Testimonials

Hear what previous clients have said about Joanne Insinga & Fine Calligraphy:

Dear Joanne;

As our one year anniversary approaches, our minds turn towards fabulous memories and the wonderful people who helped make the whole event exactly as we dreamed.

When planning our wedding, one of the most important and time consuming decisions was our wedding invitation. After all, it would be the very first impression our guests would have of our union. Looking through numerous albums of invitations, it became clear that we needed to design our own invitation. From the multiple layers of handmade papers, to the wording, to the font style and ink color, we finally composed an invitation that captured and conveyed our hearts and minds.

Then came the task of finding someone to personalize our precious invitations to each of our guests. After speaking with you and seeing the samples of your work, we knew that we had found the artist to complete our invitations.

You were very specific, conscientious and professional. The time frames that you set in advance were always met and your prices were very fair. Most importantly, your artistry was exquisite. Before sending the invitations, we found ourselves just staring at them: individual works of beauty. The compliments from our friends and family were endless. You were flexible and very willing to meet our special requests (ie. the ink color that you custom mixed was a perfect match to the ink on our invitations!). Although you must have had many projects at the time, we always felt that we received your personal attention. The effect that we desired for our invitation was completely realized thanks to your fine quality of work and professionalism.

Joanne, we look forward to working with you again. We give you our highest recommendation!

Sincerely,

Joanne's works is exquisite. My cousin used Joanne 3 years ago for her wedding invitations and I loved it so much, I saved the envelope for my big day!!

All of my friends and family couldn't believe that it was hand done because there were no imperfections, it was perfect.... I definitely recommend Joanne at Fine Calligraphy and I plan on using her again in the future!!

Ms. Insinga's talent as a calligrapher has been proven over and over again in the many projects that I have commissioned. Her work is always graceful with fluid lines and always appropriate in style. She is a very talented artist indeed.

I am writing to recommend Joanne Insinga as the calligrapher we used for my son's Bar Mitzvah invitations. Her calligraphy was so beautiful I have already recommended her to all of our friends. I will definitely use Joanne again for my younger son's party. Not only was her work perfect, but she was able to complete our invitations in record time. She spent time with me going over each and every name so that there were no errors. She also helped me in making decisions about the correct way to word an invitation when I was unsure about a certain phrase. I highly recommend Joanne and will definitely be using her for more work.

Dear Joanne, Maneuvering through all the details of planning a big party can be very stressful if it were not for people like you. Not only are you a talented calligrapher, your prices are fair and you are a pleasure to work with. When I needed to send my invitations a little earlier than planned, you worked late into the night to get them done a week ahead of schedule. And you did it all with a smile!

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You

Sincerely,
Mindy Greenspan
