Calligraphy Inspiration: Allison R. Banks Designs

I love nothing more than happening upon beautiful calligraphy to find out that it’s by a calligrapher I haven’t yet had the chance to showcase. This month, I would like to introduce you all to Allison R. Banks Designs. I was wandering around the internet looking at monograms when I landed on her portfolio of stunning calligraphy and monogram work. Allison creates intricate and gorgeous pieces for her clients, with little details that will amaze and delight. – Julie

I can’t help but wonder if one would need to worry about their mail being stolen with calligraphy addressed envelopes like these. They’re basically pieces of art!

I love the gradient wash of color, from opaque and deep to rich and vibrant. The mix of calligraphy with uppercase lettering is such a great way to lighten the look.

Allison also creates some amazing monograms. It’s such a wonderful way to add a traditional, elegant tone to your suite. The detail in her work is fantastic, isn’t it? For more, check out Allison’s portfolio and  Facebook, or download her portfolio to your iPad.

  1. We recently worked with a client to design and engrave a wedding invitation incorporating a monogram they had commissioned with Allison. The quality of her work is unmatched, and the client said she was such a delight to work with. It was a budget splurge, but because we used the monogram on the rehearsal dinner invitation, and she will have it forever, it was so worth it. We hope to work with her again soon!

  2. Lovely post! Allison is my favorite calligrapher of all times and definitely the sweetest!!!! The gray invites (with white ink) shown in your post are mine! Me and my hubby couldn’t have been happier with how they turned out. She truly brought my vision to life when everyone else told me they would NOT do white calligraphy on gray stock. She made it happen!!!! Seeing this post in my Feedly this morning made my day!! Can’t wait to continue following your beautiful blog!! Katie S. Brooks
