Hi Jan! Just a quick note to tell you how much we (and everyone who has gotten our invitation) have been enjoying your beautiful calligraphy. The most frequent comment is that they can't believe someone can do such gorgeous work by hand!! (In fact, I've had to convince... Read More people that you've done it that way!) Anyway, we couldn't be more pleased, and we thank you for accommodating us with the exact style that my daughter wanted. She opened her invitation so carefully, so that she'll be able to frame the envelope, as well as the invitation. :)) You can be sure that, if anyone asks me for a recommendation, I will be giving your name! THANK YOU!!

Jan was recommended to us as the "premier calligrapher" in New England and her work on our wedding stationery most definitely lived up to that reputation. Without exception, our wedding guests, who hailed from all over the world, were in awe for Jan's elegant and sophisticated... Read More Cezanne handwriting. She especially impressed many of our European friends and family with her work! But Jan does not only deliver a stunning final product, also the process of working with her is terrific.

I used Jan Boyd Calligraphy for my wedding invitations and place cards. She did a beautiful job on both. My colors were purple and gray, so Jan made a charcoal gray color, which matched the color of the invitations. She has a variety of calligraphy fonts to choose from. I also... Read More did not like how the “r” was formed in one font so she was able to use the “r” from another font with the main font that I liked. She was very professional and completed the work in a short time frame. She was very quick to respond to any emails and questions I had. I would absolutely recommend using Jan Boyd Calligraphy.
