What I Do
Beautiful handwriting. I personalize life's special moments through beautiful handwriting. I believe in the lost art of handwriting and the emotional response we have to a tangible note. I help clients who want to elevate a special event, product or gift. My calligraphy services help clients set the tone before guests arrive and warm hearts with a keepsake.
Let's discuss your vision. Tell me all about the dates, themes, colors and quantities you have in mind. I will do the heavy-lifting to bring your vision to life.
Teamwork makes the dream work. If you're anything like me, you can take your super power to the next level when you collaborate. You just want someone to tell you what works when it comes to the details.
You're in the right place.
"I found Ashley on Instagram and was immediately taken with her talent. I am so happy with the results that I’m inspired to plan projects for her. Talented, professional, and a joy to work with."
"Think Katie's work is just for women? Think again. I'm a man (obviously), and my business tripled, too!"
I can help you source the paper or use what you've pre-selected. I do the hand-lettering. I can also digitize my work for reproduction.
Personalized gifts are heartfelt, and lettering isn't for paper alone. Think wine bottles, party favors, keepsakes and more.

You like all the romantic details.
Memorable keepsakes are the treat your guests will love. Options are endless, but some of my personal favorites are notebooks, champagne bottles and name plates. Everyone loves to see their name in ink!

You are seeking a clean, refined approach to keepsakes and mementos.
This is one of my favorite services. The concept 'high-tech/high-touch' has never been more relevant than in this digital world, as we crave human interaction. These events are wildly successful - people love to witness the tangible note formed before their eyes. It is unique and oh-so 'Instagramable'. It also works if you need me behind the scenes for a just-in-time place card list.
Example here is from the Emmy Awards Winners Circle.
Try this unique party trick at your next event. Offer on-site calligraphy, where guests can watch their names come to life in real-time from a real human.
You want to balance high-tech to high-touch.
"Everything that Ashley has created for me has been absolutely gorgeous!"
Her lettering is beautiful on each word and the spacing between words and lines is perfect (I find that can be the tough part when having someone hand-letter something). She’s also added a hand-drawn sketch on an item for me and it was the perfect mix of whimsical and real. Beyond the work being so beautiful, Ashley is just a pleasure as a person. She’s excited about the work she does and wants to make your order the best it can be. I can’t wait for another occasion to engage her!
Yes, It Really Works
"Ashley helped design a beautiful first year wedding anniversary gift."
I knew I wanted to use the theme ‘paper’ but had little direction from there. We ended up choosing a shortened version of our wedding vows and a poem. We added them to a gallery wall and the results were fabulous! Great execution and design suggestions, we get compliments on our calligraphy pieces often! I highly recommend choosing Napa Note for any calligraphy projects you have.
"I love how my family album turned out. "
(Ashley) did such an amazing job. Thank you so much!
