Fantastic Calligraphy and Service
We were referred to Barbara and Belles Lettres by a friend who had worked with her and had a fantastic experience. Hers was no anomaly - Barbara is incredibly organized, extremely efficient, and of course, her work is really beautiful. We used Barbara for both invitation calligraphy and day-of elements and all of the work was great. She has a very clear system for clients to provide the underlying information which was easy to work with and ensures there were no mistakes.Sent on 02/18/2019
Many thanks to Barbara - we truly appreciate her amazing efforts on our behalf! Highly recommend!

I can't say enough good things about working with Belles Lettres. We went with Barbara's mixed lettering look, and the invitations turned out looking absolutely beautiful. Barbara is also very transparent, easygoing, and helpful. She carefully spelled out all of her services and what the costs would be, and offered suggestions and samples to guide us to the right style. I highly recommend!Sent on 09/18/2018

Beautiful Custom Work
Working with Barbara was great. I was a little overwhelmed by invitation shops, but mostly knew what I wanted: classic but personalized.Sent on 02/08/2019
I first asked about envelope addressing, but wound up having her create a custom suite for me including a logo that we used in many other ways that made the whole event seem pulled together.
Barbara helped me through so much more of the process than she needed to, guiding me towards the wonderful Bernardsville Print Center for the actual printing of her custom design.
She was quick and thorough with all communication, and was able to adeptly and swiftly handle last minute additions and changes as I changed my mind a few times. She helped when I didn't know what words to use to describe what it was that I wanted.
By the end of the process the invitation went from something that was on the back burner, to one of my favorite elements. I loved hearing feedback from guests that it was, without hyperbole, the nicest invitation they had ever seen, and set the stage for how the rest of the wedding would be.
Truly the best in the tri-state area. Exceptional work and creativity!
