Hi! I'm Cara Linehan Esch - owner of Dear Rose Studio. I provide custom calligraphy, hand lettering, and illustration for weddings, events, and other special occasions. From beautiful invitations and envelopes to personalized details on the big day, I help make your celebration as memorable and unique as you are!

I love working with paper and ink, but work just as often with chalk, wood, paint, glass, cloth, stones, shells... you name it. Have a crazy Idea? I love it already. Let's talk more about how I can bring it to life.

Dear Rose Studio also offers day-of coordination for weddings and events. Let me make sure each detail is exactly as you envision it so you can relax and enjoy every minute of your celebration!

Based south of Boston but serving clients worldwide. Available for travel for on-site calligraphy services and destination coordination.

We have had the pleasure of Cara doing a number of projects for us for client events. Not only is her work always stunning but it is always done on time and within the quoted budget. Cara always provides great suggestions as to ways to achieve the look we want for menu cards without having to spend a fortune. She has a wealth of knowledge of etiquette and grammar that gives me great confidence in order on behalf of our clients. Her custom chalkboard signs are gorgeous and always add a unique and personal touch to any receptions. We have also been lucky enough to work with Cara in her role as a Day of Coordinator. She made our job easy as she constantly worked to make sure that every one of the couple's details was attended to. We hope to work with her on many more weddings!
