Bella Figura

Get Started

Work with us directly, or work with a dealer

We’ve been building beautiful long-distance relationships with our brides for years now, and our wedding invitation clients come to us from all over the world. Since we’re an artisan letterpress shop, you’ll notice our care in our ultra-attentive customer service and in our drop-dead gorgeous printing, whether it be letterpress, foil stamping, or digital printing. We never let our clients down.

We’d love to meet you in person, too!  Bella Figura has a location in New York City where you can view our work in person and work 1-on-1 with our own staff to create the invitations of your dreams.

You can work with us directly, or you can see Bella Figura at some of the finest stationery stores around the world. Our dealers are friendly and passionate experts who will help you choose—and customize!—your dream invitation. They’ll walk you through the ordering process, and they’ll give you design and wedding invitation wording advice. If you work directly with a dealer, they’ll coordinate all of your ordering information with us. Pricing is the same, whether you work with a dealer or directly with us.

Here’s how to place a custom order for your wedding invitations. (You may want to review what services we offer our customers, too.)

Order samples of your favorite designs.

Samples are $7 each. Not sure what design to choose? We can help.

Fall in love with a design. Place your order.

You can customize your chosen design by choosing your favorite inks and fonts, and adding embellishments like corner rounding, edge painting, envelope lining, die-cutting, colored envelopes, and more.

You can find pricing for many of our offerings by clicking the Quote button on the sample page.  If you don’t see a Quote button, don’t worry!  We’re always happy to help you with pricing.  Please email for pricing help.

To order, either click through the quote tool on your selected sample to send us your order or just email us directly at with details of what you’re interested in ordering.  Either way, you’ll hear back from us to confirm all the details and move your order along. You can choose to schedule a design consultation with one of our designers during the ordering process if you’d like.
