Custom Projects

The journey of With Love by Z began with custom projects in 2018, holding a special place in my heart. With over 5 years of experience, I specialize in crafting unique heirlooms with calligraphy, engraving, and painting services.

In-studio custom projects enable me to undertake unique endeavors, from personalizing luxury items like fragrance and wine bottles to writing vows and keepsake poems. I've also tackled exclusive projects such as writing on fantasy world certificates and engraving on X-Ray Plate. If you have a unique idea in mind, don't hesitate to reach out. With my engineering background and global calligraphy network, I'm dedicated to turning your vision into reality.

Hand Engraving

Engraving involves etching on a surface permanently. I utilize a micro drill with a brushless motor to hand engrave on materials such as glass, metal, acrylic, or plastic, enabling intricate designs on various products, from luxury fragrance bottles to everyday hydro flasks.

With compact equipment, I provide delicate personalization with live illustration during events or at your store, allowing guests to witness the mesmerizing hand engraving process while engaging in conversation.


Calligraphy is an esteemed art that elevates the beauty of words, transforming a simple paper into an heirloom piece. I specialize in crafting unique calligraphy styles tailored to your requirements, proficient in both traditional dip pen and modern brush pen techniques.

With my diverse range of calligraphy styles, you can provide delicate notes to your clients in traditional romantic calligraphy or personalize your products with a style that reflects your brand, adding that extra brand magic so your clients remember where they got their items from!

Portrait Illustration

Portrait illustration offers a uniquely beautiful and thoughtful keepsake for any event, be it a wedding or a product launch. Wow your guests with quick and fun portraits that capture their essence in a loose illustrative style, adding personality beyond traditional portraits. Guests always enjoy the process, and seeing themselves in such a delightful way leaves a lasting impression. These portraits take about 5 minutes each, making them perfect for events like fashion week, influencer gatherings, or gala dinners.


Painting services offer remarkable versatility, allowing me to paint on a range of surfaces such as glass, acrylic, leather, fabric, and even shoes! You have the freedom to choose designs that match your theme and brand aesthetic. I can create designs tailored to your brand, incorporating its history, ingredients, and inspiration, offering exclusive items to your clients.

Pairing engraving with painting details is a winning combination for any event. Guests can cherish personalized engravings while adding an extra layer of personality with painting details, whether it's their names, a date, or a small message.
