Cyber Monday: Calligraphy Workshop and Kits


I had an idea to make gift giving a little easier this year for those giving to DIYers and artists at heart: a gift certificate and a calligraphy kit. Calligraphy is the new zhu zhu pet, is it not? Minus the fur, I suppose. Here’s how you can give the gift of lettering this year:

The I Still Love Calligraphy Certificate covers the full amount of 1-30 day calligraphy workshop subscription. It’s perfect for a crafty friend or loved one! Heck, buy one for yourself if you don’t have the time to start lettering this season, purchase the gift certificate option and redeem at any time.

The Calligraphy Kit and Workshop is what I’m most excited about. My idea was to cut the stress of  thoughtful handmade-oriented gift-giving. In the kit you’ll get everything you need to give your loved one the gift of lettering, gift packaging and a hand-lettered personal note included. More specifically, here’s what’s inside:

  • nibs
  • nib holder
  • pencil
  • pencil sharpener
  • acrylic ink
  • tracing and calligraphy paper
  • lettering guides
  • code redeemable for the I Still Love Calligraphy online workshop
  • gift bag
  • string
  • tissue
  • hand-lettered card (personalize your message in the notes to seller at checkout)

All of this would cost over $130 and multiple errands around town. You can purchase the kit for $115 + free standard shipping.

Isn’t that pencil cute? Through tomorrow (11/27/2012), use code: CHRISTMASKIT2012 at checkout for $15 off anything in the shop!

If you have any questions, feel free to check out the FAQs page or ask in the comments below. I hope your holiday season is off to a fantastic start!


When I purchase the kit, can I delay the subscription start date until Dec. 26th? Of course! The kit comes with a unique code for the receiver to use when registering for the I Still Love Calligraphy site. The code can be redeemed anytime and doesn’t expire, but once the code has been redeemed, recipient has 30 days to complete the course.

Where do I send you my shipping information? Paypal automatically gives me shipping information once payment is complete. Be sure to update and confirm those addresses.

Do you ship to Singapore? YES. And anywhere in between, standard shipping is on us. Merry Christmas! If you’re in a rush, be sure to let me know so I can accommodate: melissaATmelissaesplinDOTcom



The shipped kits are all spoken for! Thank you so much for all of your support. You can still give the gift of hand lettering this season with a Gift Subscription. As explained above, you can purchase the gift subscription and it issues you a special code and instructions at check out. It’s perfect for gift giving and purchasing the subscription now when you want to start at a later date.

We’re not planning on selling any more kits this Christmas season, but we will be offering kits in the future (March/April?). You can subscribe to this blog for updates (right sidebar) or to the I Still Love Calligraphy newsletter (the main page).
