Calligraphy embraces many art forms with beautiful lettering. Although weddings and events encompass much of my work, I offer custom services for anything handwritten. My work is all done by hand and I strive for perfection in my artistic ability to produce a piece of art no matter how large or small a project. Please visit my Gallery page to see all things hand lettered and Contact Me for a quote.
Wedding Calligraphy Services Congratulations! And so the adventure begins....
Step #1 Wedding Invitation Your wedding invitation sets the stage for your wedding. Elegant, sophisticated, romantic, rustic, boho, modern luxury - whatever your vision, calligraphy will enhance your theme. If you would like an invitation custom designed and beautifully hand lettered, or if you would like hand lettered calligraphy titles for the Bride and Groom and venues ( drop in calligraphy), please Contact Me for a quote.
Step #2 Wedding Envelopes Your wedding envelopes are your guests' first impression of your special day! If you are considering having these addressed in hand lettered calligraphy, be sure to order at least 15-20% more envelopes. I recommend and offer to match the calligraphy on the envelope with your wedding invitation and I can match the ink on your invitation as well. Please visit my Font Page and choose a style. If you don't see your wedding font I can create it for you at no additional charge. An order of 100 envelopes will take me a week to complete. Pricing for calligraphy will range from $3.00 to $4.75 for a single envelope. Contact Me to schedule your spot on my calendar for at least 3 months before your wedding.
Step #3 The Guest List Keep. It. Simple. The list should have the name(s), the addresses and the zipcodes with each guest numbered. Make sure the addresses are complete by filling out Avenue, Street, Road, etc. Only couples engaged or married are joined by "and" (Mr. John Smith and Mrs. Mary Cunningham); otherwise list the names one under the other. Contact Me if you need clarification on etiquette addressing. I am always happy to help!
Step #4 Set an Appointment and Drop off your Paper Goods I live in Wilmette and I would love to meet you! At this appointment I review your guest list, confirm your wedding font and ink choice, and answer any questions or concerns you may have. You will be leaving your wedding invitations in good hands ( literally!) and will come back to beautiful hand lettered calligraphy. It's that easy! Contact Me to set an appointment.
Step #5 Wedding Signage The beauty is in the details and hand lettered calligraphy makes it up close and personal for wedding signage. A quote on a mirror, a bar menu, a chalkboard welcome sign, a guest book - what's your vision? Let's work together and make it beautiful. Please Contact Me for quotes and allow 1-2 weeks for your project.
Step #6 Placecards The wedding placecards invite your guests to the celebration at the reception. Although small, these placecards are an important piece of the wedding day and the hand written calligraphy continues the theme set by your invitation. Placecards are $1.25 each. Please Contact Me to book your spot on my calendar for 2 weeks before the big day.
