One of my favorite things about doing hand calligraphy is color-matching – I love to check out the graphic designs of my clients’ invitation suites, and discuss possible colors that will either match exactly or blend whimsically with the color schemes they have chosen. Very often, I will be able to match the color used for printing the return address on the back flap of the envelope and use that for the guest address. Other times I can pick up on a subtle color in the invitation or stationery design.

I get to work with several of these ink colors on a regular basis:

If you have a specific color in mind, just reach out and I am sure we can find at least a beautiful blend, if not the perfect match for your hand-rendered calligraphy!

Best wishes!
