betsy dunlap

kate from saturate just sent over a fantastic link to calligraphic artist betsy dunlap. betsy creates beautiful (and i mean beautiful) hand-written calligraphy for custom use. i wish i could buy pages of these and frame them in antique wooden frames and fill a wall top to bottom- they're so lovely. but then again, i've always had a thing for cool handwriting. you can view more of betsy's work right here and contact her for pricing and custom work. if you're getting married or announcing something special, betsy's work would be a wonderful investment.

This is some seriously gorgeous stuff. I can't wait to send my custom clients her way.

Wow! These are so gorgeous. Now all I need to do is convince my boyfriend we should get married based on the potential of Kate's handwriting on wedding invites!!!!

gorgeous! i chose not to have professional calligraphy because nothing out there seemed worth the extra cost... but this would have been MORE than worth it! and $1.80 for inner and outer envelopes is very reasonable.

I agree with jerseyfresh, I wish I'd known about this when preparing my wedding, I definitely would have splurged for such gorgeous lettering!

I think I am the lucky dog today! My wedding invitations are on press this very moment and I've been so sad about the calligraphy options until now. All I have to do is say little design*spongey prayers that she can fit me into her calendar.

I just hired Betsy to do the calligraphy for one of my clients!... I'm SO excited to have samples of the end result to show off! Her work is GREAT!!! I'm especially in love with the "Elle Reynolds" sample above...

so glad you guys like betsy's work! i finally figured out a way to bring it into my home- i asked betsy if i could pay for her to write out one of my favorite short poems: carl sandburg's "fog". can't wait to see it when she's through!

I saw her work in Martha Stewart Weddings and tried for a similar look, to no avail! I only wish I had the budget for her amazing services!

umm...it might go against the idea of unique, but it would be amazing if she would create her own font- I would love that. i bet it would be #1 on typographica.com!
