Laura Lavender's Story




Laura - not only is so talented in her expertise but she is also a very lovely person. I contacted her to create our wedding’s calligraphy signage and she was onto it right away. She is so prompt, helpful and patient and not to mention how professional she is as a vendor. She listened to our requests and spun it into something totally amazing in real life. I just can’t recommend her enough! Upon receiving the completed commission, I am totally blown away. It’s just so beautiful and I can’t wait to use all her beautiful calligraphy on our wedding.

To summarize Laura as a vendor and as a person: “just beautiful in every possible way...” Thanks so much Laura! You are the best!!!

I asked Laura to create a hand-drawn monogram for an invitation suite I was working on - she created several beautiful mock-ups and the final product was incredible! We used the monogram throughout the entire wedding and everyone loved it! I can’t wait to work with Laura again :o)

Working with Laura Lavender, from beginning to end, has been a grand experience. Laura helped map out my beach rental cabin so guests may arrive safely and happily on Quadra Island. Laura did so with artistic flair, patience and good feedback.

Laura Lavender’s work is not only stunning, but Laura is a complete pleasure to work with, very sweet and perfectly efficient. Her calligraphy blew me away and was the much needed elegant detail for my inspiration shoot.

Laura is a rare - and wonderful - find! I commissioned Laura to create 2 custom calligraphy rubber stamps for my business. Not only were the stamps utterly beautiful, Laura was a joy to work with. Laura communicates well (and often) throughout the process, offers excellent calligraphic services, and has very reasonable pricing for her products and services. I very highly recommend Laura / Laura Lavender Calligraphy and Illustration!

I first saw Laura’s calligraphy on display at an art reception and it immediately captured my imagination. Soon after, I contacted her about designing a cover art piece and some song titles for an electronic music project. Laura re-imagined a photograph I had given her, and created a most inspiring pointillistic water colour piece that is now the central image for my music moniker Lamppost. Thank you!!!
— DJ Lampost
The custom heart-shaped monogram Laura created is fabulous! She worked on it right away, and within 12 hours I had the proofs, and shortly after the high def images. I can’t wait to use it for many special touches in my wedding!
— Kelly Bartok
Even more beautiful than I could have imagined! We’re going to include small prints of our map with our invitations, and we’ll also be displaying the original at the wedding for people to see. I can’t believe how well Laura captured the venue and neighborhood from the other side of the continent! Thank you, Laura!!!

Laura, this stamp is just beautiful. It arrived yesterday and I can’t wait to write lots of letters so I can use it! You were so wonderful to work with, thanks so much.

I was so pleased to follow Laura Lavender on twitter and keep up to date on all of her beautiful projects.I quickly realized that I MUST work with her!

Not only did she exceed my vision for my new logo, she listened every step of the way and completed the project on a very tight timeline. It was so hard to choose only one of her sketches for the logo~ I wanted them all!

We also collaborated on a styled photo shoot, where all I told her was what the text should read and BOOM she nailed it!

If you are looking for a calligraphy artist who intuitively understands your vision and needs and does so in a timely, graceful manner, do yourself a favor and contact Laura Lavender.

Laura! I just have to write you a short note to tell you how much I enjoy working with you - I can hardly wait for the next opportunity! You are an extremely talented artist and an absolute treat to work with. You take every detail/instruction into consideration to ensure you create exactly what I want or for the more open-ended projects, you put your creativity to work and simply exceed my expectations. Your passion for your work is reflected in all of your projects and I just feel so at ease to know my project is in your capable, trustworthy hands.

I am so thrilled to have met you and to know I have an amazing calligrapher (and friend!) to refer to all my clients looking for one! I can’t wait for our most recent stylized engagement photo shoot to be published so I can show off your amazing work!!

Hi Laura. It has been a pleasure to work with you. I find it incredible that you went out of your way to interpret my written communications and take a step beyond what I asked of you to create a stamp that was even more personalized than I had imagined. Thank you for the huge grins that you have caused…. And I look forward to seeing many more smiles when I give this stamp as a gift to my sister. I wish you all the best in your endeavours and look forward to working with you again.

Amazing work. I had a personal poem done and it is Beautiful. It looks so lovely hanging on my walls. Can’t wait for my next item to have done. Love love love. Worth every penny!!

So far, Laura has designed my Save-the-Dates as well as addressing my envelopes, and she has been absolutely FANTASTIC in every way. Her work is even more gorgeous in person, she is very quick to respond to questions, and is very accommodating to special or personalized requests. I will be using her for all the rest of my wedding stationary, and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone I know. Order and you will not be disappointed!!
