Learn How to Start Your Own Calligraphy Business

What you will be doing. Calligraphy is the art of writing that goes back many centuries. The script can be simple or elaborate and ornate.

Special pens are used to produce the fluid lines and strokes associated with calligraphy. This writing style can be seen all over in different mediums.

Calligraphers offer their special writing style to wedding services, caterers, boutiques, restaurants, and other businesses that can benefit from the unique style that this writing provides.

Custom made wedding invitations, birthday party invitations, place cards, business cards, and painted signs are some of the ways that calligraphy is used.

How to start. If your skills could use some touching up, take a few classes. Calligraphy takes skill and practice. The better you are, the more in demand your skills will be.

Computer software exists to reproduce the style of a calligrapher’s hand, but there is no substitute for artistic talent. Some projects can be accomplished quicker with software and some can only be done by hand. You will need a good set of calligrapher’s pens and paper for practice and sample writings. Creating a portfolio of writing samples will impress clients when you make a presentation.

Start up costs. Professional calligrapher supplies cost money. Special brushes for sign creating may be expensive as well. If you can spare $500, buy good quality items that will last a long while. Keep in mind that your business will expand. Specific software would be needed to create your own calligraphy instruction kits for novices and art students.

Skills needed. Calligraphers need the artistic touch and a flair for the dramatic. The signs that you create should stand out from the rest. Everyone will want their purchase to be one of a kind.

Customer service skills will keep you in touch with the client’s needs. Go the extra mile to provide high quality and exceptional service. Word will spread about your attention to detail and the business will grow.

Marketing. Trade shows are a positive venue to showcase your work. Have a portfolio of your styles available. If you decided to venture into designing your own kits, this is the place to show them off. Samples of wedding invitations, place cards, signage, menus, party favors (like treasure maps), and other places your work can be displayed should be readily seen at your table.

Community colleges and trade schools can hire you to teach classes in the art of calligraphy. A virtual brochure listing your credentials gives them an “at a glance” look at who you are and what you are about on your website. Use art magazine websites and other artistic forums for Internet advertising.

Partner with other businesses that will benefit from using your services. Wedding planners can offer custom made invitations as part of their packages. Restaurants can hire you to create all of their menus. Their websites may offer a discount on advertising.

Calligraphy is a beautiful form of art. Learning to use it effectively can bring big profits. The possibilities for expansion are unlimited if you are willing to hone your skills and put in the time.
