We love.... making your letterpress wedding invitations and marriage certificates!!!

Well, I guess the story goes way... back to the 80's when I (Elecia) was a little girl and fell in love with calligraphy back when I was about seven years old. My art teacher pulled out one of those calligraphy markers and scrolled our names on scraps of paper. I asked , "How do you DO that???" She must have been a very modest woman because her answer was that it was the pen. Can you imagine my disappointment when I urged my Nana to purchase one, and I tried it out?? My sloppy seven year old penmanship, even with my attempts of loops and swirls, just didn't cut it....

Many many many trips to the art supply store and kits upon kits with instructions I had it down early into my double digit years. I addressed envelopes for loved ones parties and scrolled the names of our guests on place cards for holidays.

Calligraphy got pushed to the wayside for many years once it was time to graduate high school. I attended the University of Rhode Island where I majored in Textiles Merchandising & Design, with a minor in Fine Arts. My favorite classes were Color Theory, Color Science and Print Making. All of which I use the skills I learned every single day.
