{Papier Tuesday} Bella Figura

I’m late, I know.

My new work out and schedule is putting me on my butt. Literally.

box I did have to blog about a fabulous  invite company that I am swooning over. Bella Figura has been on my list of beautiful invites for a long time, but I recently received a GORGEOUS box of samples from them that has made me their number one fan.

bellafigurapink I am so big on romance– but this takes it to a whole new level for me. It’s almost like a vintage romance. Letterpress is soon becoming the new black among couture invitations. Bella Figura uses cast-iron presses on 100% thick cotton paper exclusively made for them by a historic European paper mill. As their letter to me said, “Letterpress is a historic way of printing, like engraving: it’s both time-intensive and timeless”. The work is beautiful– I couldn’t help feeling like I had traveled though time and was reading a love note.

What’s even better is that their paper is made form reclaimed fibers. But Bella Figura’s green efforts don’t just stop there, they are 100% wind-powered and carbon neutral. They also donate 1% of their sales to environmental causes by 1% for the Planet.

The Bella Figura print shop also offers binding, calligraphy, edge painting, die-cutting and assembly of custom pocketfolds and enclosures, duplexing, double-sided printing and color matching using the Pantone Matching System.

Andrea, thank you SO much for allowing me to experience Bella Figura first hand. I am truly enamored.

This little card was adhered to the front of a beautiful chocolate envelope that held a few duplexed cards. It was beautiful! Here are some of the pieces that came in my samples kit. It consisted of coasters (which had the couple’s name and wedding date on one side and a signature drink recipe on the other), invitations, menus, and other cards. So swoon worthy.
