Serving Greater Boston,
New Hampshire & Beyond!
Inked by Elle was started in 2017 after Elle took her first calligraphy class in Boston, MA. At first, it was a way for her to showcase and practice her lettering techniques. Soon after - friends, family and others started to take note and would ask her to do lettering projects for them here and there. Today, Elle is working with clients around the country to add a little ink to their special event or every day. Elle also joined a team of calligraphers called Sip & Script as an instructor in the Fall of 2019. When she is not working or creating, she is most likely living her best Mom life with her son, husband and dog, watching Netflix or Youtube, curling up with a good book, or finding a new recipe to try.
Request & Estimate
Our goal when working with you is to turn your vision into a reality! In order to do so, we will take the time to get to know you and anyone else involved and pinpoint exactly what you want. Please start by filling out the request form with as many details as possible. We typically respond within 2-3 business days. In our response, we will ask for any initial details in order to provide you with what you're looking for and an estimate. Once you confirm that you would like to move ahead with us as your calligrapher, we will send you an invoice and contract to sign. You will provide the signed contract and a 25% non-refundable deposit of the total that will go towards the final cost of your project. From there, we can discuss more details or any further questions via email, phone or Zoom!
Once we have received any materials and information (such as a list of names and addresses for envelopes) needed to complete the project, we will get started on it. we will create all projects with the exact specified information, so please be sure to provide the exact wording and spelling as you would like it on your piece(s).
For custom projects, allow for a maximum of 2 rounds of revisions so that we can capture exactly what you are looking for. We will send you proofs of the piece(s) for your review prior to finalizing.
For envelopes and place/escort cards, we ask for 20% extra of the materials to account for any mistakes or messes we may make along the way.
Delivery & Final Payment
Once you approve the proofs, we will finalize your piece(s) as-is. All final payments are due one week prior to your event or requested date. If you have ordered something to be printed, we will then have your items printed for you and sent out in the mail.
If you are located in the Greater Boston or Southern New Hampshire area, we may be able to coordinate an in-person pickup. Travel fees may apply.
If you have any questions about the process, please email us or submit a request with more information! If your order is needed in 2 weeks or less, a rush fee will apply.
