SYRACUSE, N.Y., March 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Letterpress stationer Bella Figura (www.bellafigura.com) recently added 75 new wedding invitations to their collection for the 2013 wedding season. The designs feature a variety of new offerings, including die-cut shapes, new calligraphy styles, colorful new envelope liners and new foil colors.
- Die-cuts arrive. Die-cuts are an exciting new embellishment for 2013 – these sophisticated shapes instantly up the elegance factor on any invitation by adding soft curves or bold lines. Bella Figura can also create a distinctive, custom die-cut shape for any occasion for a truly one-of-a-kind piece.
- New foil colors (including pastels!) Metallics were extremely popular in 2012, and with classic, glamorous weddings making a strong comeback, foil is a style that's definitely here to stay. 7 new foil colors have been added to Bella Figura's offerings, including sophisticated neutrals (like pearl, a soft white foil, and tawny, a beautiful taupe foil) as well as lovely pastels (mint! lilac! pink!). For couples looking to make a statement, foil stamping looks breathtaking when paired with letterpress. And for those who aren't ready to commit to a lot of shine, adding a foil edge to an invitation is a great way to embellish without going overboard.
- 10 custom calligraphy styles, including Callaway (a rich, formal hand by Sarah Hanna), as well as 6 whimsical styles from Bella Figura's newest calligrapher, Elizabeth Hardin, are new for 2013. Bella Figura offers over 30 hand calligraphy styles from 7 of the nation's top calligraphers.
- Incorporate local touches with new maps and cityscapes. Turn a cityscape or vintage map of a wedding location (or any location!) into a custom envelope liner. Bella Figura's designers can also create custom maps that coordinate with an invitation design.
- Create colorful envelope liners with your favorite hues. Introduce more colors to an invitation suite with Bella Figura's new patterned envelope liners. Choose a combination of colors from Bella Figura's 60+ inks, then choose from over 40 patterns to create a vibrant envelope liner. Patterned envelope liners from Bella Figura are 100% post-consumer waste recycled and FSC-certified. The line also carries a variety of FSC-certified metallic envelope liners and eco colored envelopes.
