Courtney Calligraphy is a calligraphy (invitation-related) business based in Lancaster, New York. I, Barb Courtney, the business owner and calligrapher, can add a custom and elegant touch to your wedding invitation envelopes and/or reception seating cards with hand-addressed calligraphy, at reasonable prices.

Services Offered

I can address wedding invitation envelopes and/or reception seating cards; and offer a discount if couples book addressing for both envelopes and seating cards. Couples can customize their look by choosing their script and ink color; and are encouraged to share their ideas when they meet with me.

I can also provide calligraphy for other projects as well - whether documents, certificates, wedding menus, table numbers, poems, songs, or whatever items you might want to personalize with hand-lettering. Pricing for such projects is typically based on the number of lines needed and includes a design/layout fee.

Barb at Courtney Calligraphy of Lancaster did a beautiful job with our bridal shower and wedding day place cards. She also did a fantastic job addressing all of the wedding invitation envelopes. She even went above and beyond and caught a few address mistakes we made. She gave me several scripts to choose from, making it more personal to our tastes. Barb is a professional, so very talented and her prices were beyond fair and reasonable. She was flexible with last minute changes we gave her and she was very timely in getting everything back to me for the events. I was able to communicate with her via email and text and she always responded the same day. If you are in need of a calligrapher, don't look any further (I did and was disappointed) and hire Barb at Courtney Calligraphy! #pickymotherofthebride

Wonderful calligraphy

I found Courtney Calligraphy online and am so glad I chose Barb to address our invitations. She was so kind and helpful, even checking all of our addresses and finding mistakes I had missed! Every envelope was beautiful and her attention to detail was unmatched. I will certainly be using Barb for any future calligraphy needs I have and couldn't recommend her more!
