Check out this great post on Weddingbee by Cyd, a Bella bride who visited our upstate New York letterpress shop recently to plan for her own wedding invitations. Looking for more glimpses of what goes on in a real letterpress print shop? Check out our cool letterpress music video featuring all that is good and beautiful about our presses, and also this other great video of our print shop, made by professional wedding videographer Luke Walker. And yes, we love visitors.
Check out this very cool video about….our letterpress print shop! The video comes from Luke Walker Photography, one of the best wedding photographers (and videographers it turns out too!) out there. We met Luke back in 2006, when he lived nearby in the Finger Lakes and (gorgeously and beautifully) photographed the weddings for two of our Bella couples. (You can see Luke’s photos from Megan & Matt’s Aurora, NY wedding here) Luke visited our print shop a little while ago with his video equipment in tow, and it was a true pleasure getting to chat with him over the afternoon. Thanks for making the trip out to Syracuse, Luke, to see Bella Figura! (Want to see more letterpress printing videos right now? Check this one out too….)
Watch our letterpress wedding invitation Duet be printed on Bella Figura’s cool antique Heidelberg Windmill letterpresses in this just-released video — filmed, edited, and produced by us. Of course, the usual printing process of wedding invitations takes all day — or takes days, depending on the size of an invitation suite. But thanks to some fancy editing, this movie runs just over three minutes. Next up: our 2 hour letterpress feature-length film? Our artisan 10 hour mini-series? We’ll keep you posted.
