Announcement    Beginning June 16, Etsy is raising their transaction fee for sellers. While I'm still deciding whether to continue on Etsy, and pass that cost onto buyers, like you, or just absorb the extra cost, if you are interested in one of my items or services, please contact me directly through the Etsy convo app, or my personal e-mail, paintjar [!at] me.com. I will be happy to help.

Wedding season has started. I specialize in invitation addressing, but I can do many other items for your special day, just ask. Book my services quickly as I will get busy as spring rolls on.

Calligraphy is the art of beautiful handwriting. I specialize in addressing and designing wedding/event invitations. I'm a graphic designer by training, but in the day and age of computers, I still like to make art by hand. I've been creating beautiful letters for almost 20 years and enjoy turning letters into art. Thanks for visiting my shop and letting me share my art with you.

    I have nothing but good things to say about this calligraphy. It is absolutely beautiful and matched my invitations and the style I wanted perfectly. Jennifer was very professional and easy to work with.

    Found this seller offering VERY reasonable calligraphy work on scrolls and requested a custom piece -- a letter (a poem, actually) from a leprechaun to my son as a little bit of St. Patrick's Day fun. I requested modifications such as green text and ribbon, etc. and everything was followed exactly, I could not have been more pleased seeing my special surprise for the holiday come to life. The letter itself was beautifully written, and it had just the right "vintage" feel I was going for, as well. Seeing the excitement over this leprechaun letter really made my day, and truly added another layer of magic and whimsy to this festive time. My son LOVED it!

    I recently worked with Jennifer on my wedding invitation envelopes. I was in a serious time crunch, and wanted to get them done as quickly as possible. Jennifer not only met my expectations, but far exceeded them, she completed & returned them to me within a week, and they were unbelievably stunning! As requested, she addressed them in gorgeous 'Meratre' font, and was able to perfectly match the ink color to the same gold color I had embossed for my return address. I am so happy with her work & professionalism, I will definitely be using her for any and all future calligraphy needs.

    I cannot express enough how wonderful these addressees came out! Not only was it a dark color envelope, but it had glitter. Jeniffer picked the right gold and seriously matched the invitation perfectly. I 10/10 recommend her for anything you’re looking to do. Thanks for making it so special!

    I was looking for a beautiful hand written letter to use for a marriage proposal and found Jennifer's listing. Jennifer was very accommodating and extremely helpful. She worked with my to create a custom listing that fit what I was looking for. Her prices are extremely reasonable compared to many other listings I inquired about. The letter came out amazing! Her hand writing is so beautiful and I couldn't be happier. I would recommend Jennifer (paintjar) for any custom letters! Thank you so much~! P.S. She said yes!

How it all started

I have always been creative. Much to my grandmother's dismay, I loved Sunday school because we 'made stuff.' I've done many crafts over the years, paint by numbers when I was young, knitting, sewing with my mom, making Christmas ornaments with my aunt...you get the picture. Anyway, that led me to major in art in college. Even though I majored in graphic design and have worked for many years in that profession, I've always liked creating art the old fashioned way...by hand.

After my company needed someone to fill in some names on certificates, I took my first class in calligraphy. From there started a love of using letters in art. Although most of my work is in the addressing of wedding and event envelopes, I do like to create contemporary art using letters.

    I combine my skills in graphic design and my love of letters into my calligraphic artwork. I address wedding / event invitations, but also design custom artwork for clients.

Returns and exchanges
If for any reason you are not happy with the item you purchased, I will be happy to make it 'good' whether you want a refund or a redo.

For wedding invitations, I have a reputation for accurate addressing, but occasionally I will make a mistake. I proof my work as I go, but I ask all clients to to double check my work. If you find a mistake, let me know as soon as possible and I will correct it and pay to ship it to you. I always keep a few envelopes in case of late additions or mistakes.
Payment
I currently take PayPal. When your transaction is complete I will ship your item(s) to you.
Shipping
I plan to use the United States Post Office, but can probably use UPS if requested. I will also ship with tracking or delivery confirmation.

For wedding / event envelopes I will need 10-14 days for turnaround, depending on the number. Because the nature of calligraphy being done by hand I require 10-20% extra envelopes, place cards etc. I require a typewritten (Word, Excel) document listing your addresses.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you have a specific quote/lyric/poem that you would like created in calligraphy, I'd be happy to give you a quote.

I enjoy using high quality papers and inks in my work. I can create custom colors for your project, say to match your wedding invitation, or your home's decor. Please feel free to write me with any questions or special requests you may have. I'm open to being creative an helping to make your event or purchase perfect.
