Foil Stamped Starfish Wedding Invitations

Using our Ornate Flourish wedding invitation design as inspiration, Sara and Alexander swapped swirls for starfish for their elegant, beach-side wedding. For a touch of nautical inspiration, they added Navy edge paint and a metallic Blue Pearl envelope liner.

Ornate Flourish Design – Letterpress Program Panels + Thank You Notes

We’re loving these oversized program panels that we printed for our friends at Byrd + Bleecker. We also letterpressed folded thank you cards for this couple.  Adding hand calligraphy in the Clermont style adds a personal touch to these whimsical pieces.

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.

Two invitations from Bella Figura were featured in the 2012 Fall issue of Martha Stewart Weddings

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.

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.

Foil Stamped Ornate Flourish Invitations

Here’s a really cool example of how you can add little touches to invites to make them totally your own.  See those happy little birds?  They’re not included on the original version of Beth Barr‘s Ornate Flourish invitation design, but this client wanted birds on their invite so we went ahead and added them. With all of our designs being totally customizable, it’s super easy to make additions like this – simply select a motif from our motif gallery. Bottom line, if you have something unique in mind let us know – we can almost certainly find a way to make it happen.  Much love to our friends at Francis-Orr for sending this our way.
