Madeleine did a beautiful job addressing our wedding invitations! We received lots of compliments. They were all accurate and accounted-for, in addition to looking lovely. She finished them in good time, and had great communication throughout the process. Would recommend!

I worked with Madeleine before with my Save the Dates and there's a reason I continued to work with her again for my wedding invitations. Not only does she do gorgeous, consistent work, she is very professional. She worked with a tight deadline over the holidays and due to some delays on my end she was able to help me with expedited shipping. She went above and beyond her call of duty, and when the package arrived I was blown away at her work. She's on top of things and talented; I highly recommend her work and services.

Properly Penned

I am a twenty-something, recent graduate with a degree in Entrepreneurship and Innovation from the University of San Francisco. Armed with a couple of pens, a stack of envelopes, and a big idea, I set up shop from the desk of my teeny tiny dorm room in 2012.

Today, I've moved out of my former space and continue to specialize in modern calligraphy for the creative and whimsical. I strive to provide contemporary calligraphy and stellar customer service for my clients. Through this adventure, I've had the opportunity to delight dinner parties, weddings, and events with custom hand lettering artwork. My work is on Style Me Pretty and I've had the good fortune to create for clients from California to Virginia to Hong Kong! Properly Penned merges my desire to create with a passion for independence and business.

Thank you for visiting my shop and inspiring me - I look forward to hearing about you and how I can help set the tone for your fabulous event...
