Calligraphy Style Samples

View our most popular hand calligraphy styles for envelope addressing, custom invitation design, and place card fill-ins.

Addressing Wedding Invitations

The most popular layout for addressing wedding invitations is called "left indented" where the top line starts furthest to the left, with the remaining lines indented more than the previous line.

Place Cards & Escort Cards

Escort cards are used to tell your guests which table you would like them to sit at for your rehearsal dinner or reception.

Place cards assign your guests to their specific seats at each table.

You can use traditional small envelopes and cards for escort cards, or use nontraditional table assignment "cards" such as favor boxes, origami figures, Christmas ornaments, or sand dollars.

Name Design

You can have your entire invitation set designed in hand lettering, or simply embellish the bride and groom's name in calligraphy on a typeset invitation. Either method will give you the custom flair you are looking for!

Invitation Design

Custom wedding invitations designed in hand calligraphy are very popular now, and allow you to be part of the design process as you work with your calligrapher to create just the right look for your wedding theme.

Monogram Design

Monograms can be used on thank-you notes, bar napkins, favor boxes, menus, the wedding program, and even the wedding cake.

Menu Design

Have the menu headings hand lettered for a pretty enhancement to a typeset menu.

Table Signs

Table signs or table cards can be designed several ways: as numerals only, as "Table 1", "Table One", or with special names to match the theme of your rehearsal dinner or reception.
