Calligraphy and Portrait Illustration for Letterpress Stationary

I created this personalized stationary for a client who was giving it to her sister as a Christmas/Wedding gift.

I also created a return address for the envelope.

I handed over the digital file to the very capable hands of letterpress printer, Travis Friedrich of ParkLifePress.com.

He printed in a soft gray on a luxurious 100% cotton paper at 6.25″ by 4.5″ wide.

This was the second project I’ve done with Travis and both were perfection! And his pricing is very reasonable.

I hope the Bowmans were as pleased with the result as the gift giver was!

Beautiful Calligraphy Fonts by Stephen Rapp

I’m excited to share this newly released calligraphy font, Slapjack, created by the fabulously talented Stephen Rapp.  I’m a HUGE fan of his work!

Slapjack font, script font, calligraphy font, cursive font, fancy font, wedding font, hand lettered font, font for invitations, fonts by Stephen Rapp

Slapstick has a very versatile look.  It would look beautiful on an invitation for a wedding or other event.

Or be a perfect fit for a logo or retail packaging. I could definitely see this on a wine label.

Slapjack font, script font, calligraphy font, cursive font, fancy font, wedding font, hand lettered font, font for invitations, fonts by Stephen Rapp

I am in love with that “h” !! And he did an incredible job with the all caps look.

Clear and readable yet stylish.

Here’s a little more about this versatile font.

Slapjack is a unique rendition of a broad-edged calligraphic script ideal for packaging, signage, and titling.  With a glyph count well over 700, Slapjack is a fully-featured pro font.  Using Adobe InDesign which supports Stylistic Sets allows you to instantly convert your text to a version without baseline connectors for a more streamlined look. These can also be selected via the glyph palette.

Slapjack font, script font, calligraphy font, cursive font, fancy font, wedding font, hand lettered font, font for invitations, fonts by Stephen Rapp

It’s so cool how you can choose to have a connected or non-connected look. It really changes the feel.

I had the pleasure of meeting Stephen in person and found him to be extremely humble for such a talented lettering artist as well as a truly kind hearted and gentle man.

I think his work beautifully represents those qualities.

Here’s a few samples of some of his other gorgeous fonts.

Here’s a little bit about Stephen:

Lettering and typography are his passion. He’s studied and practiced lettering and type design for over 2 decades. He was a recipient of the Hermann Zapf Scholarship Award in 1997 and has been a lettering artist and type developer for American Greetings since 2000.

Some of his accolades include:

Published in Letter Arts Review, Scripsit, Bound and Lettered, the recently released “Modern Mark Making” by Quarry books, and Typography 30 by The Type Directors Club.

He has taught classes and workshops on both calligraphy and lettering and has been a faculty member at the International Lettering Arts Conference and Typecon.

In addition to his work with American Greetings, Stephen designs commercially available fonts for P22, Veer, and MyFonts.

I’m delighted to know such a great designer and human being.

Enjoy this Marvelous Monday!
