Hailey Estes is the proud Owner and Lead Calligrapher behind Ernest + Wordie, Inc.
Hailey was first introduced to calligraphy when a friend invited her to a hand-lettering class in college. She was hooked immediately.
After graduating from Wake Forest University with a degree in Business Administration and Spanish, Hailey began her career in the sports industry planning golf events. A lifelong artist, Hailey turned her love of pretty letters into a business and her full-time job in 2019.
When working with her clients, Hailey relies on her years of event planning experience and a keen eye for design to create one-of-a-kind invitations and calligraphy goods. She is always honored to play a small role in her client's biggest moments and is endlessly grateful for the opportunity to spend her days being creative!
When Hailey is away from the studio, she enjoys cooking, traveling, practicing her Spanish and volunteering at Atlanta Humane Society.
