Digital Calligraphy

Nothing can really replace the beauty of hand calligraphy. The slight imperfections of the strokes and the beautiful flourishes are just a perfect finish for your invitations. Because it's done by hand, you can imagine how much time it can take and therefore, the correlating price. So I encounter a lot of brides asking me for alternatives if they do not want to write their guest list by hand or do sticky labels.

The alternative is something stationers call digital calligraphy or computer calligraphy. Simply put, it just means that we will help print your envelopes for you with our printers. If your stationer offers this, it can be a great saver for your hand! Not to mention, the prices are more affordable than hand calligraphy. There are several options that we offer at Papeterie. 1) Black ink with a font of choice (Picture 1 is in a script font that I love to recommend for digital calligraphy) 2) Colored ink with a script font and 3) Colored ink with a motif! (Shown in pics 2,3, and 4).

Using a motif as part of addressing unifies the invitation set. If the motif has been repeated too many times in your other stationery, sometimes it's good to use just a part of it (picture 2 is a good example of this)

Stay tuned as I will be posting more on different ways to dress up your mailing envelope!
