Bella Figura is an artisan letterpress print shop, specialising in handcrafted eco-friendly letterpress wedding invitations and stationery, printed on our beautiful 100% reclaimed cotton paper. We are located in Syracuse, NY where we revel in the beauty of the seasons and the ever changing landscape of Central New York.
We’ve hand-picked the best designers and calligraphers in the country to create our line of exclusive wedding invitations. This diverse group of wildly talented artists has several things in common: a ridiculous talent for dreaming up letterpress invitations; a fabulous eye for color; pitch-perfect typography; and the ability to inspire.
We believe in the power of letterpress to do good. And for a print shop to do good in this day and age, more is required than simply using recycled papers and soy inks. We need to do stuff. Being an environmental print shop means researching and developing and striving and challenging and setting goals.

Past couples’ comments
I never thought I would get so excited about a paper product!
I had an idea in mind about colors and design for my invitations, and Bella Figura made it happen. I went with my mother one day, and they were welcoming and immediately showed interest in what I was imagining. When knowing that we wanted to stay local, the staff offered and took us on a tour of the entire facility.
They emailed quickly and often with proofing, always quick to adjust changes. The final products took my breath away, and I have received so many compliments on our invitations.
Wonderful to work with!”
I have ordered these for multiple clients and am never disappointed! They are such a high quality product. They can inspire an entire wedding! Thank you again and again!”

From start to finish, Bella Figura has been absolutely AMAZING! We made our first appointment in August of 2014 to get the ball rolling for wedding invitation ideas and we were so impressed, we ended up ordering everything for our July 2015 wedding: Engagement Party invites, Save the Dates, Bridal Shower Invitations, Thank You Cards and the entire Wedding invitation suite. Bella Figura, and more importantly, Kyle and Mariel have been so helpful with everything. They listened and took our ideas to put them into the most beautiful invitations. I knew I wanted to go somewhere local to feel the paper weight, look at the examples in person, and talk to actual people about the ordering process, and Bella Figura was the place to do it. Now I want to throw parties all the time to order from them! We will definitely be back!!!”
