My name is Christy Toney and I am a full-time wedding calligrapher living and working in Chicago. I am the founder of Calligraphy by CT (formerly CT-Designs), and have a decades long background in art, with a B.A. from Columbia College (Chicago). I've also received professional training from Chicago's Art Institute, The American Academy of Art and The Palette and Chisel.
My calligraphy training began quite early at Lindblom Technical high school on Chicago’s south side. I also spent 15 years as a print production manager, so my entire career can be characterized in some form as "ink on paper".
I currently teach introductory and advanced calligraphy classes at local Paper Source locations (Southport, Oak Park, Oak Brook and Naperville). Please follow my blog and social media for scheduling information as I love to instruct and connect with other lettering enthusiasts. I'm happy to announce that my personal workshops have launched just this past year. Please visit my hand lettering page as well.
The primary focus at my company has always been you. I've been doing this seriously since 2007 and my main objective at the end of each season is a satisfied clientele. I'd love for you to join that number.
