blind debossed wedding invitations with a pop of red

Marissa and Franklin worked with our Bella Figura Brooklyn store to create their blind debossed wedding invitations. Inspired by Link, large symbols added an overall texture without any ink to the design. They chose Brandon as a complementary font to keep the type modern and clean. The reply card coordinates with the invitation also using black and blind deboss elements. The Currant outer envelope adds a pop of color to this otherwise neutral color palette. A copper metallic envelope liner added a touch of shimmer to complete the suite.

blind debossed gray bat mitzvah invitations

We worked with PS Paper to create these blind debossed gray Bat Mitzvah invitations for Davis. Inspired by Sweet Christine, they customized the design by using our Light Gray paper. They opted for a clean sans serif font for the entirety of the design rather than including any script accents. Bronze Shine foil shined brightly on the Light Gray paper throughout each piece in the set. The suite included a corresponding reply card and party card. These particular pieces did not include the debossed pattern but used the honeycomb pattern in a different way with foil. Finally, the envelope liner in our Pearse pattern brought in another geometric element to the suite.

silver shine foil invitations with blind deboss accents

Union Street Papery helped us bring these silver shine foil invitations with blind deboss accents to life. The typography in silver shine foil framed the blind debossed quarter. Bembo kept everything legible while a script font added a softer touch to this otherwise clean design. The Bella Black paper allowed the foil to pop and shine brightly. Whereas the Blind Deboss captured the intricacies within the quarter design. The envelope liner used a supplied pattern to add some color to these silver shine foil invitations. Finally, a vellum gatefold also uses the pattern from the envelope liner to tie the set together.

botanical blind deboss wedding invitations with foil accents

Becky and Raymond worked with Disenos Personalizados to create the botanical blind deboss wedding invitations. They paired the botanical motif with typography that is justified to the bottom left corner. This allowing space for the textured motif to spread across the invitation. The name of the bride and groom printed in Platinum Shine created a metallic pop while surrounded by Desert letterpress. Finally, the set contains a metallic sand envelope liner to keep the overall color palette consistent in its neutrality.

delicate blind debossed floral wedding invitations for Mexico wedding

We printed these three color floral wedding invitations for the Mexico wedding of Nikki and Albert. Our Penelope design served as inspiration and the modern palette of black and tawny foil was highlighted by the blind debossed floral pattern that accented each piece. The same floral motif was used as a custom foil pattern printed over a flood of french vanilla ink. We printed their reception pieces, too – from the ceremony programs to the menus, place cards and favor tags.

Wedding invitations inspired by popular Brooklyn wedding venues

We are so excited to share that our Bella Figura studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn has been officially reopened! To celebrate, we are sharing four designs that were inspired by popular wedding venues in the area. If you are looking to make an appointment at our Greenpoint studio, you can do so through our online booking tool here! Below you will find some more details about the inspiration that helped bring these Brooklyn designs to life:

Verdant

The rustic, vintage appeal of the Greenpoint Loft set the tone for our Verdant design. The suite features illustrations that reflect different parts of the venue. The Greenpoint water tower can be found on the reply card, specifically chosen for its unique aesthetic that is visible from all points of the neighborhood. The skyline was incorporated within the suite as a draw from the rooftop view of the Greenpoint Loft. 

Wedding invitations inspired by popular Brooklyn wedding venues
The Verdant suite features Stone letterpress ink on our white Bella Smooth Cotton paper. The set features a vellum belly-band with the skyline printed in Stone digital ink. The envelope liner printed in Stone and Mineral adds a modern flair.

Esme

The Box House Hotel inspired the design of our Esme suite. Stunning skyline views can be found at this particular wedding venue which are reflected within the design. Clean, line illustrations can be found throughout such as special touches like a taxi motif along with a small venue illustration of the Box House Hotel on the reception card.  

Wedding invitations inspired by popular Brooklyn wedding venues
The Esme suite features Black letterpress ink as well as Platinum Shine foil printed on our bright White Bella Cotton paper. A black outer envelope keeps everything together with a geometric envelope liner pattern printed in Black, Cinder and Pale Gray digital ink. 

Vale

The William Vale venue set the tone for our Vale design. Known for its sweeping views near the water and architecturally distinct nature, this venue required an invitation suite that matched the scenery. Our Bella Royal paper echoed the nautical surrounding of the venue with an envelope liner to represent the architectural lines of the building.

The Vale design is printed in White Matte foil on our Bella Royal paper with Blind Deboss accents on the reverse to create texture and interest. A white envelope paired with a Royal envelope liner tied everything together from the inside out. 

Kent

Giando on the Water looks out to expansive views of the beautiful skyline right on the water. The Kent design was created to mimic the venue’s elegant aesthetic. We kept the design simplistic yet intriguing to look at with touches of Brooklyn to be found throughout.  

Wedding invitations inspired by popular Brooklyn wedding venues
The Kent design was printed in Antique Gold letterpress on our Bella Cotton ivory paper with Gold Matte foil edging. All additional insert cards carried Antique Gold letterpress on each as well. An envelope liner of a map of Brooklyn added vintage appeal to the overall suite. 

colorful cortes inspired letterpress invitations made for a Mexico wedding

Geena and Zackary worked with our team and Union Street Papery to create these colorful cortes inspired letterpress invitations. They used blind deboss accents on the top and the bottom of the design to create a subtle, yet whimsical impact. The insert cards also carried the theme from the invitation, but with unique accents of their own to set them apart. The digitally printed envelope liner tied all the colors of the suite together. We have no doubt this wedding was one to remember!
