Cynthia @ Bella Figura's Picture
Cynthia Converse, Syracuse, NY Vendor: Invitations Website: Bella Figura About Me: Bella Figura is a wind-powered, eco-friendly letterpress shop committed to the fine artisanship of letterpress printing and the environment. Along with our sister company, Smock, we print our wedding invitations and stationery on only the finest luxury cotton and bamboo papers to ensure the most beautiful of prints in sight and to the touch, while working tirelessly to do our little piece for the good of the earth. We are hopelessly in love with our abundant collection of cast iron presses, farmer's markets, fall in Upstate NY, creating beautiful heirlooms for our brides, businesses that do good for the world, calligraphy, spending time in nature, contributing to the greater letterpress community, our rambling studios in a converted warehouse turned artist's haven, and our two year old in residence. Turning invitations into art on paper while dedicating ourselves to the environment is not what we do, it's who we are.
About Cynthia @ Bella Figura

When you’re surrounded by incredible letterpress creations every day, choosing your own letterpress wedding invitations becomes difficult -really, really difficult. There were moments during that time when I joked about wanting to send each of our guests a different invitation, just so I could see all of my different ideas in print. After much debate, with the help of our amazing client coordinator, Tiffany, and our equally amazing graphic designer, Beth Ann, I was able to settle on our Keswick design in Mediterranean and pale gray inks. The entire process was incredibly exciting, but nothing topped the day I finally got to hold them in my hands. They’re absolutely stunning and you can bet we’ll have a set framed to hang in our house after the wedding. :-)

Keswick Letterpress Ceremony Card and Reply Card

Because we’re having an unusual two-day wedding with a private ceremony on Friday and a larger reception on Saturday, our main invitation was printed for Saturday’s reception. To let Friday guests know they were invited to the ceremony, we included a small ceremony card insert with the details as to the ceremony time and location. Reply cards sent to those guests provided space to reply for both the Friday and Saturday events. All of the pieces were printed in 2-color letterpress, with the exception of the ceremony card, which was a 1-color letterpress card.

Envelopes with Hand Calligraphy

Of course, no invitation is complete without beautiful hand calligraphy. Our envelopes were addressed by our amazing calligrapher, Debi Zeinert of The Blooming Quill. She even hand-mixed the ink to perfectly match the Mediterranean blue of our invitations and printed envelopes. Not only was I stunned at how amazing the envelopes looked, but our guests are still raving about how exciting it was to get them in the mail. Now that right there, that’s a good way to kick off a wedding celebration if you ask me!

With that said, I’m off to get married – I can’t wait to share photos and more details when I’m back! :grin:

I love it when outer envelope calligraphy matches the style on an invitation!
