Meet claire

Claire Free is a calligrapher and designer based out of Boise, Idaho—but she’ll be the first to proudly tell you that she’s a born-and-raised West Texan.

Claire loves the entire design process from sketch to final result: whether it’s a custom logo for your business or save the dates and invitations for your wedding. Her process usually includes sketching in pencil, lettering in ink or watercolor, digitizing on the computer, and printing using locally sourced printers and letterpress vendors. Everything that is produced by Inkling Calligraphy is personally created and hand-lettered by Claire.

Her other interests include: spending time with her husband; taking her two fur babies (labradoodle + wheaten) on walks; journaling and drinking hot tea; listening to NPR or audiobooks; playing tennis; listening to bluegrass all day, every day; FaceTiming with her family in Texas; and continuing her never-ending quest for the best BBQ and Mexican food in the Treasure Valley.
