Classic Black + White Calligraphy

It’s a good day when I get to combine two of my favorite things – calligraphy and letterpress – in one post.  Nicole from The Left Handed Calligrapher sent over some beautiful wedding invitation envelopes and day-of stationery that she calligraphed for a recent bride, all created in a lovely and elegant black and white palette.


From Nicole:  This bride was wonderful to work with and super great about her paper products – she wanted everything!  I calligraphed the addresses for her wedding invitation envelopes (the invitations are the Cartoccio design from Bella Figura).

When it came time for the ceremony and reception stationery, I created a tall ceremony program, a menu with calligraphy seating assignments, and tented escort cards in the same calligraphy.  All letterpress printed on Crane 110lb 100% cotton Lettra paper in chic and sophisticated black and white.


Nicole also calligraphed the guest book, which was actually a coffee table art book from the wedding venue, the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas, Texas.  Finally, Nicole created custom calligraphy thank you notes with the bride and groom’s married names and new address.
