This is an example of a flourished Copperplate style – similar to my Grapevine and Jefferson styles but with flourishes done to match the invitation enclosed. My lettering styles aren’t “set in stone”, but are fluid to play well with others☺.
This is an example of Roman capitals used in two sizes to indicate upper and lower case. Many invitations are now done all or partially in Roman caps – often softened to a grey tone like this example.
This is an example of an italic style lettering –in soft green to match the invitation and envelope lining.
Wedding envelopes used to always be done as a double envelope with the guests’ names and address on the outside envelope and their names only on the inner. This custom developed from a time when the envelope might have arrived soiled from its long journey and the butler would discard the outer envelope, presenting only the pristine inner one (on a silver tray) to the invitee. The custom continues in classic invitations as a touch of elegance.
This envelope is an example of light ink on dark which is a stunning eye-catcher, as well as a sample of a custom font designed to match an invitation. The “match” isn’t exact – nor is it meant to be. The calligraphic interpretation is meant to enhance the typeface used on the invitation. The tools used are different but the effect is a beautiful coordination.
This is an example of the Cezanne lettering style – an interesting combination of a modern look based on handwriting from the late 19th century. The light ink on the navy envelope makes this envelope really stand out.
This is an example of my Busorama/Fitzgerald lettering style done in hand mixed navy ink on a white envelope. It’s a crisp, modern look done in this combination – wonderful for an outdoor, casual seaside wedding.
Many lettering styles are available. One is sure to complement your invitation and announce to your guests that this will be an event to remember...
