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, teaching pointed pen calligraphy online to absolute beginners, and mentoring calligraphers ready to start their 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.
