Hello friends – I’m slowly but surely getting back to the Joy Unscripted blog!! Yes, it’s been a while, but I have learned a lot over the past 5 years owning my wedding stationery and calligraphy business, and am excited to share helpful information on topics like: 

  • how much do wedding invitations cost
  • what wedding reception signage material is best for your overall vibe
  • general timelines for wedding invitations and signage
  • wedding invitation address etiquette
  • biggest mistakes to avoid with your wedding stationery
  • place cards vs escort cards and when to use them
  • available wedding rentals
  • when to book your wedding invitation designer
  • eco-friendly wedding invitations 
  • learning to hand-letter
  • the basic strokes of calligraphy 

If there’s something you want to see on the Joy Unscripted Blog, let me know!

If you’re new here, be sure to check out what Joy Unscripted is all about!

What started as some doodles in the margins of overly organized college notes is now my full-time job! I’m a self-taught calligrapher whose signature style is a loose, modern script, but continue to learn and grow more with each client project. Thanks to some great friends, mentors, and free and paid resources I’ve expanded from just pointed-pen and brush calligraphy to day-of signage and my main focus is full invitation design.

I post behind-the-scenes videos often on Instagram and without a doubt, the most common question I get is, “what pen/marker/chalk did you use for that?” So the very next blog is going to chat about materials, and give you a special discount code for my BRAND NEW Materials Guide! Stay tuned y’all… it’s a good one.
