Inside Calligraphy

Updated: Nov 26, 2021

On some of our projects, you might have seen some calligraphy name tags, menus, signage or other.

Take a look behind the scenes of this calligraphy service we offer at Antoinette Design through this article ...


Sophie-Caroline (aka "Soka") is the one behind our calligraphy hand writing service. Self-thought, she began to learn by observing any writing on events & projects which she could participate and/or organise. Afterwards, she took part to a course of old style calligraphy called « à l’ancienne » to learn manipulating a true feather and different inks. Now, she's pursuing her training « à l’ancienne » to be able to include the old style way to her modern writing and interpret by herself.


The calligrapher begins with defining the style according to the event / the project. She defines a global aesthetic of it with the customer. To help on that, we have a large book including all the styles we can suggest.









Once the red thread is defined, it is necessary to choose the support ; it can be paper, wood, concrete, ceramic, or even glass. You can be more creative & fun with the support, and imagine something like fruits, vegetables, leaves, ...




Indeed, the support type will be important to define the color ink and the choice between a pen or a felt-tip pen according to the wished style.


Our in-house calligrapher can create envelopes, name tags, invitations, cards, menus, welcome signs and many other elements. To complete a project, the client must send a complete list of what needs to be written. She sends a first draft to the client to confirm or adapt with some changes. Finally, she produces to the event placement, this service completing our decoration service.


So if you'd like to add a personal touch to your event and give an authentic sense to your project with some calligraphy , don't hesitate to get in touch !
