Melanie did a wonderful job with our placecards. She was accommodating with our short timeline. It was an absolute pleasure working with Melanie! I strongly recommend her services.Jun 2, 2015Verified
Melanie did the caligraphy for my wedding invitations this past summer. She spent a long time trying to match the ink to the return address ink that was pre-printed on the envelopes. Melanie turned ~100 envelopes around in a couple of days which was great! She was also very understanding when I asked her do write a few more envelopes for me. Many people even called me after receiving my wedding invites to tell me how beautiful the envelope address looked! I really enjoyed working with her and would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for affordable and high quality calligraphy services.Dec 14, 2012VerifiedMelanie H.'s reply
Hi Gabriella - Thank You so much for this wonderful review - I appreciate it more than you know! I have just been honored by being awarded the BOW (Best of Wedding) Award on the knot. I would be so grateful if you could copy and paste this review to the knot also. I can't seem to find your email address - if you can send me something to my email address I will send you the whole little format thing. Thank You again for everything - My Very Best Wishes to You and Your New Husband in the New Year! Melanie
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I don't - number of envelopes, color of ink, time frame that's about it. Artwork - it just depends on the piece.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?No I don't - but if something in the town continuing education booklet jumped out at me - I would jump on it - that is if I had the time!!
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I went to school to be an art teacher - but I didn't get to do my practice teaching, then I got married etc. and never went back and did it. I regret it now - but I have had the luxury of doing so many unbelievably creative things - designing bookcovers for Large Print books doing all kinds instructional media for the phone company. Designing the town booklet and drawing various town land marks for the Chamber of Commerce in my town. Working with so many interesting people and always being able to do something creative to help out various causes.
