One weekend.

Do you ship nationally?

Do you offer services other than envelope addressing?

Yes, I also design and calligraph wedding invitations, RSVP cards, table cards, etc.

How did you get started as a calligrapher?
I took one calligraphy class years ago which was enough to whet my appetite.
Addressing my own wedding invitations in 2002 was enough to get my work

fun ever since.

Color and sound.

    Anne, you are incredibly talented, I love that calligraphy, and so does my fiance. One thing that we wanted to get your opinion on were some review of wedding venues in the area, and which of them you prefer or not. Thanks, God bless.

    I love the calligraphy shown above (Leila and Nathan Barbour). Can you design a pdf file for us in the same form that I can use as a return address label? If so, what would the price be? Thanks so much! Julie
