Quick Jump To » Comments

I’m really excited to introduce you to the super sweet AND talented Jenn Gillespie of Calligraphy by Jennifer today! As with many of you, I’ve had the pleasure of “meeting” Jenn virtually through blogging/facebook/twitter…  she’s always such a caring, cheerful voice that consistently shares gorgeous wedding & event eye candy on her company facebook page and blog.

Handwritten calligraphy always adds such a beautiful, personal touch to weddings & special occasions, and Jenn is a pro at more than 35 calligraphy styles! She specializes in exquisite modern and traditional hand lettering for all occasions – from weddings and event stationery to holiday cards, hand stamps, envelope addressing, and more.



This week at HWTM, Jenn G. has offered to giveaway a $100 Calligraphy Credit to a lucky someone that’s on the market for some beautiful hand lettering for an upcoming mailing or special event!

To enter, just post a comment here mentioning what you (or maybe your friend/family member) would love to use the credit for – OR which style of calligraphy you like best from Jenn’s portfolio. Giveaway ends next Thursday, December 9th at midnight PST.

Thanks, Jenn! =)
