I used this company, for two pieces of work for my son and his fiancee’s (now wife) wedding. I had never used a calligraphy service and had some reservations about whether I would get a good job. I met with Jane who was very helpful, she provided me with advice about colour and font and was able to show me lots of examples of her work. She turned both pieces of work around in a very timely way, she was accurate and her work was of a high standard. Seeing how special the end product is, it has now opened my mind to using this service for cards and other communications for special occasions. I would highly recommend this company.

Let’s Get Started
Modern Calligraphy has become very popular recently – examples of it can be seen in many advertising areas, restaurant menus, posters and even party invitations. It’s very loosely based on Copperplate calligraphy, which is a lot stricter in form and design.
Happily, for left-handed people, the pens used for this style of Modern Calligraphy use what are called ‘Fine Point’ nibs. So no more worries about finding left-handed nibs! I have taught many people the art of writing in various styles, and everyone has a great time on the day, coming away with a finished piece of work.
