The master calligrapher's elegantly lavish lettering has garnered widespread renown for the beauty it adds to traditional social stationery.

In an era where paper correspondence is itself a novelty, Bernard Maisner remains the master of the timeless art of calligraphy. Still, he understands the beauty and practicality of online communication for even your most important events—which is why you can use his fine writing to add a beautiful touch to your online stationery, invitations, and greeting cards.

When many people think of elegant calligraphy, wedding stationery often comes to mind. Bernard Maisner’s work brings the graceful artform to more modern modes of reaching out to your guests. Start with one of his photo save the dates—a way to bring old and new styles together, with a calligraphy on top of an engagement photo or candid snapshot. If you’d prefer to go sans photo in favor of Maisner’s handiwork, you’ll find plenty of save the dates and wedding invitations featuring his calligraphy as well as hand-penned illustrations. Pick out options with modern religious symbols for a traditional ceremony or a design featuring flowers and greenery or birds and animals. Even with a romantic vintage design, you’ll have the benefit of very contemporary tools. Your save the dates can collect guests’ postal addresses for a later paper mailing. Should you choose to keep the entire affair digital, your invitations have smart RSVP tracking and a direct messaging line to your guests’ inboxes.

Not planning a wedding anytime soon? There are more parties and causes for classy communication than just a wedding. From formal dinners and cocktail parties to a surprise birthday bash, Maisner’s invitations add a refined vibe to any event you host. If a party’s not in order but a celebratory word still is, calligraphy is the best way to ensure that your most important sentiments—”Happy birthday,” “Thank you,” “Congratulations,” “I love you”—are delivered with a little something extra. You’ll have plenty of room to customize the message (and the type it’s delivered in) with the online design tool. You can pick out envelope liners and backdrops to add your own creative touch, showing you it’s easier than you think to get elegant custom stationery online (even if you don’t have the skill of calligraphy).
