Hello everyone! We all know double dipping is a no-no when it comes to party dips, but when it comes to fancy lettering, let’s just say you’re going to say a big yes to the pretty work of Double Dipped Calligraphy. Stephanie Hino, the artistic force behind the collection, shares a peek at her work and her inspiration. Let’s dip in, shall we? – Jen
On what inspires her lettering style, Stephanie shares: “The thing that attracted me to modern calligraphy was the movement of the letters and words across a page. Whenever Iâ€™m working on something, my goal is to make my lettering look effortless and organic. The tension between creating free flowing words while also demonstrating restraint is a beautiful thing!”

On her favorite project, Stephanie shares: “I love trying new things that I havenâ€™t seen before. One of my favorite projects was the Hangar 21 grand opening from last summer. There were several vignettes at the event that I was able to contribute to, each unique and so fun. The hand painted, clear acrylic chargers and tropical leaf menus were a couple of my favorites.”
On doing calligraphy on non-paper surfaces, Stephanie says: “While Iâ€™ll always be a paper lover, it is so fun to work on other surfaces. Some favorites have been greenery, leather jackets, and acrylic. I acquired a laser machine in the last year and itâ€™s been a whole new journey of possibilities. Acrylic has especially been a popular choice recently, whether Iâ€™m writing directly on it, engraving, or cutting my lettering out of it.”
On top of all the beautiful lettering work, can we talk about these amazing color palettes, too? So pretty! Thanks again to Stephanie for sharing a peek inside her work!
