FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW IS CALLIGRAPHY DIFFERENT FROM HAND-LETTERING?
The art of calligraphy involves using a pointed dip pen and ink to “draw” letters composed of thick and think lines. By varying the pressure of the nib on the paper, thick downstrokes or thin, hairline upstrokes can be created. Hand-lettering, aka “faux calligraphy,” mimics this aesthetic using different tools (e.g., pens, Sharpies, markers). Hand-lettering can be an excellent option for mirrors, signs, and other non-paper surfaces.
DO YOU ONLY OFFER WEDDING CALLIGRAPHY?
No! Calligraphy can be used to provide an elegant touch for items big or small. Event invitations, gift tags, dinner party place cards, Christmas cards, bridesmaid gifts — anything can be personalized. If you have a unique project in mind, just reach out!
