Antique-style wedding calligraphy

I'm SO happy with how one of my latest projects turned out. I loved everything about it - the antique-style calligraphy script the bride chose for her wedding invitations, the white ink on Kraft paper envelopes, the fact that it was just a big enough order not to make major hand-cramps kick in... perfection. Check out some of the finished shots, including one of the longest envelopes I've ever addressed...

Valentine's calligraphy!

Happy Valentine's Day, friends! I'm not going to have a very exciting day -- just working and going out to a low-key dinner tonight -- but I prefer it this way.

I'm working on a really beautiful color combination (white ink on Kraft envelopes) and script this week for a bride's wedding invitation calligraphy, and that's always fun! Especially with two feet of snow on the ground, I need something to pass the time. Check out this new style!

Calligraphy for a special poem

Another request I've gotten a lot of this season is to calligraph a special poem or quote. This is a great way to commemorate a loved one's favorite verse or even a poem they may have written. Custom calligraphy is the way to go, people!

Below, I did two different options because I couldn't decide between classic and modern lettering. Which do you prefer?

Baby shower calligraphy

I've gotten a lot of custom requests lately for baby shower calligraphy. The below piece is a before (sketch) and after (finished piece) that lets you see my process a little bit. The white ink on dark navy blue paper turned out GREAT! And it was framed in a beautiful rustic wood frame -- perfection!
