Calligraphy Fonts by Laura Worthington


I am a HUGE fan of Laura Worthington.  She’s a fabulous human being, as well as a top notch designer of beautiful calligraphy fonts.

As a gifted lettering artist and graphic designer she found her calling when she began designing type.

Her large selection of fonts can be found on Best Sellers lists all over the web and a large number have earned the honor of Rising Star and the Most Popular fonts annual list.

She has also had the honor of being interviewed as one of Myfonts “Creative Characters.” I can only dream:)

Feast your eyes on just a handful of her cursive fonts starting with “Funkydori”.

“Funkydori” was selected as one of the Most Popular fonts of 2012 on Myfonts.com.

I love the overall weight of it and the thick swashes that add plenty of “funk”.  It’s cool without trying to be.

And Samantha Script feels like a classic script with a touch of whimsy.

I just can’t get enough of her work.  And there’s so much more to see!

Check out all of her fonts here.

Because of Laura’s encouragement, I felt confident enough to begin the process of creating my own fonts.

I have two so far, Belluccia and Dom Loves Mary and am working on my next one. I LOVE designing my very own alphabets and hope to release several more this year.

I owe her a debt of gratitude for inspiring me to keep moving forward on this exciting journey.

She’s who I wanna be when I grow up:)

Beautiful Calligraphy Fonts by Stephen Rapp


Slapjack font, script font, calligraphy font, cursive font, fancy font, wedding font, hand lettered font, font for invitations, fonts by Stephen Rapp

I’m excited to share this newly released calligraphy font, Slapjack, created by the fabulously talented Stephen Rapp.  I’m a HUGE fan of his work!

Slapjack font, script font, calligraphy font, cursive font, fancy font, wedding font, hand lettered font, font for invitations, fonts by Stephen Rapp

Slapstick has a very versatile look.  It would look beautiful on an invitation for a wedding or other event.

Or be a perfect fit for a logo or retail packaging. I could definitely see this on a wine label.

Slapjack font, script font, calligraphy font, cursive font, fancy font, wedding font, hand lettered font, font for invitations, fonts by Stephen Rapp

I am in love with that “h” !! And he did an incredible job with the all caps look.  Clear and readable yet stylish.

Here’s a little more about this versatile font.

Slapjack is a unique rendition of a broad-edged calligraphic script ideal for packaging, signage, and titling.  With a glyph count well over 700, Slapjack is a fully-featured pro font.  Using Adobe InDesign which supports Stylistic Sets allows you to instantly convert your text to a version without baseline connectors for a more streamlined look. These can also be selected via the glyph palette.

It’s so cool how you can choose to have a connected or non-connected look. It really changes the feel.

I had the pleasure of meeting Stephen in person and found him to be extremely humble for such a talented lettering artist as well as a truly kind hearted and gentle man.

I think his work beautifully represents those qualities.

Here’s a few samples of some of his other gorgeous fonts.

Montague Script is another font that has a lot of versatility.

New Cuisine script font, script font, retro font, vintage font,calligraphy font, cursive font, fancy font, wedding font, hand lettered font, font for invitations, fonts by Stephen Rapp

There are too many fab fonts to show here so be sure to check out his full collection on myfonts.com.

Here’s a little bit about Stephen:

Lettering and typography are his passion. He’s studied and practiced lettering and type design for over 2 decades. He was a recipient of the Hermann Zapf Scholarship Award in 1997 and has been a lettering artist and type developer for American Greetings since 2000.

Some of his accolades include:

Published in Letter Arts Review, Scripsit, Bound and Lettered, the recently released “Modern Mark Making” by Quarry books, and Typography 30 by The Type Directors Club.

He has taught classes and workshops on both calligraphy and lettering and has been a faculty member at the International Lettering Arts Conference and Typecon.

In addition to his work with American Greetings, Stephen designs commercially available fonts for P22, Veer, and MyFonts.

I’m delighted to know such a great designer and human being.

Enjoy this Marvelous Monday!

Simple Country Chic Wedding invitation


I love how my cursive font, Belluccia, was used in this simple country chic wedding invitation.

The small hand tag attached to the couple’s photo greets guest with the sweetest saying, “all the best things are wild and free.”

The use of Belluccia in lower case and the white, yellow and kraft papers keep the look modern and country chic.

And don’t we just love the little feather and the twine!

I just adore the boots and old fashion camera illustrations. The boot illustration is from Shannon Parish.

The camera is from iStock.com.

This fab invitation suite was designed by Tara Tallman Sollman (at Firebrand Tribe). Photographs by Jessica Ames.

Thanks Tara! You do Belluccia proud!

Have a Massive Monday!

Table Numbers and Place Cards in Calligraphy fonts


I was creating some samples for a potential client and thought I’d share these Table Numbers and Place Cards in my calligraphy fonts.

In the pic above I used my cursive font, Dom Loves Mary Stylistic version.  The flourish on the capital T was created using a flourish from the Dom Loves Mary Flourishes Two set.

I used Dom Loves Mary text font for  “TABLE 12” on the place card.

And in this pic, I’ve used my Belluccia font and Borders.

Here’s an example using Hand lettering.  Using a Calligraphy font gives you the beautiful look of hand lettering at a fraction of the cost.

That’s why I created them!

With either Belluccia or Dom Loves Mary, you can easily design all of your event signage and print off your own computer.

Have a Wicked Weekend!

How to: Dom Loves Mary font ADD ONS and Flourishes tutorial


I’ve created another tutorial:)

In this “How to” I cover the use of some of the Dom Loves Mary font ADD ON’s  and ORNAMENTAL FLOURISHES to spice up your design.

Before I get to it, I wanted to send a shout out of thanks to Lettering Time blog for featuring my new cursive font, Dom Loves Mary.

It’s always lovely to see a posting about my work.  But to see it on a blog from Spain was really cool!  Muchas Gracias!

Today’s tutorial will feature an invitation design by Nessa Sander of Cardgirl Invitations.

In this fun invitation, she incorporated some of the words from my Dom Loves Mary ADD ON package ( “and”, “RSVP”).

She also added an ornamental flourish from the Dom Loves Mary Stylistic version of the font and used the same version for the words “dress to kill”.

I specifically created the ADD ON’s (66  commonly used words for invitations and stationery products) for use with, not only my calligraphy fonts, but with fonts you already own.

So I was excited to see that Nessa had done just that in this invitation.

Now on with the show and tell.

(I tried to share more details for beginners so feel free to fast forward through those parts:)

Thanks to everyone for the great feedback on the last one.

It’s helping me improve!

Please share your thoughts on this one as well.

Best,

Debi
