Wedding Invitation Design - North Carolina Calligraphy

In the last blog post, I referenced how 98% of what I do is probably the same as it was done in the 1800's.  However, I do embrace technology when it doesn't compromise the integrity of what is the basis of calligraphy.  With that said when it comes to wedding invitation suite design, Pixelmator is my savior as it saves me from having to recreate every stroke exactly the way that I may have previously created it on every single line of the design.

Here, I am integrating a name design change per request of my client.  She wanted subtle changes in the names.  If I were to completely rewrite the entire invitation to accommodate this, it would be just short of a nightmare as I would need to create everything else exactly the way that I did on the version that she liked. Technology makes this task a dream instead of a nightmare.  Technology, I embrace thee.
