Add a lovely artist's touch to your wedding invitations!

A wedding map is a stylish, unique & very personal way to introduce guests to the location of your upcoming I Do's! Whether your wedding is at a faraway exotic locale, or in your own backyard, a hand-lettered map will be a treasured keepsake.

I carefully research your location, then create a highly detailed custom piece, packed with personality and charm. Your map is hand lettered in my calligraphy, and your special locations, venue and landmarks are illustrated with my cute little drawings.

This listing is for a high-resolution digital file of the map. Printing can then be carried out by your stationer or letterpress... or even a local print shop. The printed map can be used as a save-the-date postcard, an insert into invitations, or tucked into welcome bags!

PenPaintInk by Laura Lavender is heirloom quality calligraphy and illustration, with flourish! My vintage style calligraphy is created with a desire to honour the elegance and tradition of hand lettering of yesterday. I intend for my illustrations to be finely crafted. I use only the finest quality pens, paints & inks (and paper!)

Frequently asked questions about PenPaintInk

Thinking of your timing? Here is a suggested time line by wedding experts in regards to addressing and mailing of wedding invitations: Envelopes should be delivered to the calligrapher at least 3 months in advance of wedding. Invitations should be mailed 6 to 8 weeks in advance of wedding.

Also, I always advise clients to have the post office hand cancel your stamps, as the machine can damage the envelopes!

If you are interested in hiring a wedding calligrapher, be sure to contact them well in advance of your dates - at certain times of the year, we are booked months in advance!
For envelope addressing, place cards or seating cards:

Please send name and address information in a word document format, saved as PDF.

"&" OR "AND"?
- Let me know if you prefer "&" or "and."

- Please list names like this for place cards:
Miss Anne Shirley

- Please list names like this for escort cards:
Miss Anne Shirley
Table 1

- Please list addresses in this format for envelope addressing:
Miss Anne Shirley
Green Gables
Cavendish, PE

Please let me know if you have any questions about addressing or invitation etiquette!
For Addressing work: Please provide around 15-20% additional materials as calligraphy is a "human process" that can sometimes have a slip of the pen nib!
(For example, if 100 envelopes are being addressed, please send me around 120. I can keep a few extra after your order is completed if you think you may have changes to your guest list.)
The time I need to complete an order varies greatly depending on the details of the order; however here are some guidelines to give you an idea:

Please allow one week per one hundred envelopes.

Please allow three to five days for your order.

These projects generally require up to two weeks.

Please allow one week.

Please allow at least two weeks.

All hand lettered items require one full day drying time to avoid nasty smudges!
Yes! Please be in touch prior to placing your order if you need your items right away. Depending on my schedule, I am sometimes able to accommodate rush orders.

Rush orders have a 25% rush fee added.
When you order a custom design (such as a map, invitation, crest or menu, etc.) your order includes two changes / alterations /additions to the design. If I have made a spelling mistake (yes, it does happen!) then that fix is not counted as a revision.

Any additional changes / alterations /additions to your design are at a fee of $25 each, and are dependant upon my current schedule.
Here is the process for listings in which you are commissioning a custom design: I create your custom calligraphy design with pen & ink; once the ink is dry, I have the piece scanned at a high resolution. This high resolution file is then sent to you, or the stationer of your choice, for printing. The files are delivered via Hightail, so be sure to supply your email address.
