A Beautiful Custom Calligraphy Style

I love a bride who pushes me to try something new. My bride and event planner, Katie, asked me to create a custom style based on a sample she found on-line. I started by creating a sample. I photographed it, e-mailed it to her for approval and the rest, as they say, is history.

I returned Katie's completed envelopes to her on Friday. I LOVE the way they turned out and so does she.

Keep custom styles in mind when looking for that perfect calligrapher. Sometimes you may like a calligrapher's overall style, and positive customer reviews, but they do not have a calligraphy option that matches your invitation. Ask if they can create something custom for you. A custom calligraphy style not only helps carry your wedding theme through to your envelopes but adds one more special touch to your wedding!

Kim and Chad

I promised myself I wouldn't slack off on my blog this year and here I am, slacking! Thankfully it is because I have been swamped with work and have the hardest time finding a few minutes in my day to write something. So today's the day!

I love working with couples like Kim and Chad. They are friends with two other couples whose wedding invitations I addressed. There is nothing better than being recommended to someone by a happy customer!

Kim and Chad were married last weekend at a beautiful resort in Florida. When I started working with them, they hired me just to address their invitations. They were pleased enough with my work to then ask me to write their place cards, table numbers and menus! It is so much fun being involved with all aspects of a couple's wedding. I feel honored to be such a big part of it! And the best part is I was able to use my newest calligraphy style, Zaner, for everything.
