Excellent work! I needed certificates completed in calligraphy, and thankfully Designs by Emmy came through for me. I explained what I needed, and she completed the job superbly and on schedule. I could not be more pleased with the result. I highly recommend Designs by Emmy.

Emmy created all of the calligraphy for my wedding and reception, and I could not have been happier with the results! I had countless guests (and the bar staff too!) comment on how her work added the perfect touch to the venue, from the chalk bar menu to her suggestion of using both wooden and clear signage along with a multi-paned window frame as the schedule, for my Greenhouse event. The experience felt even more personalized for each guest with hand lettered place cards at the farm house tables, alongside the menus she created and even gave me the option of printing that part myself (no thanks!). I have one of the larger signs in the entryway as a reminder of a perfect day, and my wife keeps a smaller one above her dresser. Thank you for the extra attention to detail and the little touches that helped create a magical day!

Wow! Michelle did an amazing job on my husband’s 60th birthday gift. For his 60th I came up with 60 activities, Michelle beautifully wrote the activities on 60 cards and included fun illustrations on some - such a nice touch. By the way I’m in Colorado and asked for this on somewhat of a short notice, communications were easy and turnaround fast! I highly recommend Michelle and will use her for future projects!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Each project and price is completely unique. Your quote will depend on the style of calligraphy you would like, size of the piece, number of pieces, type of ink, and many more factors! Tell me your calligraphy dreams and I will create a custom quote. We can alter aspects to try and meet your budget. Calligraphy can get expensive if you need multiple pieces (hello weddings!). I ask for 30% down payment, and installments until the project is completed. Envelope pricing starts at $4 per envelope for name and address. Return addresses and some styles/colors are an additional fee. Custom invitation designs start at $100. Letters, poems, phrases start at $45 plus $0.65 per word.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Show me your vision board! Do you have a reference piece? A Pinterest board? A rough sketch? The more I can understand about your style and your event the better your project will suite you. Once I know what pieces you want I will draft rough sketches for you to approve before starting your project. I always send progress pictures along the way!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am a self taught calligrapher. While I do not have any formal training, I have attended workshops put on by prominent artists. We calligraphers also do hours and hours of drills and practice!
