Upcoming Calligraphy Classes


She made the process so easy and so fun! Least stressful wedding thing I’ve done. Her invites are reasonably priced and she sends them out for you and designs the envelope too. Would absolutely recommend!

The creativity that goes into each piece will blow you away. There’s never been a time that I haven’t been so excited to see what they’ve come up with for each individual situation.

Not only is Christy at the Ink Cafe incredibly talented and professional, she is a joy to work with… The final product was exactly what I had envisioned in my head.

I had a time crunch for the shower, and Christy happily accommodated my rushed time limit. She created 3 different designs for me to choose from, and she made any tweaks/changes that I requested. All of her designs were adorable…I was having trouble choosing one.
