Have you ever had to search for a professional calligrapher before? More than likely you have not. We suggest that you start your search by tapping into the power of the world wide web. Do a Google search for “calligraphers in the Memphis area.” You will see a list of candidates via their links. Start clicking on each one and peruse each website. Take a close look at their online portfolio and decide if you like the styles and if you can see any of them on your invitation. When you find any that you really like and want to possibly consider hiring, jot down the names of the candidate. Another potentially great source of candidates is your wedding vendors that you have hired already. Call them up and see if they know any calligraphers that you should contact. And, of course, you just can't beat your family, friends and coworkers. See if anyone you know has ever hired a calligrapher or seen amazing calligraphic work. Get the names and contact information. At this point, you should have a number of candidates to check out. Call each one and tell them you would like to interview them about their calligraphy needs.
