Melissa and Alexander worked with Papel New York to create these New York inspired letterpress wedding invitations. Our Bright Lights design served as the diving off point for this set. Hand-sketched illustrations of the city skyline carried through added a playful yet appropriate design element to the suite. Their reply postcard with a brownstone motif nodded to their Brooklyn venue location. The couple kept their suite clean in Black letterpress ink with digitally printed envelopes also in Black to coordinate. Finally, the skyline on the envelope gave guests a glimpse into what’s to come inside the envelope!

We worked with our friends at Ipanema Press to create these modern silver foil Bar Mitzvah invitations for Jake’s big day. Our No. 10 panel became the canvas for this typography based layout. The Bella Blue backdrop allowed the Silver Shine foil as well as Jake’s name to pop off the page. They kept the reply card clean in Navy letterpress ink with a reply envelope coordinating in Bella Blue. Lastly, the envelope liner captured the New York skyline in a sketchy style to keep the set playful while still sophisticated.

We had the pleasure of working with Aviva and Evan on their New York City themed day-of wedding stationery based on our Bright Lights design. They incorporated classic New York icons like the Statue of Liberty, the Staten Island Ferry and the Brooklyn Bridge, all illustrated by designer Courtney Jentzen. We digitally printed both their double-sided ceremony programs and personalized escort/place cards to coordinate with their wedding invitations that were printed in the same palette and design. Thanks to our team at Bella Figura NYC!

Our Bright Lights design is popular with couples looking for urban-inspired foil and letterpress wedding invitations to compliment their NYC venue.

We welcomed illustrator Courtney Jentzen to the Bella Figura family last year and boy are we glad we did – her fun, whimsical style has been a welcome addition to our lineup of designs. Courtney’s Bright Lights invitation design is an ode to all things New York, featuring hand-illustrated landmarks like the Brooklyn Bridge, the Staten Island Ferry and a Brooklyn brownstone – seen here on the letterpress invitations for Jocelyn’s big city graduation celebration.
