Martie Hancock

I love creating original calligraphy or hand lettering designs for unique and meaningful gifts, or personal and luxurious stationery elements to add to special celebrations and corporate events. I started to learn modern calligraphy and lettering in 2016, and have been creating bespoke commissions since 2017. We have worked with clients both in the UK and further afield, and delivered digital elements where postage proved a challenge.

Bespoke Gifts

It can be hard to get that gift just right. We all have at least one friend or family member that is such a challenge to buy for. So what do we do? We either buy white elephants that end up as unwanted gifts, or we throw money at the frustration of trying to find the perfect gift. However, have you considered a gift that may have a much more personal or sentimental value to the receiver? The sort of gift that finds a special place on the wall or mantle piece? It doesn’t have to break the bank, but it speaks volumes of the time and effort you have put into it. The kind of gift that makes its recipient teary with either laughter or precious memories. The sort of gift that is worth more than the pennies you have spent on it...

We can help you with that! Just let us know a little bit more about the recipient, and we will do all the hard work for you to create an A5 or A4 size calligraphy or lettering piece that brings relief to you and really connects with the recipient. No more fretting, time wasting or money wasting!

Celebrations and Corporate Events

It can be difficult to nail all those little details of your special event. You will spend countless hours making decisions about the theme, look and feel for your event, be it a special birthday party, corporate event, engagement party, christening, wedding or vow renewals. You may end up spending a penny or two on the whole event and want to ensure that it has a luxurious feel to it without having to break the bank. Did you know that it is really trendy to create some of the design elements to also be gifts or mementos for your guests to take home? Did someone say two for one with a really personal touch and luxurious feel?

We know that your to do list is very long, so we can help out with the design on your save the dates, invitations, envelope addressing, menu design, place cards or escort cards, table numbers and thank you cards. These are all things you can tick off your list in one sweep, giving you the time and space to concentrate on the other elements of your upcoming event. We will work with you to ensure the stationery ties in with all of your other design elements or brand.
