Extras by Alaina // it's all in the extras

Extras by Alaina is a Boston-based calligraphy + design studio, creating the cute for your gifts + greetings.

"I’ve been an artist since I was a just a little gal coloring outside the lines of my pre-school worksheets, and while my media has certainly changed over the years (from painting to video art and so on), I’ve always been in love with making.

While my husband and I were engaged, I set out to learn to calligraphy for our DIY wedding and fell hard for the tradition/skill required in turning letters into art. Fast forward a million-and-a-half hours of calligra-practice and I’m still smitten with every aspect of the designs I have the pleasure of creating. My hope is that these "extras" add a little extra (see what I did there?) pizazz to my clients' events + everydays.”
