I was working on a large sculpture of a winged heart for a museum exhibition. I had an incredible idea but needed a calligrapher to realize it. How blessed was I to find Kestrel! Her calligraphy is exquisite and Kestrel has such attention to detail and deep care for her clients. For this project, she calligraphed 500 names of activists killed around the work on the heart and, on the wings, the entire Universal Declaration of Human Rights and Universal Declaration of the Rights of Mother Earth. She did this expertly and on a tight deadline. Kestral is a true craftsperson who works to make things very special and right for her clients. Kestrel is a joy to work with and her work speaks for itself. Feel free to contact me on tracy@paganbaby.com.

I had a large format wine bottle engraved for a special event and it turned out absolutely amazing! The work was stunning and added that extra special touch to our event! Icing on the cake was that Inkmethis was so easy to work with! Would highly recommend Inkmethis to anyone!

Kestrel Montes was truly a pleasure to work with. She responded quickly and professionally, hand engraved hundreds of customized silver tags while being gracious to our guests this past August. I highly recommend her for beautiful work and professionalism !!!

Kestrel created stunning invitations that our guests are still commenting on months later! She helped us hone our rough design idea, explained different production options at different budgets, kept us informed along the way, and delivered a beautiful product! I would recommend working with her 100%.

Kestrel’s work is sublime! She pays incredible attention to detail and is a master at creating some of the most beautiful scripts I’ve seen! She goes the extra mile with all her clients and caters to how they envision their event to be. And, it also helps that she has a great personality and worth ethic to match her work.
