Bella Figura is a passionate artisan letterpress shop based in Central New York. We print our letterpress and foil stamped invitations the old-fashioned way, using antique cast-iron presses, the best paper, time, patience, perfection, and a whole lot of love. Because we want to make the world a better place, we're a wind-powered, carbon neutral, and eco-friendly letterpress shop, and we donate 1% of sales to environmental causes. We print only on 100% cotton (tree-free) paper that's made exclusively for us in a historic European paper mill. We offer letterpress wedding invitations, letterpress baby announcements, custom invitations, wedding stationery, and more, all customized to fit your style.

Our designers include Amy Graham Stigler, founder of Snow and Graham; Debi Zeinert of The Blooming Quill - an incredible calligrapher with over 25 years of experience; and Kamal Patel, founder of the trendsetting line of stationery & art known as Kamal. Bella Figura's collection includes over 300+ invitation designs from over 30 different designers.

We print our invitations on a luxuriously thick 100% cotton paper, made exclusively for us by a 500-year-old European paper mill; this is the perfect paper to show off a letterpress impression.

We would love to have the opportunity to work with you. Please feel free to contact us by emailing hello@bellafigura.com or by calling 866-699-6040. Happy wedding planning! Read less

I ordered both our save the dates and wedding invitations from Bella Figura. We got the save the dates and they were perfect, so we went ahead with the invites. We worked with Andrea and I was a little unsure about what color ink to use and since we were using an invitation with a lot of color, I wanted it to be right. She recommended one color and I decided to go with another; mistake. But when I got the invitations and the color I chose was wrong, she reprinted them using the right color and rushed the delivery so we could send them out on time. She was fabulous and so sweet! I am so grateful for the customer service and so pleased with how the invitations turned out!!

I really wanted to make a statement and set the tone for our wedding with the invitations, and searched for months to find exactly the right ones. I am very particular. I couldn't find anything just right, but I did see a few invitations at Bella Figura that had components that were exactly what we had in mind. We worked with one of their designers, Lindsy, who helped us combine the elements we loved into the most absolutely prefect invitations. They are more expensive than some other options, yes, but you get what you pay for, and the quality is so far beyond anything else we saw. I adore the wedding suite we ended up with received so many compliments on them from our guests. Thanks, Lindsy!

Gorgeous invitations but even better customer service. My fiance is VERY particular about details and they make the perfect invitation. The entire time we worked with them, they were timely, professional, and extremely helpful. When my fiance wanted different color mockups to compare, they immediately sent them. When we sent a very long description of our design, they got it mostly right on the first try, and they added some additional touches which we loved. We were actually surprised by how professional and helpful they were, and we tend to have very high expectations. I would use Bella Figura exclusively from now on if I were to need more invitations down the road. Definitely recommend to everyone.

Bella Figura has beautiful letterpress stationary! Everything was customized to our tastes from a selected theme and they were so easy to work with through their online forms and during the entire proofing process. Once we received our invitations, all of the colors and extras were exactly as shown in samples and the details came out beautifully!

If you are looking for an immediate way to wow your guests and have something that will be memorable, you should definitely do letterpress invites with Bella Figura! We received so many compliments on our invitation suite and I am glad we have something so beautiful to commemorate our wedding.

Brenda was the designer of our wedding invitations and we worked with Sean to complete our order. I could not have been more happy with the outcome. Brenda even changed part of the design at the last minute. She is incredibly talented, professional, and friendly to work with. The invitations are letterpressed with wind power, printed on tree free paper (100% recycled cotton) with vegetable-oil based ink, on old cast iron presses. They also donate a portion of their profit to a conservation agency of your choice (they give you three to choose from). And will also plant a tree if your request it. I love their Eco-friendly policies and the quality of their work was exactly what I was looking for. Could not have been happier and everyone that I talked to loved them too.

GORGEOUS wedding invites and save the dates....all letter press. We sent out our invites last week and I am getting tons of texts and emails about how beautiful they are. You have to thumb through the website and blog to get ideas but you can customize and pick bits and pieces from all their template to create totally customized pieces. They are pricey but WELL worth it. The designers are very helpful and offer advice, send great proofs to approve before printing. The invites come beautifully packaged, with extreme care and attention to detail. We were very impressed with this company. Highly recommended!

If you're looking for letterpress wedding invitations, look no further. Our wedding invitations came out so gorgeous!

Everyone who I dealt with was very nice. Their pricing was extremely fair for custom work (I provided my own artwork) and the quality is unbelievable. I wish I could upload a picture of the packaging. They came in a fabulous gift box and the invitations were in wrapping paper. I cried when I got the package!

Their quality, service and attention to detail were fantastic. I highly recommend Bella Figura!

What an amazing company! Their designs are so elegant, and the letterpress is incredibly high quality. We got SO many compliments on our invitations ... Their 2-ply paper is so luxurious and memorable. Debi Zeinert's calligraphy is absolutely stunning, we also had her hand address our envelopes and the combination of her calligraphy on the invitation design itself and on the envelopes was amazing. Bella Figura even customized one of their designs for us to include a graphic we provided! Amazing customer service; amazing invitations. I cannot recommend this company more highly.

Their designs offered both a modern look, paired with the classic letterpress detail. They were very attentive in all of our correspondence, making adjustments and sending proofs very quickly, and the entire turnaround took 10 days to receive the final product! They are true artists!

Do not hesitate to skip the local stationary store and work directly with the designers from Bella Figura via the internet and phone. I can't say enough good things about working with Bella Figura online for both my save the dates and wedding invitations. They have perfected the art of exceptional stationary and made the process so easy for very busy people. In addition to always being able to reach the same person on the phone, they have a user friendly chat function on their website, which was perfect for working on the invitations during the day at work! The experience was so much better than going to a stationary shop and having to book mull through numerous books with mediocre salespeople who would have to call the reps at the company for information anyway. The invitations were exactly what I wanted and they handled several modifications very well. Their packaging is beautiful, and they send you samples very quickly. I would recommend ordering the samples so you can know exactly what you are getting. Also, their turnaround time was quite reasonable and I never experienced a delay once.

Paper is very important to me and I knew I wanted letterpress invitations. They did such great work, and these invitations were worth every cent.

I fell (irrationally?) in love with our invitations from Bella Figura. I ordered samples from every possible invitation designer, but knew I couldn't go elsewhere after seeing the quality of design, materials and production of the Bella Figura sample. Once we placed the order, the customer service team was extremely responsive in providing the proofs, resulting revisions and shipping out the actual invitations. I'm a bit of a self-confessed paper geek and these were the only wedding invitations that lived up to what I was hoping for - modern, elegant, luxurious. I would recommend them to anyone seeking beautiful, high quality letterpress invitations.

I really enjoyed working with Tiffany from Bella Figura for my wedding invitations and menus. The quality of their designs and letterpress is by far the best out of all the other letterpress companies I researched. The online process was easy and smooth and the turn-around time is very quick. They offered lots of customizations, including ink color, which was very important to me and ended up being exactly what I wanted. I only wish that they offered flat printing as a cheaper option for brides on a budget since letterpress is a pretty expensive printing method. Fortunately, Bella Figura offers some of the best prices for letterpress, and I guarantee you will not be disappointed!

After I received my box of samples from Bella Figura, I immediately knew I would never be able to settle for anything less. The quality of the paper and the deep letterpress printing was by far the best I'd seen. They were also incredibly easy to work with. When I told them I wanted the "sailboat" design sans sailboat, and in a square format, they weren't fazed a bit. When I saw the proof and asked them to move the waves around a bit (yes, I'm anal), it was no problem. In short, they did everything I asked with no drama, and the end result was better than I imagined.

Yes, letterpress printing is expensive, but Bella is reasonably priced for this style. I also loved that they allowed me to order the invitation pieces a la carte, so I saved a little bit of money but getting envelopes and folders elsewhere (which was sad, but necessary). If you have the budget, you can't go wrong with these guys!

Bella Figura did our wedding invitations, programs and placecards and they were absolutely wonderful from starting the process right through to the finished product! I worked closely with Tiffany and Beth Ann who were very responsive and helpful throughout the process. They were also able to work with a tight deadline on my wedding programs without issue. The finished products were just beautiful! The paper and printing quality is excellent - very rich - and the packaging is the perfect finishing touch. I received complements from many many people - my calligrapher, my guests and even my photographer! I am very excited to check out their sister company Smock for more of my everyday stationary needs. Thank you so much to the team at Bella for contributing so beautifully to our wedding!

We could not have been more pleased with the entire process of working with Bella Figura for my daughter's wedding invitations! I was so afraid when my daughter fell in love with an online vendor for her invitations but was quickly put at ease by the staff at Bella Figura. Everyone from the initial phone call to the constant emails to make sure everything was perfect, were a joy and pleasure. Their letterpress invitations are spectacularly gorgeous, you must order the samples if you are hesitating at all, because when you see th quality you will be thrilled. The texture and weight of the papers were above what we had expected and when the finished products arrived they were so beautifully packaged and so very exciting to open! To say the least, we were overwhelmed by how beautiful they turned out and how fun the whole process was from start to finish. We had so many compliments and questions about our invitations because they truly were a one of a kind statement item that added so much to the anticipation of her wedding. Use Bella Figura without hesitation! Kathleen Buchanan

Bella Figura's invitations are absolutely amazing! Invitations were the hardest part of the wedding planning process for me because I couldn't find anything locally that matched my style. But when I got my samples from Bella Figura, I knew I had found the right place. Everything they do is completely customized - they even moved parts of the design around and added more flowers for me. The paper feels so luxurious and their colors are gorgeous. I got so many compliments on the invitations, many people said they were the most beautiful invitations they had ever received. I loved my invitations so much that I ordered program covers from Bella Figura as well.

Bella Figura has some of the most beautiful original invitations I've ever seen. To boot, they are super eco friendly - running on a wind-powered letterpress, donating money from samples ordered to great causes, using recycled materials, etc.
That was really important to me, but they were beautiful too. My invitations were perfect, they send me proofs in several colors that I asked for and worked w/ me until I was happy and it was perfect. They look so expensive and really don't cost that much more than other invitations. Order a sample and check them out. You also get free shipping + 3 free rounds of proofs (I had more than 3 changes but they weren't that big so they didn't charge me). And you work w/ a real person, not a customer service rep.

My invitations from Bella Figura are by far one of the things I am most proud of about my wedding. I searched many different vendors before finding Bella Figura. The quality and beauty of their product is unmatched by any other vendor I came across. At first it was there unique designs and environmentally conscious operation that attracted me. Once I contacted Bella and spoke with Tiffany I was convinced Bella was right for me and that I was in good hands. The design process was simple and Beth Ann was very helpful as she guided me through the process with ease. At the end Beth Ann created a finished product that was exactly what I wanted and represented my wedding perfectly. From first contact to the delivery of my invitations, my wedding invitation experience was fantastic! The calligrapher that I used through Bella was also amazing and created beautiful work in a very timely manner. Now the only problem is figuring out what else I could use Bella for. Without a doubt, one of my best wedding planning decisions was to use Bella Figura.

My experience with Bella Figura was superb. I worked with a lovely lady, Tiffany who was professional, helpful and delightful to work with. I was able to speak with the artist who designed my gorgeous eco- friendly wedding invitations, and who was very willing to make a few changes that I requested. Tiffany worked with me and suggested smart ways for me to save money which I really appreciated. The invitations were done in the exact time frame that was quoted, and they were BEYOND BEAUTIFUL! When I asked for additional envelopes, bingo they went out in the mail immediately. Everything that Bella Figura does is A - one. Even the packaging of my invitations was fit for royalty, coming in a chocolate brown box with eco packing! . Thank you for all the attention to the details that were taken and for making my experience with Bella Figura remarkably wonderful. I whole heartily recommend Bella Figura!

I'M IN LOVE! ;)

It's been two months since I received my Bella Figura custom printed coasters and I am still blown away by their UNBELIEVABLE SERVICE, and their EXTREMELY PROFESSIONAL, RESPONSIVE AND CREATIVE STAFF who honestly made me feel as though I was the only client that they had to care for!

Who would have ever guessed that not only was I not a paying customer, but that I had won 100 FABULOUS and VERY CHIC custom coasters through a blog that I visit daily, called Southern Weddings (www.swsmag.net). I was immediately contacted by the crew at Bella Figura and most often worked with Tiffany Field, whose DELIGHTFUL ENTHUSIASM paired with my own was a definite match! ;) Both Tiffany and the designer, Beth Ann, were SUCH A PLEASURE to work with, as they seemed to know exactly what I was looking and made me feel as though they were by my side, EVERY STEP OF THE WAY!

From start to finish, the execution of my very small job was handled with such GRACE! Even the way my coasters were shipped...bundled in twine and delicately resting in curly brown paper, placed in a heavy chocolate brown box, which was wrapped with a brown satin ribbon and topped off with a custom printed card...WOW!

I WOULD JUMP AT THE OPPORTUNITY TO WORK WITH BELLA FIGURA AGAIN and I WOULD RECOMMEND THEM TO ANYONE WHO IS LOOKING FOR A PROFESSIONAL TEAM WITH LOTS OF STYLE!

Bella figura set the mood and raised the bar for our destination wedding. Their staff were so patient and understanding. They answered every question i had and even overnighted me a sample just to make the decision making easier. They also helped me stretch a modest budget into luxury invitations and announcements.

I ran into bella figura in the beginning of my six month long research and ended up picking them bc their designs inspired me the most. i even ended up changing our flower arrangements to match the invitation design. we and our guests LOVED the invitations. i love it so much i am framing it and keeping it our room. its such a heartwarming reminder of a most special time.

for all the brides who think they can't afford or doesn't see the value in a letterpress invitations - i highly recommend talking to a bella figura staff and/or getting a sample. i cannot stress enough "first impressions" for your wedding. your invitation is your chance to set the mood and preview your event. bella figura will definitely let your guests know what fun they're in for!

I waited to the last minute to purchase my invitations. Partially because I hadn't really found what I wanted. When we came across Bella Figura, we couldn't help ourselves and had to have them. Their invitations are the most exquisite letterpress designs. They were also very reasonably priced for being of the highest quality paper, unique and original designs, as well as letterpress type. They have a full online store and send you actual samples of the invitations you are interested in. Their proofing process was seamless and very thorough. It was like completely bypassing a store and dealing straight with the maker; WHICH WE DID!! I cannot stress how beautiful they turned out and to this day we still receive compliments on them!

I grew up in upstate NY, so I visited Bella Figura in person - and it was awesome. From start to finish, it was clear I could customize anything, and Jessica and Lindsy worked with me on possible design choices, wording choices, and little tweaks to make all my wedding papers perfect. Although I didn't customize the invitations as much as I could have, people routinely told me that the invitations were the most beautiful they had ever received. I ended up ordering a lot of pieces (menus, invitations, and so on) and matching the Claddagh design on my wedding cake. There's something for everyone - I could have picked any one of 12 designs, although the one I ended up with was great for me. All I can say is that if you care about having cohesive and beautiful paper products, go with these guys!

I absolutely LOVED working with Bella Figura!! They made me want to go into the letterpress business: they are creative, helpful, supportive and their products are stunning.

I found Bella Figura after parting ways with a local invitation lady. After feeling very discouraged and frustrated, I spoke with Jessica, who immediately put a smile on my face. Speaking with her reminded me that planning a wedding (though challenging at times) was something to be excited about! I had already fallen in love with one of their designs, so the process of choosing the design was easy. Jessica also helped make sure our wording was correct and made sense and helped me with some resources for other ideas (doing my own envelope liner, for instance). Then, I worked with Lindsy, a graphic designer. She put together two proofs with fonts that we were able to choose. Lindsy not only gave me her honest opinion about the designs, but also took my ideas and put them into the design! It was so easy to work with her!

Our invitations arrived in the most beautiful package -- I almost didn't want to send them out! We chose to go with the heavier paper for the invitation, and the thinner paper for the other inserts. The weight of them was perfect and the feel of the paper was very cottony and luxurious. I have received numerous compliments from guests about the invitations -- not only the design, but also how the paper felt!

My biggest concern with invitations from the start was cost. I initially thought Bella Figura was out of our price range. If you look closely at (and decide not to have) the add-on options on the Bella Figura website (which lets you price out the options), you can design and create beautiful invitations that aren't astronomical in price (we ended up doing our own envelope liners and flat printed the envelopes). I would love to see a non-letter press option for envelope printing, but it also makes sense that they are a letter-press company (doh).

Jessica also helped make sure our wording was correct and made sense and helped me with some resources for other ideas (doing my own envelope liner, for instance). Then, I worked with Lindsy, a graphic designer. She put together two proofs with fonts that we were able to choose. Lindsy not only gave me her honest opinion about the designs, but also took my ideas and put them into the design! It was so easy to work with her!

Our invitations arrived in the most beautiful package -- I almost didn't want to send them out! We chose to go with the heavier paper for the invitation, and the thinner paper for the other inserts. The weight of them was perfect and the feel of the paper was very cottony and luxurious. I have received numerous compliments from guests about the invitations -- not only the design, but also how the paper felt!

My biggest concern with invitations from the start was cost. I initially thought Bella Figura was out of our price range. If you look closely at (and decide not to have) the add-on options on the Bella Figura website (which lets you price out the options), you can design and create beautiful invitations that aren't astronomical in price (we ended up doing our own envelope liners and flat printed the envelopes). I would love to see a non-letter press option for envelope printing, but it also makes sense that they are a letter-press company (doh). Read less

I used Bella Figura for my letterpress wedding invitations. I absolutely looooved our invitations. We got several pieces aside from the invitations, include inner and outer envelopes, reception cards, websites cards, and rsvp cards and envelopes. We paid extra for a customer color. Everything was beautiful and looked so nice. The only drawback is the price because letterpress is very expensive, but the quality is great.

The invitations were beautiful and of very high quality. You definitely get what you pay for, even if what you pay is out of your budget (as was true for us!). The staff was responsive and gives you many chances to review your invitation, make changes, and get exactly what you want.

The fact that this press is a traditional letter-press operation but uses recycled paper and wind power was a huge draw for us. I loved that they combined old school methods with a green attitude. We were highly complimented on our invitations and they were a fantastic piece of our wedding.

I researched wedding invitations for about 6 months... everything from D.I.Y invitation suites to high quality letter press sets. The Tara style letterpress invitations from Bella Figura were ALWAYS our favorite. They were perfect for our vintage style, barn wedding.
Chris handled the logistics of our order and Sarah worked closely with us on our design. I can not say enough about these 2 people. They made our experience with Bella WONDERFUL & stress free.
When our Save the Dates & invitations arrived, they were beautifully packaged and boxed along with envelope glue, which was an added bonus!
All of our guests raved about what a stunning 1st impression our Save the Dates & Invitations made. They set the tone for what was the most incredible day of our lives. We will use Bella Figura for all the major events in our future. Well worth every penny.

Beautifully, environmentally conscious, friendly staff, did I mention beautiful? Just be sure to order a few extra weeks in advance during summer rush, as they change their turnaround time during the busy season (they were still flexible enough and rushed our order, understanding that we hadn't known about this change from the earlier turnaround time, when we did STDs). I'd re-use them in a heartbeat, even though they're kind of pricey.

Letterpress invitations are not cheap, let's just get that out of the way. These are no exception. The difference here is the quality, consistency, careful packaging, and CUSTOMER SERVICE. All of these by Bella Figura WELL exceeded my expectations. The invitations were absolutely beautiful, I never had to talk to anyone on the phone, they understood exactly what we wanted for our custom design just by a few sentences via e-mail, and production was FAST.

I honestly couldn't have wanted anything more!

I have to say how much I enjoyed working with Bella Figura. Even in moments of bridal freakout, they were calm, cool, collected and always ready to go the extra mile to make sure the customer is happy. I was able to add some custom work to my invite and I think it really made all the difference.

I ordered my wedding invites from them and then decided to return to them for my thank-you cards. Both were of excellent quality and workmanship. I would recommend them to anyone.

Their design team is first rate, but be sure to give yourself enough lead time for deigning and design changes. They also have great pricing for letterpress.

Absolutely LOVED my invitations and honestly wished I could have picked more than one. I went with a classic calligraphy letter press in gold on tick paper...you would have thought I was inviting you to the Prince's Ball. The final product was stunning. I was a little annoyed that no one could explain to me how to address the envelopes (found a calligrapher on my own), but overall, I am so happy with my decision to use Bella Figura.

I waited until the last minute to order my wedding invitations. I had stumbled across Bella Figura's site via Style Me Pretty, and I fell in love with their work. When comparing prices of their letterpress to local stores in New Orleans that offered letterpress, the price difference was amazing. I would have paid considerably more for our invitations if I had bought them in town. Bella's quality is amazing, their prices are extremely competitive, and they were super fast in getting the job done. All of our guests keep complementing the invites and I am so happy we'll have a beautiful momento from our wedding. Thank you Bella Figura!

After a bad experience with another vendor, I ended up ordering my invitations and programs here. Wow - they were gorgeous!! And I loved working with the designer -though they are not custom, they will work with you to make many different changes to color and layout. I loved my invitations! Highly recommended. They are a bit pricy but it was well worth it in my opinion, especially because the invitations went from being a source of high stress (with the previous vendor) to being completely stress-free and fun.

We even took advantage of their complimentary favor cards since we donated to charity as our favor. Because they offer letterpress and we opted to add in gold foil, edging etc. our invites ended up being pretty pricey, but they were also absolutely stunning. I loved the online quote system, it made pricing it so much easier!

I loved my experience with Bella Figura, from start to finish they took such really good care of me. I was anxious about ordering invitations online but they held my hand thru the process and made me feel comfortable. The sample set they sent me set my mind at ease and provided a great way to see and feel the designs and the paper.

The first person I dealt with at Bella was Tiffany, who was always very friendly and professional. Through the design process my designer was Beth Ann. I loved working with her, she was always very clear in her communications and very quick with her revisions and helpful with her suggestions. The process was seamless. About two weeks before our invites were to go out we had a mishap and our entire box of outer envelopes was ruined. I called Tiffany on Good Friday just before they were closing, and she fed-exed me a new box of plain envelopes the same day. (We were so under the wire that I didn't even have time to wait for them to reprint the return address.) I know I must have sounded like a crazy bride, but Tiffany was patient, calm and helpful. I couldn't believe how quickly she got the envelopes in the mail, even though it was a holiday.

For my programs and menus I decided to try to go a cheaper route and ordered them from someone else. Big Mistake. I spent the last two weeks before my wedding fretting about whether they would even arrive. And the whole time thinking, "I should have just had Bella do them."

I would recommend Bella Figura to any bride.

I literally hung the invitation sample in our home office during the entire wedding planning period! Jessica from customer service provided me with exceptional service that I needed remotely to customize and order the wedding invitations and reply cards. After that production was seamless and I received the wedding invitation sets ahead of schedule in Toronto. You definitely pay for the quality and service and it is worth every penny!

Thank you for your beautiful work, and for truly the nicest staff I had the pleasure of interacting with by phone and email!

The invitations are a fortune, but they are beautiful. I made the mistake of leaving off the date on the full invitation (I ordered it WITH the save the date and for some reason missed adding it again) and while that is of course my fault, Bella Figura still didn't catch it. When I mentioned it to them they admitted that they are supposed to look for such things because it's part of their job. If you aren't interested in finding the best price and really want something beautiful very quickly, they are great. Just proof your own invitations a thousand times.

I made the mistake of leaving off the date on the full invitation (I ordered it WITH the save the date and for some reason missed adding it again) and while that is of course my fault, Bella Figura still didn't catch it. When I mentioned it to them they admitted that they are supposed to look for such things because it's part of their job. If you aren't interested in finding the best price and really want something beautiful very quickly, they are great. Just proof your own invitations a thousand times. Read less

Bella Figura has absolutely beautiful wedding invitations. They were very helpful in helping us choose ink colors, size options, and wording for our wedding invitations (we had one set of divorced parents and one set of married parents with different last names). We had two instances where ink samples were shipped to us but never arrived, which delayed the process and stressed me out because I had to travel for work. However, that was the only issue and otherwise Bella Figura was great to work with. And we were SO happy with the final product!!!

Loved the eco-friendly aspects of this printer. Also, the quality was amazing, and the design work was creative.

Lower prices and more "free" options would have made the pot even sweeter.

We ordered the Deveril invitations - They are absolutely beautiful - we and our guests loved them. Did order the sample - definitely worth it as gives you a real sense of what you'll be ordering. Only downside is that the product is pricey.

They do absolutely beautiful work -- truly stunning. They however sent me the wrong size invitations and it was too late to get new ones printed. They refunded me a small amount for the mistake, but it was still annoying. And they ignored a few of the directions from my original submission. Still extremely pleased with the product, but just be sure you triple check everything with them.

Most importantly, our invitations were beautiful and the presentation was fabulous. I wouldn't change a thing about them but I would change some of the service issues I had working with Bella Figura. I had a couple hiccups in the planning stages where my order was not done correctly but they did take the appropriate steps to correct their mistakes and I was not charged an additional proofing fee. If you choose to use Bella Figura know that they are expensive and prepare yourself for additional fees that may or may not be outlined. Request that they send you a balance summary prior to approving your final proof as they charged my credit card a balance which included additional fees I was unaware of. I would recommend Bella Figura as their product is stunning and a perfect way to set the tone for your special day.

Bella Figura was recommended by my wedding planner. They do letterpress and have a large variety of designs and also customize as well. They do online services and have sustainable business practices. I kept my invitations simple so I was able to afford the letterpress but the cost of invitations plus reply cards plus inner and outer envelopes (who needs both?!) can really add up quite quickly. One thing I did not anticipate before ordering was the time delays in communicating with your invitation folks by email. There are definite delays and a little bit of lost time (as they are on East coast time and I live in the Midwest). One thing I would say about working with them is allocate enough time before the date you absolutely need the invitations to be sent out. The invitations were beautiful and well crafted and packed.

Know upfront:

Bella Figura does not provide printed proofs, so that you can truly see what your design looks like in your ink colors. I understand not being able to create intricate letterpress proofs, but they could easily ink up a similar plate in their library for a quick test or do a "pull down" of your colors...they don't.

"Pull downs" are larger test swatches of your ink color or foil..

If they do not have your chosen ink colors in their sample invite inventory, you will not have any idea how it prints. This was the case with my ink, and I had to choose another color. Their ink swatches are miniscule! Not possible to see what it really looks like.

Because you only see PDF / onscreen proofs, if using foil stamping, it will be impossible to know what it will look like until you get final printed pieces.

They often omit important information about printing possibilities. You must pay a deposit, then have your questions answered by a designer. So, they get your money first, and you do not know if your design will be do-able until you have paid a non-refundable deposit. There is no backing out.

They told me "no" at many points along the way...I had to resolve my own design issues with common sense solutions, and I turned those Nos into Yesses. It took a lot of work on my part.

They shipped my main invitations with printing errors -- the left half of the intricate design did not take the foil. Amazing that they did not notice while in production or while being packed for shipping. She said they were doing too many jobs in one week and should have seen it, but didn't. They had to reprint my invites and ship them a few days late -- with no discount or accommodation offered.

I love the invitations, ultimately, and was very happy with the final quality. Beautiful paper! But it was mostly my own art direction / design and problem-solving that brought it to fruition.

I wish I could give them a 5, but it's more like a 3.5 - 4.

Bella Figura makes beautiful invitations for a fairly good price. Though I LOVED my wedding invitations, I was quite disappointed in the customer service I received from my client coordinator. My client coordinator did not do a good job of informing me about what I needed to provide and when, did not provide samples that I asked for or other advice, did not write professional e-mails (hers were full of run-on sentences, typos, grammatical mistakes, which is not very reassuring given she was in charge of the invitation text), and did not timely check her e-mail.

I had a much better experience working with the invitation designer, who incorporated all my wishes and edits. The designer also went above and beyond and sent me two different versions of my invitation design when my edits were unclear.

I will say that the invitations and all pieces of the wedding suite were beautiful and guests have continued to commen that the invitations were the most beautiful they have ever seen. However the process to arrive at the final design was far from smooth, the accounting department needs to work on internal controls so that customers are properly billed and the shipping department needs to pay attention to the fat that not everyone utilizes Bella Figura's caligrapher as half of my order was incorrectly shipped to Wisconsin rather than to me so that I could send the pieces to a calligrapher I had selected. Everything eventually worked out however the invitation ordering process was the most difficult part of planning my entire wedding.

Bella Figura responded with the following comments:

We always appreciate feedback from our clients and we were so disappointed to hear about this client's experience with our company in December, 2008. This is not the level of service we offer -- we take pride in offering attentive and responsive service to all of our clients. We love that we have a chance to create beautiful wedding invitations with brides from all over the world, and we do everything we can to create a positive, streamlined, stress-free experience for letterpress invitation ordering. We deeply regret making the shipping/billing errors and causing the client any amount of stress and grief. We did take immediate action at the time of these mistakes to overnight the corrected envelopes and to offer any other measures to make things right. Again, we apologize to applewayfarm for her disappointments in working with us. Please be assured that this is not the typical experience of our clients.

I had a very bad experience with Bella Figura. Long story short, they made a mistake with my invitations order. Since it was too late to fix it, they promised me a full refund but later went back on their word.

Bella Figura offers a beautiful, high-quality product, and their customer service was positive and professional until we brought the printing error to their attention. My emails to the owners Debbie and Harold were ignored, so it'll be interesting to see if they respond to this post.

My experience with this company was terribly frustrating and disappointing--especially for something as costly and momentous as wedding invitations.

We're sorry to hear that Trisha was less than completely happy with her experience with Bella Figura. We take great care in making sure client expectations are not only met but surpassed and strive to make sure every bride has the best of experiences with us. We are familiar with the situation Trisha has mentioned, and we did work with her to offer several options as a solution. It was our understanding that an acceptable solution had been reached so we regret to hear that wasn't the case.
