Bella Figura

Get Started

Work with us directly, or work with a dealer

We’ve been building beautiful long-distance relationships with our brides for years now, and our wedding invitation clients come to us from all over the world. Since we’re an artisan letterpress shop, you’ll notice our care in our ultra-attentive customer service and in our drop-dead gorgeous printing, whether it be letterpress, foil stamping, or digital printing. We never let our clients down.

We’d love to meet you in person, too!  Our flagship store opened in October 2015 on the Upper East Side of New York City.  View our designs (all 300+ of them!) and work one on one with us to create the invitations of your dreams.

You can work with us directly, or you can see Bella Figura at some of the finest stationery stores around the world. Our dealers are friendly and passionate experts who will help you choose—and customize!—your dream invitation. They’ll walk you through the ordering process, and they’ll give you design and wedding invitation wording advice. If you work directly with a dealer, they’ll coordinate all of your ordering information with us. Pricing is the same, whether you work with a dealer or directly with us. 

Here’s how to place a custom order for your wedding invitations. (You may want to review what services we offer our customers, too.)

Order samples of your favorite designs.

Samples are $4 each, and we’ll ship them for free. Not sure what design to choose? We can help.

Fall in love with a design. Place your order.

You can customize your chosen design by choosing your favorite inks and fonts, and adding embellishments like corner rounding, edge painting, envelope lining, die-cutting, colored envelopes, and more. To order, go to your favorite design’s invitation page and click ‘pricing + ordering’ or fill out and fax or email our PDF order form. You can choose to schedule a design consultation with one of our designers during the ordering process if you’d like.

Send us your text.

We’re here to assist you with your wedding invitation wording, so ask us any questions you have!

Enjoy the design process. 

After we’ve received your text and a 50% non-refundable deposit, we’ll send your digital design proof to you within 3 business days (or 6 business days if your order contains hand calligraphy or custom artwork). You’ll be able to work one-on-one with a dedicated graphic designer to create the invitation of your dreams. 2 free proofs are included with your order.  

Approve your design proof. 

After you’ve finalized your design, send us your written approval so that we may begin printing your order. Your remaining balance is due upon design approval. 

Get ready for something wonderful. 

Your order will ship 10 business days after the date of design approval. Rush services are available  — see below for options.

The Fine Details

Turnaround

Send us your order and your text, and you’ll receive your initial proof within three business days (hand calligraphy, calligraphy monograms, and custom design require 3 additional business days). Revisions to proofs are sent out within one business day; hand calligraphy revisions can take up to 3 business days. Once you send us your final proof approval, your order ships within 10 business days.

Rush turnaround

Need your stationery order sooner? We offer 3 levels of rush services ranging from a 15% to a 60% upcharge. If your design requires hand calligraphy or custom design, we’ll still need the six business day turnaround time for design.

We can ship blank, unlined envelopes as soon as we have your proof and deposit for no charge other than the cost of shipping.

Proofs

Two rounds of changes to your initial proof are included with your order. Additional rounds of revisions are $40. We email color PDF proofs directly to you.

Shipping

UPS ground shipping is $25. Expedited shipping is also available for an upcharge. We ship international orders world-wide with reasonable international shipping rates. Folded pieces are shipped scored and flat for more secure shipping. 

Payment

When you place your order, we ask for a 50% non-refundable deposit. When you approve the proof, we’ll charge the remaining balance before we start printing. We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, money orders, Paypal and personal checks. Orders cannot be canceled after proof approval.

Sales tax

We charge sales tax on orders shipped to a New York state address. Orders shipped outside of New York are not charged sales tax. If you’re an international customer, you will be responsible for all import duties and taxes. We can provide your estimated landed costs (including duties) upon request.

We are committed to your happiness

If something isn’t right, let us know — we will do everything possible to fix it.
