Custom Calligraphy to Create Lasting Memories

Give a beautiful, thoughtful, personal gift with custom calligraphy.

They’ll appreciate the thought and time you put into having it made just for them.

Custom Calligraphy Styles

The fun part, of course, is color and calligraphy. During our consultation, we’ll chat with you about the occasion for the proposed calligraphy and the person or space it’s for. We’ll suggest calligraphy and materials we think would best suit this project. We use artist-grade paints, inks, and papers for professional results that will stand the test of time. View our Calligraphy Script page to get an idea of what we can pen for you.

“Renee did a beautiful, framed piece for us on hand colored parchment . . .

She listened to what we needed and very quickly produced the exact gift we wanted to give to dear friends. She is a total delight to work with, and her work is thoughtfully created. I could not ask for more. If you have any calligraphy needs, do give Renee a call!”

Presenting Your Custom Calligraphy

Our pieces come ready to give, hang, and enjoy! We add a mat and frame most of our work for protection and presentation. We’ll seal the artwork we present on canvas or panels to protect it from dust and fading. Please note that calligraphy requires 2 to 3 times more space than a printed font. Depending on the amount of text, the completed calligraphy will likely be larger than a standard 8.5″x11″ page. I’ll include a rough idea of the size of the completed piece during our consultation.
