Questions

 

How it works

 
 

How do I place my order?

Please contact me to begin. We will discuss all the details of your project including the items you'd like to order, scheduling, delivery, rates, and any special requests you might have.     


What “fonts” can I choose from?

I use ONE style of lettering exclusively on all projects. Please take a look at my samples to see if this style is right for you. 


What color ink can I have?

Any color you want. I mix individual paints to create any color or opacity you can imagine. Contact me to review the colors you have chosen for your invitation and related materials, and I can provide recommendations on ink color. You may also provide a sample of the color you would like to use and I will mix the ink to match. Take a look at the samples page to discover what other clients have done. 


How much time do you need to finish my project?

Naturally, every project is unique with respect to quantities and specifications. Typically, 100 envelopes requires approximately 2 weeks to complete. Contact me to discuss your project and we can establish a specific timeline that will work for your event schedule. Rush projects may incur a small additional fee. 


Can the post office read calligraphy addresses on envelopes?

Yes. It's amazing, but yes, their electronic scanners seem to read just about anything.  


Can you do the lettering for our invitations and other printed materials?

Yes. For this type of project, I will work with you to create a layout. The final approved version will then get scanned into a high resolution format that your printer can use. Contact me for rates and details. 


Do you design logos?

Yes, although this type of project is a little different than wedding and event calligraphy with respect to rates, revisions and final deliverable files. Contact me to discuss your project.


Can I check your references?

I would be happy to put you in touch with previous clients. Contact me for more information or visit my page on Yelp to see client reviews.
 

What forms of payment do you accept?

Major credits cards, checks and Paypal. When payment is due, you will receive an email with secure links to pay online. For some projects, a deposit may be required before the work can begin.
