Annapolis Calligraphy

 

Inviting your guests

. . . in the Copperplate Style


First impressions matter.  You want your invitation

to stand out because your event is special.  You want your guests to know that they are important to you.


Addressing wedding envelopes in the Copperplate style of hand calligraphy is my specialty.  This beautiful style harkens back to the 18th century. Using a split-nib pen, the upstrokes are fine, the pressured downstrokes are a little broader.  I use only Higgins Eternal permanent black ink. 


Let me help you make that good first impression by addressing your envelopes with the distinctive Copperplate style of hand calligraphy.
