for weddings & events
I'm Karissa and I love all things paper.
My work is inspired by penman of the past and intricate monograms. I enjoy using classic styles of calligraphy and giving them a modern day look for weddings and other events. I am based in South Carolina and work with clients from around the country.
Take the stress out of having to address your envelopes. You send me the envelopes, I write on them and send them back. It's that easy!
Menus, table numbers, place cards, and escort cards. This is great for a cohesive look between your invitations and the day of the wedding.
Do you want calligraphic elements for your stationery? I digitize my calligraphy and you have it printed by your stationer.
I truly cannot say enough about Karissa’s work, and wholeheartedly recommend Pretty Written Things! Not only is she phenomenally talented, she is efficient, kind, and communicates every step of the way to ensure everything is to your liking. The envelopes for my wedding are even better than I could have imagined, and I’m so excited to send them out to our guests. Karissa’s calligraphy has been my favorite detail of wedding planning thus far, and I’m so glad I stumbled upon her work on Etsy. Thank you so much, Karissa!
Beautiful work! Commissioned hand calligraphy for my wedding invitations and envelopes. No one else was willing to do 15 by hand. So glad I found Karissa! She not only took on the challenge, but exceeding my expectations! Even with a hurricane on its way, she made sure they arrived safe.
Karissa is ridiculously talented and a joy to interact with. We couldn’t be any happier with our invitation calligraphy!
The most beautiful and perfect invitations I could have ever imagined. Thanks Karissa for making our big day SO special already!!! A pleasure to work with and prompt communication/shipping. The best!
We were so happy with our wedding invitations, they were absolutely beautiful!!! Not only were the invitations done to perfection but Karissa was a pleasure to work with. I cannot recommend Karissa’s work enough!!
Karissa was an actual dream to work with. We used her for our Save the Dates, Wedding Invitations, and Rehearsal Dinner Invitations. She was quick to respond, showed us samples, and made the entire process easy and seamless. Her work is absolutely stunning and I can’t tell you how many compliments we received! I’d highly recommend her!
Karissa was so lovely to work with and did an amazing job mixing a custom color for our envelopes! She is highly responsive and took great care in making sure our order was absolutely perfect! I would DEFINITELY recommend her to brides looking for calligraphy for wedding invites or save the dates! 5 stars! I cannot wait to get these in the mail!!!
I absolutely loved our wedding invites!! Karissa was amazing to work with and made sure every last detail down to the perfect shade of blue was perfected for our invites. We are already getting so many compliments from our guests on how beautiful they turned out! Thank you!!!
I sent in my wedding invitation envelopes to be calligraphed and I was so nervous sending them out but Karissa was so communicative and easy to reach in email she put my mind at ease. She was so responsive in emails and even kept me up to date with the progress which I appreciated. I just sent them out and I keep having my friends and family comment on how amazing the calligraphy looks! I would 100% go back to Karissa for all my calligraphy needs.
