I can only say that Heather's calligraphy was the most PERFECT, BEAUTIFUL touch to our wedding invitations. We have received so much positive feedback about how gorgeous the envelopes were. With the vintage stamps I had collected and used? The calligraphy was nothing short of gorgeous

Heather was great to work with! She was very timely in her responses and when I had quite a few changes due to friends moving, she was not hesitant to update the address listing I had sent her. When I noticed an error, she was very fast to respond. She had even kept a few of my envelops at her home just in case. She corrected the error and I had my new envelope in 2 days! I would recommend using her in a heartbeat! I don't want to send out my invites because they are too beautiful, I want to keep them to myself and just stare at them.
