Calligraphy and letterpress


There is just something about those two - the precise, deep impression of the printing press paired with fresh ink from a steel tipped nib. A marriage of perfect harmony. Each of these invitations were hand written. There were only about 20 of them, so if you are considering a small get-together and have the option in your budget to have this done, it makes for an ever- so unique presentation. My customer, Jessica, specifically requested for the lettering to appear slightly irregular - the bold, not bold, large, small and huge swirly capitals are not accidental :) ... Not something my "precise-minded hand" was used to, but I'm very pleased with the end result.

I loved the fact that the bride actually requested imperfection. That either means that she is a wildly cool girl or a control freak who wants everyone to know dang well that she paid for a professional -- not a machine! -- to letter her invitations.
