Whether you're looking to fill in the blanks on a ketubah, create elegant invitations and place cards, or plaster a bold calligraphed sign the synagogue entrance, Rae can calligraph any text in English or Hebrew in any size you need -- she has nibs up to 4 inches wide for the boldest hand-made signage possible.
Full details can be found on the Calligraphy page (or will be once it's finished, that is).
