"Thank you for your beautiful Spencerian Calligraphy for our wedding invitations! Your work was absolutely beautiful and each envelope so special, and the copper font color matched with our invitation perfectly. We get emails and calls every day telling us how gorgeous the calligraphy is on their invitation and how the font is so elegant, so unique, and so pretty. The calligraphy really made the invitation so special and set the tone for an elegant affair. Working with you was so easy -- thank you for being so flexible with the tight turnaround and thank you for all your beautiful work. Looking forward to working together for the table cards and all the accessories for the wedding!"

I have recommended her to friends of mine and they have been equally satisfied.? Her professionalism, "on time" return of items ordered, (especially with all the other things that go into planning a wedding!) made it an overall wonderful experience for me and my daughters.? I would highly recommend Rose and her?beautiful calligraphy."

We could not be happier with your work and are thrilled with the result of the Miro Calligraphy style!"

"Thanks for all the work you did on my wedding, your escort envelopes and place cards were simply lovely and added just the right touch of elegance to our evening.
I would also be remiss if I didn't say how much I appreciate your patience during all the planning, it made all the difference to work with someone who was equally as calm and organized as they were talented. Many thanks once again, I look forward to our next event!"
Calli McCaw

"Thank you SO much for doing such an incredible job on our wedding invitations. Our family and friends kept calling to tell us how beautiful the calligraphy was! Even at the post office when I was hand canceling them, people on line kept stopping to compliment the beautiful writing on the envelopes! They really turned out so well and we can’t thank you enough! Not only are you so talented, but you are a true pleasure to work with! Thank you!" Jill Scott

Douglas Rankin

"You did an amazing job for us - our invitations, place cards, and table cards were elegant and perfect.  And the poem that you did for our gift to Sarah's parents was just incredible.  Here's the link -- it hangs prominently in their house today, and is a constant reminder of how skilled you truly are.  Thank you again for everything."
Eric & Sarah Kimmel

"The AD is simply beautiful! It is difficult to get a clear vision when sent through the email but in person, you can see all the wonderful details. As I have said previously, your work is breathtaking and your suggestions for enhancements just makes the piece come to life. Thank you so much, Harriet. I can hardly wait to have reproductions made for marketing and to pass them out to people.....and watch their reaction!"
Dottie Burdine of La Papeterie - San Mateo, California - 9/17/07

Frank Biassi of Medallionretail

"Harriet, Thank you so much for the eloquent invitations. The hand-painted roses were remarkable, and really helped set the tone for our evening wedding. I never expected to receive so many comments on the invitations alone. We even had guests call in their RSVP so they didn't have to give up any part of the invite. Your work is unique and stunning, and it was a pleasure working with you!"
Malorie Maddox - Omaha, Nebraska

"Working with Rose Calligraphy was a wonderful experience. She & her associate William really listened to us and were able to accomodate our many requests and provided helpful advice. The invitation they created for our wedding evoked exactly the right tone. Her firm's calligraphy work is beautiful and she delivered everything within schedule and is a real professional."
Ben C. and Jiwon L.

"I wanted to let you know how thrilled we were with the invitations. You managed to execute my dream wedding invite design as they turned out exactly the way I wanted. You and your staff are such talents, in fact many people at the wedding asked me who had done the exquisite invitations and I gushed about how lucky I was to have found you! Thanx again for your artistry, attention to detail and true professionalism."
Annie Cheney

"The cards are absolutely beautiful! The diagonal design was definitely a good idea, and I just love the monogram with the table numbers written out - you are truly talented. I look forward to the next occasion for calligraphy, and will certainly pass your name and the highest recommendation on to any of my soon-to-be-wed friends!"
Erin & Daniel

"The designs you've done for our large table name cards have surpassed our expectations. The elegance and personal-hand of the calligraphy is going to add so much to our special day. Thank you!"
Elisha Santos

"You should have seen the reception we gave your envelopes last night! Josh and I were so amazed at your work that we stared at the envelopes all evening. Your work was in fact so good, that we would like to commission you to do our place cards. We weren't initially going to do them but your work is so wonderful we want to continue sharing it w/ our guests."
Federica Bisone

"I wanted to thank you for the beautiful job you did on our wedding calligraphy. My husband did not see the need for getting our place cards done in calligraphy, but as soon as he saw them all lined up and looking so lovely at our wedding he immediately told me that he now understands why I wanted it! Our place cards and table cards looked amazing and really added to the ambiance of our wedding day!"

Matthew and I haven't opened ours as we don't want to ruin the envelope!"

Jennie Bingham

"On behalf of Britney Spears & Elizabeth Arden, thank you so much for all that you contributed to the June 10th event! The day would not have been as successful without your hard work & talent.

I truly believe that an invitation sets the tone of the wedding (or any special event for that matter)---and the invitation starts with the envelope. The calligraphy is absolutely beautiful and elegant and the work is exceptionally stunning---but not pretentious! I'm thrilled with everything, THANK YOU for also lightening my workload!"

Noah Rosenblatt of Steve Gold, Inc.

"Thank you, thank you, thank you for the beautiful calligraphy. I just picked up the envelopes for my son's Bar Mitzvah and they are gorgeous - they actually surpassed my expectations, and that's saying a lot. You were such a pleasure to work with as well! I look foward to working with you on the escort cards and know that they will add just the perfect touch of elegance to the occasion. So glad that I found you, and I will most certainly use your services for the next Bar Mitzvah as well!"
Sharon L. - Ridgewood, New Jersey

"I just want to thank you for the great job you did on our invitations. They turned out more beautiful than I ever imagined! I looked all over San Francisco for someone who could do Spencerian calligraphy. When I found you, I was a little hesitant because we couldn't meet in person since you live in New York. You have been such a delight to work with. I have been especially impressed with your level of professionalism. I can hardly believe we coordinated the whole job via e-mail! When I went to pick up my invitations at Papyrus, they asked me if they could keep a copy on file to show other customers as they also loved your work. Don't be surprised if you start getting referrals from San Francisco!"
Patricia Saguier - San Francisco, California

All I can say is WOW!"
Jill Katz

"You have been a joy to work with. I was a little intimidated by the whole task of getting the invitations done since I am completely inexperienced with this sort of stuff, but you made it easy and on top of that you went out of your way to take care of us. Thank you a million times over. You are an angel."
Chad Hodge from Georgia

Alice...event planner

"I just can't get over how beautiful the envelopes are, it's the prettiest calligraphy I have ever seen -- really! When I left your apt.

The calligraphy has all been amazing and you have been great to work with, thank you!"

I will indeed pass your name on to people who need a calligrapher."
Katia Almeida

Greg Lattanzio

"Thank you so much for all of your work on my daughter's wedding and for putting up with our last minute things. The table numbers that you did provided just the most perfect finishing touch.
