I really love calligraphy.
I think this is in part because I’m a Janeite & the beautiful curly script makes me think of a time when writing with a nib & an inkwell was the only way to write at all.
Whenever I see an address beautifully written in calligraphy it makes me think that it should be presented to it’s recipient on a silver platter by a butler wearing white gloves. Sadly, nowadays most of us don’t have butlers & it’s not really practical to send all our correspondence written in calligraphy.
I do think it’s perfect for special occasions though. It adds a really special touch to envelopes, invitations, place cards & favour tags.
We offer a calligraphy service here at Hummingbird. We can add names or address to any of your stationery items for small extra charge. For more information get in touch with us in the studio on 01530 411905 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
