Um, I am not sure what kind of calligraphy styles there are, but I hand addressed all of my invitations in a style similar to Edwardian Script.

I kept is simple and believe it or not, one of our envelopes was returned for being illegible! I love the Standard style from Minted.com because it fit our mood and didn’t seem too fancy or old fashioned.  http://perfectbound.blogspot.com/2008/08/our-invitations-envelopes-calligraphy.html

 

Minted is a great source for beautiful and reliable calligrapahy. See all of their styles online at http://www.minted.com/calligraphy. And plan well in advance. Minted delivered my envelopes with out any problems what so ever but not everyone is as reliable. You don’t want to be delayed in getting your invites out because you are waiting to get them back from the calligrapher.

I’ve been a professional calligrapher for 35 years and the most common 2 lettering styles are coopperplate and italic. It is not necessary (and actually impossible) to exactly mimic a computer font since they are carefully lettered by hand.
