Bringing your vision into physical reality may involve lettering a special message or verse and placing it on a colored background to convey the mood of your special gift. Perhaps I will be addressing envelopes for your wedding using romantic flourishes and glossy black ink. An entwined three initial monogram may be the design you want me to create for thank you stationery.
Or your project may be as straightforward as completing a certificate with names and dates.
My photo gallery will introduce you to a variety of styles or “hands.” (Hand is the calligrapher’s word for “font.”) Many are classic hands such as Copperplate, Chancery Cursive Italic and Uncial (in use centuries before the printing press was invented), while others are custom alphabets written to match a specific wedding invitation font. It is helpful if you have an idea of which “hand” might be your favorite, but I will guide you through the entire process of choosing the details.
If you plan a complex, unique art, the cost will be estimated when I fully understand what you want written.
The size may be as large as the four page U.S. Constitution, or as tiny as reception place cards. Complex or simple, you receive my best work and full attention, delivered within your timeframe.
Information here will provide an idea of standard fees for jobs such as addressing envelopes.
Of course I am happy to answer all your questions as we develop the particulars of your project.
I look forward to working with you to design your personal calligraphic art.
