Welcome To Special
Yes, you can settle for alphabets straight out of the can. You can settle for fonts. But why should you, when you can afford the real thing? Why be content with the machine-made uniformity and cold precision of ditto...ditto...ditto, when you can have the art of calligraphy?
Think about it: every stroke a calligrapher makes in his or her lifetime is unique. One-of-a-kind. With fonts, on the other hand, nothing is unique. It's all out of a can.
The handwritten word enchants with its spontaneity, its diversity, its personality. When it comes to making an impression, calligraphy easily trumps fonts not because it is perfect, but because it is human.
Calligraphy is truly special, and the more that font-based media penetrate into all aspects of our lives, the more special calligraphy becomes.
There are other reasons an invitation from 21st Century Scribes is special. We have access to over 1000 papers from the orient and around the world. We have the mature design skills to advise you wisely on the selection and combination of these papers to achieve maximum impact in a wide range of formats including the roll-up scroll, the expansive accordion, and the folded square, which opens like a gift-package.
When you purchase your invitations from 21st Century Scribes, we create a custom monogram for you, which you can use for years after your wedding to personalize your embosser or wax seal stamp, stationery, thank you cards, and other items.
And finally, we are not your typical invitation provider because all our invitations are custom-designed especially for you. We are not an off-the-shelf, take-it-or-leave-it service.
Welcome to 21st Century Scribes! Welcome to Special!
If you have decided to create your own invitations from scratch, or by using some sort of pre-fab kit, naturally you want them to be absolutely brilliant. Otherwise, why bother?
We have an option guaranteed to draw ooooh's and aaaah's from your guests: let one of our master calligraphers handwrite your invitations. You do the rest.
It's so simple. You email us the wording of your invitation, response card, return address, or whatever, and we email you gorgeous handwritten ready-to-print images in the calligraphic style of your choice. You print them on your papers, mail them out, then sit back and wait for the raves to come pouring in.
When you send handcrafted invitations to your guests, it speaks volumes about your desire and commitment to please them. Go all the way by using handcrafted words, rather than fonts, to invite them to your celebration of love.
