At your wedding reception or corporate event, impress your guests with individually hand-lettered place cards. Choose from three different calligraphic styles: Italic, Modern Calligraphy, and Informal Script.

Flourished Italic is the perfect choice if you would like your guests' names written in a conventional style of calligraphy.


Although decorative, Italic remains legible, and is the more traditional of the three writing styles offered.


Italic is created using a broad calligraphy nib.

Modern Calligraphy is perfect for those who prefer a more contemporary style of lettering.


Less formal than Italic, it is a lively, informal calligraphic script.


Modern Calligraphy is created using a pointed calligraphy nib.

Informal Script is a lively, informal lettering style that is more related to handwriting than to calligraphy.


It is similar to modern calligraphy, but written with a lighter touch which results in finer pen-strokes.


Informal Script is created using a pointed calligraphy nib.
