James H. Fedor
Senior Lettering Artist at Hallmark
Hired on in 2005 after being in the world of publishing, graphic design and his own lettering studio for 30 years. Was an official calligrapher for the 2002 Winter Olympics, lettering the winning medal certificates. Taught lettering design at BYU and SLCC. Elegant scripts are his passion though lettering in general is his bread and butter

“I am sort of an autodidact when it comes to lettering— no formal training, no classes. In 1981, while working for an ad agency, I saw the beautiful hand-drawn scripts of lettering artist Maurice Scanlon. It was as if the clouds parted over my head and a glorious ray of light shined down and whispered, ‘this is what YOU are—a script lettering artist!’ I read his book “Lettering Spencerian Roundhand,” practiced like a man possessed, and haven’t stopped since.”
