In today’s digital age, there’s nothing like a touch of handwriting to turn the mundane into something unique and personal. For those who have the means, handwritten calligraphy makes eye candy out of everything, from envelopes to place cards. One special way to employ your calligrapher is to have him/her draw a map for those hard-to-find locations or destination weddings.
Maps can be used as save-the-date cards, included in the invitation suite, or inserted in the welcome baskets at your guests’ hotel.
