    Jan was absolutely wonderful! She was so accommodating and patient with us throughout our entire wedding process. Her calligraphy was beautiful on our escort cards and our poem. She is also very personable and was genuinely excited about our wedding. I would recommend her for calligraphy services anytime and look forward to using her again for other special events!

    Jan did a wonderful job working with my mother in law for the rehearsal dinner items for our wedding. The sail she created for our seating chart was spectacular!!! She could not have been more kind, accommodating, patient and helpful. Highly recommend!!!

    Jan was SO easy to work with. Jan did the calligraphy for my son's wedding rehearsal dinner - menu cards, place cards, table names . She was willing to step outside the box and tackle a sail for the escort seating chart! Any questions were responded to within hours! She was timely, creative, flexible, knowledgeable and a good editor for all the details. I would HIGHLY recommend Jan - she is the BEST!!!

    We used Jan for calligraphy on our wedding invitations. I have yet to find a vendor who is as devoted to a client's event. She was more accommodating than I could have imagined. Even though she did not make a single mistake, she very kindly corrected mistakes I had made and did last minute additions in the quick amount of time that I needed. She even learned to match the font on our invitations with very short notice. While willing to do whatever you would request, she also had helpful opinions if you needed them. I would recommend her to anyone looking for event planning, calligraphy, or invitation assistance.

    Only a couple of weeks before the wedding I was scrambling around to find somebody to do calligraphy for our reception menus that were being used as individual menus/place-cards. I didn't think we were going to be able to find someone that late notice but Jan was recommended to us by our wedding coordinator. My mother and I contacted Jan and I felt immediately felt at ease. Jan assured me that she could get the menus done and even suggested a really great idea for a seating chart. I was able to send the menus to her to individualize and the seating information and she took care of all the rest. She was so easy to work with, calming, and professional. When I got the menus back, I was astounded with how great they looked. They were absolutely beautiful. Jan sent the seating chart straight to my florist, who was putting it together. That came out wonderful as well. The menus and seating chart were the perfect details to bring everything together, and everyone said how neat they were. My husband, parents, and I were very very happy with the work Jan did.

    Jan is amazing to work with! Her attention to detail, her responsiveness, her thoughtfulness, timeliness -- I can't say enough!! She saved me money, while giving me great ideas! Helped me with place cards, invitations, gift bags, all of the paper items that go along with a wedding! Can't wait to work with her again! She cleaned up my guest list so beautifully, I am still amazed at the time she took! She was fast and such a pleasure to work with, I miss her and can't wait to work with her again!

    We used Jan’s calligraphy services for invitations and save the dates for our wedding held at the Providence Public Library in Providence, RI. She offered much guidance and patience when answering our questions, particularly in light of my indecisiveness with many details. My emails and phone calls were always answered with the utmost professionalism and insight. We heard such great things from our guests about how they loved the uniqueness of our save the dates and invitations. I would highly recommend Jan!

    Jan provided much appreciated guidance and support, along with her excellent event planning skills, during every stage of planning for my July 2014 wedding. From the invitation selection process and her skillful calligraphy talents, to her unparalleled knowledge of all etiquette formalities, to her creative solutions for event venue and timeline conundrums, Jan was an exemplary professional every step of the way. She listened to me and my fiancé during the entire planning process, and she made sure that our vision for our special day was upheld--the result was a very smooth, well-run event that I confidently left in her capable hands. I wish we could do it all over again! I wholeheartedly recommend her very special talents!

    Thank you for the wonderful review, Cecily! It was a true pleasure working with you and Tom to make your big day happen just the way you envisioned it. I loved the Crane letterpress invitations we designed, whose fern motifs we carried over to your thank-you notes and calligraphed programs, and all of your fabulous ideas for your reception were so much fun to work with! Congratulations to one of my favorite couples (and Honey, the sweetest cocker spaniel ever!)!

    I had not seriously considered hiring a calligrapher for our wedding until my stepmother suggested it. Even then, I was skeptical and couldn't imagine the outcome to be "that good". Jan was "that good" and more. She was incredibly meticulous when addressing our envelopes and double and triple checked her work with me. She was patient when I had to ask my parents friends what their addresses were and even used white pages to ensure the address was correct. Beyond her incredible attention to detail, Jan's work was stunningly gorgeous. I received numerous complements on both the envelopes and place cards. The price for her work was completely reasonable and she was easy and pleasant to work with!

    Jan was a pleasure to work with. She was the best vendor that I worked with during the entire wedding process. I first learned about Jan when she received rave reviews from a local Crane and Company/Papyrus where I ordered my wedding invitations. For my wedding, I was looking for someone to do calligraphy on invitations and place cards. I also wanted custom wedding programs. When I met with Jan, I could tell right away that she was classy, organized, prompt, and experienced. Jan took calligraphy services to a whole other level by confirming guest addresses and editing salutations based on proper etiquette. In addition, her calligraphy is gorgeous. I would recommend Jan with no hesitation and plan to use her services in the future.

    Jan Garver of Janscript did the calligraphy for my son's destination wedding. She added some incredibly beautiful touches to make the event special, from addressing the invitation envelopes in matching sage green ink to hand printing a "thank you" card for the dinner place setting in Italian as well as English. She even hand painted a wooden direction sign for the road. She never made me feel I was asking too much of her -- she assured me she likes unusual challenges. And she is super easy and fun to work with. Communicating with her by email was a breeze and her turnaround time was quick. Janscript will add a classy and personal touch to your special day.

    Jan was INCREDIBLE! Not only was her calligraphy BEAUTIFUL (she did our invitations, table names, and name cards), but she knew so much about the proper etiquette with names, addresses, etc. She was seriously a lifesaver -- we LOVED her and cannot recommend her highly enough.

    Jan of Janscript Elegant Calligraphy & Event Planning did it all, and did it all beyond expectations!
    From helping to plan and coordinate the final details, calligraphy and address etiquette, last minute preparations, running interference, to day-of coordination. You can even throw in grandma wrangling. She did it all, and all without the batting of an eye.
    My words cannot, and will not be able to, do this vendor justice. Please know that if you choose to work with Jan, you will be more than thrilled. You want Jan on your team for your big day and for all those needs leading up to it!

    I feel so lucky that Papyrus recommended Janscript. It was such a pleasure working with Jan. She addressed invitations and place cards for my September wedding. Not only is she kind, patient, and professional, but her calligraphy is stunning! She offers many beautiful styles. I liked so many, I had a hard time choosing which to use so she recommended one that complimented the font on our invitation. It came out wonderful, far exceeding my expectations. She also custom matched the ink for us. Her attention to detail and expertise on all things etiquette were much appreciated. From double checking my guest list addresses to alphabetizing the place cards, Jan's service is by far the best! I would absolutely recommend her and will use her again in the future.

    Most importantly, though, her work was absolutely beautiful! She customized a color to match our invitations that we used throughout the wedding. We received so many comments on how perfect the invitations, escort cards and table signs came out. I can not recommend her highly enough!

    We would absolutely recommend Janscript for all calligraphy services. Jan went above and beyond for our wedding invitations and reception place cards. She went over every detail with great care and offered so many valueable suggestions along the way. Her calligraphy is stunning and creative. Over and over our guests remarked that they had never seen a more beautiful and elegant invitation. She met every deadline easily even when we changed our minds about a few things. She was wonderful to work with. We have recommended her to everyone we know & would never consider using anyone else's calligraphy services. Her calligraphy set the tone for an amazing wedding day.

    Janscripts hand wrote in script font on mirrors for the table names for our wedding. We were in a bind and contacted Jane less than a week before our wedding and she was able to write on 31 mirrors within the time frame we needed. She was extremely reliable and had great prices. She was great to work with and we would recommend her to anyone. Her work was professional and her suggestions were perfect. We can not say enough about her service! The prices were beyond reasonable!

I loved designing your Crane invitations and matching vellum inserts; addressing your envelopes with matching ink; and lettering your escort cards on the perfectly matched stock you found; and Paul and I loved working together to create the exact programs and menus that you wanted. I really enjoy being able to go from start to finish with a wedding, and when the clients are as easy and wonderful to work with as you were, it makes my job a true labor of love.

    Jan provided Indispensable service during a time that should be very stressful for most people. We hired her for calligraphy and she ended up doing so much more than that for us! She helped with last minute errands, and was always available for my panic stricken phone calls no matter what time they may be. I would highly recommend Jan for all your wedding needs- big or small! SHE CAN DO IT ALL!
