Hiring a calligrapher

Working with a calligrapher is a rewarding experience that adds a real touch of quality to your project. To help ensure that we get the conversation started on the right foot, I’ve outlined a few common client categories. Feeling overwhelmed, already have an RFP, or just want to chat? Email me directly at david@masgrimes.com.

Work Inquiries

Commercial Clients

You are looking for calligraphy or lettering work for your brand or product. Shoot me an email that is descriptive of the work you have in mind. Include any details that you think might be important like timeline, budget, or organizational constraints.

Personal Commissions

My favorite part of calligraphy is sharing it with others. You have an awesome idea for a project that you’d like to commission, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Wedding and Special Events

I collaborate with local artists to incorporate calligraphy into the vision for your big day. From invitation design to table numbers, our studio has you covered. Looking to have outer envelopes hand-addressed? Have a guest list of less than 70 invitations? Please feel free to reach out.

Speaking Inquiries

Events and Conferences

Interested in hosting me to talk about calligraphy? I’d love to hear from you. I love connecting with other students, makers, and artists sharing with them how calligraphy has changed my life. Reach out and let’s talk details.

Instruction Inquiries

Looking to Learn

If you feel like you are ready to push off with Engrosser’s Script and pursue pointed pen calligraphy with passion, please reach out. Including some samples of your work can help us get the conversation rolling, but is not necessary. One-on-one sessions meet once a week, and sessions are booked four lessons at a time.

If you ever have the opportunity to work with such a talented young man, I highly recommend you don’t pass it up. He is a gifted calligrapher as his works shows, but what you can’t see is how exceptional he is at teaching. His ability to explain and illustrate complex concepts as well as his passion for the art has made every lesson I have had both incredibly helpful and fun.
