I think the hardest part about running a business is staying on top of making listings & samples for the website. I get wrapped up in all the MAKING part that I don’t have time to photograph everything.

I knew I needed to settle down and add some to the Etsy shop and this website so I made a batch to take pictures of.

For these, I did flat and folded cards and just black ink. In the future, I plan to take photos on colored papers and with other inks.

I can’t decide if I like doing pointed pen or brush calligraphy more. I think its whatever I did last that wins the race.

The flat cards are great for placing on top of stacked plates and linens. They allow some great photographs.

And of course, I did a classic Bride & Groom sample.

If you are interested in place cards or name cards like this, check out the listing on Etsy or send me a message. I can do a variety of styles and colors.
