I look forward to meeting you, in person (if you live locally) or by phone or email, whichever is most convenient for you. I know you’re busy, and I want this to be one part of your event planning that isn’t stressful for you.
For invitation addressing:
You will need to supply a typed address list (in Word format, please), including how you would like the names to appear on the inner envelopes. (For example, if there are family members and you would like something more personal than Mr. and Mrs. John Smith on the inner envelope, like Uncle John and Aunt Meredith.)
Please order an extra 20-25% envelopes to allow for mistakes and late additions to your invitation list. I will hold onto the extra stock until the week of your event, in case you need to send out last minute invitations. After your event, I will mail (or deliver, if you are local) any remaining stock to you.
The same guidelines apply as for envelopes. I will need a typed list of names and 20-25% extra stock.
For calligraphy on menus, invitations, seating charts, order of service/programs, and other custom projects:
First, we will go over ideas for the design. After I submit the first draft to you, you may ask for two design revisions at no charge. When the final draft is ready and you’ve approved it, I will send you the high-res digital files in pdf or jpeg format for you provide to your printer.
For orders of 100 invitations or less, give me about a week. For larger orders, two weeks. I will always attempt a quicker turnaround if it’s possible. For custom projects, the time will vary and depends on the size of the project, but one to two weeks is standard.
A 50% deposit is required at the time you place your order, with the balance to be paid when your order is delivered, or before it is shipped. I accept payments through PayPal and by check.
