Welcome, I'm so glad you're here.

Hi, I'm Paulene Cruse. Nice to meet you. 

At Leen Machine Calligraphy, you can usually find me addressing wedding envelopes, working with wedding stationers on spot calligraphy, and sharing my love of calligraphy and small business by mentoring other calligraphers on how to set up their calligraphy business.

Although based in Columbia, South Carolina, I work with couples and calligraphers all over the United States from California, New York to Florida. 

Want to follow along this small business and calligraphy journey of mine?
I live on Instagram and Facebook, come on by anytime, I'd love to meet you.

Let’s work together.

Envelope Calligraphy

Are you a bride, groom, mother of the bride, or mother of the groom needing wedding envelope calligraphy? You know, because you really need to get those invitations out, but you don't have pretty handwriting. Or if you do, you're not sure you can address all 150 invitations? No worries, I've got you covered.

From Calligraphy Hobby to Small Business

You learned calligraphy and you’re hooked. You’ve taken on small calligraphy jobs from friends and family here and there. Are you ready to start your business and make a living doing what you love?
