A couple of months ago we were focusing on envelope writing at The Calligraphy Box – the leading monthly subscription box for those passionate about learning, practicing and improving their calligraphy.
This box was filled with examples and inspiration to create envelopes that are works of art!
Alongside this, we set up the Envelope Exchange – a perfect way for our calligraphy community to connect and share their content with each other around the UK and the world.
We separated those who signed up into groups of three and each person sent two envelopes out into the world. Do you want to see the results? Below I have included just some of the photos from those who took part along with their experiences. Show some love in the comments at the bottom if you like their calligraphy. I think everyone did so well! What do you think?
“Thank you so much for my most wonderful envelope. Almost better than a second breakfast. I was overjoyed to receive it.” – Charlotte
“This STUNNING envelope dropped from the lovely Jemma this week, and I finally plucked up the courage to post mine so hopefully she’ll have hers soon. Thank you so much Jemma, it’s gorgeous!!” – Rachel
“The little notes/gifts included was a very thoughtful bonus. I can’t thank you enough. This is by far one of the best ideas I’ve heard of in a looooong time. Well done to whoever came up with the Envelope Exchange!” – Helen
“Another beautiful envelope & note, this time from Claire Slim – thank so much, it’s so lovely to receive happy mail.” – Nadya
“I can’t thank you enough for my beautiful envelope & card. You have also made my day! These will be kept in my ‘forever box’ (after I have shown everyone)!” – Helen
Well done and a HUGE thank you to everyone who took part in the envelope exchange making it such a big success. Your calligraphy and artwork was beautiful and a lovely gift to those who received them. We will be doing another envelope exchange soon, subscribe today and join The Calligraphy Box community to make sure you don’t miss out on the next envelope exchange.
Thank you to everyone who signed up!
