We were put in touch with Janice to draw us a small sketch of the DC War Memorial for our wedding invitations. She went above and beyond what we could have imagined with her design. Janice also really appreciated our feedback for collaboration. She is a true talent and pleasure to work with.

I have only compliments to give! We had a non-traditional COVID wedding, and Janice was super collaborative and creative with our letter/invitation hybrid. Her calligraphy was gorgeous, and she was so friendly and prompt to work with.

Loved working with Janice! She did hand-calligraphed small-batch invitations and envelopes for our mini-mony. She was so helpful in explaining the process, providing us with options, and checking in with us along the way. Interactions were always professional and she was very responsive. Pick-up and drop-off in DC made it easy to give and receive materials. Highly recommend!

What good fortune to find Janice. Her work is exquisite and she has a collaborative, flexible, and open work style that helps a novice like me make decisions about fonts and paper and size with confidence. Janice is very good about helping find budget solutions when necessary without sacrificing style. I am hooked and will be looking for more ways to use her services.

Janice is by far one of the most talented and thoughtful independent artists I have ever worked with. Her attention to detail, and willingness to completely customize a gift for me, was unmatched. Her work is worth every penny, and her professional and diligent communication skills left no room for error, from concept to delivery. I highly recommend!

Janice was such a delight to work with! She went above and beyond to ensure the letter for my boyfriend was beautiful and very tasteful. She was quick to respond and easy to coordinate with.

Janice was such a pleasure to work with! I had proposed a different kind of project for her which involved a generational "Blue" that has been worn and photographed for 4 generations and soon will be adding another on to the frame. I had Janice add our names to the top of each picture along with the year that each of us wore it at the bottom. This is a very special Christmas gift that I am presenting to my mother (77 yrs old) who started this whole thing! LOL! The project turned out so great that I told Janice to keep the ink formula because she would be adding more names! LOL! Can't say enough good things about her! Oh and we both found out that we are Pittsburgh natives!!!

My boyfriend went to Janice with an idea on how to surprise me for Valentine’s Day. He wanted to give me clues on what would happen during the weekend and Janice came up with a little booklet for me! Y’all this is one of those gifts that you treasure forever. The lettering, the hand pressed paper, the watercolors, it’s all absolutely gorgeous!

Janice is amazing at what she does. We used Janice to calligraph our wedding invitation envelopes and they are stunning. She is collaborative, exacting, and fast. She is professional and easy to work with. With all the craziness that planning a wedding entails, it was reassuring to know that Janice had everything under control. I hope to work with her again in the future.

I can't say enough good things about our collaboration. I needed individual titling on special handmade papers for a miniature book I produced. JR not only did a gorgeous job on the actual calligraphy, but she enhanced the project by making excellent suggestions and by completely understanding what I needed. I'm currently looking for another project that we can collaborate on. I would love to work with her again!

I could not be more pleased with my experience commissioning a piece of calligraphy from Handmade Letters for my father. Janice was incredibly thoughtful and attentive in listening and responding to my ideas, and the final piece is beyond beautiful. I am so excited to give it to my dad and know that he will cherish it!

I love to write letters to friends and I wanted to do something special. So when I found this company and saw the designs I wanted to get an envelope. I worked with Janice who has been extremely pleasant to work with and very considerate. It's rare you find great customer service these days and Janice provided great care. I gave my friend the hand written letter with their name on the envelope and they thought it was stunning. I would highly recommend this company and will use it if I have an event in the future!

So happy that I had the pleasure of using Janice at Handmade Letters. She's creative and talented with an ability to work in a wide range of styles and with a great eye for color. Easy to work with and really LOVES what she does. I've seen a lot of other wedding calligraphy, but Janice's work has that extra something special. She addressed our wedding invitations and even coordinated with the shop that ordered them to get everything out on time (before a holiday weekend)! She even used a font subtly reminiscent of waves to match our shoreline theme. She also did our place cards and table cards. Those were special. She made our Beatles-themed tables fun yet elegant and beautiful. She shared my enthusiasm for what we were doing. And was mindful of our wishes while still able to offer helpful recommendations. If you're debating about using a calligrapher I'd say go for it. And I'd definitely urge you to use handmade letters (reasonably priced and totally worth it!). I've had Janice make some cards and illustrations for friends and family members as well. I love sending something personal and handmade for a change. Thanks, Janice!

I really enjoy working with Janice. She is warm and receptive to ideas and feedback---a true professional. She exhibits sharp attention to both details and deadlines, and her beautiful calligraphy and artwork is on par with the best in the city. (I have worked with many established Washington calligraphers and prefer Janice above the rest.) Highly recommend.

Janice's calligraphy added such a special touch to our wedding invitations. We went with a traditional look for the envelopes - black ink on ivory envelope, with a simple script font. The envelopes turned out even better than I was expecting. I couldn't stop staring at them when they arrived. Simply stunning. Beyond her impressive gift, Janice was so easy to work with - professional and personable! We will certainly keep her in mind if ever we have calligraphy needs again, and I would recommend her to anyone in need!

I hired Handmade Letters for several jobs where they have created place cards as well as handwritten thank you notes and custom-designed birthday cards for me. Their work is always beautifully crafted with a touch of elegance. Not only is the staff at Handmade Letters extremely creative, they are also very friendly, professional, and timely with deadlines.

Janice is unbelievably talented! The outer envelopes of my wedding invitations are STUNNING! I could not stop staring at them before mailing the invitations out. She finished my outer wedding envelopes earlier than expected. I found her pricing very reasonable... especially for the skill that she has for writing calligraphy!

My husband and I are first-time parents and are part of a group that all had babies around the same time. They all just tuned one, so I wanted to give the parents a unique gift to mark the milestone. I asked Jan to help me on making cards with the kids' names and birth dates. She did a fabulous job and worked within my timeline! The cards came out better than I could have imagined. Love them! And can't wait to give them to my friends!

Janice was wonderful to work with and every thing came out beautifully. I haven't used a calligraphy service before so I don't really have anything to compare from, but I found the service to be really reasonably priced, as well. She gave me a few great ink options to choose from, even mixing the ink to get the perfect color and she agreed to rush the order at no extra charge and delivered a few days earlier than we had originally discussed in order to meet my deadline. Can't wait until I have a reason to work with her again!

We worked with Janice on our wedding calligraphy and she was a joy to work with. She is a true artist and shows a beautiful hand, especially with flourished copperplate, and is also always working on new fonts and graphic techniques. All of the printers we spoke to spoke highly of her work and she has rightfully won some high profile commissions. On a human level, Janice was friendly, professional and responsive throughout. We would recommend her without hesitation.

Delivers a beautiful (seriously stunning) product and is super easy to work with -- what more could you want? I love Handmade Letters. This was the best decision I made in my wedding planning -- Janice is an amazing artist! Seriously -- her creativity and technique are unmatched. Everyone at our wedding was so impressed with her work (moms especially). Plus, she's a true professional, so was super easy to work with, met all of our deadlines, and delivered above and beyond. I've already asked her to work on some business related projects for me -- can't wait to see what she comes up with!

She was able to take some vague ideas from me and incorporate them to make exactly what I wanted but could never make myself. Very professional and talented.

Handmade Letters is hands down the best calligraphy in DC. Janice is a pleasure to work with, is prompt and professional. Her work is perfect, and when I needed a rush job she produced 60 gorgeous envelopes for my upcoming event. You will not be disappointed!!!! ????????

Why isn't there a 10 STAR option? In all my life, I have not experienced the kind of incredible talent, professionalism and courtesy that I've experienced with Handmade Letters. They received my order LAST MINUTE, although having a booked scheduled, Handmade Letters was kind enough to accept the project and was able to send out my place cards a few days ahead of my event! Each piece was made with exceptional care with much beauty. I received an immaculate ribbon wrapped package with the "works of art." To have such exceptional art work with above and beyond customer service to match is a rarity and was a wonderful surprise I gratefully received.

I had the most wonderful experience working with Janice. Not only is she immensely talented and an absolute artist, but she is also extremely professional and quick to respond over email. I reached out to her for a special project for my father's 60th birthday that was definitely not a regular line of work for her. She dove right in and accepted the challenge, completing an amazing piece of work for our family to treasure. I loved how she sends you drafts of what she is thinking and welcomes your feedback and ideas. She clearly is gifted in many different styles of calligraphy. I look forward to working with her again!

I already knew I'd love Handmade Letters' work even before I commissioned a literary passage for screen printing at my business, and my expectations were still exceeded. Janice's thoughtful aesthetic and her professionalism keep my colleagues and I trying to invent new projects to collaborate on with her.

Even though my commission was significantly different from what she usually does, she took it on with a passion that showed just how much she enjoys her work. The finished piece was magnificent, better than I'd imagined it would be, and I consider it worth every penny I paid for it.

I fully intend to invent projects in order to work with Janice again. She was responsive, thoughtful, and creative through every step of developing the day of materials for my fiancée's and my ceremony. We've commissioned three projects through three different artists in the past six months. All of three artist did excellent work, but Janice's skill, professionalism, and pleasant demeanor--all of which are independently noteworthy--make her the person we'll be reaching out to going forward.

I had such a great experience working with Janice at Handmade Letters. I had a slightly unusual project, and she completely exceeded my expectations. For my aunt's 80th birthday, I wanted to give her a card with a quote from her favorite book, "To Kill A Mockingbird." I gave Janice the quote and a rough idea of the layout of the card. She illustrated a gorgeous card with a scuffed-up Scout holding a birthday cake. My aunt loved it! Janice listened to my rough idea, and developed it into a gorgeous piece of art! I will definitely go back to her the next time I need a special gift.
