In an era where paper correspondence is itself a novelty, Bernard Maisner remains the master of the timeless art of calligraphy. He’s no Luddite, though, and understands the utility of online communication for even your most important events—which is why you can use his fine writing to add a beautiful signature to your online invitations, greeting cards, and stationery.
Elegant calligraphy is still the hallmark of romantic wedding stationery, and Bernard Maisner’s works brings the graceful touch of the 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 trace of calligraphy on top of an engagement photo or candid snapshot. If you’d prefer to eschew the photos in favor of Maisner’s own handiwork, you’ll find plenty of save the dates and invitations featuring not only his calligraphy, but elegant hand-penned illustrations, too. Pick out options with modern religious symbols for a traditional ceremony or a design featuring flora and fauna for a destination wedding. Even with a luxuriously 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.
There are more parties and causes for communication than just a wedding, though, and there are designs in Bernard Maisner’s collection to celebrate them with. From formal dinners and clinking champagne glasses to a casual night in the den, Maisner’s invitations add a bit of rarefied air 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”—is delivered with appropriate panache. 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 specially curated and designed backdrops to add your own masterful touch to the delivery (and without needing to do the manual labor of calligraphy, either).
