Another lovely set of Calling Cards for Emily Ellyn I love the orange edge paint paired with the black ink. These were printed on 110# LUXE paper and edge painted with our signature highly pigmented inks with love. On these cards, I discovered that latex gloves really helps keep your hands from cracking. With all the hand washing, painting and heat gun settings, my finger tips have started cracking with this dry winter weather. Good bye cracking knuckles, hello latex gloves! If you are looking at landing yourself a set, it is a great way to get into some letterpress cards without breaking the bank and they turn around fast! Check them out here to customize a set of your own.

These calling cards shipped out recently and were done in the Spencerian Script Calligraphy. I love seeing all the different names that we do for calling cards. They feel sort of like a fingerprint. While the design is the same between cards, they all still feel so unique because of the nuances of the flourishes and swashes within the lettering. I think in another life I would have loved to be a calligrapher, such a beautiful art that I have so much respect for! These were letterpress printed on 110# lettra paper, with Gravely/Cement ink and a red edge-paint. A great way to still get letterpress cards if you are on a budget, these are one of my favorite products to produce! Get a set here for the new year or gift them for the holidays.

Calling cards never get old for me. Seeing the calligraphy by Kathryn of Della Carta is magical every time it shows up in my inbox. These were letterpress printed on 110# luxe white paper in gravel ink with papaya edge painting.  Sold in sets of 50, this is a great way to get into a set of calling cards without the investment of meeting the press minimum of 250 cards for a custom print order. Get an estimate here, these are always a big hit for gifts for the holidays and turn around super quick!

This was a rare request that we were excited to be a part of. While I haven’t traveled out of the US (with the exception of Toronto which I LOVED), working with international clients (or foreign languages) for that matter provides some interesting challenges but also intriguing solutions. A client recently inquired about calligraphy calling cards and wanted us to do her name in Cyrillic. I immediately contact the head of Society of Scribes and emailed probably everyone on that  contact list inquiring about a Cyrillic calligrapher. To my dismay, there were none to be found! Google proved fruitless. I tried to hack a Spencerian script but it really wasn’t getting close to what we were going for, and me being the Idahoan that I am was as close to Russia as finding a native palm tree in our state. So the …

These letterpress calligraphy calling cards were done for Krista and we just love how the cobalt ink looked on the hot pink background when photographed. We are excited to announce dropped pricing (more for your buck) for the calligraphy calling card as well as extended options. We’ve also streamlined the process so now, instead of two separate transactions (calling cards and calligraphy), we’ve lumped that together and will do all the work for you. Check out the new calligraphy calling cards in the shop now! Calligraphy credits go to Kathryn of DellaCarta (option 2), Lisa Ridgely of Pen & Ink (option 3), and Emilie Friday (option 5). © 2010 by individual calligraphers for personal use only.

So you all know my love for Lisa Ridgely’s calligraphy. I don’t know what it is about her style, except that it really is SO unique. I’m always peeking over at her blog and recently she’s opened a shop on Big Cartel with a staggering collection of downloadable calligraphy content for personal use. As you may have seen my calligraphy calling cards before, I’m trying to expand the product to different calligraphy styles so you can order what suits your fancy. Lisa was kind enough to do my Mom’s name for me so I could give these to her on Mother’s Day. They turned out so awesome though, that in the end I couldn’t wait – SO Mom got them early! If you’ll notice on her card she has a new email – here at Dingbat Press! Come back around on Friday …

These letterpress calling cards were done as a giveaway over at The Bright Side Project awhile ago and I had the pleasure of working on the cards with fabulous calligrapher eDanae. As I’ve worked with more calligraphers, it’s a pleasure to see their styles. I thought at one point that all calligraphy looked the same. I have been proven wrong – like a good typeface, a calligrapher’s hand is quite unique and no two people have the same work. I love seeing how calligraphers can put their name to something, it’s such an amazing process to me! If you are interested in a set of letterpress printed calligraphy calling cards, check them out and look at the various cards I’ve done for others!
