calligraphy & design for events and individuals



everglow handmade is a small creative studio run by rachel larsen in portland, ore. that focuses on calligraphy & design. i believe that every day & every moment is sacred and should be celebrated, whether it's the everyday mundane or the once-in-a-lifetime moments. i design goods that encourage this celebration & make it easy for you to focus on enjoying life to the fullest.


i have been dreaming of paper goods, parties, and pretty things my whole life - whether it was a neighborhood newspaper or a surprise birthday party, i was always been busy making things & planning events. after studying calligraphy in college, i have been doing freelance calligraphy ever since. 


thanks for stopping by! i can't wait to work with you.
