Save the dates and invitations
If save the dates and invitations are the most important components of your stationery trousseau, you can easily take advantage of the 6+ printed piece promotion and still wow your guests with stunning stationery and stylish design. Not all weddings call for programs and menus, so don’t feel like you have to have them if they aren’t part of your stationery must-haves. These pieces will set the tone for your wedding and give your guests a preview of the celebration to come.

Traditional, formal invitation set
If you are hosting a very traditional, very formal wedding and want your stationery to reflect that, consider this combination of the most necessary pieces. Along with your invitation and printed outer envelope, a reply card and reply envelope are the most formal way to request a response from your guests. Keep your reception details separate from the invitation by including it on its own card (you’ll note whether or not there is a dress code on this card, as it’s most formal not to include that on your invitation). A direction card will help guests make their way to your ceremony and celebration.

To carry your wedding stationery style on the through the big day, be sure guests have a ceremony program detailing the who’s who of your wedding party and a rundown of the ceremony. At the reception, direct them to their seats with stylish place cards and get their mouths watering with menus detailing what is to come. Give them something fun (and functional) to take home with letterpress or foil stamped coasters. And don’t forget you’ll need to thank everyone for joining you on your special day. What better way than with coordinating thank you cards and envelopes?

Invitations, ceremony and beyond
If you’ve fallen in love with letterpress printing and want to get the most for your money, this combination will stretch your stationery style from the pre-wedding invitations all the way to the post-wedding thank yous. In addition to your invitations and printed envelopes, opt for a reply postcard (less formal but still effective). Include a program so your guests can follow along during your ceremony, and have coordinating thank you cards and envelopes to send out thanking them for their presence (and presents) on your big day.

Destination invitation set
Destination weddings often call for additional details to be included in the invitation package – your guests will need to know how to get there, where to stay and where to play, and they’ll be looking to you to help them prepare. Our pocketfolds are the perfect enclosure to keep all of these details organized for your guests – and they provide another place to showcase your wedding style. Letterpress print on them – foil stamp on them – or do both! Include a card (double sided if necessary) that gives all of the wedding details – like hotel accommodations, directions to the venue and rehearsal dinner and brunch locations. The pocket allows you to include additional cards if necessary, like maps to local hotspots or menus from the best places to grab a bite. If your destination wedding is an intimate affair with just the closest of family and friends, ask them to reply via your wedding website or email address to eliminate the need for the reply envelope.

Here’s the fine print: all pieces need to be printed at the same time, and pieces that are already discounted (like free favor cards) don’t count toward the 6 pieces.
Save the dates are a helpful resource for your guests and a great way to set the tone for your upcoming wedding. With 325+ designs (and counting!) we have something for everyone – and if you don’t see something that is perfect for your wedding, we can work with you until you’ve found it. With hundreds of designs and limitless combinations of ink colors and embellishments, we thought it might be helpful to show some ideas and options fit for any budget – from conservative to wildly extravagant.
We can’t get enough of the dazzle and flash of foil stamping – but truth be told, the look and feel of letterpress printing on our luxurious cotton paper is hands down our favorite. Just one color – dark or light, pale or bright – can be perfect for your save the dates. In addition to being more budget friendly than multiple ink colors and foil stamping, choosing one letterpress ink gives you a bit more flexibility if you haven’t settled on a color palette for the wedding.

To further personalize your save the dates and make them truly unique to you, consider adding hand calligraphy from one of our insanely talented calligraphers. We have lots of styles available from the traditional to the whimsical to every style in between. Contact them to address your envelopes in the coordinating calligraphy style for the ultimate presentation.

With over 60 letterpress inks and nearly 20 metallic foil colors, the options to customize your save the dates in your wedding colors are virtually endless. Print in two letterpress colors, two foil colors, or opt for one of each – our letterpress inks and foil colors pair perfectly together.

Love letterpress printing and/or foil stamping but having trouble working it into your budget? Try downsizing your save the date to our petite A5 size (the size of a standard reply card). What it lacks in size it more than makes up for in sheer sweetness. There are no rules when it comes to save the dates, so don’t let the smaller size fool you – these can be just as formal and just as traditional as their larger counterparts.

For the ultimate splurge in save the dates, you can’t go wrong with foil stamping, letterpress printing and diecut shapes. Combining two or more of our printing options and embellishments will wow your guests and set the tone for your ultra modern or over the top, glamorous wedding.

Maybe you’re trying to stick to a set budget but really want letterpress invitations? Maybe you just love things that come in small-ish packages? Either way, an awesome solution is to have us print your invites in our A6 size instead of our larger standard invitation sizes (like A7, SQ7, or F8). Not only will you keep the costs down on your printing, but you’ll also save on postage as well – and look how sweet these little guys are! They’re based on the standard String Calligraphy design, but printed in our A6 size that we typically reserve for save the dates (so these invites were priced just like save the dates would be). For a full list of the sizes we have available, head on over to our size list.

Our Windsor letterpress wedding invitation design is one of those you could call an oldie but a goodie. We just love this design and so do our clients! This customization is a Windsor letterpress save the date printed in yarrow and taupe inks with typography inspired by our Meadow design. Printed on our smaller reply card size, it’s also a great way to keep letterpress budget-friendly.
Incorporating calligraphy into your letterpress wedding invitations strikes us as one of the season’s best wedding trends. Actually, calligraphy has been a popular design element for, oh, several hundred (or thousand?) years, but we’ve been seeing calligraphy a whole lot in our favorite wedding invitations this year. Though script fonts are great, nothing – absolutely nothing! – compares with hand lettered calligraphy, where every single letter is a totally unique work of art. Bella Figura’s calligrapher is the amazingly talented Debi Zeinert, who has been making our letterpress brides so happy for years now.
So for the next few posts, we’ll focus on some really gorgeous calligraphy invitations. Let’s start with this Nonpareil invitation – it’s honestly one of the prettiest things we have ever seen! And what an inspired customization too (check out the Nonpareil original invitation here). It’s true, we’re letter junkies over here, but check out the calligraphy accents: look at that A! The M! Just lovely. Clients can choose from about 10 different styles of calligraphy, but this style (the Clermont style) feels perfect: modern, elegant, with a little bit of cool. Also note that both the reply information AND reception information is on the invitation itself – it’s eco (less paper!) and keeps cost down too (no reply card/envelope/reception card to worry about!). Colors are black & fuchsia – so perfect!
We think it’s smart to do the thank you note and coaster in 1 color, to keep costs down. If you’re trying to save money, keep the 2 color design for the invitation, and do the rest of the pieces in 1 color.
