Meet Jackie

Owner of Atlantic Calligraphy | Boston, MA

I have been in the Boston calligraphy business since 2016. I started in weddings; creating countless place cards, mirror seating charts, invitations and addressing envelopes.

With a BFA in Graphic Design, I have always had a passion for making things look beautiful. After doing some live  event work for L’Oréal, painting perfume bottles at Nordstrom and Macy’s, I found a passion I really enjoyed.

 Being able to see an instant reaction from customers is my favorite part of live events. I have taken courses in engraving with industry leaders and it is now my favorite way to letter at events and in my at home studio. My favorite items to engrave include champagne glasses and wine bottles as they are such special gifts that the recipient can treasure forever. Most recently, I’ve discovered heat foiling! After getting multiple requests and not offering it as a service, I watched some tutorials and purchased the tools I needed. Heat foiling is a great way to personalize leather with calligraphy!

It wasn’t until 2021 that I decided to take my calligraphy business full-time, leaving my career as a project manager in the design industry. My experience as a project manager lends itself to being a business owner in many ways. You can be sure I will make a great partner for your business and events.

I am a complete perfectionist and pride myself on giving everyone I work with a top notch experience. I love getting creative, and am always up for a challenge. Don’t hesitate to reach out with a new idea we can collaborate on!

I live 30 minutes outside of Boston, MA with my husband, Matt, our dog, Lyra and our daughter Althea. I love to travel, spend time outdoors and take long drives all around New England. Follow me on Instagram to stay updated on what I’m working on!
