    Amazing calligraphist

    When your guests tell you that they didn’t wanna throw out the envelope the invites came in, you know you made the right choice! Barbs artistry, effort and attention to detail are second to none. She even went through all 103 invitees to make sure addresses were correct. Thank you Barb!

    Dawn, I had an absolute blast filling out your envelopes! They had a slightly different script than usual; they ended up totally complementing your invitations, and reflecting yours and Jason's style. Thanks so much for allowing me to work on them!!

    Barb Courtney is so talented. She can write many different fonts; it was hard to choose one. Perfection! She has a gift. I would highly recommend her.

    Barbara was excellent! The invitations turned out better than exoected. Her calligraphy is beautiful and she has so many styles to choose from!

    My experience was fantastic. I was able to pick the font style and the color of the ink I wanted. She was very flexible with my busy schedule, and was able to get all the invitations done on time. They were done perfectly and look very custom. I would highly recommend!

    Excellent Calligrapher

    Barb recently did my daughter's table place cards for her wedding in calligraphy. I must say they were absolutely beautiful and perfect in every way. We had so many complements on them! Barb answers emails almost immediately. She is also very nice and was so sweet when changes need to be made. Barb is a very accomplished calligrapher and I would highly recommend her to anyone. I so appreciate how much she added to making my daughter's wonderful day more memorable!

    Beautiful Calligraphy Place Cards

    My experience with Courtney Calligraphy of Lancaster, NY was such a pleasant surprise. I contacted Barbara a month before my daughter's wedding to see if by chance she was able to do our reception place cards. Not only did she say yes at such a late date but she was friendly, professional and reassuring through every step of the process. The cards were beautifully done and by the exact date Barbara gave me when I booked with her. I would highly recommend her for all of your calligraphy needs.

    Courtney calligraphy did the envelopes for wedding invitations. They looked very nice, clean, and professional. Her pricing was very reasonable. She was very nice, responded quickly to questions, and was very helpful. She double checked every address for me, and found a few mistakes that were missed! So thank you for that :) I would definitely recommend her service and to anyone.

    I absolutely loved working with Barb for my wedding! She did the calligraphy for our place cards and our big wooden buffalo guest book! Everything turned out so beautiful! She was so great too, we added things last minute and she had no problem with that. Everything was done quickly too! Thank you! We loved everything!

    Barbara was a lifesaver! I used a different vendor to print my wedding stationary but some of the envelopes printed incorrectly. I needed to send the invites out ASAP so there was no time to go back to my original vendor to get them fixed. I searched wedding wire and contacted the person with the best reviews- Barbara! She responded right away and let me come by the same day to drop off my envelopes. She did an AMAZING job!! She sent me a sample before she wrote them all out-she has many different types of calligraphy options! She also had them done way ahead of time AND in my opinion, she undercharges for her work! Her work is flawless and she charged over 50% LESS than the other calligraphers I found online. I HIGHLY recommend her- I wish I had gone to her originally to do all of my stationary! Thank you so much, Barbara!

    I was looking for calligraphy for an art project I was working on and Google directed me to the WeddingWire where I found Barb. The calligraphy work I needed was to be done on glass. To be extra certain the work was protected, I wanted the calligraphy on the back side of the glass which meant that the work would have to be done backwards. Barb went out of her way to make this happen. She used a piece of glass she had on hand and practiced before working on my project. She kept me posted on her progress though there was no time constraint. She also sent me photos of her progress. I am not uploading a photo here because the project is a gift for my daughter and I will take no chance that she will see it before she receives it. If, at a later date, I am able to return to this site, I will gladly and proudly upload a photo. In the meantime, without hesitation, contact Courtney Calligraphy for your project!! Barb is a master, wonderful to work with and a love,y person.

    Barb did a beautiful job with the calligraphy for our inner bands for our wedding invitations. They were absolutely perfect, and she exceeded our expectations with both speed of completion and quality of service! She is a very talented calligrapher, and we plan on hiring her again soon to do our seating cards as well!

    Barb was amazing to work with and the quality of her calligraphy is phenomenal for a very reasonable cost. She answered all of my questions in a timely manner and completed my envelopes within two weeks time, giving me plenty of time to send them out to my guests. I can't wait to have Barb do my escort cards!! If you are considering calligraphy...USE COURTNEY CALLIGRAPHY!! You will not be disappointed.

    I can't recommend Barbara more. Her word is STUNNING and she is professional, courteous, and prompt. After sending out the invitations, I received the most feedback on how beautiful the calligraphy was. Additionally, she is thorough. She took the time to double-check all of our addresses and confirmed with me before marking an envelope. I found that there were a few details (name spelling, address, etc.) that I overlooked until she brought to my attention. Of all parts of the wedding planning process, Barbara made this part by far the least stressful!
