Earthworks- the act of giving feels so good!

Over the years, Bella Figura has formed partnerships with important environmental organizations. One such organization is Earthworks, whose campaigns focus on the far reaching ecological and humanitarian concerns caused by all types of mining. Projects such as their “No Dirty Gold Campaign” are very important to exposing the truths behind this important wedding focused industry. Read about the search for the perfect conflict-free engagement ring!

One way we like to support our sustainable partners is to help them create beautiful communication pieces to use with their donors and other partners. For Earthworks, we created these simple, elegant Thank You Notes, and “From the Desk Of” note pads. Letterpress printed on our luxurious 1-ply white 100% reclaimed cotton paper in vine ink, the cards shine with the Earthworks logo. We love giving back, especially when the focus is something we hold dear to our hearts.

Hopefully these pieces will help further the cause!

Comely Cursive Harrison Calligraphy Letterpress Thank You Notes

It’s always such a pleasure to work with our amazing clients and to craft their unique creative vision into letterpress reality (really it is).  Take for instance these extended horizontal thank you notes – they’re so different and cool that we just had to share them with everyone.  They feature Patricia Mumau‘s Harrison style hand calligraphy, and they’re printed in a stunning combination of espresso and ink-less blind deboss.  The champagne edge painting really stands out boldly on our 2-ply paper and we absolutely love the way no. 10 dimensions work for this piece.

inks: espresso + blind deboss | calligraphy style: harrison | paper: 2-ply white | size: no. 10 | edge painting: champagne | client coordinator: chris gannon | in-house designer: racheal decker

Super Chic Clover Letterpress

To coordinate with their booklet letterpress invitations, we worked with Jennifer and Aret to create special letterpress pieces for their wedding weekend. A welcome booklet detailed weekend events and details and we also printed tea length letterpress dinner menus and table number cards. Oversized letterpress thank you cards (which will later hold a wedding photo) were the perfect finishing touch. Everything was printed in clover and blind deboss on our white cotton paper for a chic and completely sophisticated look.

We printed this fabulous customization of our Claddagh letterpress wedding invitation design in antique gold and taupe inks on ivory paper showcasing gorgeous hand calligraphy accents from calligrapher Debi Zeinert.

The couple had their wedding website printed on the envelope, as well – a great way to provide guests with additional wedding information! To round out the suite, we also had the pleasure of printing matching letterpress thank you cards and pretty letterpress program covers.

Exuberance Letterpress Wedding Invitations

As fall moves into Upstate New York, we find ourselves in love with these letterpress wedding invitations, a customization of our Exuberance design bursting with fall colors on our ivory paper. The letterpress invitations and reception cards were printed in pumpkin and antique gold inks, while the directions cards, reply cards and thank you cards were each printed in 1-color letterpress – the directions cards were printed in marigold, the reply cards in antique gold, and the thank you cards in pumpkin. We love how this customization incorporates so many great coordinating colors resulting in a suite with warm, rustic charm that’s just perfect for this couple’s upcoming fall ranch wedding.
