As most of you know, that means "please respond" in French.
As a calligrapher, I have written this more times than even I can imagine. Over the years of lettering wedding invitations, designing sometimes four or five sets per day, I was always looking to get a little creative with how I might letter it - not only the language, but also the visual aspect. I rather enjoyed challenging myself to doing a repetitive task differently each time (see blog about bed making!). But this was way more fun and I just spent a bit of time of time to put together some samples.
Actually it only took her about 10 minutes to do that RSVP assortment. Of course, she's been doing this for over three decades!
But now, this acronym has a whole new meaning for us . . . as we invite all of you to respond to our blog posts (and with the occasional added incentive of a piece of original art).
We are so grateful for your comments. How else will we know for sure that you understood what we intended to convey? How else will others believe what we say?
It's wonderful . . . when you réspondez to our s'il vous plaît.
