When you think of calligraphy, you may automatically think of weddings. Yes, wedding work is an important and special part of my job as a calligrapher, but you can also use calligraphy well into your married life to celebrate children in many ways with special, one-of-a-kind hand-lettered pieces! Here are a few ways to use calligraphy to honor your precious little blessings:
1. Birth Announcements - Delicate curls and swirls are a natural complement to those darling newborn pics you had taken. Use calligraphy exclusively, as shown in the first design here, or intermix it with a computer font as shown in the second design.
Three babies and a big sis...that's my BFF Sarah's life. She welcomes donations of diapers, coffee and wine.
2. Birthday Parties - Commission a custom calligraphy invitation that you can keep for your child in a scrapbook or even frame alongside birthday pics, and add hand-lettered signs and decor to your child's party.
More birthday party pics from last year here (Annabelle) and here (William).
3. Hand-lettered Artwork - Commission a custom piece or hang a calligraphy print in a child's room for a touch of whimsy. Our christening pieces are popular gifts that can be framed and displayed in the home.
4. Baby Showers - We celebrated baby Cecilia in grand fashion last summer and more recently had the honor of designing baby McKenzie's shower invitation.
The possibilities are endless, y'all. Email us if you have a special someone we can celebrate with calligraphy and don't forget to order Easter egg tags now! Our deadline for orders is March 22 and we ship nationwide.
Have a great weekend and for Mississippi peeps going on Spring Break, be safe / good luck with the kids home!
