We just received our Ketubah for our wedding next March. It is absolutely gorgeous and exactly what we wanted. Shipping was extremely quick as well! We can't wait to sign it on our special day!

Love the stamp! A proof was sent very quickly, and the stamp was produced and shipped faster than the estimate in the listing!

About

it's not a font... it's my handwriting :)

I grew up in a beautiful small town in northern New Jersey, taking art classes after school and learning the classic Calligraphy style Italic Script. I went to college in upstate New York and got my BFA at Syracuse University, and met my future husband. We then spent the next 12 years living in New York City... from Jersey City to the East Village to Brooklyn. I worked as a Graphic Designer for Bloomingdales, Seventeen Magazine, Teen People, The Knot, Organic Style and CosmoGIRL to name just a few, and did wedding Calligraphy for friends and family whenever I could. It was a blast living in such an amazing city...

and then we had kids and everything changed! Living in Brooklyn was wonderful but we longed for a slower pace, more space and more trees...

and ended up moving to Culver City, California where we found it. A friend introduced me to etsy and I was in love! I opened up my shop, featherletter in 2010. Inspired by modern calligraphers with a more organic whimsical look, I changed my style and it has since evolved to what you see now. I started off doing wedding envelope addressing and place cards, and have since added stamps and Calligraphy signs and other items. I love getting new requests because it gives me inspiration to add new items to the shop to accommodate my customer's needs.

    I was always a doodler... drawing and writing on everything. My drawing led me to a career in graphic design and my writing led me to calligraphy.

International orders ship via USPS Priority Mail with a Customs tracking number, which is 7-10 days, unless another method is requested.

Please place addresses in a Microsoft Word document (No Excel please!) - stack the address as they would appear on the envelope. Please spell out the states and place the zip codes below on it's own line. For the apartments please spell them out, for example "Apartment 4E" instead of "#4E". I use "&" instead of "and" for "Mr. & Mrs.", etc.
If importing from Excel - Remove all lines and boxes.
Please specify lines centered or flush left and format word document accordingly (if you want lines centered, please center lines in word document).

For best results paper should have a smooth finish. Certain kraft envelopes/cards have a fiber texture that could lead to uneven ink distribution especially when using white ink, it can appear streaky.

Please allow 1-2 weeks for completion, depending on complexity. Estimated completion date will be communicated at time of transaction. Rushed orders can be accommodated for an additional fee.

For Stamps:
After you purchase, a proof will be emailed to you for your approval before the stamp is made. Process is 2-3 weeks to design, produce and ship.
