— Lauren, client

"I had asked someone else to hand-letter my life verse for my office, and it just wasn't working out. 

Then I commissioned Ginny, and she brought her expertise. I loved it so much, I ordered two more custom pieces for each of my daughters! It's an original keepsake my daughters can take with them into their future.

Others admire and compliment her work, and I eagerly share her business card with them!
I highly recommend Ginny for her attention to detail and unique artist's eye!"

"well worth the reasonable price point!"

SWEET WORDS FROM SWEET CLIENTS

— sally, client

"I needed a very special  life event commemorated, and I had no doubts that I could trust Ginny based on what I'd heard from others and seen online.

Once we started the creative process, she was very open to collaborating, which I so appreciate as a client.
I gave her creative license as the professional, and Ginny made my heirloom better than what I had asked for! And she did it so quickly. What I love about VGD is that every custom piece is unique and handmade, so no two pieces are the same!"

better than I had imagined!"

here's what you get with your custom calligraphy service

Drop me a line and let’s chat! Before we get into the nitty gritty of the proposal, I want to hear your heart for this piece, your big dreams and overall vision. No thumbing through a well-worn design catalogue here. Let’s put together a custom quote that’s uniquely tailored to your needs. Then we can create something that will be the perfect fit for your space and budget.

Your designs are complete and your custom artwork will be on its way to you shortly! Production times vary depending on the piece, but you’ll be informed with progress photos every step of the way. 

Now go frame that artwork and proudly accept the compliments from everyone who enters your space. 

I’ll sketch up a draft of your piece, and this is where you get to offer feedback and share what you do and don’t love about it. We’ll go back and forth in collaboration until we design something you adore. Once the final proofs are approved, the payment will be due.

INVESTMENT

This business bloomed during a season of loss and suffering in my own life. During this time, I began to recognize the true value of specially-made handwritten words. 

My father was diagnosed with cancer and he asked me to write out some Bible verses for him during hospitalization. The act of writing out scripture for him became a significant source of peace in my life. Those note cards are now precious to my family and I, and they will remain a tangible part of our family heritage forever.

Let me create something for you that’ll continue to be passed down. 

And just who am I?

sweet words from sweet clients

-beth, bride

"We will hang these vows in our home for

the next 50 years"

"Growing up, my parents had a reminder of their marital commitment framed in our home, and I wanted a bespoke heirloom from my own upcoming wedding. 

I adore our vows! They are classic and timeless. Ginny captured our wedding greenery in watercolor and paired it perfectly with a modern take on classic calligraphy. 

You can trust Ginny. And you'll LOVE your results! Her excitement for ​her clients and projects made it so fun to share in something beautiful together."

what now?

My mom gave me a little piece of advice during my wedding planning: only a few things will last after your wedding; those are the priorities worth budgeting for. 

After the music fades, the flowers wilt, the cake is eaten and the guests are gone, what’s left? Your photos, the dress hanging in your mother’s closet, and your paper details. 

Those are the pieces you will cherish forever. The tangible memories that will last and that someday your granddaughter might even ask to display at her wedding.
