a creative studio

giving a fresh approach to the art of beautiful writing

There is nothing quite as captivating as personalized items and handwritten goods. We find ourselves attracted to anything involving the two; this is why we take the effort to create thank you cards, gift tags, or even little love notes. We cherish those items because they make us feel closer to one another in a hectic digital age. You want your stationery to create this same impression for your guests.

Pretty Written Things is a calligraphy and design studio lovingly started after a casual hobby involving a brush pen and some worksheets turned into a passion for studying traditional calligraphic art, penmanship, and the history surrounding the two. Pretty Written Things offers custom calligraphy and design, in traditional and modern scripts, for weddings and other special events worldwide. 

Calligraphy is the most intimate, private, and spontaneous expressive means. Like a fingerprint or voice it is unique with every person.
