I am a wedding and event calligrapher since October 2001. What had humble beginnings evolved into a business that has surpassed boundaries of state lines and coastlines. I have worked with brides in all 50 states and a few countries, too. I have addressed envelopes to Bette Midler, Billy Crystal, Diana Ross, Huey Lewis, as well as the loved ones and family members of my clients, everyday people.

All my work is by hand. I encourage my clients to consider colored inks to compliment their theme or color scheme. I delight in trying new fonts and lettering styles--really make the envelopes pop and stand out! Ink outside the box, as I like to say.

It's your special event. Make a memorable invitation extra special for your guests with beautiful hand-lettered addressing. Read less

Lori was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end! Her initial email contained a helpful fact sheet on addressing etiquette. All of her existing calligraphy options were beautiful, but when there wasn't an exact match for the font on my invitation she offered to match it and add it to her collection - how cool is that? She chose a beautiful, slate gray color ink to really complement my invites. Her prices, including shipping, were very reasonable, especially considering the quality of her work. And after trying to address a few "straggler" invites on my own, I now realize how much time and money she saved me - it's something I am so happy I left to a pro. The invites look beautiful and everyone who has seen them has been wowed by the special touch Lori's calligraphy provided!

We could not have been happier with Lori and her calligraphy services. She helped us with addressing invitations and reception place cards. She was extremely knowledgable about formal invitation etiquette (which is what we wanted), thoughtful in her advice, was accommodating with color selection, had a large selection of font choices, was timing, a great communicator and delivered amazing final product. We chose "Nelson" in a beautiful grey. We will definitely use her services down the road for something else and would recommend her to anyone and everyone. Thanks Lori for making our wedding that much more special.

Lori did our custom wedding certificate, and it was absolutely beautiful! I found her on Etsy and worked with her offline. She was lightning fast with responses and an absolute pleasure to work with. I could not speak more highly of the quality of her product or the experience itself. We even used her examples of wedding certificates to come up with the wording of our own. Highest recommendation!!

Lori was so pleasant to work with (one of my favorite vendors). We had her do calligraphy on our escort cards and table numbers for our Sept 20th, 2013 wedding; they turned out beautifully. She even quickly fixed a small spelling error on one of the cards and sent a new one just in time for the wedding. Added a very sophisticated touch to our venue. Stress free and highly recommended.

Words cannot express how pleased we were with everything that Lori provided for our wedding. Even my fiance was a little apprehensive about having someone write our invitations. He was was blown away with her talent, and loved receiving compliments on how beautiful our invitations were. Having the invites addressed gave our wedding that extra touch we were looking for.

We are so thankful for everything that Lori did for us. She went above and way beyond our expectations. Being the frazzled bride I was. I asked her a couple of days before the wedding if she would be able to write on some signs. The sweet lady that she is said, "of course" and even picked up some of our wedding decorations from our rental company that I needed her to write on. She met up with us the next day later 1 day before the wedding to give us the rest of the decorations.

It's the extra little details that pull weddings together and gives it a personal touch. Having your invitations, menus, chalkboards, directional signs and beverage station written in beautiful writing gave it just what we were looking for.

BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL!!

Lori calligraphed an amazing quote that I sent to her. This was an important and very meaningful piece because it was the gift that I gave to my husband on our wedding day. Lori was so timely and wonderful with communication, and these were just added bonuses to the fact that the work she does is priceless and so elegant. My husband was brought to tears with this beautiful gift. Her prices are so great, and she assured me that the product would get to me safely and securely, and as promised, it did.

I also must comment on how warm and sweet Lori is, which only adds to her lovely talent. Her great communication and assurance that my gift was going to be so kindly taken care of was so special. This is one of the most important gifts I will ever give, and Lori really helped make it a wonderful experience. The really cool thing was that it was so obvious how invested she was in making our day so special. She took it upon herself to make sure every detail was perfect and saw it through to the very end. Anyone planning a wedding or a big event knows how many details there are to think about, and once this project was in Lori's hands, I knew there was one less thing for me to worry about.

Anyone that wants to work with someone who is so genuinely passionate about her work and making sure that her clients are happy, must contact Lori. I know that any time from here on out that we need anything calligraphed, Lori is without question, the one that we will go to. Thanks, Lori!

Having Lori address my wedding invitations was one of the best decisions I made during wedding planning. It took a huge job off my plate, and the work she did went far above and beyond what I was expecting or even hoping for. Without my even asking, Lori offered to match the font in my wedding invitations for the addresses and did a fantastic job doing so. The work she did was beautiful, professional, and timely. Not to mention her rates are incredibly reasonable. I would recommend her to anyone.

Lori was fantastic, one of our best vendors. She wrote all the calligraphy for our invitations, and day of materials. She worked with our paper designer to ensure the ink color and style flowed perfectly with our overall theme. We were amazed how beautiful everything was - and also how perfect! No errors in 225 invites! Her work on the chalk boards was also impeccable. Lori is efficient, accurate and creative. What more can you ask for!

Lori was our calligrapher on all our paper products--escort cards, table numbers, labels for various objects at the wedding--and did an a beautiful job. Everything looked incredible. Not only were we happy with the work itself, but Lori was extremely easy and pleasant to work with. She was very flexible in responding to our constantly changing needs, and very prompt and responsive in her communication. Highly recommended!

Lori was my very favorite vendor to work with. She was lightening fast to respond, so affordable, and the work that she produced was fantastic. I was THRILLED! I had her do something custom and she did each and every envelope different. It made me want to cry! Her penmanship is seriously a gift and this was my favorite "splurge" of the whole wedding!!

Lori did calligraphy writing on chalk boards for my daughters wedding which included a large menu, seating and welcome signs. They chalkboards were beautiful, and exactly how I envisioned and asked for! She even caught a spelling error and corrected. Lori kept in touch with me with emails through the planning and picked up the chalk boards when she began working on them, delivered to the venue and also offered to go to the vendor I rented them from to clean them!! She always offered an encouraging word in her emails and was friendly over the phone.

I was referred to Lori from the place where I ordered my invitations. I was looking to have my marriage certificate completed by a calligrapher. Lori was wonderful and met us in person to get our information, was prompt with her responses and had a quick turn around time for mailing it back to us. The calligraphy on the certificate looks very professional and we couldn't be happier with it. We would highly recommend her to anyone we know.

Lori does beautiful work and was able to accommodate our tight schedule. She was also flexible about sending various pieces she was working on to various addresses - (table numbers, escort cards, gift tags, etc.) And she did a fantastic job while assembling and mailing out the actual wedding invitations. The calligraphy was beautiful and fit our invitation style perfectly. I can't recommend Lori enough!

Lori was very helpful as I scrambled to get her addresses in batches. When I made mistakes -- accidentally misspelling names on the master list, for example -- Lori was happy to provide do-overs to cover my errors. Guests commented on the beauty of her work, and I was happy to provide something so special to them. Would definitely recommend her to others. Lori knows wedding etiquette but is also very flexible about accommodating newfangled traditions. We even took her advice and mailed an invitation to the president and the pope just for fun. We got a response from the White House. We're still waiting on the Vatican!

Lori was amazing to work with! Her monoline calligraphy prices drew me in, but it was her easy personality and flexibility that sealed the deal. She was WONDERFUL to work with even when I threw her crazy, last minute projects. And my guests loved her calligraphy. More than one said the outside of the invitation (which featured Lori's calligraphy) was one of the most beautiful they'd seen. Don't hesitate to work with Lori - she's a gem!

Lori is a pleasure to work with and we would highly recommend her service! While we were fortunate to live near her and meet her in person, I imagine she is just as professional, responsive, and flexible with brides who are only able to work with her through email and phone. Lori offers a wide variety of calligraphy styles and ink colors. Her work is beautiful and we received numerous compliments from guests after they received our invitations. We really weren't planning on hiring a calligrapher and happened to find Lori through our coordinator. Her prices are so reasonable and the work is so good there is really no reason not to have her turn your invitations into works of art and perhaps the best part is then you don't have to address any of them yourself!

I highly recommend Lori Raines for wedding calligraphy. She did the calligraphy for my wedding invitation envelopes and place cards. Not only was she responsive, professional, and reasonably priced, she went the extra mile to match the font and text color from our wedding invitations. I was extremely pleased with her work and received many compliments from family and friends.

Working with Lori was one of the most seamless stressfree portions of planning my wedding. She was not only personable but a true professional. She provided me with etiquette information and answers to my many questions. Her service was quick yet flawless and thought it was a great value when compared to other calligrapher's prices, especially in NYC! I strongly recommend Lori's work.

Preparing for a wedding is difficult enough, but when you're both in the military, it's really a challenge. My husband and I are both in the military and our mothers played a huge part in pulling our wedding together. One of the best ideas my mother had was to have our invitations addressed by a calligrapher. Lori Raines Calligraphy Studio came highly recommended from a friend of my mother's from her daughter's wedding. Lori was so incredibly helpful from the beginning. Many of our guests were military and retired military and she was well-versed on the etiquette for addressing their envelopes. The envelopes were received, addressed, and returned to us in much shorter time than we thought we'd need and they were absolutely beautiful. Several family members kept their envelopes and in fact, one of my cousins has since booked her services for 2010 as well and a close friend of mine is planning on doing the same as she was recently engaged to be married as well. It was a relief to just send the envelopes off and not worry about them. Our budget was not huge, and her prices fit in perfectly within those perimeters. Beautiful work, personable, professional. I would highly recommend using the services of this calligrapher for any event needing beautiful lettering done.

I was referred to Lori through my wedding planner, Nora at Bridal Bliss and was thrilled with Lori's artwork. My invitation envelopes and place cards were stunning and I couldn't have been happier with her attention to detail and quick turnaround. I found a few spelling mistakes that I myself had made and Lori was quick to write out new envelopes and send them to me within days. I highly recommend Lori for your calligrapher.

I used Lori Raines for my wedding and I LOVED her work and working with her! When I first started communicating with her, I had no idea she wasn't in the city I was in. I was hesitant at first but once we talked more, she made it so easy to work with her. Her turnaround time was very timely and work was amazing! I wanted black envelopes with white writing and although this could be challenging, Lori made it possible and all of my invited guests LOVED the contrast and to this day, still comment on how pretty their names were on the envelopes. Her prices were very competitive then and worth every cent and more! Wanting to plan something else just to use Lori!
