customized, and this week we’re back with more design transformations! We’ve redone 5 of our favorite new modern invitation designs to show you just how much different an invitation can look with a color change, new fonts, and some design adjustments.
Neo Luna by Ian Koenig is charming and simple in the original design, but takes on a bolder look with a font change, added color and silver shine foil stamping.
Suggested embellishments: We think this design would look stunning with surf edge painting and a colorful envelope liner in the sea stripes pattern, printed in surf, marigold and mesa inks.
Details: letterpress ink: surf | foil stamping: silver shine | fonts: ollie + swiss | paper: bella cotton white 2-ply | size: f-8 | rounded corners
The Drawing Room design by in-house designer Sarah Walroth features fresh new fonts and a custom pocket-fold, but takes on a more whimsical look after a bit of customizing. We love this design as a square invitation with corner rounding, along with a playful font and fuchsia ink for the names.
Suggested embellishments: A white cotton pocketfold, letterpress printed with prussian blue ink and a blue pearl metallic envelope liner would add the perfect amount of shine to this pretty invitation set.
Details: letterpress inks: fuchsia + prussian blue | fonts: saint-andrew + lady rene | paper: bella cotton white 2-ply | size: sq-7 for pocketfold | pocketfold: white, letterpressed in prussian blue ink
Ellie Snow designed the Classic Chevron invitation, which features on-trend chevron patterning, two lines of Belle hand calligraphy, and pretty sea-side and jade letterpress inks. The switch of jade ink to mustard and the repositioning of the chevron pattern gives this design customization a retro feel with a modern twist. Read the rest of this page »
Suggested embellishments: A pretty custom postage stamp along with a custom envelope liner featuring the sweet polka pattern in mustard + sea-side inks would be lovely accents for this wedding invitation.
Details: letterpress inks: mustard + sea-side | fonts: sans capitals + hollow | paper: bella cotton white 2-ply | size: f-8
