Joyful Writing Girl


Mary Sherman offers modern calligraphy for events and special occasions. She delights in providing beautifully hand lettered place cards and envelope addressing adding luxury and sophistication to your special life moments and celebrations, in addition to a variety of calligraphy commissions.


About Us

Unlike a computer font, handwritten calligraphy is unique and special. An entire invitation in calligraphy, a menu, envelopes, or place cards, will add a striking design detail and leave an unforgettable impression for your guests. Flowing calligraphy on an invitation will set the tone and anticipation for your event weeks in advance.  

In this age of technology and digital fonts, perhaps we appreciate the art of personal hand-flourished lettering even more.  I look forward to working with you to bring your ideas and dreams to life! Please share with me your type of event, the date, and a brief description of your ideas to:
