Do you have a friend that is a calligrapher and/or stationer and is just breaking into the field? Maybe they’ve been pursuing their hobby & passion for a while, and maybe they’ve even made a career out of it! I’ve compiled a gift guide for calligraphers and stationers so that you don’t need to look anywhere else. In this gift guide I share my top gifts for calligraphers & stationers, and all of these are easy to order online (because we all love taking the hassle out of holiday shopping, am I right?).

CANON iP8720 WIRELESS PRINTER

Finding a printer when you’re first starting out as a stationer & calligrapher can be a difficult task. I highly recommend this model because it prints addresses onto envelopes like nobody’s business.

CARL HEAVY DUTY PAPER TRIMMER

This is an item in my studio that gets used all the time! It’s always in reach, as it seems I always need to trim some sort of paper or another. This would be a wonderful addition to any paper studio.

NIKON D3300

Over the years I have found that the ability to shoot my own work is my greatest assets! The majority of the photos in my online portfolio galleries are photos I took with my Nikon camera… I continue to be impressed with the results I get!

This is great for calligraphers just starting out that need help keeping their lines straight! I also love using mine when I’m creating watercolor art based off of line drawings that I’ve done. A great tool for any artist!

WANT TO GO BIG OR GO HOME?

If you’re looking to splurge on a gift, here’s my recommendation! The iPad Pro is becoming more & more relevant in the calligraphy industry, making it easier than ever for calligraphers to create calligraphy, digitize/vectorize it, and place it into an invitation suite design.

iPAD PRO 12.9 INCH

I absolutely love taking my iPad on trips, as well as taking it to coffee shops when I work outside my studio. The iPad pro (with apple pencil) makes it super easy to create sketches and spot-calligraphy for clients on the go, and even in the studio if it’s your preferred method of designing.
