Based on a recommendation from our wedding planner, we ended up working with Meant to Be Calligraphy for all of our wedding day paper goods. Michele addressed all of our wedding invitations as well as prepared all of our place cards, day-of signage, etc., and wow, did it all look gorgeous! So many of our guests commented on her beautiful calligraphy. Michele is very talented, flexible and so friendly. I really enjoyed working with her and couldn't be happier with the work she did for us. Thank you!

Meant to Be Calligraphy is an amazing find!! Michele is so incredibly talented and gracious to work with. I was astonished at the skill she has and never would have imagined that I could get such high-quality, beautiful, personalized pieces for a reasonable price. I hired Michele to do a few different pieces, with various colors and styles of calligraphy. Her work was unfailing in its quality. Her patience with my decisions, her recommendations when I asked her expert opinion, and her willingness to take on various projects (menus, seating charts, etc.) showed me that in addition to being an incredibly talented artist, Michele is a true professional.

I added all sorts of fun touches to my wedding that I hope will make it a beautiful event (in ten days!) but it is Michele's work that stands out for its unique touch and beauty. Her elegant calligraphy has created pieces that I will treasure for a lifetime, and they are clearly not something that a computer could have produced. She is worth every penny!! I give Michele and Meant to Be Calligraphy my highest recommendation. And I will likely be back for more special event pieces in the future...

Michele Hatty Fritz of Meant to be Calligraphy was wonderful to work with. She offers a wide range of styles, has many wonderful ideas for her clients to consider, and offered invaluable advice to me throughout the process. Equally important, she is a delight to work with -- very friendly, very accommodating. Our invitation envelopes were beautiful. She finished them ahead of schedule, and we received many, many compliments once our guests started to receive them. We had the same experience -- beautiful work, finished ahead of schedule -- with our escort cards.

I'm so happy that we decided to hire Michele to address our invitations! The calligraphy is simply stunning. Our guests were in awe when they received the invitations. Michele is very easy to work with, even when a couple of last minute changes and additions occurred. She even delivered the finished envelopes to me. I highly recommend Meant To Be Calligraphy. It's so worth the small extra expense to have personalizes, gorgeous calligraphy on the invitations!

It was an absolute joy to work with Michele of Meant to be Calligraphy. Her work was outstanding and I could tell how much time and care she put into her designs. We had Michele address the invitations, create the escort cards, and make some other signs for the wedding. She also created a jpeg of her calligraphy for the menu card. We received so many compliments on the invitations and the escort cards and we know it was worth it to splurge on calligraphy. Michele has a lot of fonts to choose from and is willing to accommodate to your wedding's needs. She is easy to work with and easy to reach by email or phone. I'd highly recommend her!

Michele at Meant To Be Calligraphy addressed the envelopes for our save-the-dates and invitations, and she also created our place cards and seating chart. She did an outstanding job. She was the only calligrapher I could find who offered a style that fit the art deco aesthetic of our wedding, and she was extremely easy to work with. She picked up and dropped off materials at our home and even scrambled to accommodate a place card for a last-minute guest. She also helped us figure out what kinds of paper, ink, and arrangement of text made sense for the look we were trying to achieve. Michele is organized and meticulous, and throughout the process I had total trust that she would take care of what we needed. Michele's vision and product are top-notch, and I really enjoyed working with her.

Michele did calligraphy for our invitations, table cards, and escort cards. She was very quick and did a fantastic job - I even had one guest say she kept the envelope of the invitation because she'd never seen her name written so beautifully! It was so convenient that Michele did both pick-up and drop-off - it saved me time when I needed it most! Michele also helped me find the exact escort card I was looking for - she really is a pleasure to work with! I am keeping her information in case I ever need calligraphy again!
