Finding a Calligrapher – not the easiest task

Square

Today a woman brought me a small certificate that had been presented without the name and date being filled in.  She had purchased a lovely silver frame, and wanted the name written artistically.  Cindy had shopped at Michael’s for a calligraphy pen, only to realize that there is more to hand lettering than just having a certain tool.   Then she contacted the Yellow pages listings, but each of these brought only frustration.  She reported wasting her time talking to businesses that handle commercial accounts, require a minimum of $30, or provide machine fonts, not hand written words. 

Her hunt continued for a reasonably priced calligrapher.  When a paper goods store provided my name from their file, Cindy got her happy ending.  She exchanged a five dollar bill for the result she envisioned.  Cindy left my studio pleased with a framable award.

This award is entirely hand lettered.
