about us


I began practicing calligraphy at the age of nine when a calligrapher visited my fourth-grade class.  

More than 20 years later, the hobby I enjoyed growing up has become a profession thanks to over five years’ experience working at Rugg Road, a premium paper store on Beacon Hill with a wonderful staff. 

Working extensively with premier invitation vendors, talented local artists, and exceptionally knowledgeable retail colleagues, I have helped brides with an infinite variety of tastes and budgets realize their invitation dreams.  [non-bride content?]


My twin sister, Chesley, adds depth to the services we can offer.  Chesley’s extensive marketing and design experience in both non-profit and corporate retail venues is second-to-none.  She’s a gifted customer service professional and, best of all, an exceptional artist.

Our consultation experience with a variety of wedding and design clients has led Chesley, Elisia and me to a renewed interest in the creation of distinctive and affordable wedding stationery, and fused our enthusiasm for the creative process with our ongoing calligraphy and design work.


Elisia is cool, too. But I have to write more text about her. 


One of our primary consultants is Stephanie Rossi of Spazio Rosso.

Astrid Elizabeth Caligraphy & Design offers a variety of services as a response to requests for both traditional hand-lettering–at a reasonable priceand unique calligraphy styles, motifs, illustrations, and designs that complement modern stationery trends. Our love of fine stationery, passion for creative design, eye for color and content, and devotion to client satisfaction make ordering our calligraphy, design, and illustration services a delightfully gratifying experience.

How may we help you?
