The Art of the Hand-Written Invitation

Back in the days too far back for most of us to remember, invitations to formal events were written (and respond to) by hand. The host would pain-stakingly write every line in their finest hand, using a calligraphy style that would leave most of us baffled with trying to decipher in these modern times.

Today, letterpress and most often, theremography, has taken the place of handwriting invitations to most events -- even the most formal. We even have computer software that will print the envelopes on us. The weird thing is, though, that most of the fonts chosen for wedding stationery are designed and use fonts that give the impression of the handwritten note.

The calligraphy Lady The Calligraphy Lady will do more than give that impression. She will actually handwrite invitations and other parts of your wedding stationery in an amazing calligraphy, to include handpainting a rose or flower of your desire on them.
