Breathing new life into the time-honored art of calligraphy, Paperfinger, a new hand-drawn design company, brings a personalized, human quality to everything from wedding announcements to logo designs. The truly homegrown business started in founder Bryn Chernoff's living room in October '08 when she decided to stray from her background in computer science to pursue her longtime love of the decidedly analog world of ink and paper.

One of CH's nearest and dearest, Chernoff now works from a Brooklyn studio where she hand-letters everything from cards and invitations to illustrations and personalized logos—basically, any visual design requiring her meticulously-rendered loops and elegant lines. For true romantics, Paperfinger will even transcribe a love letter, lending refined beauty to sentiment that's sure to impress the receiver.

Accomplished in a variety of styles, the young designer works on everything from top-quality Italian stationary to napkins and experiments with mediums like sea shells, fallen leaves and teacups. In addition to hand-written pieces, Paperfinger also creates replicable designs, like high-quality custom stamps and digital files for letterpress or other mass printing options.
