Bella Figura Design Contest Honoree – Coastal Camilla by Gus & Ruby Letterpress

We can’t tell you how much we love working with Gus and Ruby Letterpress in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. It’s just too much!  We were just tickled when they submitted this order pairing our new sea-side ink with our Camilla design by Jamie Lea Bertsh. Samantha from Gus and Ruby let us in on the vision behind this unique customization:

“Rachel & David wanted a design that showcased their love of the Maine coast (their wedding location) without being absolutely literal or obvious.  The outline of the Maine coast mixed with the funky graphic “wave” pattern representing the ocean set the tone perfectly! The oceanic blue/green ink really spoke to this couple and their coastal venue while the whimsical calligraphy and abstract pattern added a level of fun and playfulness to the whole piece.”

This nautical customization of our Camilla design was a 2012 Bella Figura design contest honoree

The A5 sized reply and reception cards alternate layouts so that each card looks fresh and unique. We particularly like how the extra touch of hand calligraphy on the reception card makes the reception location stand out. We love the nautical details in this suite and the creativity that inspired this gorgeous outcome. Congrats, ladies!
