I am thrilled that we were referred to Michele and got to work with her. The calligraphy was gorgeous and she even shared tips on addressing etiquette (which we were pretty confused about before talking to her). Our invitations created quite the buzz among friends and family with the calligraphy being called out specifically but many. Aside for the great work, Michele was also fantastic at accommodating out quick turnaround request. We won't hesitate to call on her for any future calligraphy needs or to recommend her to friends!
I was thrilled to find that Michele at Meant to be Calligraphy, who is such a talented calligrapher, was located so close to my home. Michele responded quickly to my initial inquiry and throughout the process she was always responsive, helpful and a pleasure to do business with. I both dropped off and mailed stationary to her that I had purchased on WeddingPaperDivas.com. She did our table number cards, escort cards, and signage for the dessert table. When I picked up everything a few days before the wedding, I was blown away by the quality of her work and it exceeded my (high) expectations. Her work was a beautiful addition to the wedding day!
The best calligraphy I have ever seen!Reviewed on 3/11/2012 Julie Hodgson M
Michele with Meant To Be was recommended to us by Hitched, where we got our invitations. I had actually found Meant To Be previously when looking up calligraphers, and I knew her works was the best I had seen, so when Hitched recommended her and she was available, we ended our search. Our invitations were written in pewter instead of black, and Michele was able to match the color almost perfectly for the envelopes and escort/place cards. Additionally, she was familiar with the font that we used for our invitations before she even saw it, so she was able to offer up suggestions of what fonts she could do that would look the best with it. You can view all of her fonts on her website - we opted for Durham because of how good it looked with our invitations. When our invitations went out, I got several phone calls talking about how beautiful the calligraphy was and how they couldn't believe that a human being could actually do that. But Michele can because she is amazing. She also did our escort cards - we had planned to buy fancy ones that matched our invitations and programs, but because we waited until the last minute, we ended up having to buy plain ones from the Paper Source, but I was actually glad in the end because Michele's calligraphy is so stunningly beautiful that I wouldn't want a design to take away from it. Her work is gorgeous and flawless and if she's available, you should hire her immediately.

It was an absolute joy to work with Michele of Meant to be Calligraphy. Her work was outstanding and I could tell how much time and care she put into her designs. We had Michele address the invitations, create the escort cards, and make some other signs for the wedding. She also created a jpeg of her calligraphy for the menu card. We received so many compliments on the invitations and the escort cards and we know it was worth it to splurge on calligraphy. Michele has a lot of fonts to choose from and is willing to accommodate to your wedding's needs. She is easy to work with and easy to reach by email or phone. I'd highly recommend her!

SO BeautifulReviewed on 6/29/2011 ashley k
I feel so lucky to have worked with Michele on my wedding invitation calligraphy. She was referred by a local wedding salon and I couldn't be more grateful. The envelopes were breathtaking. We received so many compliments! I couldn't be happier that we choose Meant To Be Calligraphy!!! Thanks Michele!

Absolutely fantastic!!Reviewed on 6/06/2011 Kristen C
Michele hand scribed our small-batch wedding invitations on vellum (her smart recommendation), and they were beautiful, absolute perfection. Her professionalism, honesty, and fast turnaround were absolutely top notch, and very fairly priced. I recommend her with the highest compliments, she was wonderful to work with and her calligraphy is gorgeous.
Perfect!Reviewed on 5/24/2011 Jessica B
Michele Fritz was great to work with! She was really responsive via email and phone, could meet me in the city for drop-offs, offered advice, and help at every turn. When I said, "Michele, I'm too stressed out to pick out escort cards!" she just found options for me and emailed them. I had them mailed straight to her house, and she brought them to me when she was finished. On top of that, our guests loved her calligraphy on their invitations, place cards, and escort cards. It was a really special treat. I wish I had more events to use her for!! She is friendly, professional, detail-oriented, and fast! Love her!
Superior.Reviewed on 3/04/2011 Amy R
I've done the legwork for you - I reviewed a dozen calligraphers before selecting one to handle my wedding invitations. If you look at her website it is easy to see why Meant To Be Calligraphy stood out above the rest. Not only does she offer a variety of fonts, but she goes above and beyond with customer service to make sure you are happy. She picked up and delivered the envelopes (for free) which saved me a lot of time. She was happy to answer all my questions about postage, hand-canceling, and even displaying the escort cards. She worked with me to select the best font to complement the pre-printed return address, and even hand mixed the ink so that color was a perfect match to my invitations. Her work is superior and even though I sent the addresses to her later than I'd hoped, she still got them done and returned earlier than promised. Simply put, Michele will produce results that you are proud to display. If only all vendors were this wonderful...
Michelle is great!Reviewed on 6/03/2010 Peggy P
Her work speaks for itself but she is easy to work with, responsive and her pricing is fair! The envelopes for the invites were gorgeous and I plan on using Michelle for escort cards as well.
Top Notch Calligraphy!!Reviewed on 6/02/2010 jessica m
I've never seen calligraphy as beautiful as Meant to Be! All calligraphy tends to be pretty, but Meant to Be truly takes it to another level. I had friends tell me it took them awhile to open my invitations because they were staring at the calligraphy for so long! In addition to the beautiful work, Meant To Be is delightful to work with. They are personable, professional, and so easy to work with. I highly recommend Meant to Be!
