Lavish New 2012 Letterpress Wedding Stationery from Bella Figura
Not so long ago, I wrote a post extolling the beauty of the Luxurious Letterpress Wedding Stationery from Bella Figura, so just imagine my joy (I was quite literally and unabashedly jumping – poor Mr E) when the lovely Erica, from Bella Figura, asked if I would like to help them launch the exciting new additions to their range!
It’s hard to believe it is possible to improve on perfection but having just had my first peek, I can safely say the inspired designers and production team at Bella Figura have surpassed themselves! Take a glimpse at these……
Just a few of my favourites…… actually, that’s not even half of my favourites – there are SO many fab new designs!
Bella Figura are predicting 2 major Stationery trends for 2012, the first being Calligraphy.
Opulent script is lovingly caressed by regal scrollwork reminiscent of natural botanical tendrils in the glamorous Revival Calligraphy design.
Hayes Calligraphy is lavish and will steel the show entirely if you let it, what with their sensual curves and positively regal letterpress splendor.
And blending both modern and vintage hand calligraphy, the timeless Bristol letterpress invitation is truly adaptable to a diverse range of wedding styles.
They’ve added 6 new calligraphy styles in total, including the modern Mitty calligraphy, and the elegant Royal Hand calligraphy.
The other trend is Metallics, which will be huge in 2012 for invitations, and Bella Figura now offers foil stamping as well as foil edging in 12 brilliant foil colors.
Regal and sophisticated, the dazzling Royal Night design will cast a spell of fanciful elegance onto any modern fairytale wedding.
The stylish and dazzling Divya range with its beautiful floral design.
Or the artistic and ornate Amadore Antique, which are perfect for a formal wedding with posh details.
Add foil edging to the edge of any card for sophisticated flair – go traditional foil in gold, silver and copper, or more daring in fuchsia, indigo, forest and teal.
New floral designs include the oh so pretty Romantic Floral – a ring of flowers blossoming with sweet bohemian enchantment.
Floral Wreath, with bold blooms, is the perfect wedding suite for spring and summer weddings.
Peonies are the quintessential vintage bloom and the Royal Peony suite is full of pretty blossoms and elegant vintage charm.
Delambre is full of vintage flourish and flair, with it’s delicate floral design.
Or the fresh and funky Sweet Daisy would be ideal for a retro, 1960s wedding.
Conservatory offers Botanical letterpress perfection, inspired by leaves, branches and the natural world.
And in the Rococo Elegance suite, a unique blend of architecturally inspired ornamentation and botanical whimsy creates a chic classic design with a playful and romantic spirit.
Picture an artistic and sophisticated backyard wedding loaded with hand made touches and a crafty diy feel for the Dash design.
Rustic Jolene is prettily rustic, tender and infinitely charming.
One of the things I love most about Bella Figura is that everything about their Stationery is customisable – change your ink, change the text, change the fonts, resize illustrations, multiply artwork, reorient type, change the occasion, adjust the illustrations, add a monogram or add a motif from their new motif library. Everything about their designs can be changed!
And with the introduction of the oh so cute Sweet Heart range they have gone one step further – for a whimsical work of letterpress art, send designer Carolynn Giordano a photo of you and your betrothed and she will create a quirky likeness!
Just the most adorable suite of wedding stationery I have EVER seen!
These designs and Bella Figura‘s full 2012 Collection, alongside their existing designs, is available to peruse on their website from today – and they are impossible not to love.
