{joelle charming: the font}

So, if you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you'll know that I can't keep a secret for long. A few weeks ago, I dropped hints that I was going to be releasing a font of my "fake calligraphy" and I'm so excited to say that...it's finally here!
After quite a few revisions, I have to say that it's almost perfect. I say almost because, well, my handwriting itself isn't perfect, and I wanted to keep that going with my font. I did work with someone to get this created, and she really did such a great job. I'm so happy with how it turned out!
The font actually consists of two separate fonts, "Joelle" and "Joelle Charming." The first has the basic letters, both uppercase and lowercase, without the flourishes. The second, "Joelle Charming" has all the lowercase letters with the flourishes (the letters at the bottom of the image above). You'll want to experiment with these flourishes, and play around with using the second font in conjunction with the first. Both include the uppercase letters, as well as all numbers and punctuation. 

Disclaimer: I tested and am primarily using this font using Photoshop. I can't guarantee how it will turn out in Word, or any other word processing software!

Joelle, this is stunning! I DESPERATELY want to use this to address all my wedding invites ... but the envelopes are a rich aubergine (ie dark) color ... How would I print this out with white ink??? Does it exist - for a household printer, I mean?
