About us

Place cards written in copperplate calligraphy

Gower Calligraphy was founded in 2009, since when we have been creating all kinds of beautiful, handmade calligraphy and lettering. Wedding invitations, family trees, certificates, poems and quotes are some of the things we have been asked to do, for private clients and companies including Welsh Water, The Royal Mint, Emma Bridgewater, Vauxhall and Benefit Cosmetics.

We are located in Swansea, South-West Wales, but work with clients across the UK and beyond. Please get in touch to see how we can help.


Alun Briggs, who runs Gower Calligraphy, studied at Roehampton Institute, London, where he gained a B.A.Hons in Calligraphy and Bookbinding. He has over twenty years of professional experience and is a past Chairman of The Society of Scribes & Illuminators.


If you would like to find out more about lettering arts, the SSI and CLAS have lots of information on their websites.
