Surya and Sailboat Letterpress Save the Dates

Rounding out our posts of fun letterpress save the dates for the week, these are two cool customizations we printed for weddings this past summer. The first is our Surya design printed in rich amethyst and pool inks. We love this pairing of pretty jewel tones and suspect this will be a continuing trend in the months to come.

This letterpress save the date is a really fun customization of our Sailboat design in garden and navy inks. It’s really the perfect save the date for this couple’s wedding, which took place in the beautiful Thousand Islands region of Upstate NY, not too far from our studio in Syracuse.

New Calligraphy Letterpress Save the Dates

In 2009 our New Calligraphy design has become one of our most popular and we love seeing how couples work with our designers and calligrapher to create something truly special for their event. These customized letterpress save the dates both feature the beautiful hand calligraphy of our New Calligraphy design, but beyond that are very different designs.

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.

Custom Letterpress Save the Dates with Grommets

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.

Nautilus Letterpress Save the Date

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!

Deveril letterpress save the dates: a classic in black ink

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.

Use calligraphy in your letterpress save the date card!

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.
