Kristina of 100 Layer Cake says:
Molly’s uniquely gorgeous calligraphy makes sending and receiving correspondence a special treat for everyone involved. Her modern, whimsical style makes designing a wedding or special event even more extraordinary, and I’m always excited to see what she creates next. In short, she’s an incredible asset to the creative community and anyone who has a chance to work with her is so very lucky!
Ashley in Paris, France says:
Molly Suber Thorpe is a marvel: her work is creative, fun, full of energy, and marked with personal style. Better yet, she’s smart, efficient, and pays dazzling attention to detail, which means a lot when you are commissioning something special through the wires. I gave her the full reigns for our surprise party in Venice, having had a hunch that she would come up with something fabulous. She exceeded expectations in every way possible. I’m already dreaming up my next project for her!
Cheree of Cheree Berry Paper says:
Molly Suber Thorpe has reinvented the art of calligraphy! There is nothing more exciting than receiving an envelope in the mail that was calligraphed by Molly, the whimsical hand behind Plurabelle Calligraphy. Her playful and charming script makes such a statement and her envelopes instantly become treasures (not trash)! Not only is Molly’s work to-die-for but she is wonderful to work with.
Bree from Los Angeles says:
Molly is the only Graphic Designer I’ll ever need. She has incredible style and perfectionistic attention to detail. I’ve worked with her on numerous projects (from blog design to small business branding) and each time she took my tiny kernels of ideas and turned them into amazing final products that far exceeded my expectations. And I know others agree because I get compliments on my website and business cards weekly.
Megan of MaeMae Paperie says:
Working in a service based industry, I always want to give my clients a fantastic experience and final product. That oftentimes depends solely on your vendors. Molly is a vendor, well more than a vendor — an artist — that I can always rely on to be easy to communicate with, incredibly professional, and deliver consistently beautiful work on time. In a world saturated with all sorts of calligraphers, Plurabelle rises to the top with her whimsical lettering and willingess to try new approaches to wow both our clients and their guests.
Kate of Vogue Footwear says:
I have had the great pleasure of working with Molly on several occasions, including lettering for my wedding invitations and a logo for my business. As a graphic designer myself, I come to Molly with a very distinct vision. She not only makes my ideas come to life, but creates something even more beautiful than I could have imagined. Molly’s amazing talent and vision make her a fabulous calligrapher, but she is also a pleasure to work with! Her designs are gorgeous and inspired, always on time and delivered with a sweet and positive attitude. I absolutely recommend Molly’s beautiful calligraphy and am now happy to call her a friend.
Kori from Los Angeles says:
Molly’s artistic eye, attention to detail and impeccable quality of workmanship are evident in her calligraphy products. Molly surpassed all of my highest expectations in the work she did for me. Her unique perspective and use of colors, typography and design technique make her work universally appealing yet totally original. The compliments I’ve received are exhuberant and unending. I have the utmost respect and admiration for her as an artist.
