I apologize in advance for threadjacking, but…how did you learn calligraphy? Did you take classes? Teach yourself?

@GreenEyedMoon: Cool! I was wondering if it was worth it to take classes or teach myself (and wondering if people do successfully teach themselves)…it looks like it worked out well for you! Smile

I have to run the envelope through three times before it even begins printing πŸ˜›
