offering custom letterpress wedding invitations and social stationery

---about---
bella design press is the fruition of one girl’s dream to create and see it through to the very end. i am a one-girl show: i design, print and package every card and set of invitations and announcements i make. i print on my vintage vandercook proof press, feeding each sheet by hand. i use both traditional hand set lead and wood type, as well as the more modern process of using adobe illustrator and photopolymer plates.

---letterpress---
letterpress printing is the process by which a raised surface {image or type} is inked. as the paper passes through the cylinder of the press, the pressure of the paper against the raised surface creates a crisp impression into the paper, resulting in a three-dimensional image just waiting for you to run your fingers over it....

Carmela at Bella Design Press was an absolute delight to work with on my wedding invitations. Prior to teaming up with Carmela, I visited a few of the chain paper/invitation stores and was unable to find exactly what I was looking for. It only took a short phone conversation for Carmela to understand my vision and translate it into beautiful, original wedding invitations. She was very receptive to changes and was extremely quick with providing proofs (and by quick I mean I had my first proof only hours after my first conversation with her!). My only regret is that she didn't have her own letterpress when I was completing my invites(she has her own now). I have had the pleasure of seeing some of her letterpress samples and they are absolutely gorgeous. Carmela and Bella Designs will definitely be my "go-to" for all my future stationary needs.
