Hi! I’m so happy you could visit.

Dazed and Lettered studio about me

Who’s that girl?

Dazed & Lettered is owned by artist and calligrapher, Cristina Germano.

It’s my passion baby. I’ve always had a feverish need to create and an obsession with typography. Calligraphy brings me back to the basics: pen and paper.

I believe that every life event should be celebrated, and calligraphy makes it extra special. My greatest wish is to turn your memories into something that will live forever.

If you want it, I flaunt it.

I love an inspired client with a big imagination, so don’t be shy to tell me about items you may not see listed on my website.

Absolutely LOVE my modern calligraphy wedding vows!

Cristina was so great to work with. She got my items to me quickly and made sure I got exactly what I wanted for my anniversary gift.

I had a piece done for my anniversary.

The final product turned out so pretty and elegant, I’m so pleased with it.

Cristina did such an amazing job on my custom order!!

She was fantastic at communicating with me and was quick to respond to my emails. Before proceeding with the final copy of my order, Cristina made a rough sketch that I was able to see and confirm that it was what I had wanted her to do. Myself and the person I gifted this beautiful work of art to, could not be happier with how it turned out and the amount of time and detail she put into it. Thank you so much!!

It turned out better than I could have imagined!
