A modern calligraphy studio.

Kristara is a full-service contemporary calligraphy and hand engraving studio based in McKinney, Texas. We’re dedicated to crafting words that are as beautiful as they are meaningful.

We put a lot of thought into our writing. You could even say we’re a letter little obsessed. We’re passionate about all the subtle details that make each character unique.

And we love how a single word can be more powerful than a dozen. That’s why, in an era of digital everything, it’s our aim to put the art and soul back into words—one flourish at a time.
