The Personal Touch of Calligraphy - Using Your Computer!

Calligraphy Software


    Sagittal Software Company now offers the following calligraphy software products for envelopes, wedding invitations, diplomas, awards, and other documents. Our calligraphy software allows you to use your own computer and almost any printer to make beautiful "handwritten" calligraphy (click on any product name for more information). These products are all based on the new SagittalScripttm technology that draws characters exactly the way you do. Your documents, awards, invitations, envelopes, and personal notes will seem like you did them "ByHand"!

Envelopes ByHand Version 2.0   
Envelopes ByHand
Version 2.0: Our newest product. In response to requests from our users, we have added many new features to our flagship product to make it even easier to print envelopes, cards, labels, and invitations. With simple-to-use formatting that works for any size envelope, card, or paper, Envelopes ByHand gives you the flexibility to print directly on your own stationary. You can also print sheets of labels, and you can now choose center, left, or right-justification. Envelopes ByHand saves your address list so you can use your addresses over and over again for weddings, birthdays, dinner parties, birth announcements, change-of-address, or any other purpose. You have the flexibility to include a return address and personalized graphic image. Envelopes ByHand comes with our 10 standard calligraphy scripts. Version 2.0 includes color ink, an instant preview feature, import from Palm(tm) and Outlook databases, and the ability to manage multiple invitation lists, rsvp's, thank you notes, place cards, table seating, and other essentials for your next event.
