What lettering styles can you do?

Calligraphy can be done in a variety of letting styles, and I can do any of them that are hand lettered in design. Tell me what lettering style you want, or I can match any style you have printed on your invitation, or certificate. You can also view the many samples of calligraphy lettering in the studio. The three basic styles are: (1) Block, Roman, (2) Old English and, (3) Script which includes chancery italic, and Spenserian. calli spencerian 2.jp. Or I can make suggestions on what I think will work best for your project when I read your verse or poem. It could be a mixture of lettering styles or even something unique.

What do you get when you order a poem in calligraphy?

A computer generated PROOF or prototype of your project is often generated for you to view, just to make sure that all layout work and punctuation is correct. After you approve the layout proof, then I do the calligraphy on your paper, or my paper, in archival ink.

When the work is done, you get a work of art – a truly unique work of art, suitable for framing.

How do you accept payment? 

All orders have a deposit or 50%,  paid by Visa, MasterCard or local personal check.
