Jan Boyd Calligraphy is a Boston based studio dedicated to the fine art of hand lettering and design. Having been in business since 1980, Jan is experienced in many styles of lettering, hand mixing colors, designing just the look you envision for the lettering of invitations. envelopes, menus, programs, place cards, seating scrolls, signage, etc. Jan Boyd does all the calligraphy herself, supported by the fabulous Ilene who checks all the lists, clears up any questions and proofs the finished work. We've been working together now for 13 years! Jan loves working with each couple to create their unique look. Our website shows over 30 lettering styles - all of which Jan letters often - but she's sometimes asked to create something different to make the lettering carry forth a theme or a "look" that the couple has envisioned - and she relishes the challenge. Any look that's chosen or created can be used for everything from the invitation to the signage at the event. Even after the wedding, keeping in mind that the first anniversary is paper, many of the couples Jan has worked with come back to have their vows or a signature song created in custom calligraphy and design to celebrate their first year together. From the first moment that your guests receive their invitation elegantly lettered with their names they are aware that this event will leave no detail overlooked. We look forward to creating the “little extras” that help make your event memorable.
