Kristy @ Momental Designs's Picture
Kristy Rice, Pennsylvania Vendor: Invitation Artist Website: Momental Designs About Me: I remember drawing by flashlight way past my bedtime as a young child – I never stopped. For me creating art is not an act but a lifestyle. I am passionate about creating moments on paper, my home, loving my hubby and believe you can never have too many fantastic handbags.
About Kristy @ Momental Designs

Every once in a while I connect with an artist’s creation. Whether it be a specific placement of a brushstroke or a mindful way a line is drawn - the smallest detail can spark a huge response. Discovering Betsy Dunlap’s artful calligraphy style elicited such a response. I was instantly captivated by the energy in her hand-drawn letters - how certain styles simply danced across the page. Officially introduced to Betsy’s work when the new Brooklyn Bride site was launched, I was hooked and a fan for life.

Tips on Placing Calligraphy Orders

September 9th, 2009 @ 3:51 pm by laurahooper

I frequently get requests from clients as to how their lists should be submitted prior to my work on their envelope order. Though we have all this information outlined in our contracts, I thought a short explanation as to why I ask for your list this way might encourage more clients to send their lists in the proper format.

Submitting alphabetized lists: It may seem obvious to submit your address lists in alphabetical order (preferably numbered as well), but very often we receive lists that are not in any particular order to the blind eye like ours. This is an extremely important detail to streamlining the entire process for three main reasons:

Real Wedding: Adamson House, Malibu, CA

August 25th, 2009 @ 3:17 pm by laurahooper

We recently worked on a wedding taking place at the Adamson House in Malibu, CA. We always love this venue and this wedding was especially gorgeous. Elegantly low-key, this fete had a “backyard wedding” feel that was successfully pulled together by the ever-so-talented Beth Helmstetter.

We were so thrilled to receive gorgeous photos from Mary Jane Photography of a wedding we recently worked on. :-) We think their entire affair turned out beautifully. Beth Helmstetter commissioned us to design and calligraph all of their invitations, and we created the reception materials to match along with the adorably rustic sign below.

About Kate Parker @ Kate Parker Weddings

We have worked with some very talented calligraphers over the past several years and have had the pleasure of meeting some fresh new faces recently as well. It made me think about how many clients actually know about calligraphy and how beautiful and effective it can be to incorporate its cost into your overall paper products budget. Today we will review where you can use a calligrapher and the costs involved. Yes, you don’t have to spend any money to have someone else write everything out for you but that can take hours and hours and your time is very valuable, so you might want to consider a calligrapher!

There are a few ways to calligraph using different nibs- yes that’s a technical term. Depending on the type of font, a calligrapher will use a different nib to create a thinner, more flourished font or a thicker, more chiseled font. Some fonts are so thin and delicate that an ink well can’t be used and a calligrapher will use an actual pen to create the lines of the font.

Here are some examples of calligraphy in a more chiseled font:
