Pictured here are samples of unique wedding certificates I’ve designed together with my clients. I specialize in Quaker wedding certificates, either illustrated or entirely calligraphic. Although the wedding certificate is a Quaker tradition, it has been adopted by many other couples in lieu of a guest book. All certificates are made using archival materials (permanent inks and 100% rag paper). Gold leafing (22K) is also available. Most are designed to be large enough for wedding guests to sign the bottom portion. Generally, the size is 22 X 30 inches. In many of these samples only the top portion is shown.
You select the calligraphic style and motif that you desire. The design can be as simple or as complex as you prefer, and is not limited to the examples pictured here. I send a detailed rough draft for approval before I execute the final piece.
The wedding certificates shown range in cost from $200 (for an undecorated certificate) to $900 (very large and elaborate certificate) depending upon the length of the vows, and the size and complexity of the design. I can work within your budget. Typically, I need at least six weeks to design and paint the certificate, but rush jobs are possible for an extra fee.
