Manayunk Calligraphy is a one-woman show run by yours truly, Kimberly Shrack. I'm a calligrapher for people who shop at Ikea and buy Apple products for the packaging. I specialize in a modern pointed pen technique that's just perfect for your big day, special event or even in a frame on your wall. Together, we can create something really lovely, personal and "ooo" inspiring.

Named for the artsy, intrepid neighborhood where it was born, Manayunk Calligraphy was founded on beautiful Main Street in the Manayunk section of Philadelphia. Today, we're located in historic Irvington in Indianapolis. If you're lucky enough to find yourself in the neighborhood, say hello. I'm the redhead perpetually covered in ink stains.

In the meantime, you can find me and my latest work on Instagram - just follow @MNYKcalligraphy.
