Hand Calligraphy & Engraving services

“Working with Barbara of BL Calligraphy is always a pleasure.  I come to her with multiple projects and from start to finish, everything is flawless.  She's a joy to talk to, her process and procedure are easy and pretty much foolproof and her finished product is artful and never a disappointment.  Barbara offers so many different styles of calligraphy and also does special layouts for me as well, because she is such a multifaceted calligrapher I can pretty much turn to her for just about everything.  I have yet to come upon another artist that rivals what Barbara and her company offer me.”

“Working with Barbara of BL Calligraphy is such a great experience! She works very efficiently and fast (with no mistakes that I’ve seen !!). I could have a bride decide on calligraphy last second and my go-to is always Barbara because I know she’ll be able to get the job done and done correctly, no matter if it’s months of advance notice or a weeks notice. She offers several different choices for calligraphy, and there is a style for everyone who needs/want Calligraphy. I’m excited to work with her for yet another wedding season in 2022!”

“Barbara is truly the best in the business! I used her in 2018 while planning my own wedding, and she went above and beyond to create many pieces for our special day. The day before the wedding, I realized I had made a huge mistake with table numbers, and with hours to spare, Barbara miraculously came to my rescue and redid all of our escort cards. Now planning events for my own clients, Barbara is the only calligrapher I trust to recommend. Not only is she super talented, she is wonderful to work with and easy to communicate with.”


“The time, detail and beauty Barbara puts into her work is out of this world. Everything she touches turns to special! Barbara did the place cards, save the dates, invitations, mirrors, drinks signage and bridesmaids gifts for my wedding in November of 2021. We are still gushing over her work. You DEFINITELY need to choose Barbara for any calligraphy needs. She’s the best!”



Delivering only the finest calligraphy services with a thoughtful, collaborative experience is why my client's trust me for all their calligraphy needs.
