Wow!!!!!! This nib is awesome but what I received from Laura is as precious as gold, to me. I won’t ruin it for another lucky person...but I will be back for more purchases. The extraordinary talent in perfect Calligraphy is an art in itself and takes precious time, practice and patience. This shopkeeper is the place to visit for supplies and kindness. Thank you, Laura....be back soon. 🤗🙋🇺🇸💝🌹💗

FAQs

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."


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


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


ENVELOPE ADDRESSING
- Please list addresses in this format for envelope addressing:
Miss Anne Shirley
Green Gables
Cavendish, PE
P9T G7Y


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:

ENVELOPE ADDRESSING:
Please allow one week per one hundred envelopes.


NAME / TABLE CARD ORDERS:
Please allow three to five days for your order.


MAP DESIGNS:
These projects generally require up to two weeks.


INVITATION DESIGNS:
Please allow one week.


LOGO DESIGNS:
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.
I like to use standard North American frame sizes to facilitate framing.

Please send the names and addresses of the locations you would like included on your map. Which elements would you like illustrated? Please send an image or link of those locations, if possible.

We can also have fun with your map design, so feel free to personalize it. What sort of a title would you like? Want to include your favourite restaurant? Best spot to view the sunset? Best late-night dancing? We can make your map funky or formal - it's up to you!
