Thanks for stopping by! I’m Sarah (or, as my sweet husband calls me, Sarahlove).
I'm a designer + homebody from the Detroit area. My life is centered around clean letters, pretty paper, and lasting friendships.
My work is most inspired by you!
When I'm not lettering, I can usually be found thrifting, obsessing over the 1970s, nesting around in my home, workin’ hard at my nannying day job, or cooking up a mean breakfast (my absolute favorite). I’ve got a heart for...
(and pretttty sure that my heart is made up of parmesan cheese).
Sarahlove Calligraphy was born in 2014 — resulting from a combo of artistic genes, a fine art degree, sheer determination, and a desire for entrepreneurship (or, let's be real, becoming my own girlboss). I taught myself lettering after art school and I've been chasing the dream ever since.
“Hands on” is always my primary approach to design. With my background in figure drawing, oil painting, and color study, not only was the transition into the art of calligraphy seamless, I was able to carry over my first love of drawing into a newfound love of lettering and customize it as a gift and service to others. During my studies, I loved getting my hands dirty from the ink and chalk, and thrived on the long hours and the sore hands as I painted - I like to get real involved in the process, and I always get up-close + personal with my work, so forgive me if I tend to get overly excited about your project! So much love and care goes into your custom result.
I live for the moment of the final reveal - whether it be a small print, wedding paper goods, or a 6’ tall mirror - I realize just how much I love what I do. Nothing makes me happier than developing a relationship with clients and using my craft to bring them joy. It’s kind of a win-win situation for everyone involved - a love fest, if you will. :)
In addition to personalized lettering goods for weddings + events, I also partner with local businesses to offer introductory level Modern Calligraphy Workshops (so. much. fun.), dreamy custom lifestyle lettering (including prints/calligraphy for the home) and custom gifts for every celebration.
Whatever your heart desires, I will do my best make it happen!
I would love nothing more than to help make your vision and dreams of your wedding, event, or custom treasure a reality. Contact me with your story, a desire for collaboration, or just drop by to say hi! I love making new friends.
