How far in advance should we book calligraphy for our wedding?
Play it safe, and touch base with us as soon as you know you’d like our involvement so we can block the appropriate time on our calendar. Below is a general timeline to keep in mind for your wedding stationery:
- It’s customary to mail your Save the Dates 5-10 months prior to the wedding date. Adjust this as necessary if you will have a destination wedding or many out of town guests.
- Etiquette says, 6-8 weeks is best for mailing out your wedding invitations.
- Our turn around time for envelope addressing is roughly one week per 100 envelopes, plus shipping.
- Turn around time for Wedding vows is roughly 1-2 weeks.
- A fully customized wedding suite can take several months to complete depending on complexity and number of drafts.
Where are you located?
I am based in Seattle, Washington and provide calligraphy services to anywhere a postage stamp can reach. I often work with clients on both on the US East Coast and in London, and I am happy to meet via Skype if "in-person" meetings are preferred. If you are local to the Seattle area, I would welcome the opportunity to meet you!
What about Shipping?
Shipping costs will be the client's responsibility. I will send a confirmation as soon as I have received your items (envelopes, place cards, etc). Once calligraphy is complete, I will send an invoice for the remaining balance of your order, including return shipping costs. Full payment is required before your completed order is shipped back to you. I take great care in packaging all items to protect as much as possible against any damage that could occur during shipping. Unless rush shipping is requested, I will use the most economical option for shipping your items back to you and will provide a tracking number.
How do I add someone to my guest list after I've already sent you my list?
If you need to add names or make changes to your address list after sending the original list, please email only the changes, not the entire list again.
Do you partner with corporate events?
Absolutely. I have worked with corporate clients in the past to provide on-site calligraphy and engraving for special events as well as event calligraphy signage. If you would like more information about event calligraphy, please contact me with your event specifics and we can move forward from there.
Are you interested in Styled Shoots?
Certainly. If you are an event designer or photographer interested in having calligraphy stationery products in your next shoot, feel free to contact me. I love the opportunity to partner with others in the industry whenever my schedule allows.
