This is a big decision. How do I know I will get exactly what I want?
If you are on the fence about what design you like best or whether your preferred ink color is the right choice, I have plenty of examples of past orders that I can show you. You can also inquire about a sample for many of the items I offer.
I've picked out my favorite design. Now what?
Great! Once you have your calligraphy style picked out, head on over to our Contact page to fill out the custom order form to get in contact with me.
Why do I have to send extra envelopes? Aren't you a professional?
I ask that you send 20% more envelopes to account for human error and spillage, which is unavoidable with handwritten calligraphy. It is better to send these extras initially and receive any unused envelopes back.
So...I waited until the last minute and now I need this order like yesterday. How fast can you have my ordercompleted?
I am able to handle rush orders, but shoot me a message to confirm my availability.
All of my RSVPs haven't come in yet. What if I have to make last minute changes? My aunt just told me she wants to bring her new boyfriend and needs a plus one! What if I have to change table numbers?
First thing- take a deep breath. This is a fairly common concern. If any additions or changes come up after you have submitted your order, please send me an email with a list of changes to be made.
Please note that any changes made after 48 hours might be subject to a change fee depending on the specific order.
We changed our mind-- we're eloping! What is your return policy?
Unfortunately, since these items are all customized, no returns are accepted.
I am a little fickle. What if I change my mind?
If any additions or changes come up after you have submitted your order, please send me an email with any changes you with to make within 48 hours. Typically these changes can be accommodated quickly without affecting turnaround time.
I want the ink to match my invitations. Can you do that?
Absolutely! I have found that letting me know a pantone color that comes closest to your invitation works best. I can then match ink colors. Please note that the ink color will not be exact but comes pretty close!
How did you learn how to do this?
I'm a natural talent! No, it was actually a lot (a lot!) of hours of practice and playing around with different styles I liked. There were many hours of Pinterest cruising for inspiration and many ink bottles spilled while I taught myself. I also attended a few calligraphy wohrkshops hosted by talented calligraphers to gain some great tips and tricks. You can learn more from some of my favorites:
This is a big commitment. Why is it so pricey?
The cost of the pieces are a combination of the quality of materials being used and the time it takes to complete a project. However, custom doesn’t always have to mean pricey. If there is a style or inspiration image you are hoping to incorporate for your event, there are usually similar options that might work best for your budget. Don’t be afraid to ask!
