Meet Elyse

Hey there! I'm Elyse, the gal behind the pens here. Starting out as a part-time calligrapher in 2019, I formed Letter & Lyse out of an appreciation for fine details + a desire to create lovely things out of the written word. A lover of music and writing, I've always been inspired by the power behind words, and the emotions they evoke. Letter & Lyse is modern calligraphy and hand-lettering for life’s most special moments. I aim to create beautiful and unique pieces that are authentic to the people that so graciously choose to work with me.​

Timeless, hand-designed  keepsakes to take you from the altar, to the nursery, & everything in between.
"Elyse is a calligraphy queen! Very highly recommend!!! We found inspo on Pinterest of a vinyl record as a guestbook for our wedding and Elyse made it happen. We received so many compliments on it and it is one of our favorite keepsakes from our special day. Elyse also printed on our card box, which was a terrarium from IKEA and our welcome sign! Elyse will not disappoint!"
