  • Bella Grafia Calligraphy was a dream to work with!! Janet's calligraphy is unbelievably beautiful, pictures could not do it justice! We had so many coworkers, family, friends (even single guys in their 20s who normally would not even notice something like this) comment on how beautiful her work is. I was on the fence about calligraphy initially, but I'm so glad I spent the money! Your wedding invitations set the overall tone for your wedding, and Janet's penmanship will really set your invitations above the rest. Janet made the process extremely easy from start to finish, and even provided a courier service to pick up and drop off the envelopes at my convenience. She even returned the envelopes to us a few days early, which allowed us to get a head start on assembling and mailing the invitations out (not having to rush is such a blessing). Not only was she incredibly responsive to my emails and questions, she gave me (unprompted) updates to let me know how the process was going, an... Read more

  • I cannot say enough great things about Janet. She was truly a blessing! I was in a crunch and she worked around the clock to get my invitations out on time. She did an incredible job - I received so many emails and texts raving about her work from my wedding guest. If you are looking for a professional, responsive calligrapher who does beautiful work - look no further. Highly recommend!

  • Janet at Bella Grafia Calligraphy is AMAZING. As brides are already stressed out about their big day, she makes things so much less stressful with her responsiveness. My invitations were perfect and looked exactly like the examples she provides on her website. Her turnaround is quick. I would recommend her to any of my friends and family.

  • Working with Janet was an absolute pleasure. From the first moment I wrote to her, her responses were very prompt. She kept me updated on the progress of the job throughout the entire process. And the finished products were breathtaking! She is truly an artist and delivers beautiful calligraphy. Would highly recommend her to anyone looking to add that special touch to their wedding invitations. Janet's calligraphy truly make them memorable - I can't tell you how many of my guests have commented on how stunning the invites were!!!

  • Janet's work is so beautiful!! She was so prompt in getting back to me and had them done on time. In fact the day I was to meet Janet to pic up my envelopes I got a flat tire and was stuck on the side of the road and she came and brought them to me!!! If that's not service then I don't know what is!I am so happy with the work she has done for my save the dates!

  • I just wanted to thank Bella Grafia for the beautiful calligraphy address return stamp that they designed for me. My requests were promptly heard and executed. I will definitely use them in the future, and recommend them to others as they were most kind to work with.

  • Janet from Bella Grafia Calligraphy is amazing! I live in Florida and researched calligraphers all over the country and she is the best!!! I shipped my wedding envelopes to her and they turned it stunning. Her beautiful work on the invitations set the tone for my whole wedding and I couldn't be more pleased. Janet is always very quick to respond, and although it was a tight timeline she turned it around and delivered right on time. I cannot say enough good things or recommend her highly enough, she is fabulous.

  • Janet was an absolute pleasure to work with. She provided her beautiful calligraphy services for our porcelain tiles that we used as escort cards. She loved our creative idea and had no hesitation trying out this unique idea with use. She was very accommodating in regards to when she would meet with use to pick up tiles and she worked with us on our last minute add-ins.

    It was my pleasure and you inspired me with your wonderful idea! Thank you!

  • We used Bella Grafia at the very last second to calligraph a very large seating chart on a mirror for our wedding. We contacted Janet less than two weeks before the wedding and she was extremely accommodating and worked with our very tight timeline on getting our seating chart to us on time. The calligraphy that she did was absolutely beautiful. We had many guests comment on how beautiful the seating chart was and that they had never seen anything like it. We took the mirror to our new home after the wedding and have still not erased the calligraphy because of how beautiful it looks. Janet was very sweet and extremely responsive to emails and calls. I would definitely recommend her for any calligraphy needs.

  • Pros: Responsive. Very quick. You get what you are promised. Cons: Within classic calligraphy, she is good. But you are restricted there. That's it. Don't expect to put in your own feedback in it and that there will be any attempt to meet your expectations. Expect to get a healthy dose of sass or cynicism/condescention if you end up making a request outside of the box, when being turned down. FYI: Ms. Anderson, you need not collect sales tax from out of state customers. You don't have such a mandate. Unless your small business intends to file sales tax returns in all 50 states and numerous nationwide counties, and tax jurisdictions.

    Thank you for your review of 4.3 stars. As this review is anonymous I am unclear on exactly which client this is however, I am compelled to respond. I pride myself in committing to what I believe that I can execute well. In most cases, this ensures that both parties are pleased with the end result. In the event that a client requests work that is outside of my scope/artistic vision, I generally refer to another calligrapher that may better suit those needs. Thank you for your kind words in stating that my work within classic calligraphy is well executed. On the BIO page on my website, I mention that my work is “traditional, bordering on purist”. With that said, I assume that there should not be any surprises that my work & training has been classic. With regard to working outside of the box, I have been fortunate to have very creative clients that have prompted me to create items that I previously had not (ex. calligraphing mirrors, ceramic tile, wood signs, lasercut names, custom postage stamps). I am absolutely elated when clients prompt me to challenge myself outside of the garden variety & those requests are met with elation. These wonderful clients have honestly made me a better artist and I am grateful to them. Sales tax: As Bella Grafia and/or my DBAs are registered in states other than TX, I am responsible for collecting sales tax in those states. If however tax was collected from a client in a state outside of the states that BG or corresponding DBAs is registered, I would be more than happy to refund tax collected and would offer my sincerest apologies. Although I am disappointed & surprised that these concerns were never expressed during our communications, I thank you for your feedback as communication is the only tool that I have to ensure that client desires are met. Thank you again and I wish you well.
