We were thrilled to create this glamorous invitation and day-of suite featuring Kamal‘s popular Vendage design for Mandy and Nishan’s beautiful wedding reception in Alberta, Canada. Their gorgeous celebration was a follow-up to an intimate destination wedding in Singapore, and was featured recently on Style Me Pretty.
From the bride, “I chose the Vendage invitation design by Kamal because it was more exotic, but also very elegant. I chose the colors based on the colors in my cholee – I loved the emerald green and gold. I thought it would be neat to do two colors — one color in letterpress ink and one in foil. The end result was gorgeous!”
With the creative combination of our vine letterpress ink and gold matte foil stamping we printed folded place cards and thank you cards in Kamal’s Vendage design. This bride chose to match the style to her invitation suite, which we absolutely love because it maintains cohesiveness throughout. We offer a wide array of day of pieces to complete a couple’s wedding celebration.

Bella Figura Design Contest Third Place Winner – Custom Letterpress Invitations from Union Street Papery! CONGRATULATIONS!!!
Working with Union Street Papery in San Francisco, California is always AMAZING!!! Stacey and her staff are the best people EVER! They are not only savvy business women, but are genuinely kind people – and they are all HILARIOUS. Love them! When you combine a wonderful dealer with a design like Vendage, from the utterly fabulous Kamal Patel, you are bound to create magic. The Vendage letterpress invitation customization features elegant hues of champagne and charcoal along with Debi Zeinert’s hand calligraphy accents in Spencerian. By eliminating the bird motif from the original design and using a vertical layout, this customization becomes romantic and sophisticated.
The beautiful bride, Emily, shared some words with us regarding her gorgeous suite!
“The design of the invitation was meant to evoke a summer garden party with a hint of modern design elements to make it current. Annadel Estate is a lovely winery located in Sonoma, but more than just a winery they have acres of rose gardens on the property. When I saw the floral print I knew it was perfect.”
… so perfect that our staff at Bella Figura chose Emily’s design as the third place winner!!!

This design won third place in our Bella Figura design competition for the first half of 2011. This twice-a-year competition recognizes outstanding and inspired design submitted by our beloved dealers.
Umber and Chartreuse inks laid down on our ivory paper lend this lovely letterpress wedding invitation set a distinctly earthy and organic look, while at the same time showing off some very sophisticated style. The bride and grooms names have been written out in Maura style hand calligraphy by Kelle McCarter, which gives a gorgeous dash of individuality to the Vendage design (by Kamal). To coordinate with their invitations, this couple also decided to print matching menus and program covers for their wedding. Homemade pies and cookies you say? YES PLEASE!

We love this striking 3-color letterpress customization of our Vendage design. Printed in mustard and Mediterranean inks paired with blind deboss, this design also showcases sophisticated calligraphy accents from Bella Figura callligrapher Debi Zeinert. The combination takes a very modern design and makes it incredibly elegant and chic, a twist we can’t help but love.
Our Vendage letterpress wedding invitation design has become one of 2010′s greatest hits. This customization is printed in pool and umber inks and features a horizontal orientation instead of the square featured in the original design. The envelopes are lined in pool to match the pool edge painting and the set is printed on our luxury 2-ply paper. Classic black ink for the envelope printing makes this set sophisticated, a bit whimsical and cool blend of modern and traditional design.
We love these letterpress wedding invitations, a customization of Vendage, one of our new designs for 2010. We printed these in garden and champagne inks and then edge painted them in papaya. The reply card is a 1-color letterpress design printed in garden ink and all of the pieces are tucked inside an envelope featuring a champagne liner. We just adore this combination of bright summery colors paired with the botanical design and sweet little birds, perfect for a warm summer wedding.
