Introduction: Welcome to Flower City Letters! I'm Elaina DeBoard, a calligrapher and engraver based in The Flower City of Rochester, NY (but happy and able to do work remotely for any location). With over six years of experience, training from top calligraphers around the world, and 100+ happy clients, I have the ability and passion to create connection through the written word for you. Calligraphy adds warmth and intimacy to gifts, weddings, and branding events - feelings that can only come from something created by hand with care. From envelope addressing to long-form art pieces like wedding vows, love letters, and family trees, I can enhance your thoughtful words with beautiful, handwritten script. Flower City Letters can personalize almost anything in calligraphy. From engraving on glass and metal, many surfaces can be personalized! Some great gift ideas are engraved wine bottles or glasses, engraved perfume/cologne bottles or an old-school thank you letter in handwritten calligraphy. Contact me, I'd love to help.

Elaina and FCL did a wonderful job from the beginning to the end of the process. It was a poem about the death of my friend’s dog. It was easy to communicate with Elaina and she always responded in a timely manner. Her company provides PayPal as one method of securing payment. This is good on all sides of any project like this. I just googled online calligraphy through the Thumb app and numerous calligraphers and companies responded. The prices to do this project were so varied. Some were very expensive which was way off from Flower City Letters. Elaina was not the most expensive one but also not the cheapest. When I got the project which took a little over a week I was ecstatic! I haven’t gotten to give it to my friend but I sent a screenshot of and she said she would treasure it forever! If you have FCL do a project for you, you will not be disappointed!!

It was everything I could have imagined. The soft beautiful lettering and elegance of each word will stop everyone that enters our home dead in there track to gaze at such extraordinary art work. Elaina, You are a true artist in every way. I want to thank you for making the words that I will speak on my wedding day and moment that will be captured forever. This is more than a wedding video, this will be a beautiful display of art for everyone to enjoy. And I’m sure there will be plenty of tears as it is read by many that see it. Each word, each letter has it own unique characteristics, and I am very impressed with the calligraphy. Astonishing! I highly recommend Elaina for you next calligraphy project big or small. I do believe I had over 300+ word and she will guide you to paper choices, ink color, or what will simply work best for you occasion. If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Again thank you Elaina for an everlasting memory that will be a focal point in our home. One I’m sure will be talked about for years to come.

Details: Printwork e.g., for a poem or phrase • Personal/Individual • Wedding • 101-1000 • $$$$ (high-end) • At the pro’s location

Truly lovely work. I haven’t seen such penmanship since elementary school when we all tried to write the same. Quick responses and fast turnaround. Couldn’t ask for more. Reasonable pricing, as well. Will gladly use again. Thanks so much.
