HAND CALLIGRAPHY BY LAURA HOOPER

Thank you for thinking of us for your calligraphy & lettering needs! We would love to work with you on your wedding or special event. Your invitations are your guests’ first glimpse into your wedding style, theme and color palette. It’s their first impression of your event and sets the tone for the rest of your printed materials. Let handwritten calligraphy add a personal and unique touch to your big day by incorporating it throughout your entire paper goods experience from save the dates, to invitation suites and envelopes, to your day-of printed materials.

We are not currently accepting orders for individual piece commissions. We do appreciate you thinking of us!

CALLIGRAPHY INK COLORS

Color is one of the most important aspects of your wedding. Color accentuates the theme, sets the tone and brings life to your special day. When picking your unique color palette, think about your venue, flowers you always dreamed of, and specific décor you would like to include.

Your wedding colors will bring your vision to life and combine all of your interests into a cohesive and vibrant design. Also, every color has its own personality – pink exudes femininity, green speaks nature – so your wedding colors should represent your personal style and theme. Choose a color below and see how Laura Hooper Calligraphy can incorporate even the most unique color palettes into a custom and elegant wedding suite.

Looking for a color not shown below? No problem – we’d be happy to mix a custom ink for you. Just let us know the Pantone color and we’ll match it.
