Vellum

Our translucent vellum paper is available in 30# text weight and is compatible with digital printing and foil stamping. We can score this paper, too – making it an option for belly bands, overlays, and more.

Design tips and ideas for choosing your invitation paper:

You can mix and match paper weights. For instance, use 2-ply paper on the wedding invitation, and 1-ply paper on the reply card and reception card.

If impression is important to you, you’ll get the deepest impression on our 2-ply and 3-ply papers.

If you’re considering edge painting or foil edging, you may want to opt for our 2-ply or 3-ply paper — while adding an edge looks lovely on our 1-ply paper, the thicker paper will produce more eye-catching results.

ENVELOPES

Our envelopes are all eco-friendly and exclusive to Bella Figura. We can print on our envelopes via letterpress or foil stamping, or you can order your envelopes blank. You can also have your envelopes digitally addressed. We offer both a modern square flap envelope and the traditional pointed flap envelope.  Pointed flap envelopes are available in select sizes in white, bright white, and ivory. Our cotton and color envelopes are priced the same. Square, #10, A-7 inner and outer, and place card envelopes are only available in the Bella white cotton, Bella bright white cotton, and ivory cotton.

Our color envelopes are a great way to bring more color to your invitation set. These envelopes are acid-free and FSC-certified.

Tips for designing your envelopes

Want more color? Add an envelope liner – we can line your envelopes with foil stamped envelope liners, digitally printed patterned envelope liners, metallic envelope liners, or vintage map or cityscape liners.

Add design details, like type monograms or illustrations from your invitations, to your envelope flaps or your envelope fronts!

Print your return address in a pretty color from your invitation suite, then ask your calligrapher to match the ink color when addressing your invitations.

POCKETFOLDS

You can add one of our pocketfolds to any of our wedding invitations to create a memorable enclosure and add a pop of color. Our pocketfolds are exclusive to us and made right here in our print shop using eco papers ranging from 100% PCW to reclaimed cotton to FSC certified. We offer letterpress printing, foil stamping and digital printing on our pocketfolds, too! Our pocketfolds are smartly self-closing with a flap, requiring no labels, adhesive, or ribbon, and they’re available to fit our rectangular A7 and F8 and square SQ7 envelopes. We adhere the invitation onto the pocketfold before shipping them to you.

Design tips for pocketfold invitations

Your pocketfold can function as an inner envelope—you or your calligrapher can address the pocketfold to your guests as you would an inner envelope.

Letterpress printing on our pocketfolds is a great way to make your pocketfold invitation unique. On the exterior of your pocketfold, we can letterpress print the bride and groom’s names, the date of your wedding, a monogram, or simply bring in design elements from your wedding invitation. We can also digitally print one of our exclusive patterns on the inside of your pocketfold.

We offer free design consultations after you place your order, where you’ll have a chance to talk to our designers about your options. So if you’re not sure what pocketfold color to use for your invitation design, or what exactly to letterpress or foil stamp on your pocketfold, no worries! (and if you need help now, just ask!).

BACK POCKETS

You can also add a back pocket to any of our wedding invitations to create a space to hold additional cards in your suite. Our back pockets can be made from our Cotton, Smooth Cotton, or Color papers. We offer letterpress printing, foil stamping, and digital printing on our back pockets, too!
