Look through the work here for some inspiration for your special day! Besides addressing your envelopes, I can provide table numbers, escort cards, and calligraphy for your invitation and save-the-date.

I designed this wedding suite with Mark Lerner of Rag and Bone Shop. It features heavy duplexed stock, letterpress printing, beveling, edge painting, and custom stamps. My “Winston” style of calligraphy was used throughout the stationery and the reception. Congrats to Linda and Melissa! This sprightly green and black and white suite for Michelle and Jamie is by Cheree Berry Paper. I love the bold use of the calligraphy. This handsome wedding invitation combines two calligraphy styles, Winston and Bookhand. This unique and sumptuous look carried throughout the whole suite: envelopes, program, menu, escort cards, and gift tags. Engraved by William Arthur on extremely heavy stock, with beveled and gilded edges. (Photos: Robert Norman.) This handsome wedding invitation combines two calligraphy styles, Winston and Bookhand.

When a beautiful envelope with calligraphy arrives in your mailbox, it
announces  that something special will  happen. And people love to see their names in calligraphy!  It can be flourished and grand, or casual and funky. I can write in any color ink. So playful and colorful! This suite by Cheree Berry Paper combines calligraphy and type beautifully. The calligraphy style is Flourished Copperplate. I love addressing envelopes in bright colored inks. This will be one for the birthday girl's scrapbook. The inspiration of cupcakes and rickrack came from Lillian's special birthday dress.

Katie and Breen’s bold calligraphy diagonally placed on each piece of their suite is so striking and sets a design theme for the rest of the wedding.

A personalized belly band surrounded the suite. Designed by Mark Lerner at Rag and Bone Shop and myself. Oo la la! Girls night out! My illustration and lettering was based on a Toulouse Lautrec poster from 1896. It rolled into a special mailing tube.
