Calligraphy is a simple, but beautiful way to add a personal touch to everything from your wedding stationery to your outgoing mail.
A longtime lover of handwritten notes and homemade cards, I grew up in Oklahoma, where I filled ruled paper with neatly printed words, practiced block letters in the margins of notebooks and absent-mindedly doodled cursive into thin air with my index finger. These dreamy preoccupations followed me to college, where I studied Film and English and my class notes were habitually filled with lecture-inspired lettering.
While working in the entertainment industry, I took a calligraphy class in formal Spencerian Script and was immediately hooked. It was an on-again/off-again hobby until I impulsively offered to do calligraphy for a friend’s wedding. She wanted something a little less Declaration of Independence-looking than Spencerian, so I delved into modern calligraphy, working on personalizing a style for her big day.
Working for friends soon evolved into working for friendly strangers and a whole new career. Now I spend my days addressing envelopes, trying to visually capture the weight and beauty of words and drinking more coffee than I probably should.
If you have any questions or want to chat about a custom project, I’d love to hear from you!

Courtney was absolutely amazing! She was such a delight to work with - she was super responsive, flexible, and accommodating. She overnight shipped me envelopes when I forgot things last minute, she responded to emails very quickly, and she was just an absolute pleasure to work with. Whatever you may be planning -- a wedding, birthday party, event -- Courtney is an excellent addition to your team and she will deliver incredible work.Sent on 08/28/2014

Typecast Lettering created the perfect invitation and accompanying RSVP cards for me with calligraphy and art in watercolors. The artist was so easy to work with and gladly tweaked and made changes to the design until it was absolutely perfect. She sent me the original design and then files for printing. My printing company noted how easy the files were to use. I could not have asked for a better experience and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Typecast Lettering!Sent on 08/30/2014

I cannot say enough great things about working with Courtney at Typecast Lettering. Her talent and patience pulled my wedding together completely! She not only provided gorgeous custom calligraphy for my invitations, but also created numerous elements for the day of. From my table numbers and escort cards, to drink menus and signage each element was exquisite. Courtney was crazy fast in her response to changes and able to take my jumbled notes and make sense of them! I've since used her to create custom shower, bachelorette and luncheon invitations. Each creation is unique and has set the tone for the event. My go to calligrapher, artist and designer!Sent on 09/01/2014
