FINE HAND LETTERING
for all of your special day needs...

~ unique ~ elegant ~ beautiful ~ personal ~

If you a looking to add the ultimate personal touch to your wedding or other special event details, Hand Calligraphy may be the perfect printing technique for you. Graceful Expressions, which has been featured in BRIDES MICHIGAN among other media outlets, specializes in fine hand lettering and design for wedding, social, corporate events & design, or any other event or need that calls for an elegant, personal flourish.

I offer many unique, fine lettering styles, all done by hand. (seriously. no computer. no printer. no labels. just some ink and a pen) If you wish to complement your invitation lettering style, I can create a custom style just for you, complete with the appropriate matching ink color.

Since I established Graceful Expressions in 2004, I have personally lettered thousands of envelopes and other pieces serving hundreds of clients from around the world. From a simple bible inscription to seating scrolls, maracas to a comissioned piece now at Saint Andrews Golf Course in Scotland, Chalkboard logo art displayed at a major grocery store to a piece of work requested by the United States Air Force and many, many envelopes inbetween - this is a passion that I have had since a yound child, and my hand is not tired yet!

I would be honored to assist you on putting the ultimate personal touch on your event.

She actually did my seating cards for me and it was a wonderful experience. The least stressful part of planning a wedding on my own. She sent the cards out over night a couple days before the wedding (because she knew I would have last minute changes to my seating chart). The ink she used matched the stationary perfectly and I could not have asked for better service. She even called the day of delivery to ensure that the cards had arrived. Amazing service I would recommend her over and over!

Jen Buck is an amazing Calligrapher and her work is gorgeous! She created custom designed gift bags, a poster size seating chart, table numbers for our wedding as well as addressing out invitations! Jen is extremely kind, understanding, and does her best to really grasp your vision. From our first meeting, we just really clicked. We exchanged tons of emails, texts, and phone calls which kept the lines of communication open. She was always flexible and on time for any pick up or delivery. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs calligraphy for any occasion!

Brides beware! After emailing Jennifer months ahead of my wedding and meeting with her to confirm the details she bailed at the very last minute. To top it off my envelopes had already been put in the mail to her house, putting me even further behind!!!! She did not make arrangements to get them back to me even though she had wanted them sent to her house in the first place. She is entirely unreliable and kept confusing me with the other brides she was working with. After looking elsewhere, her prices are well above the standard $1.00 per envelope in the area for what I believe to be average work based on her samples.

Graceful Expressions Calligraphy and Fine Hand Lettering Design responded with the following comments:

I have had the honor of working with hundreds of brides/clients for the past 8 years. Never once, have I had to end a relationship, and it is something that I hope I never have to do again. There is only so much abuse one person can take, and I always treat anyone with the utmost respect and care and when that is not returned, it makes it very hard to have a positive relationship. I do what I do out of love and a passion for my hobby, but when you are abused and lied to by a person, it must stop. I made every effort, going out of my way to meet her at her office several times only for her to not have the materials and information ready as we had agreed upon because she was not organized. I felt horrible for weeks because I had to terminate our relationship, but hearing that Allison had the same exact issues with other vendors (Her photographer terminated their relationship two weeks before their wedding and she had issues with her invitation designer) assures me I did the right thing. I can show anyone who asks a notebook full of thank you letters and cards from my eight years working with clients, as well as recommendations from 100's of clients. I care very deeply about my clients, (who become great friends, in many cases!)and do my calligraphy out of a passion (not to make money) but will not tolerate verbal abuse and lying by anyone.

Jennifer did everything she could to make sure that my invitation (and Save-the-Date) envelopes were beautifully lettered, precisely centered, and delivered so fast I could hardly believe it. The prices were more than reasonable and I really appreciate Jennifer's expediency and professionalism.

Jennifer's caligraphy on the invitation envelopes was fantastic! We got so many positive comments back on her work. She also wrote out the reception table assignments on a framed blackboard. This, too, was done beautifully and creatively and will be a terrific keepsake from the day.
