If our array of calligraphy letterpress wedding invitations didn’t tip you off, we’re big time calligraphy fans around here. There is just something so pretty about hand lettered calligraphy when it’s letterpress printed on our cotton paper. In this case, it’s our Modern Calligraphy design printed in navy ink and paired with an envelope boasting a cheerful fuchsia liner. It’s the perfect blend of traditional and modern elements, yet so simple and sophisticated. We just can’t get enough.
Our Victoria Calligraphy design, penned exclusively for us by renowned calligrapher Sarah Hanna, is one of seven new calligraphy letterpress wedding invitations we introduced with our 2010 collection. The opportunity to print this for the first time for one of our Bella Figura clients was an absolute joy. This couple chose classic black ink for the letterpress invitation itself and opted for a modern punch of color in our Tiffany Blue ink for the reply card insert. We love how this set turned out and just can’t get enough of Sarah’s beautiful work.
The classic beauty of our Deveril letterpress wedding invitation has long made it a favorite with couples and it’s easy to see why. It’s elegant, chic and its effortless simplicity really allows the beauty of letterpress to shine. This version of Deveril put a modern twist on a classic favorite by opting for our bright red cardinal ink and our 7″ square size. In this instance, the bride wanted something with a bit of an edge and the groom wanted something traditional so this take on Deveril was their compromise. We think it’s fabulous!
