Hand Lettering, Calligraphy, and Monograms

We’ve picked some of the finest fonts for our wedding invitations but we’ve fallen in love with custom typography. There’s something unique about hand drawn letters, it highlights natural variations in the typography to create an ultra luxurious effect. We work with the finest calligraphers and hand lettering artists in the industry to create one-of-a-kind invitations, monograms, and envelopes that we know you’ll love!

 

What other pieces can be customized with calligraphy? While addressing envelopes is the most common use of calligraphy, we’ve hand lettered entire wedding suites from invitations, RSVPs, accommodation / direction cards, custom maps, menus, and more.

Can you create a hand drawn invitation? Yes! Our designers have created unique invitations with custom embellishments and flourishes which brings the words to life. Your invitation is the first thing guests experience for your wedding, and a unique invite sets the perfect tone for your special day.

What’s the process for creating a hand lettered invite? First we’ll work with you to find a letter style that fits your wedding. Next we’ll get to work on the design, hand drawing each letter, word by word, and line by line. Once the basic layout is complete we’ll add embellishments and flourishes to the letters. After the invitation is approved, we’ll scan, vectorize, and touch up the artwork to make sure its perfect for the letterpress process.

Do you create custom monograms? Of course! A hand lettered monogram isn’t just for the invitation but something you can use throughout your wedding. It’s like a logo for your event that can be featured on menus, napkins, programs, wax seals, stamps, and more.

What about standard monograms? We have a wide variety of specialty monogram fonts that we use to create stock monograms. A standard monogram is a great way to add a special touch to one of our existing designs.

Is there a good alternative to calligraphy for envelopes? Flat printing is a great alternative to calligraphy for envelope addressing. The addresses are printed on the envelopes using a specialty printing press. We can use any font and layout, you just supply the names/addresses and we take care of the rest.
