Trend We Love: Couture Calligraphy Invitations
At Chandelier, we're always looking for a fresh spin on traditional wedding elements. That's why we love these Isabelle Lynne Signature Designs, a couture line of custom calligraphy invitations. Each suite is individually hand-lettered by master calligrapher Jennifer Medley Gillespie and letterpress or flat printed. Designs can be customized with your choice of calligraphy and color. All invitations come with a single mailing blank envelope and a response set that includes response card and blank envelope.
I particularly like the Elegance suite (pictured) which features a layout with classic ornament designs on the top and bottom of hand-written calligraphy text. Printed in 1 and 2-color layouts in both digital flat print (on linen-finish textured paper) or letterpress-printed on 100% cotton tree-free Crane's lettra paper. Make sure you check out all the options Jennifer offers for calligraphy fonts for your envelope-addressing, too!
Love this trend, too? Here are two more hotspots for cool calligraphy invitations: Paperfinger and Bella Figura.
