If you’ve been reading OSBP for any period of time, you know that I absolutely LOVE beautiful calligraphy. Place cards, menus, seating charts – I go crazy for calligraphy in any form. And there is absolutely nothing better than receiving a beautifully calligraphed envelope in the mail! If you’ve ever wanted to improve your envelope addressing skills, my friend Bryn Chernoff of Paperfinger just launched a brand new calligraphy class with Skillshare called The Art of the Envelope – and she’s offering OSBP readers free enrollment (for a very limited time) to celebrate the launch of the course!
The Art of the Envelope is a warm, welcoming, and visually rich class, perfect for early-level and intermediate calligraphers as well as those looking to expand their professional lettering work. The online format allows you to watch and take the class at your own pace, while still participating in an active community and getting feedback from Bryn along the way.
The Art of the Envelope class builds on Bryn’s more introductory classes (which are really great for getting started with calligraphy and can also be found at Skillshare). Bryn’s class covers an essential range of topics, including how to select papers, mixing inks, accomplishing the perfect envelope layout, professional tricks of the trade, and much more. Plus, the class includes a number of exclusive downloadable resources, and all students are encouraged to share their work for feedback and to show off their skills.
The class is only available on Skillshare — and, for a limited time, all OSBP readers can join this class for free! You can enroll in The Art of the Envelope right here – or sign up for a free trial with Skillshare right here!

Lovely, lovely work, Bryn! Thanks for offering the class for free!! You rock!
I’ve had my eye on this class since it came out…thank you for the free join! (and for featuring Bryn)
I’m struggling to join for free though. I click on the link, and on Skillshare I click ‘enroll for free’, which has worked for other classes…but with this class it’s asking me to join the premium membership in order to enroll for free, which doesn’t make sense. Can you guys help? Or should I be contacting Skillshare?
Where would be a good place to buy those little inkwells (is that the best word for them?) shown in the photos? I’ve started using gouache with my dip pen but it would be much more efficient to use those wells to dip the pen instead of loading it with a brush!
Hi Madison, you can find all my favorite supplies at this link:
They’re called “dinky dips” and they’re the best!
I enrolled and have watched all the lessons. Today it is time to print out the addresses and get started. I just purchased my envelopes at Paper Source and I could not be happier with the way the ink tests have turned out. Lovely paper! Also, Dinky Dips are totally the best. Phenomenal for taking your calligraphy supplies on the go as they seal up so nice and tight. I love all of Bryn’s classes on Skillshare. The best!!!
