Description of Italic Calligraphy Place card

Place card in Italic Calligraphy

This Italic style, also named Chancery Cursive, was developed in Italy during the Renaissance and  it is one of the most popular styles used in contemporary Western calligraphy. The swash capitals I use here were established as a prestige letter form by the early sixteenth century, principally in Italy and Spain. This Italic handwriting  draws its shapes on Carolingian handwriting.

The papers and materials used here are an example for you to see how the final result can be. You can choose the cards that you like and send them for me to write on them. I will be more than pleased to help you find the style you need according to the characteristic of the event.

As you see, the price per place card is $1; if a more elaborated style is desired, the price could increase.
