rose gold foil stamped Shabbat dinner invitations

Many thanks to our friends at Heirloom Paper Company for their help in customizing these rose gold foil stamped Shabbat dinner invitations for Katherine and Zachary. Our Splash design served as inspiration, with the handdrawn lines from the save the date blind debossed on the invitation to coordinate with the liner in the same pattern.

letterpress + gold foil art deco wedding invitations

Our friends at Village Invites helped Eve and Adam customize our Odeon design to create these art deco wedding invitations for their wedding at The University Club. They drew inspiration from pieces throughout the suite to take full advantage of our customization options (like using the save the date design for the invitation and table cards) and brought in the gatsby liner pattern as a motif on additional suite pieces.  Black letterpress and gold matte foil made for a glamorous palette that paired perfectly with the design and the venue.

botanical inspired letterpress personal stationery

We think any and all correspondence can (and should) be as lovely as it is functional. Juliana and Christopher’s letterpress personal stationery is a testament to that belief. Botanical inspired motifs, hand calligraphed monikers and a neutral palette of camel and blind deboss create an ethereal look that is both beautiful and practical.

Irving invitations featured on 100 Layer Cake

Stephanie Yonce Photography and the ladies at Glint Events put together an amazing team of vendors for this feminine forest wedding inspiration shoot that was featured earlier this week on 100 Layer Cake! The shoot featured an interesting mix of vintage and modern design elements, with our Irving invitation suite helping to set the tone. A 70’s inspired forest ceremony backdrop and soft shades of pink and peach drove the unique color palette, while both modern geometric decorative elements and quirky vintage pieces helped pull the entire look together. Be sure to head over to 100 Layer Cake to see more images from this shoot!

Illustrated birth announcements for baby girl

Emery’s family sent these illustrated birth announcements to introduce her to their nearest and dearest. They used personal touches like illustrations of their adorable pups and a cartouche featuring Emery’s monogram to compliment the hand lettering and dainty floral liner. Our charleston shape die cut mimicked the petal pink ribbon border for yet another sweet touch. Special thanks to our friends at The Scarlet Letter!

National Stationery Show 2016 Recap

We’re back from the 2016 National Stationery Show, where we recently launched our new Flora collection, along with a selection of brand new designs that will be available online soon. We loved having the opportunity to meet with our retailers at both the show and at a special event we held for them at our flagship store in the Upper East Side. Bella Figura calligrapher Sarah Hanna joined us at both the event and in our booth, offering on-the-spot hand calligraphy on keepsake Flora cards.

Bella Figura at the Big Fake Wedding NYC – featured on Ruffled!

Earlier this spring we had a blast meeting with New York brides at the Big Fake Wedding! The Big Fake Wedding is a bridal show alternative complete with an emotional vow renewal ceremony, light bites and a dance-party reception. “Wedding guests” are brides- and grooms-to-be who get to truly experience the wedding vendors in action – fun, right?! We customized our Art Paint design by Mariel Mirra for the occasion, and created a colorful, digitally printed suite with gold foil stamped accents to coordinate with the vibrant color palette used for the entire event. Here’s a peek – be sure to visit Ruffled and Black Sheep Bride to see more images from the event!

2016 Together Dinner featured by Cottage Hill

Earlier this year, we partnered with the team at Zimmerman to create save the dates and invitations for their annual Together Dinner. The Together Dinner is an intimate celebration centered around community and empowerment that’s hosted each year by Jessica Zimmerman. To help kick off the event, we created digitally printed save the dates featuring our Josephine design by Ellie Snow. For the letterpress invitations and menus, we incorporated custom, hand-drawn artwork from Meredith Mejerle into the design. Here’s a peek at the stationery suite and the event, which was featured recently by Cottage Hill

rose wedding invitations with hand calligraphy and tawny foil

Our Leigha Spring design was the inspiration for Cherisse and Raymond’s rose wedding invitations. Our friends at di’zain loft limited worked with the couple to make some changes to the design – like adding Sarah Hanna’s hand calligraphy, changing the motif to a rose from our library and using tawny matte foil to highlight their cards and envelope liner. They used a well known Scottish phrase on their thank you cards, wishing their guests a long and healthy life.
