Handlettering is expressive and meaningful. You know it was created by a human with care and creativity. The image of the invite on top is one of the best and original uses of handlettering I have seen. Letterpress uses dies that press the letters and color into the paper. Handlettering is more impressive than any typestyle out there. The personal touch it conveys cannot be matched. The invite is by Linda and Harrriett.

I am lucky to have been working with Maria Thomas for the last few years on collaborative projects. Seeing how impressive lettering is and using it on printed items is so gratifying to me as an artist. We just completed new wedding and bar/bat mitzvah albums that incorporate handlettering monograms and initials. I can't wait until their release at the National Stationery Show this May.
