Custom Invitation and Postage

The lovely Tova Glenn, owner of Brighten My Day, an invitation designer in Atlanta, hired me to do this invitation for her client. I've been getting many requests lately for this particular calligraphy style. In addition to the invitation, I created a monogram for the couple. This is the first time I've seen my calligraphy used for custom postage!

A New Angle on Addressing

This request is the first of its kind in my 25 plus years of business. Chelsea from Sugar Paper asked me to address her birth announcements covering almost the entire envelope and wanted the writing on an angle. It was challenging at first, but then I got into the flow. Her baby Owen is a doll!

Gold Beveled Invitation

This invitation set is a combination of my calligraphy style and Sugar Paper's special flair for paper and beautiful letterpress printing.

You can really see the from this photo of the reception card how heavy weight and beautifully the gold beveled card is done.

This is my first illustrated hand lettered map. Several calligraphers are doing these so I did my own style of lettering to keep it unique.

And here's a view of the whole invitation package together with just a peak at the envelope lining.
