I have always liked these lyrics from Boz’s song. It’s something to letter while practicing!

I went to the IAMPETH conference in early August in Indianapolis and loved it! I had never lettered with pointed pen before this and was nervous. I took Engrossers Script with Bob Hurford on the first day and loved it. He is a great teacher. I have been practicing ever since and this is my Engrossers/Copperplate alphabet for today! I can see that I need work on many of the letters! :)
I used a Nikko G nib with Moon Palace Sumi Ink.

This envelope was lettered in a navy blue ink for a recent calligraphy project that I did. I developed this style last year for my daughter’s wedding and named it after her.
I am available to letter the envelopes for your invitation. My pricing is very reasonable and the turn-around time is approximately two weeks, depending on the amount of envelopes you need lettered. Please contact me at email@example.com for more information.

I wanted to create somthing for my new calligraphy pal for 2014. We just received the name of our person and she’d celebrated her birthday just a short time before. I thought it would be nice to create her name with different typestyles for each letter. Black and white was too boring so I added some color. When finished, I sprayed it with fixative since the color part was watercolor. To finish it off, I scored and folded it like an accordian so it could stand up and would be easier to mail!

The client wanted the lyrics of their first dance lettered onto her pre-cut mat. I utilized the ‘letter it first, fold to determine the middle and then letter on the final piece’ method. The stress factor is high with it being just one chance to get it right! Room was left underneath the photo area for a plaque with the name of the song.

First I lettered the words, then folded them to find the center. This way it shows me where to begin the line to center them in that line. This was done recently for the Sherlock Holmes Society who hold their yearly meeting in NY in January.
