I am dedicated to turning your words into visual art by bringing them to life on paper.  The creative world of calligraphy written in modern, traditional, whimsical, or ornate styles adds the ultimate luxurious touch to any special occasion.  Whether you’re seeking calligraphy for envelopes, place cards, invitations, corporate projects or other custom design pieces, I will create a work of art that will leave a lasting impression.  It is a joy to create an aesthetic experience that will wow your guests with the exquisite art of hand lettering.  There is nothing more satisfying than seeing the ecstatic expression on a client’s face when they receive the finished product. As the Philadelphia Calligrapher I pride myself on the level of care each and every client receives.

My professional services are open to wedding and event planners, designers, corporations, universities, stationery houses and individuals.  Choose from an array of calligraphic styles and fonts showcased in samples from previous projects. Regardless of the project’s scope, meticulous attention to detail and care goes into every piece created.  All information is proofread prior to delivery and the work is sprayed to avoid smudging and smearing. I love what I do and it is paramount that my dedication and passion are reflected in the final product and that all your calligraphy needs are met.  Let me help you create the vision of your dreams, and make your event truly unique and spectacular.

Philadelphia Calligrapher Services

Event Planners & Stationery Houses

I work very closely with event planners and stationery houses when designing a custom invitation or a special project.  The invitation is usually the guests’ initial glimpse into the wedding style, theme and color palette and reflects the personality of the bride and groom.  It is their first impression of the event and sets the tone for the rest of the printed material.  Handwritten calligraphy adds a personal and elegant touch by incorporating it throughout the wedding experience from “save-the-dates” to “day-of” printed items.
