Washington, District of Columbia

Be kind to your calligrapher:

Select your stationery with pen and ink in mind if you are hiring a calligrapher.  Some paper surfaces do not enable certain pen nibs and inks.  If there is a certain script you desire, take a sample to your calligrapher to verify that it matches the tools required to write that “hand.”  And plan on choosing a w-i-d-e envelope for your invitations if you are inviting many people who live in locations with l-o-n-g names, such as Washington, D.C.  Formal addresses necessitate additional space to spell out everything.

About Carol

A professional calligrapher for 30 years, I have hand written calligraphy in every size from business card to banners, including a full size reproduction of the U.S. Constitution. I specialize in Copperplate and elegant calligraphy for celebrations and parties. I stumbled into this art when my professor at Washington University told me "You could make money lettering." This was quite a surprise, as I had not seen any specific use of my talents beyond teaching children. As a result of designing my wedding stationery clients magically appeared. Balancing a family of four children and two big dogs with Bruce, my artistic time and available energy have varied considerably thru the years. Now I am happy to report that calligraphy is at the top of my activity list.
