Bella Ink Offers Templates for Most Popular Design Sizes

http://www.bellaink.com/custom-printing


Every so often we hear from customers who want to do their invitation or note card printing at home.  Until now, we haven't been able to provide much guidance beyond:

1. Measure your designs' margins, enter them into the program you're using.

2. Type up your event's important deets, or that monogram you've been dreaming about.

3. Print on plain paper first to make sure everything lines up correctly, then have it.

Bella Ink has hundreds of designs on offer, and it would be quite a task to create a template for each of them.  Luckily, we have a fabulous graphic designer in the studio who finally rolled up her sleeves and generated templates for three of our most popular design sizes.

On our At Home Printing Guidelines page, you'll find links to general templates for Folded Notes (4.25x5.5), #10-Size Invitations(4x9.25), and Half-Sheet Invitations (5.5x8.5).  Since each of our designs is unique, we still suggest printing on plain paper first to make sure everything lines up and stays clear of any patterns and/or icons.

Happy Printing!

Bella Ink Designs' Invitations for the Boys

PH-180

Need an invitation to celebrate the man in your life?  Bella Ink offers a variety of invitations free of flowering accents to suit any occasion, from birthday bashes to retirement parties.

The newest addition to our man-friendly line-up, PH-180 (above), is a half-sheet invitation (5.5 x 8.5) that has been printed on a premium cream, card stock.  Mix tape artists of yore will appreciate the cassette tape blasting sound waves around the event's important who, what, where and when details.


PH-168

Appropriate for any age, this chalkboard inspired print uses bold colors to highlight the important message here... It's a SURPRISE!  If news leaks, blame the guest with loose lips not Bella Ink.  We did our part.  Measuring 5.5 x 8.5, this design has been printed on a premium cream, card stock.


PH-128

Fundraisers, birthdays and more, this golf theme invitation will gather the guys for a day of keeping score.  A coordinating note card (CC-102) reads, "World's Greatest Dad," should the kids want to celebrate with a day on the greens.  This 5.5 x 8.5 invitation has been printed on a premium white, textured card stock.


PH-115

Get guests on board to celebrate the man who keeps a boat (or wishes he kept a boat) docked in any of the world's great bodies of water.  This nautical theme invitation has been printed with letters spelling out "Party" beneath flags waving over the event's details.  Measuring 5.5 8.5, this invitation has been printed on a premium white, textured card stock.


PH-122

Chevron, done in mossy green, muddy purples and aquas, decorate the cake and border on this 5.5 x 8.5 birthday invitation printed on a premium white, textured card stock.  This design celebrates boys to men with vibrancy and cheer.

For additional invitations that won't make a man bat an eyelash (they're always blessed with the longest ones!), cruise through our Party category online.

Bella Ink Designs: Not Just for the Girls

Top: EF-153TY and EF-163TY.  Bottom: EF-167TY and EF-156TY.  Each of these designs is available blank for personalization (a name or monogram) or pre-printed with Thank You.
 

Some say Bella Ink isn't manly enough, but we beg to differ.  Real men wear pink, and a touch of that hue here and there surely wouldn't make them do a double take.  Not convinced?  The Fall/Winter 2014 notes featured here are a good bet for a variety of men, be they sports fans, boating enthusiasts, or card sharks.  And, there's not a trace of pink or burst of blossom anywhere to be found.

Top: EF-168TY and EF-146TY.  Bottom: EF-162TY and EF-116TY.  Each of these designs, except for EF-116TY, is also available blank for personalization (a name or monogram) or pre-printed with Thank You.  Please visit the website for a more accurate representation of the colors on these notes. 



Being the color often associated with royalty, purple may be a more approachable hue than pink.  Above are a couple of options featuring varied shades of purple, green and blue, including new designs EF-168TY and EF-162TY.   Each design works for those just graduating to those keeping in touch with the grand-kids from afar.  Business professionals may choose to keep a stash in their desks when the occasion calls for a quick but personal follow-up.





If you think he may be OK with pink after all?  EF-118 is a card featuring stripes in a variety of colors, including fuchsia, that still feels unisex.  This design is available blank for personalization or pre-printed with Thank You.

Bella Ink Designs can print any invitation or note card before it ships.  For more information, please visit our custom printing page HERE.  Bella Ink products may be purchased online at www.bellaink.com or through retailers nationwide.  To find a nearby retailer, please visit our Find A Store page.

Suite Saturday: Get These Invitations Before They're Gone!

PH-154, WCC-11 and EF-114

Looking to create a beautiful suite for a wedding, shower or birthday?  We've posted these designs before, but they're worth re-visiting because they're about to sell out.  If you've been eyeballing any of the four invitations featured here today, now's the time to pull the trigger.  You don't want "I should have bought that" remorse.


PH-156, WCC-11, and EF-151

Each of these invitations has been printed on a premium textured, cream card stock and comes with the option to be glittered by hand in the Bella Ink studio before it ships.  Invitations measure 5.5'' x 8.5,'' and may be printed in the studio before they ship.  Please check out our Custom Printing page for more information about typeset orders.

PH-108, WCC-11 and EF-115

The flat response cards and coordinating folded notes featured alongside these invitations are in stock and ready to ship at any time.  Response cards may also be used as table cards.  Bella Ink will print the response cards and blank folded notes before they ship, by request.  Blank notes look best printed with a monogram or a first or last name.  Other variations may be discussed with our graphic designer. 


WH-50, WCC-11 and EF-129TY (Also available blank for personalization)
