Above & Beyond in Every Way
Diane of Tampa Calligraphy worked with me on every detail to realize my vision for our wedding invitations, and we are over the moon about the final product. Diane turns the impossible into a tangible product, does not accept “no” for an answer from other vendors, is very responsive, flexible with meeting times, and extremely communicative about the processes and progress. We had a very short planning period for our wedding (three and a half months!), first reached out to Diane less than three months before the wedding, and she managed to get our invitations done to land in our guests’ mailboxes with seven weeks to spare before our wedding. Our guests were very impressed with the invitations, which helped set the right tone for our black tie wedding. It is, after all, the first impression your guests get of the wedding!Sent on 02/12/2019
Our invitations consisted of a calligraphed envelope, custom-printed stock pocket folder, a invitation card mounted in the interior of the pocket folder, with cards in the pocket for RSVP and additional events. My graphic designer friend designed everything based on sketches I gave her and then Diane literally put everything onto paper.
Diane tracked down pocket folders and matching envelopes in the size, color and shape I wanted. Since we had a short time frame, we could not have custom pocket folders made so tracking down stock folders that matched my vision was not an easy task.
I wanted a custom design printed in thermography onto the pocket folders, which, after speaking with several thermography printers and doing a failed test run with one of them, seemed impossible. We thought we'd have to change the printing method in order to get the design printed onto the folders. Diane spent hours figuring it out, and by some miracle got the folders thermography-printed with my custom design.
She also introduced me to a local calligrapher whose prices were unbeatable and work was stunning. He did all of the envelope addressing, and Diane had the return address thermographied on the flap.
The main invitation was printed using three different printing methods - letterpress in two colors, blind letterpress and gold foiling. The ink was beautifully done, the gold foiling was crisp, and the cardstock Diane picked out was perfect to display all of this. The additional cards were letterpress in two colors on the same cardstock as the main invitation. The printing was consistent throughout all 125 invitations and cards we printed
The final invitation suite was unbelievably gorgeous - I couldn't have imagined anything better. It all conveyed the elegance and timelessness we were trying to achieve. Everyone was impressed with the final product – our guests, our graphic designer, people at the post office and even our other wedding vendors who have seen dozens, if not hundreds, of wedding invitations.
I'm a perfectionist and very hands-on with my creative endeavors, and to find someone who can manage and exceed my expectations is rare and cherished. Diane goes above & beyond for her brides!
If you are a bride and/or groom in Tampa Bay looking for someone to translate your vision into the ultimate paper product, you have found the person in Diane at Tampa Calligraphy.

Quick turnaround and beautiful calligraphy printing!
Diane did a fabulous job addressing our envelopes and was so sweet and easy to work with. We're having a very small wedding and didn't need many envelopes done, but she still helped us out and turned them around in less than 24 hours. Definitely recommend her for all of your calligraphy needs!Sent on 06/10/2019

Beautiful, original announcements!
I have worked with Diane on several occasions to create high school graduation announcements for my three children. Since 2013, I have worked with this company. The invitations were thoughtfully done, original and creative. Diane is very easy to work with, she is my go-to for any type of announcement and/or invitation.Sent on 03/24/2019

Diane was wonderful, in every way. We had a short time to get things ordered, addressed and mailed out and Diane made everything work out so smoothly and stress free. She knows exactly how to properly address, organize and mail invitations out on time. The calligraphy was beautiful. Diane went over and above in helping me and was very pleasant and easy to work with. Diane was available when ever I had my many questions and She knows all the answers. Thank you Diane for all you did for us and for the beautiful invitations.Sent on 03/24/2019

Diane was super easy to work with. She responds quickly, is flexible with scheduling meetings, and has quick turn around times. She knows stationary etiquette (something I know very little about) and had great suggestions for how to address our invitations.Sent on 01/06/2019

Beautiful work with extremely fast turnaround times
Diane designed and produced programs for my daughter’s wedding, a welcome sign and the matching seating chart. She was extremely easy to work with and incredibly fast. I would give her the information and she would have it designed and a proof to us the next day. We kept adding information to the program and Diane never got upset nor did she charge us for the multiple proofs she sent us because we kept changing our minds. The final products were beautiful and far exceeded our expectations. We would definitely recommend Tampa Calligraphy and Diane.Sent on 02/04/2019

Tampa Calligraphy was a lifesaver when my envelopes from Zazzle failed to ship after a month. I can’t believe how quickly Diane did the addresses on my envelopes, the quality was amazing and very budget friendly. She was so easy to work with- I wish I would’ve found her earlier in my wedding process.Sent on 09/22/2018
Teresa · Married on 10/21/2018
I would 100% recommend Diane. From the beginning, she was incredibly easy to communicate with and detailed exactly what she could offer. When I met her, she was very easy to talk to. When she heard my vision, she knew exactly how to put it on paper. She seriously tried everything in her power to make the process easy for me. After seeing my beautiful invitations, I knew she was the only person I would go to for my escort cards. I can’t say enough good things about her.Sent on 10/17/2018

We've received numerous compliments on our invitations.Sent on 07/05/2018
We also purchased our guest escort cards and table numbers from Diane. She went above and beyond to make sure we had them on time, even mailing them to our destination wedding address. Highly recommend Diane for any of your paper needs!
