A Quick Note About Me

Hello there! I'm Simone! San Diego-based calligrapher and engraver, and the hands behind The Vintage Nib!

After creating my own wedding invitations I decided i wanted to turn my passion into business, helping other DIY brides do the same for their weddings, or anyone that wants to learn a fun new skill. I have since added engraving to my services so if you have a special event coming up and need something different, please get in touch!

Have you been thinking about writing your own envelopes or place cards? Send me a message I would love to help you get started! (It's easier than you think!)

It’s great to work with Simone

Not only did I love the final product, but working with Simone was effortless. She is very responsive and sends you sneak peeks of your envelopes along the way. Just as I was recommended to Simone for calligraphy, I would definitely recommend her for all your calligraphy needs. Thanks Simone!
