Belles Lettres Calligraphy
Barbara is an absolute dream to work with. Her flawless calligraphy of the envelopes transformed my daughter's very formal wedding invitations from beautiful to magnificent! She is very professional, stays on a strict schedule, and delivers unbelievable quality! This entire experience was a pleasure and I highly recommend her talents to everyone, for any occasion.
Barbara just finished the envelopes for my wedding invitations, and they are spectacular!! I couldn't be more thrilled with how they turned out! Not only is she a talented artist, but Barbara was so easy to work with. She has many beautiful styles to choose from, and she walked me through making my decisions. While she offered me great guidance and answered all my questions, she also encouraged me to stay true to my personal preferences.
Barbara was thorough, and I could not believe how quickly she completed my order. I trust her 100% and highly recommend her services for any occasion. I cannot wait for all my guests to receive our stunning invitations! This special touch really sets the tone for the entire celebration!
Working with Barbara and Belles Lettres was such a wonderful experience! Barbara was able to calligrapher our envelopes and send them back to me in record time! She was very thorough and detailed and everything looked perfect! I have received lots of compliments on the beautiful calligraphy already! I look forward to working with Barbara on future projects. Would highly recommend, very professional and beautiful work. Thanks again!!
Barbara was an absolute joy to work with. She did the envelopes for my wedding invitations and they came out beautifully! She provided a very helpful FAQ guide that answered questions I didn't even know I should be asking! She is so organized and was able to complete my invitations quickly. The entire process was enjoyable and stress-free. I've received tons of compliments on my envelopes and would highly recommend her.
Excellent service and my cards were made very quickly and beautiful
Barbara created amazing Christmas cards for us this year. She helped with design and layout. But, most important was the calligraphy addresses on the envelopes - absolutely amazing work!
Barbara designed the envelopes for my wedding invitations. It was a real pleasure working with her. Barbara was extremely friendly and accomodating. We met right away and my envelopes came out beautiful. I highly recommend her!
I cannot say enough good things about Barbara. Her work is incredible and she is the most prompt, thoughtful, and professional vendor that I have worked with. She did an incredible job addressing our invites and I am looking forward to the other reception pieces that we will have as well. I already find myself trying to come up with a reason to work with her again!
I had a wonderful experience with Belles Lettres Calligraphy. Barbara took personal care to arrange the calligraphy of our wedding invitations and were completed very quickly. The calligraphy was exquisite, perfection! We couldn't be happier and have gotten a lot of complements! The calligraphy was the perfect elegant touch to our invitations.
Thank you so much!
Working with Barbara for our wedding has been a great pleasure. She makes everything easy and stress free. Not to mention that she is always full of great ideas! We have asked her to do our save the dates, invitations, escort cards table names and menus. At the last minute we also asked her to complete wax seals on all our invitations and she really came through for us. Not only did she contact the seal manufacturer, but she was able to get it all complete and back to us within a week!
I highly recommend Belles Lettres to anyone who wants to add that special touch to their wedding or occasion. Barbara is always professional and easy to communicate with. Since we have started working with her I think we have emailed her at least 3-4 dozen times.
I cannot wait for our next big event so we can have Belles Lettres do our invitations!
Barbara's work is amazing. Not only does she do beautiful calligraphy, but she also is extremely quick and professional. She made the whole process so easy for us and lead us through the process. I received so many compliments on her work and was extremely pleased with her work. I would recommend her over and over again!
Barbara's creation is one that can never be replicated. It hangs in my mother-in-law's kitchen for her to see every day, all day. Beautiful, flawless, one and only...
Barbara was wonderful to work with from the first email to the final product! She was extremely responsive and very flexible. Our invitations came in almost two weeks late and Barbara was still able to have them done for our ideal mailing date. She was a great help with the proper way to address the invitations, a task that could be overwhelming, she made easy!
I thought working with Barbara Witosky was wonderful. I was a little concerned as I live in NYC and she was in NJ and I had no time to be venturing out for a calligrapher. We communicated solely on email and I sent her my things via USPS and she sent them back the same.
They arrived when she said they would and were AMAZING. Wil use her again because it was great!
I came in at the 11th hour with a project for a family member's birthday. I did not think she would be able to work with me because of the time crunch. Not only were my expectations met, but her product reflected something that looked like it took weeks to do. I have a deep appreciation of the written word, and Barbara was able to incorporate my intention of the piece and reflected my feelings perfectly. Now THAT is an artist!

Barbara W of Belles Lettres Calligraphy in two words: Creative, Flawless, Thoughtful, & Professional!! OK, 4 words… Impossible to squeeze Barbara, her wonderful talents, and excellent services into just 2 words.
As the mother of the bride, who knew the daunting task of addressing all those wedding invitations, reply cards, & place cards correctly and legibly could be such a breeze…. easy, interesting, and fun! Well, it wouldn’t have been for our daughter’s wedding if we hadn’t had the great fortune and pleasure to work with Barbara. Clever, creative, interested, low key, prompt, observant, organized, responsive, no errors (not 1!) and just plain easy (and a pleasure) to do business… All important qualities in planning any event and absolutely critical when organizing a wedding, our only daughters. Not quite sure how she makes knocking out all those stunningly beautifully addressed invites seem so easy and gets it done so promptly.
Barbara was interested enough to ask about the bride & groom and what they (and we) wanted to say with the calligraphy. She listened, looked at a sample invite, and pleasantly agreed to provide examples of exactly what we requested (same font & ink color as the words on a very fun whimsical invitation). She just as pleasantly suggested we could add an element of creative fun in the style of writing and offered to provide examples. She was right. We took one look at her clever and beautiful suggestions and never looked back at our original request!
Everything (beautifully addressed invitations, stuffed envelopes, place cards, etc) was delivered on time and error free. The place cards (small wooden “blackboard” plant labels on sticks) could and may have been a pain. Barbara got them turned around (quantity of about 110 in a shockingly quick timeframe. She even wrote a selected quote/verse for flower seed packet favors as a gift to the bride and groom. Very thoughtful and sweet of her.
Everyone, the bride, groom, us (brides parental units), and guests noticed and appreciated the beautiful yet readable calligraphy… A wonderful detail which helped make the wedding that much more special and memorable for all! Can’t tell you how comforting it was to work with such a pro. Thanks Barbara, you did a fantastic job and made the planning and hosting of a wonderful wedding soo much easier!!
Belles Lettres did a great job! The invitations were beautiful and I would use them again in a heartbeat! The pricing for the invitations was different than the original pricing I was given and it fairly standard to others out there but keep in mind for all calligraphers that you will need to be as accurate as possible before you start because if your addresses are wrong or your envelopes are off, you will be paying more for the corrections!
The price was more than reasonable to do the calligraphy on my custom-made placecards. Her calligraphy was absolutely beautiful and she had the foresight to hold onto a few extra cards for me in the event I had last minute changes (which, of coruse, I did). I would definitely recommend Belles Lettres to anyone.
I had a poem calligraphied for my husband and it was absolutely stunning. The price was reasonable, and it was done so quickly! It is hanging beautiful in our apartment!!
I can't begin to explain what a pleasure it was to work with you. Not
only was your work beyond elegant & beautiful, but your service was
outstanding. Of all the vendors I worked with in planning my wedding,
you were by far the most fair, efficient, responsive, and organized.
Thank you again for all your hard work. The envelope you addressed to us
is in a frame and something we will have forever. I would recommend you
to everyone and anyone planning a wedding.
I wanted to write a brief note to say "thank you" for the wonderful job
you did on our invitations. The calligraphy was simply beautiful, and
made a very elegant statement about our event to our guests. I wanted
to also say how appreciative I was of your flexibility in accommodating
our tight schedule. Even with the quick turn around time, the
invitations came out perfectly!
Barbara- it is my complete pleasure to recommend you to anyone with a need for exquisitely done calligraphy. You are a total professional and a delight to work with. Jenny and I were more than thrilled with the high quality of the lettering, the custom ink coloring, your entire approach to the job at hand. Your pricing is fair, you are timely-even early in some cases, you made many wonderful and appropriate suggestions - we really enjoyed the whole experience. I only wish I were having another party soon so we could start again!
...your work was beautiful, that you were very prompt, so easy to work with... the poem brought my husband to tears! I would definitely recommend you to anyone looking for an impressive calligraphy job for any occasion.
"I can't tell you how many compliments I have received regarding how
beautiful the calligraphy was on our invitations - literally, everyone
just says 'wow!' I am so happy I was fortunate enough to find Barbara
and Belles Lettres -- the lettering was the perfect introduction to the
wedding! There are a million things to think about when planning a
wedding -- don't let this one slip away!
Moreover, Barbara is so professional and easy to work with -- she is
super responsive to all questions and made time to meet me (3 times!!)
to pickup or deliver additional envelopes for us. Thank you so much
Barbara and Belles Lettres!"
