Bella Ink Designs' 2014 Louie Award Nominees



We couldn't be happier!  Two Bella Ink Designs greetings have been nominated for 2014 Louie Awards.  Winners will be announced Sunday, May 18 at a gala hosted during the 2014 National Stationery Show in NYC.  All nominees will be on display in the Javits Center during the National Stationery Show.

When miles get in the way, CC-181 (left) reaches out and lets family and friends know they're close at heart.

Let someone know they're appreciated with CC-194 (right), a "Thank You" without being a standard "Thank You." 

Each of these designs are packaged singly and sold glittered, only.  They have been printed on a premium textured, cream card stock.  These, and other Bella Ink products, may be purchased through card and gift shops nationwide, as well as through www.bellaink.com.  For a list of nearby retailers, please visit our Find a Store page.

Suite Saturday: Get Set for Your Event

Invitation: WH-74, Note: CC-207 and Response/Table Card: WCC-11

Woodland weddings inspired this series of Spring/Summer 2014 invitations from Bella Ink Designs.  Each invitation is shown with corresponding notes and response/table cards that will set the tone for any rustic event, whether it's in a barn, by a lake or at the city's hip new eatery.

Invitation: PH-163, Top Note: W-32, Middle Note: EF-76 and Bottom Note: EF-92

Bella Ink is embracing the rainbow hued bridal party trend by incorporating a variety of vibrant colors on each Spring/Summer 2014 invitation.  Pinks mix with hot oranges, and sunshiny yellows mesh with aquas and orchids.  Be sure to visit the Bella Ink website and check out WH-75, too.  This bridal shower invitation is a simple blue and white design featuring a bride and her bouquet, which is bursting with color.

Invitation: WH-72, Top Note: EF-80, Response/Table Card: WCC-11 and Bottom Note: EF-91

In addition to wildflowers, take a cue from these invitations and incorporate feathers into bouquets, boutonnieres, and other floral arrangements for the big day.  And remember, wedding invitations should match the bride and groom's vision and personality, even if that means building a suite of stationery that's  a little less traditional.  It will make complete sense to those who know them well.

Suite Saturday: Get Set For Your Event

Invitation: BH-42, Response/Table Card: WCC-11, Note: EF-107 (Also available blank for personalization)

Baby showers.  Aren't they fun?!  There's always an abundance of tiny clothes we wish came in adult sizes, family and friends we haven't seen in ages, and cake!

Many of the suites we've been posting will suit just about any event you're hosting, but today's picks celebrate glowing moms-to-be, only.  Whether it's a boy, a girl, twins or a secret, Bella Ink has the pieces you need to create a suite just as unique and fabulous as the guest of honor.


Invitation: BH-33, Response/Table Card: WCC-11 (solid cream also available), and EF-141 (Also available blank for personalization)  *Please note that this and BH-33's chevron stripes are green, not taupe as they appear on screen

Bella Ink's favorite gal is always dressed for the occasion when she makes an appearance on baby shower invitations.  Your friend isn't forgoing fashion for nine months, and neither is our gal.  Easy, breezy dresses and sun hats are a staple in her closet.


Invitation: BH-37, Response/Table Card: WCC-11 and Note: B-49

We know fans of Bella Ink love a baby bottom, and we always try to keep at least one in our line-up.  Currently we have the above in blue OR pink, and the double baby bottom invitation picture at the top of this post.  In the world of Bella Ink, purple and green are neutral, so if your friend is keeping a secret, and having twins, this card has your event written all over it.  (After we print it on there for you, of course.)

Bella Ink will print your important who, what, where and when details on invitations before shipping.  Simply add custom printing to your card.  Please visit our custom printing page for more information.
