There’s nothing like a handwritten card, but when it’s in calligraphy, it’s even more of a keeper. “I just think it’s such a beautiful, personal, artistic manifestation of thoughts and caring and gifts and ideas,” says Liz Roessler, of Lettering by Liz, who teaches the art of calligraphy at her Leather District studio. 118 South St., 617-697-3011
Artist Jamel Saliba credits her printer for creating her beautiful designs, but we know better—it’s her talent. Saliba, whose clients include Chanel and Bloomingdale’s, is the mastermind behind the Boston-based Melsy’s Illustrations, a custom card-making and illustration service.
