Our 2012 Design Contest is in full swing, and today we’re excited to begin announcing our finalists! The lovely Amanda from Ruffled — one of our all-time favorite wedding blogs — was our judge for this year’s contest. If you’re looking for pretty wedding inspiration with a vintage touch, Ruffled is the place to go!
Amanda selected this modern customization of our Ribbon design from Judy Paulen Designs in Tenafly, New Jersey as the third place winner for our contest. Amanda said, “This invitation immediately has me daydreaming of a flowy wedding gown and a garden wedding. The scripted font is perfect for this style – whimsical and chic, just how this wedding would be.”
We think the added embellishments — bold edge painting, rounded corners and a statement pocketfold — definitely upped the wow-factor on this invitation set. The bride, Danielle, worked with Judy for her invitation suite, and she shared a snippet of Danielle’s vision with us: Danielle loved the sample in the Bella Figura album. She was looking for an unusual invitation that would intrigue and excite her international guest list, and the Ribbon design worked perfectly!
Congratulations to Judy Paulen Designs for placing third in our 2012 Design Contest! We’ll be announcing our second place winner tomorrow!

This design won third place in our Bella Figura design competition for 2012. This annual competition recognizes outstanding and inspired designs submitted to us by our beloved dealers.
We’ve spied a recent color trend centered on our gorgeous Mediterranean ink, showcased here on a Ribbon letterpress save the date. The color is cool and watery and plays nicely at weddings both formal and casual, modern and traditional. We just can’t get enough of these awesome save the dates!
A couple of months ago we featured Una and Eli’s letterpress wedding invitations and recently we had the pleasure of printing their letterpress thank you cards to match. Once again showcasing our Ribbon design, these pretty folded notes were printed in celadon and taupe inks to perfectly coordinate with their invitations, an easy and beautiful way to effortlessly coordinate the design details of your wedding.
This customization of our Ribbon letterpress wedding invitation design was printed in taupe and celadon inks and features a taupe envelope liner. One of our new designs for 2010, Ribbon was created for us by Erin Jang, an incredibly talented designer and art director. We love this sophisticated, earthy color palette for this couple’s fall wedding.
