E

L E VAT E T H E S T Y L E A N D E L E G A N C E O F YO U R wedding with custom calligraphy! Specializing in pointed pen calligraphy, Shannan Inman from Paperglaze Calligraphy (est. in 2008) can accommodate any lettering style you desire. For over 20 years, she’s specialized in addressing services, custom invitations and wedding signage. She serves clients all over the country, but especially in Louisiana and Mississippi. She’s been featured in several blogs and magazines and is honored to have her calligraphy featured in this summer’s Magnolia Journal, coming out in May 2022. ONE-OF-A-KIND INVITATIONS Your wedding invitation not only sets the tone and style of your wedding, but serves as a keepsake to treasure for decades to come. Whether you want invitations that are contemporary and stylish or classic and elegant, Paperglaze Calligraphy works alongside area stationers/printers to craft a custom design that suits your exact taste. For a truly custom invitation, each component of the invitation suite can be completely written out in calligraphy. For the more budget-savvy bride, Paperglaze offers “spot calligraphy,” which highlights important items (e.g. names and venue) while the remainder of the invitation is typeset with a beautiful classic font. Finally, details such as hand-drawn maps, custom crests and scripted monograms can be added to truly set your invitation apart. HAND-LETTERED ADDRESSING Paperglaze Calligraphy believes that the prelude to a beautifullyscripted invitation should be an equally elegant hand-addressed envelope. Show your wedding guests that you value their presence at your big day by giving them the gift of a beautiful piece of mail, complete from hand-lettered address to invitation. Most brides know that computer-printed labels are discouraged for wedding invitations, but to hand-address the envelopes that contain your gorgeous invitations is not only daunting, but also far too timeconsuming! Take the pressure off of yourself and your busy weddingplanning schedule and let Paperglaze address your invitations in whatever lettering style you desire. Whether you envision a sweeping and elegant design or a unique and bold look, Paperglaze can address your envelopes to complement your invitations, as well as ensure that each address is correctly formatted and that guests are addressed with distinguished titles. WHERE TO START Once you’ve decided what services you would like (invitation design, envelope addressing, wedding signage, etc), email Paperglaze Calligraphy to request basic details and a quote. Include your wedding date, approximate guest count, a general description of your wedding style, and services you’re interested in. From there, Paperglaze Calligraphy will communicate with you about a more accurate quote and timeline. Like a popular wedding venue, experienced calligraphers book up quickly, so start the process early to ensure that your wedding is punctuated by the beauty of custom calligraphy.
