Hiring A Calligrapher

A number of our talented members provide services on commission, so if you find yourself in need of calligraphic/lettering services, you’ve come to the right place!
All of the artists listed here are experienced professionals who can work with you to help make your project special. We encourage you to visit each artist’s page, read their profile, and look at samples of their work. When you’re ready to make a decision, reach out to the artist to talk about your job. Feel free to discuss with the artist their background, experience and available references. This is also a great time to let the artist know the script and design elements you have been thinking about and to ask advice before purchasing paper, frames, or other materials.
We love this art of beautiful writing and are pleased and honored that you appreciate it enough to consider a commission!
