Hey there!

My name is Claire White, and I’m the hand and the heart behind White Ink Calligraphy.

I started practicing pointed pen calligraphy in 2014, and my love for all things hand-lettered has continued to flourish (pun intended) since then. I can put calligraphy on just about anything, and I would love to get creative and find new and exciting ways of incorporating calligraphy into your event. On my website, you’ll see where my work has been showcased—from local weddings to destination weddings, from family gatherings to corporate events.

I have a special place in my heart for brides and being part of their big day. And, yes, I live in Nashville, Tennessee—also known as the bachelorette party capital of the world! I tell my brides that the envelope and invitation set the stage for their big day, giving their guests the first glimpse of what is to come. I’d love to assist you in creating a custom calligraphy suite for your invitations and envelopes—and everything beyond! For local brides, I’m located in East Nashville and would be happy to meet in person.

Outside of calligraphy, I’m an attorney who practices law in the public sector. I’m a native Nashvillian (#unicorn) and have enjoyed seeing how this town has grown over the years. I love supporting other local and female-owned businesses, and I collaborate with other female entrepreneurs as much as possible. My trusty assistant, Remy, a ten-year-old golden retriever, is always by my side.

Wonderful experience!

Oh my word.... the fabulous team at White Ink made all our calligraphy/stationery/wedding signage dreams come true! From the very first meeting, Claire and Townley were fun, engaged, creative, and dedicated to helping our colorful wildflower wedding vision come to life. They were focused on keeping us within the budget we established (which we really appreciated) while dreaming up some beautiful/creative designs that really set the tone for our whole wedding. They were incredibly fast in creating proofs and making design edits to create the perfect invitation suite! Claire was incredibly sweet, patient, and kind with me when I was feeling particularly overwhelmed with wedding stress. I cannot imagine working with a better team and I truly cannot imagine more beautiful work than the art created by White Ink. I highly recommend the White Ink team and am trying to find any excuse to work with them again! :)

So lucky to be able to work with White Ink!

Definitely work with Claire and Townley - you will not regret it. They were able to give incredible recommendations, while also making our vision come to life. I loved our wedding invite so much that I would find myself staring at it on our fridge for many minutes at a time. They were communicative and timely. We loved our invites so much that we also used White Ink for our Thank You notes.

Claire with White Ink Calligraphy was incredible to work with! She addressed my Save the Dates envelopes, and I plan on having her do my invitations as well. She was prompt with her responses, very organized & her work was stunning! I can't sing her praises enough!

I had the privilege of collaborating with Claire on a styled shoot recently. She was so fun to work with, was an incredible communicator and is a super talented calligrapher. The goods she created for this shoot were top notch and I have no hesitation about recommending White Ink Calligraphy to clients. I'm excited to work with Claire again soon!

I LOVE White Ink Calligraphy! I have used Claire for personal and business projects and she amazes me every time. Her talent and kindness are two of the many many reasons I send my brides to her. With so many different calligraphy styles, she can coordinate with any invitation style and I am convinced this girl can write on just about anything! Her marble place cards and mirror hand lettering are absolutely stunning and are sure to wow guests!
