Commercial Houston Hand Lettering

So the secret's out...I'm making a departure from wedding calligraphy in the way that I have been running my business for the last 3 years.  Still creating those cool reception pieces - agate stone calligraphy, mirror seating chart calligraphy, ceramic & marble tile calligraphy, laser cut placecard calligraphy (of course engraving too 😉) and I'll add something else to the list if it's groovy & different.  However, I am departing from wedding invitation design & envelope addressing with the exception of my commercial accounts.

With that said, I participated on a commercial shoot last week for Slinging Ink (commercial hand lettering side of my business) and here is the result.  We went for chaos & beauty for a food account.  We loved it and hope that you do too!  Cheers!

Calligraphy in Wood - Washington DC Calligraphy

It's no secret that my work has made a deviation away from paper over the last year.  Obviously, I still work with paper, but it has definitely taken a backseat to glass, mirrors, wood, metal, acrylic etc.  I just ADORE these laser cut names that are often used as place cards.  This is my hand calligraphy taken to a larger size.  Next medium that I plan to work in....FABRICS.  Why not?!  Cheers!

Baby Sign Mirror Calligraphy - Houston Calligrapher

It's no secret that I like placing calligraphy on mirrors.  This baby welcome sign is for a Houston mother-to-be that likes just a touch of sparkle.  Hope that she likes it!

I actually calligraphed this as my client waited.  That NEVER happens as I like to have time to myself to work unless I am doing on-site events (engraving, on-site corporate event work).  However, it strangely worked out better for both of us for timing etc. as my calendar was crazy with engraving events that month for various wine & spirit companies & scheduling it later was an impossibility.  So here's to calligraphy on the fly!  Cheers!

Houston Calligrapher - Embossing

The only way I send out my correspondence....blind embossing the return address.  This is actually the formal etiquette for return addressing a wedding invitation & has been my preference for my correspondence for years along with wax seals.  I began offering this to my clients this year & it has been well received.  It's clean, classic and is offered in various styles.

Golf Club Engraving - Houston

So golf clubs have become my latest fun thing to engrave for a few simple reasons.  1) The metal is predictable & easy to work with.  (Unless it's graphite….no graphite please.  It's very soft and messy compared to steel or titanium.)  2) Sparks emit from the club during engraving. Pretty spectacular to see actually.  This golfer wanted his name on the upper portion of the shaft.  I like it!

It is extremely difficult to get great pictures of the clubs due to the high level of reflection, but here we go!
