Calligraphy by Cristine, Distinguished and Professional

Reviewed on 11/04/2015 Lucy S

I write to enthusiastically endorse Calligraphy by Cristine after engaging her for my daughter's wedding invitations. Ours was a formal invitation, and Cristine's calligraphy--on the outer and inner envelopes of over 150 invitations--much enhanced the presentation. She is very... Read More clear about the timeline for completing the work; and the mailing back and forth--of the envelopes to be addressed and the finished product--was seamless. The script we chose (to be written in grey ink, which she easily accommodated) combined formality with whimsy, and the result entirely met our expectations. Cristine further distinguishes herself in presenting a website that provides all the information a potential client is looking for, including samples of the many calligraphy styles she offers. We availed ourselves of her offer to send us samples of the three styles we were interested in, which meant we could see a real example of her work rather than merely an online display. That exercise gave us clarity in choosing her work. Her rates were very much in line with others I explored. I would also say that while we never met, I very much enjoyed my email exchanges with Cristine, who was always responsive throughout the process and especially diligent in communicating the all-important mailing specifics when we were expecting the finished product. I am pleased to describe here our completely positive experience with Cristine and the beautiful contribution she made to my daughter's wedding.


Guests raved about the addressing!
