The first thing I see people do with an envelope addressed in calligraphy is enjoy the texture of the words. They want to run their fingers over the richness of the ink. It has body to it after it dries, almost like the letters are saying more than their words. Your invitations are the first impression your friends and family get of your event, so start things off in style with envelope calligraphy. I’d love to pen them so you can concentrate your efforts on other details.
Below is a guide to the whole experience.
Envelope Calligraphy Experience
- Consultation We’ll start by discussing the details of your order: the number of envelopes, whether inner envelopes are required, script styles, address alignment and etiquette, rsvp addresses, texture and lining of envelopes, and, everyone’s favorite — ink colors. Book your free consultation here.
- Secure Your Spot Once I have all the details, I’ll invoice you for 50% of the total cost of the arrangement. We’ll arrange a way for you to provide me with the envelopes — including 20% more than the total for testing ink, for extras, and for corrections. Lastly, you get to gather all names and addresses exactly as you’d like them written and send them to me in a spreadsheet.
- Calligraphy I mix any custom ink and review the spreadsheet for any questions I have or discrepancies. Then I get to sit down and pen them. Allow 5 business days per 100 envelopes, and rest assured that I’ll take good care of them while I have them.
- Complete Payment As I near the end of your guest list, I’ll invoice you for the remaining balance. By the time that’s paid in full, I’ll be finished with your order and be able to promptly return it to you.
Now all that’s left is for us to start a conversation.
