Hi! My name is Lindsey Bugbee and I’m the artist and calligrapher behind The Postman’s Knock (TPK). A passion for art and calligraphy prompted me to start TPK in 2012 as a custom calligraphy and design business. I called my business “The Postman’s Knock” because of my love for beautiful snail mail! As TPK matured, I found immense joy in maintaining the blog and helping others to pick up new skills — like calligraphy and watercolor painting. While I take on the occasional commissioned project for fun, I am first and foremost an instructor and a blogger.
TPK has given me the opportunity to design materials for Hollywood weddings, appear in publications like Better Homes & Gardens, Parade, and Flow Magazine, and teach calligraphy workshops across the US. You can also find me in More Creative Lettering and The Calligraphy Ideas Book. My proudest accomplishment, however, is the fabulous content on the TPK site. With over 1 million worksheet downloads and 200K course students, TPK is the best resource on the web to learn pointed pen calligraphy!
I live in Boulder, Colorado, with my husband, Hernán, and my two young children, Remy and Pia . The beautiful design of this website is my husband’s contribution to TPK! Hernán, an aerospace engineer who moonlights as a web developer, is the one who makes sure everything runs smoothly. If there’s something amiss with the TPK site, it’s fixed within seconds thanks to him.
