How to Order
You know you want a Custom Calligraphy piece, either for a gift, or for yourself… but where do you begin? Ordering custom calligraphy services doesn’t have to be hard, or overwhelming. Let us help you ease the process! Follow these steps and don’t ever hesitate to contact us if you need additional assistance.
Step 1: Learn about Calligraphy
There are lots of calligraphers on the internet. But as a consumer, how do you know that if the calligraphy is a quality level of the handwritten calligraphy style you are considering before ordering custom calligraphy services? Learning about what makes good lettering will help you make educated decisions before ordering your custom calligraphy. Here are some articles on my website that will teach you about what characteristics to look for in well written calligraphy styles and what level of expertise to expect from professional calligraphers:
Step 2: Choose your text
The text you choose should be meaningful to you and to your recipient. The text maybe a poem, a letter, a passage from a book, a favorite prayer or Biblical reading. The possibilities really are endless. If you’re not sure or want ideas for unique gifts be sure to visit my blog and store for ideas. Remember personalization: to, from, on the occasion of, date…. makes your custom calligraphy gift even more memorable.
Step 3: Choose your project’s background
You’re right, this might seem pretty obvious but not so fast. Choosing the perfect background for your custom calligraphy poem can greatly enhance your custom piece. Most calligraphy services will have you pick a border design for your calligraphy. Did you know that one of the things that sets us apart from all the other calligraphers out there is our ability to use YOUR personal photographs in your pieces? Using photoshop magic, I can even add your selfie photograph to a different background.
I want to “stretch” out of your comfort zone and not pick a plain parchment background. You may not even realize what real “parchment” is… (but of course, if that is your final decision to pick parchment for your calligraphy poem, your wish is my command..)
There are lots of wonderful photographs to choose from- but it’s important to pick one where I have a place to put your calligraphy text. If you’re not sure where to begin please review these pages and of course, feel free to contact me if you’d like a creative eye and artistic heart to help guide you to your perfect choice for your calligraphy poem.
