Struggling to put pen to paper (legally speaking, of course)?

You have the power of transformation in your fingertips. Oh, don’t deny it, you know it’s true. With the right nib, ink, and paper, you transform ordinary names, addresses, and words into miniature works of art.

It takes talent, hard work, and hours of practice to do what you do.

As a failed-but-wannabecalligrapher myself, I know it isn’t easy. I also know that there’s more to your calligraphy skills than just putting a pen to paper.

With each project, you’re making hundreds of small decisions and assessments. Which script will convey the “feel” your client wants to communicate? What flourishes should you use? Should you use a calligraphy pen or brush? Why are your hands always covered in ink??

You’re not just worried about creating a professional-quality, beautiful product… you want to make your client’s experience with you just as memorable.

That’s where The Contract Shop® comes in.

I create contracts and legal documents that put beauty and grace into the legal aspect of running a business. There’s absolutely no reason that negotiating payments, timelines, contracts, and copyrights should put a hitch in your creative process.

Ready to get legit and to make sure your legal documents are just as elegant as your calligraphy script? No problem.

In the resource guide below, my team has rounded up the most useful blog posts and products from The Contract Shop® website—making it easy for you to quickly address your legal needs so that you can get back to the fun stuff—like trying out that new fountain pen you just ordered!
