Shown here in our black & sea-side letterpress inks, this Gotham (by Erin Jang) suite is a delight. The true uniqueness of this set is within the added heart motif on the invite and the option for guests to reply via the web. The natural woodgrain liner ties everything together beautifully.

From the start the Fugue design by Kamal has captivated us by being so unique. That’s why we are completely smitten by this silvery delight. Our silver matte and silver shine foil inks enhance the cascading design and pops of our sea-side letterpress ink add a trendy splash of color.

This customized Simple Stripes (by Jessica Tierney) invitation suite looks lovely in a combination of our pewter and seaside letterpress inks and our gold matte foil stamping! The bold, metallic shine of the couple’s name in gold matte brings a bit of sparkle to this modern set. The couple chose our smaller #17 card size for their reply cards requesting guests reply via their wedding website. We just love this eco-friendly trend!

Did you know that Bella Figura can letterpress your baby announcements? Well we can! We recently printed these adorable letterpress baby announcements for twins.

We can’t tell you how much we love working with Gus and Ruby Letterpress in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. It’s just too much! We were just tickled when they submitted this order pairing our new sea-side ink with our Camilla design by Jamie Lea Bertsh. Samantha from Gus and Ruby let us in on the vision behind this unique customization:
“Rachel & David wanted a design that showcased their love of the Maine coast (their wedding location) without being absolutely literal or obvious. The outline of the Maine coast mixed with the funky graphic “wave” pattern representing the ocean set the tone perfectly! The oceanic blue/green ink really spoke to this couple and their coastal venue while the whimsical calligraphy and abstract pattern added a level of fun and playfulness to the whole piece.”
The A5 sized reply and reception cards alternate layouts so that each card looks fresh and unique. We particularly like how the extra touch of hand calligraphy on the reception card makes the reception location stand out. We love the nautical details in this suite and the creativity that inspired this gorgeous outcome. Congrats, ladies!

This design won an honorable mention in our Bella Figura design competition for 2012. This annual competition recognizes outstanding and inspired designs submitted to us by our beloved dealers.
Our new office favorite is this summery customization of our La Salle (by Ian Koenig) design. If these letterpress wedding invitations look familiar that’s because we previously featured a similar design customization. Now we can see that this whimsical design is even prettier when letterpress printed! We have Danielle from Bells & Whistles in Belmont, Massachusetts to thank for these!
