Ellen Weldon Design, LLC a “by appointment only” invitation design and calligraphy studio, is one of New York City’s best kept secrets. Ellen began her career as a calligrapher and illustrator for Cartier and went on to work for Crane's, Mrs. Estée Lauder and the Estée Lauder Company before founding Ellen Weldon Design, LLC. A pioneer of the custom invitation and stationery industry, for over 30 years Ellen has combined calligraphy, monograms and hand drawn illustrations with papers and materials sourced from around the world to create elegant and innovative invitations and event accessories for the most discerning private and corporate clients.
Providing the highest level of service, Ellen and team work closely with each client from the initial design consultation through completion of their project.
