Birthday Invitations!

Updated: Nov 7, 2020

I recently finished a calligraphy project that took a good twenty to twenty-five hours. I lettered over 50 invitations and addressed their envelopes, and for the first time all with a pointed nib pen!

My client is an artist, so he painted all of the 50's in scarlet and neon pink before I lettered them using my Blue Pumpkin nib and Noodler's Ink. I made a first invitation to use as a template, and then borrowed my client's light box for tracing the rest.

Here's a time lapse video of my making one.

Here are a few pictures:
