Hello! I'm glad you found my calligraphy page. I offer lettering and calligraphy services for envelopes, place cards, invitations, and other custom projects.
Email me: firstname.lastname@example.org for a quote, and I will respond within 24 hours. I ask for at least 2-3 weeks for 100+ envelopes, but any quantity is welcome.
Please provide %15 extra envelopes for any potential errors, as well as a typed list of the names and addresses of your recipients exactly as you would like them written.
Once I would recieve your envelopes, I will create an example in the calligraphy style and ink color of your choice from the three styles shown: Fennel Script, Aubergine Script, and Julienne Script.
I would then send the example to you either through the mail, or via email for your approval before completing the rest of your order.
*An additional $50.00 will be charged for orders that need to be completed in a signifcantly shorter period of time.
