Bella Figura is at it again!  The awesome letterpress company introduced Smock– it’s sister company, with invites and card designed by Amy Graham Stigler. 

Just like Bella Figura, Smock is sustainably letterpressed on bamboo paper in the Syracuse, New York print shop. After years in the making, Smock is wedding invitations, social notes, thank you’s, party invites, place cards, gift tags, gift wrap, and more. I thought that using bamboo was an interesting concept.  And so does Bella Figura and Smock.  They say

Why use bamboo? Bamboo is a truly sustainable and renewable resource. It also happens to make (hands down) the prettiest paper out there. Bamboo grows without pesticides or fertilizer and is non-GMO. In addition, bamboo is the fastest growing plant on the planet; it generates up to 35% more oxygen than hardwood trees; it absorbs four times as much carbon as hardwood; and it can detoxify wastewater and improve soil quality. We partnered with a 500-year-old European paper mill to develop this fine artisan paper just for us, and we’re proud to be the first print shop in the U.S. to offer printing on a luxury bamboo paper

  • Love Bella Figura! And now Smock as well. I’m a Syracuse local so I’ve had them letterpress some of my own designs. Not only is their stuff pretty, but they do excellent technical print work too!
