Working with Chavelli was a joy, she worked hard to capture our vision, and gave invaluable design input to help bring it all to life. Chavelli is an extremely talented designer and artist, it was a wonderful experience, and we could not have hoped for more.”

“Had my first wedding anniversary recently and had written a song for my wife. I thought it would be nice to have the lyrics written in calligraphy. Chavelli did an amazing job and my wife loved it! Would recommend Chavelli to anyone.”

- Michael Buckley, New York

“I highly recommend Chavelli for all your wedding or special event calligraphy needs. I had a special wedding project for Chavelli and she executed with ease. Her professionalism while working together on a new project was exactly what I was looking for. Her talent and creativity superseded my expectations. I still have both mirrors with calligraphy and nautical flag illustrations—hung them both in my apartment, as is, after the wedding.”

- Sarah Legenza, New York

“We worked with Chavelli for all of our design and printing needs for our wedding—invitations, programs, welcome notes, event signage, place cards and thank you notes. Chavelli was incredible, from ideation to execution of each individual component. She took the time upfront to understand the tone and aesthetic that we were looking to bring to life at our wedding and interpreted it masterfully in all her creations. For our invitations, we wanted a distinct look that mirrored the location of our wedding and Chavelli created a custom design and paired it with unique paper textures that came together in a beautiful package. Our guests raved about them. Her taste is impeccable and her ideas were unique and truly a reflection of us as a couple. Chavelli is a pleasure to work with—thoughtful, professional, and authentic in her approach to working with you. We planned our wedding in 5 months and she completed everything on the timeline that we needed, and did it with no hiccups. I cannot say enough good things, work with her! Happy to provide a 1:1 recommendation as well.”

- Lauren Majors, New York City


“Chavelli designed my daughter’s birth announcement cards and they were beautiful. It wasn’t just your average birth announcement card, there were little details included that were very special and personal to us. Our family has a love for elephants and Chavelli hand drew miniature elephants to be embossed into the background! Her designs are beyond exquisite and unique, we got so many compliments on the card! I can’t wait to work with her again.”

- Janelle Van Dine, Hong Kong


“Chavelli was a pleasure to work with on our engagement party cocktail menus. She is both a gifted artist and consummate professional. With respect to our project, she took the time to understand our desired aesthetic and then brought it to life in the clean, elegant style that we wanted. She even went a step further and created the physical stands that were used to hold these menus upright. We received numerous compliments from our guests about her customized pieces. If you're in the market for something truly special, look no further!”

- Aileen Shea, New York City


“I worked with Chavelli for two completely custom citations to commend trustees for a long history of service. The final pieces exceeded our expectations (and the trustees when they received them were beyond words—it was very special). The process and experience of working together was incredibly smooth from the first email. Chavelli was able to get a real grasp of the personality of our group (which was quite traditional), and brought her own touch to it as well, in calligraphic style as I knew she would but also historical reference and smart organization of quite lengthy content. I couldn’t recommend her enough!”

- Maggie Putnam, Boston


“Chavelli, you nailed it yet again! Another cute, very impressive baby announcement card. You always seem to know what we want. We absolutely love your work and so do all our recipients! We would highly recommend you to anyone and everyone. Working with you is always a pleasure. We love the uniqueness, creativity and personalized design and always look forward to receiving the final product.”

- Carol Peters, The Netherlands


“Chavelli’s outstanding calligraphy and gorgeous designs pulled together all the stationery and signage for our daughter’s wedding.

Not only is Chavelli creative and artistic, but she is also very knowledgeable regarding the appropriate wording for all your invitation needs—from the tradition to the modern to whatever is “uniquely you”!

I hope to have another event so I can work with Chavelli again!”

- Marissa Steinberg, Westchester, New York


“Chavelli is one of the few designers out there who I would trust with my most important and personal creative needs. She takes great care to understand what I'm about before putting any ink to paper. She has a talent for being able to capture that fuzzy, elusive idea that's in my brain and turn it into something really elegant and beautiful. I was blown away by the wedding newspaper that Chavelli designed for us—it’s a one-of-a-kind piece that our guests continue to talk about!”  

Julie Qiu, New York City


“I couldn’t have imagined a better experience! Everything was perfect—from our save the dates, to the name cards, to the table numbers, to the chalkboards. Everything Chavelli designed was perfect to our taste and style. We received numerous compliments, especially on our invitations. They were absolutely perfect! I loved all of the finished pieces; looking through our wedding pictures, they bring such a feeling of unique design to our wedding that I have never seen at anyone else’s!

Our wedding day would not have been as perfect without Chavelli’s creative touch. Thank you for all that you did to make our day one to remember!”

- Jessica Boston, Pittsburgh


“Chavelli designed the invitations for our upcoming wedding. Her approach was very professional and dealing with Chavelli was a dream. She clearly outlined the entire process, came up with great designs, was extremely punctual with the designs and with making small changes that we requested. Her design work is excellent and she really captured what we wanted to be the feel of our wedding. I would highly recommend Chavelli for any design job.”

- Neil Leonard, San Francisco

- Hannah Testani, Armonk, New York


“We were especially happy working with Chavelli, her calligraphy is gorgeous, people stop and stare with amazement which is exactly what we wanted when we hired her to demonstrate with our pens at the National Stationery Show! Plus she is timely, outgoing and a pleasure to be around.”

- Julia Reed, Sakura of America


“I absolutely love my company’s business cards. I get so many compliments on how thick the card stock is and how the foil and logo came out. The colors are perfect with my bags as she matched them 100%. I’m a very happy customer and I recommend her to anyone who wants a one of a kind card that’s done right the first time!”

- KB, Palm Beach, Florida


“Chavelli is extremely efficient and responsive with all aspects of her work—answering questions, providing feedback and delivering results. She goes above and beyond to provide information to any queries or doubts I had and gave detailed explanations regarding her creative work. Apart from having a very easy, smooth process from conceptualization to completion, Chavelli’s creative work itself is impressive and definitely exceeded my expectations. She takes significant effort to understand the client’s needs and taste, tailors her work to suit that and additionally offers her valuable design insight to supplement that. Collaborating with her on my logo and branding was a dynamic and enjoyable work experience.”
