Delighting friends and family with envelope calligraphy

The other side of the coin is what you don’t see: your friends and family coming down for breakfast and seeing something unexpectedly beautiful on their doormat…

The curiosity as they pick up your handwritten envelope…

The smile as they open it oh-so-carefully…

Creative layouts for calligraphy envelope addressing: the names are highlighted in a larger size

The pleasure at receiving something really special. The sense of anticipation as your invitation is kept, in the lovely envelope. It will stay on the mantelpiece for their friends and neighbours to admire. I hear so very often how many wedding guests have commented on our beautifully handwritten envelopes. It’s wonderful feedback for me. It will be just as satisfying for you to hear how your guests appreciate the extra effort you’ve gone to.

Appreciation of an envelope calligraphy treat!

What we hear from our calligraphy clients is oft-repeated: “everyone commented on the calligraphy”. We can’t guarantee your RSVPs will come back faster. However we truly believe there’s an enthusiasm generated by our calligraphy service. There’s definitely a genuine pleasure in the form of an envelope addressed in beautiful calligraphy.
