We printed these Monet-inspired invitations for a garden party hosted by The Baltimore Museum of Art. Our friends at Papers Plus helped them envision an alternate layout, keeping the design close to the sample with just a few alterations to art placement. The bright, floral-inspired hues made the perfect introduction to a spring-time garden soiree.
Our friends at Penny Post in Alexandria, Virginia helped this couple design their wedding invitations with a mash-up of two of our most popular designs – Dendria and Ichabod. Dendria’s happy floral pattern bordered Gold Matte foil stamped text while metallic gold thread tied a vellum tag that listed the reply and website details. We die cut the tag in our Franklin shape to mimic the outline of the monogram cartouche inspired by our Ichabod design. More Dendria florals graced the envelope liner for a playful yet formal presentation perfect for a summer-time affair.
Even holiday cards can provide wedding invitation inspiration when some small but impactful updates are made to the design. Since all of our designs are customizable for any event, browse any of our galleries to find motifs, fonts, ink and foil pairings and more to build your own invitations for your celebration.
The Thompson holiday card features a rustic wreath and monogram and a stylish diecut shape. Updating to a wedding invitation is a simple change to layout and language with the addition of a geometric liner for visual texture.
Gordon spreads good cheer with an organic, watercolor stripes in a beach palette. Changing up the placement of the art and typography along with the addition of a sunny yellow liner makes for a welcoming invitation to a seaside celebration.
Sometimes no design changes are necessary – just updating the size and language and some tweaks to paper and liner color are sufficient to change an elegant holiday card into an equally elegant wedding invitation. Our Charlton holiday card makes the perfect transition to formal wedding invitation.
We worked with our friends at the Social Type to create these Holly and Goldenrod letterpress wedding invitations. Our Shirley sample set the stage for their design inspiration. The vibrant yellow ink popped off the page and perfectly paired with the Holly green accents found throughout the set. Their square details card printed in Holly letterpress added interest while paired with a patterned envelope liner to match.

Our friends at Union Street Papery in San Francisco, California transformed our Mitra design into a contemporary invitation for an evening dinner. The Mitra liner pattern was used as a border in Meadow Shine foil to compliment the formal text in Vine letterpress. Our Franklin die cut shape was used on the reply card as well as the outline on the invitation. Holly envelopes and a solid Clover-colored envelope liner carried on the green palette.
Inspired by our Estate V.2 design, we worked with Broadway Paper to create these invitations for Lilian and Elliott. They chose Olive letterpress wedding invitations on our Bella Handmade paper to set the tone for their June wedding. They paired the invitation with a matching reply card to keep everything consistent throughout the suite. Our Primrose envelope liner added a vintage, rustic feel to the overall design.
We worked with our friends at Union Street Papery to create these Sea Mist letterpress wedding invitations. Inspired by our Neville V.2 design, this couple made the design their own through a different color palette to best fit their venue’s location. Their Pool letterpress details card added texture and overall interest to the set with a sueded look. As the finishing touch, their custom envelope liner printed in Sea Mist and Cinder digital inks tied everything together.

Thanks to the help of Penny Post, we were able to create these Dark Gray and Deep Blue letterpress wedding invitations inspired by our Mila design. They chose a cool color palette with Dark Gray letterpress ink for the typography and Light Gray envelopes to pair alongside it. To add a hint of color to their set, they incorporated a Pastel Blue reply envelope and a Deep Blue digitally printed envelope liner in our Minett pattern. To finish their invitation off, they added a bevel painted in Cinder.

We worked with The Dandelion Patch to help bring these gold matte foil wedding invitations to life. Inspired by our Blyth design, they customized their invitation to have a similar intricate yet regal flair. They used our Plum paper as the backdrop which allowed the gold foil to pop off the page. The couple opted for a foil edged bevel as well. Finally, they paired a matching reply card printed in Plum letterpress ink to keep the suite consistent.
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
Our baby announcement gallery might not be the first place you look for wedding invitation inspiration, but these three customizations may change that. Since all of our designs are customizable, we can update any of them to create the perfect invitation for any celebration.
Our Anakin design blends ultra modern typography with our Gray paper and dramatic blind embossing. Transformed as a wedding invitation it feels a touch more elegant when paired with a Silver foil striped envelope liner on coordinating Gray paper.
As a baby shower invitation, Charletto is playful and sweet. By updating the color palette to soft, moody blues and greens the vibe feels more formal without losing the fun, youthful feel of the original design.
Did you know that any of our designs can be used to inspire invitations for any occasion? Here are three Mitzvah designs reimagined as invitations for wedding celebrations.
Our Tressa design is bright and cheerful, perfect for a joyful Bat Mitzvah celebration. Reimagined as a wedding invitation its cool and contemporary in Bronze foil on Black paper. The envelope liner introduces the watercolor artwork printed in Fawn ink, adding subtle sophistication.
Fedora draws inspiration from modern, tropical design. For a softer, more romantic feel more appropriate for a wedding, we printed Rose Gold foil on our Light Gray paper and used a palette of soft pink inks to print a breezy palm pattern on the envelope liner.
Rich and dramatic florals are the focal point of our Adeline design. For a more modern, typographic feel we focused on the splatter pattern and added classic typography in Opaline Shine over a digitally printed, night sky-inspired ombre.
