Our Bella Figura Letterpress Wedding Invitations

At long last, I am finally going to share with you our beautiful letterpress wedding invitations from the one and only Bella Figura. When you’re surrounded by incredible letterpress invitations every day (because I work at Bella Figura, for those who do not know) deciding on your own becomes incredibly difficult. After a couple of months worth of debate, literally, we decided on Keswick, a 7″ square size, in mediterranean and pale gray inks with mediterranean envelope liners. The entire process was incredibly exciting – including hanging out with our printer, Carrie, as she set up the press check – but nothing topped the day I finally got to hold them in my hands. I love love love how they turned out and we will certainly be having a set framed soon.

And, of course, no invitation is truly complete without fabulous calligraphy. Our envelopes were addressed by Bella Figura’s master calligrapher, the incomparable Debi Zeinert of The Blooming Quill. She hand-mixed the ink to perfectly match the mediterranean blue of our invitations. The end result was absolutely amazing.

What do you think?  Are you as proud of your own invitations as I am of mine?  I didn’t want to let them go to put them in the mail!
