I just LOVE doing calligraphy for romantic husbands who write poetry for their wives for Valentine’s Day!
This husband knew his wife’s favorite flower is Lily of the Valley. We found the perfect photograph on Stockfresh. If you want to use your own photograph, make sure your photo is high resolution in order to have a crisp print. Many people have their cameras set to take a low resolution picture. Make sure you check your settings on your camera, so you always have the option of getting a really good print!
Maybe you’re not great at writing love poems. That’s one of the things that’s so great about the internet. You can find wonderful poems that you can use online . They can be sentimental, or even funny. You can even pick a poem that talks about their hobby (like golf, or tennis?), or their profession? Another idea is to use the lyrics of “your song”. I’ve written John Legend’s lyrics many times!
Send the text to me. Then I hand write the love poem, or your choice of poem or quote in calligraphy. I then scan it, resized, and I work on the layout to fit perfectly with the photo of your choice. Then the superimposed calligraphy is perfectly laid out on the photograph or background of your choice.
One of the best things about modern technology is that I can take YOUR personal photographs and combine them with the calligraphy. Don’t forget to add your personalization. That makes the piece special for your loved one! It’s a totally custom, personalized piece of calligraphy that makes such a beautiful keepsake.
(I always send my clients a picture of the finished work before it’s printed to make sure they love it!) Read the reviews, so you don’t have to worry about ordering online.
The final part is printing. This husband chose to get the calligraphy love poem gallery wrapped. It’s a great alternative to traditional framing. The print goes around the sides so it can be see in all directions. There are lots of other methods of printing that don’t need frames. I like the small prints that can be placed on a desk at work- to remind the person you love every time they see the words with your photo.
Doesn’t it look great? I’m working on another one right now! The next one can be yours! If you don’t get a calligraphy love poem for Valentine’s Day, you can still get one for yourself for any occasion!
(PS- Don’t forget about gifting yourself! Just think how great it would be to have your favorite inspirational or motivational quote right over your desk! )
