Simple Elegance - monoline copperplate


A couple put their hearts and dreams into every part of their upcoming occasion. Making so many decisions to help put their personal touch on their special day. I am always pleased when I can be a part of that. It is an honor to help them create the first impression that friends and family are going to have of their occasion. Many see their invitations as an investment in the total package for their wedding day. I'm delighted when individuals realize the value of hand-lettered envelopes on their invitations. Realizing that families have budgets, I have a solution to fit calligraphy into the budget and give their invitations an elegant feel. Mono-line calligraphy can be hand crafted quicker and yet provide the style needed to set their envelopes apart.

These samples are from a job fresh off the art table.

I like this idea too, and your calligraphy is very nice! I have to also thank you for the info about the show in Ashville- Words for a Just Peace! My sis and i were able to find it and there was such a variety of ideas -so glad I was able to go! My Mom lives in Brevard so it wasn't too far away and well worth going.
