All of my envelope calligraphy is done by hand. There may be slight variations in size, colour, style, margins, spacings and centering throughout the order. All custom orders are final upon return to the client. I will always do my best to provide progress photos and ensure everything is as perfect as possible!
Let customers speak for us
Nibs and Scripts was a wonderful service. I was able to reach out to Rodylyn and receive a response almost immediately and the communication was thorough. I purchased a valentine’s day card and a custom anniversary one, both designs turned out perfectly and surpass my expectations! The texture of the card has amazing quality. The process was very smooth and had fast delivery. Very pleased, still in awe of these cards and will definitely buy again :)
Rodylyn's work is gorgeous and she's a breeze to work with! I came to her with an idea for calligraphy pieces capturing words and phrases that my toddler mispronounces. She did a wonderful job of working with me to understand what I wanted the pieces to look and feel like. They were produced and delivered perfectly and on schedule. Already planning to work with her again. Thanks, Rodylyn!
Nibs and Scripts did a custom Lunar New Year card design. They were professional at every step. They accommodated any revisions I had and delivered them ahead of schedule. I highly recommend them.
We worked with Nibs & Scripts for our wedding invitations and the result was stunning! We kept on receiving compliments from our guests on the beautiful calligraphy of our envelopes. Rodylyn was great to discuss ideas and the turnaround time was perfect. We highly recommend!
I L-O-V-E all of these beautiful cards!
Thank you for the card it's so well done, both on the inside and outside :D
People were super impressed with the [Baby Shower] sign; so many compliments, with folks in disbelief "wait, someone wrote [that sign[ with their hand?!". Thanks again!
The card looks fantastic, I can’t wait to send it!
I Choose You (Mothers Day)
The designs are wonderful and shipped on time.
...thank you for the beautiful card. Its sooooo beautiful, thank you..happy lunar new year to you and your family.
I got a postcard to send to family for Lunar New Year and it was perfect. The design and the foil was so pretty and I got a picture of it on the fridge after it arrived.
I loved the variety of cards and they were well made and beautiful. Everyone loved them and I will definitely be ordering more stationary
Nibs & Scriptss calligraphy delivers on quality, speed, and human touch. Rodylyn worked with me one-on-one to design a Christmas order that fit my aesthetic, budget, and timeline, and within 30 minutes we had all the details hashed out. Each card was stylized personalized for my intended recipients, and Rodylyn even delivered the cards to me herself within one week of my order. I would recommend her thoughtful approach and delightful designs to anyone that need professional calligraphy!
Best customer service and a pleasure to deal with. Cards are absolutely beautiful. Will definitely be purchasing again
