In the Details: Calligraphy + Stamps

>> Monday, October 3, 2011

Happy Monday to you lovely readers.  How was your weekend?  The cool air here made me wonder if it's time to break out a sweater, but those cool temps seem to be temporary.  This week's In the Details post is all about one of my favorite details... Calligraphy.




Who doesn't love seeing beautiful calligraphy on an invitation, used on envelopes, escort cards or menus.  While you like me may love calligraphy, sometimes the cost depending on your budget is out of reach.




While there are plenty of  tutorials that shows you a cool way to DIY beautiful calligraphy on the envelopes for your wedding invitations, if that's not enough and you want to design your wedding invitations or save the dates using calligraphy but don't have the budget, well... stamp it.




That's right, stamp it.  Design a beautiful custom stamps with your wedding invitation or save the date details and all you need is a bunch of friends ready to help assemble your stationery.





If the concept for your wedding stationery designs doesn't include calligraphy, but you want to add a little flair to the envelopes to mark this celebratory occasion, why not use a custom stamp for your return address.





Like with anything for your wedding, it should be all about what you and your groom-to-be want for your special day.  If stamping isn't your style, there are plenty of wonderful calligraphers who do beautiful work and will make your stationery look fabulous.

Hi Shannon,
I'm glad you had a lovely weekend. I'm so happy it's Fall too. The green stationery set is one of my favorites, it's a mix of whimsical and elegant.
