We are delighted to offer our readers and umbrella hire clients a 
'Stay Dry and Jolly, help yourself and Grab a Brolly' 
designed and created by Modern Calligrapher, Laura Elizabeth Partick.

The story behind the collaboration...

When clients hire umbrellas, we often have a chat on the phone or an email natter regarding 'what colour looks best?' {we are quite regularly sent fabric samples!} 'what we would recommend for a certain type of wedding?' and most recently, do the umbrellas come with any signage to have next to the stand of brollies?... and sadly I had to say 'well no but I do have'... and 9 times out of 10, a blackboard or two from my own collection would be carefully packaged and sent to the wedding along with the brollies! This got me thinking and I wanted to offer our clients something better!

In Nov 2015, I was very lucky to find the lovely Laura Elizabeth Patrick on Instagram and work with her on a RMW featured Inspiration Wedding Shoot at our brolly studio. Her calligraphy pieces, suited the shoot beautifully and looked wonderful paired with our umbrellas. 
This sparked my creative side and I asked Laura if she would like to collaborate and provide an elegant, simple calligraphy sign for clients to print off at home and use at their wedding!

We wanted a light hearted message and Laura came up with the phrase 'Stay Dry and Jolly, help yourself and Grab a Brolly' the perfect message for clients to display next to their hired umbrellas!

We hope you like the sign and can use it on your big day! ...please send us a picture if you do!

A few ideas of how to display...

The sign looks great printed onto crisp white paper and framed in a gold or silver frame! It also looks fab, printed onto brown craft paper {I buy mine from paperchase!} and clipped onto a natural coloured clipboard! You can then hang or lean the sign against the umbrella stand, simple!

Would you like some coordinating calligraphy items? 

If you would like to order calligraphy tags {like the ones in the RMW shoot} or matching items please get in touch with Laura directly, she would be delighted to assist.
Laura also teaches calligraphy classes in Glasgow, if you would like to attend and learn this wonderful skill for yourself! I believe her next class is being held in the Spring and is open for booking now!
