My Story

Hello, my name is Melanie! I’m the gal that’s doing the hand lettering for your wedding + event signage needs.  I’m a mama to two boys. And married to my husband since 2017!  I found myself turning this hobby into something bigger after having our first son. I knew I wanted to stay home with him and wanted to be able to do something from home, but didn't know exactly what that would be. But I kept mulling over ideas for almost a year, of what gifts/talents do I have and that I love to do, and landed on creating signage, Jean Calligraphy Co.! (Jean is our last name, if you were wondering.) My style is modern calligraphy -- I LOVE creating signage for your special day! I feel so blessed to be able to share my talents with the wedding industry and all of you! I can’t wait to chat with you!

My Services

Custom hand lettered wedding and event signage, specializing in acrylic – Welcome signs, seating charts, table numbers, place cards, table signs (cards & gifts, guestbook, bar menu, etc.), envelope addressing.


I worked with Melanie on my wedding signage and she also creates custom gifts for all of my clients. Every time, she is so easy to communicate with and provides incredible products! I was so happy with all of the signs for my wedding - she created an incredible seating chart display that I can’t stop thinking about! I highly recommend Melanie to everyone I know, she’ll make your vision come to life and is so great to work with!” -LL

“I loved working with Melanie! We rented the seating chart towers for our wedding and they were a huge hit that looked so modern. Melanie was able to customize them a step further for us—adding a specific color of writing that matched our theme, and even adding a fun spin to a lyric by my favorite artist. Melanie was responsive and so flexible with the timeline of picking up and dropping off the towers that added ease in the chaos of wedding planning. Would definitely recommend Melanie and her creative signage and services!” -RS

Melanie is so easy to work with! I had an idea in mind and she made it come to life with a few emails. It was an out of state wedding and her shipping and timing were perfect. Can’t recommend enough for any event you may have coming up!” - SM

“I’ve absolutely loved all of my custom orders from Melanie! Her products add such a sweet personalization to the occasion, whether it’s name tags for stockings on Christmas morning or a beautiful sign welcoming friends and family to a celebration event. She gets the products made quickly and efficiently and her customer service is top-notch!” - SG
