About This Class

In this class you will learn how to address envelopes with dip pen calligraphy. A basic (beginner level) knowledge of dip pen calligraphy is required, as I will be teaching HOW to address an envelope using a special technique but not how to write in Dip Pen Calligraphy. Whether you are creating envelopes for your own wedding, just for fun or you are a calligrapher who wants to offer this to your clients, this class is a great way to learn how to address envelopes in a balanced and evenly spaced way. 

As a full time calligrapher, this method of addressing envelopes has helped me immensely, and I hope it does the same for you!

One thing you will need to use the technique shown in this video is a laser leveler. Which can be purchased through Amazon here or you can find similar ones at most Home Improvement stores such as Lowes and Home Depot. The Stanley one has been my favorite, but there are lots of different versions on the market. Here is the name of the one I used in this video Stanley STHT77148 Manual Wall Laser.

I also talked about the following supplies, but feel free to use the ones you already have:
