This calligraphy style was recently featured in the "Haute Hostess" event on Boston's New Brahmin style blog! Photos 2 and 3 above feature images from the beautiful event, organized by Lo McShay. Photography by Joe Wallace Photography: http://www.joewallacephotography.com/


This listing is for calligraphed place cards featuring the guest's name in Colette style, as pictured above. Unlike Bennet style's slanted letters, Colette style is defined by its consistent upright lowercase letters, which connect from one word to the next on each line. The first and last letter on each line swoops out to the edge of the card. Table numbers may also be added, as shown in photo 3 above, for a small additional fee (see PRICING below).


$1.00 per card (First and/or last name only)

Table Number (see last photo above): Additional $.25 per card
Decorative detail (see other listings): Additional $.25 per card

**PLEASE NOTE: I do not supply the cards/tags; I only supply the hand lettering!

{ NOTE: I also offer envelope addressing in Colette style: http://www.etsy.com/listing/79327696/calligraphed-envelope-addressing-colette }

Please convo me with the following information:
1. Quantity of cards you would like me to letter (*Note: I request at least 15 extra cards per every 100 to account for any mistakes, last-minute changes, etc.)
2. Ink color (You are not bound to white as in the pictures above! Whatever color you prefer, but please read over my POLICIES --link below-- for important pricing info)
3. Date by which you would like the cards shipped back to you

**PLEASE NOTE: Coated/shimmer envelopes cause ink flow and consistency problems; therefore, I only accept orders containing matte envelopes and papers. My apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

Please see my shop POLICIES for additional information, including details about shipping, refunds, etc.: http://www.etsy.com/shop/LetterBeOnEtsy/policy

{ Please see the PLACE CARDS section of my shop for additional styles: http://www.etsy.com/shop/LetterBeOnEtsy?section_id=10086048 }

Once we have communicated and discussed all details, I will set up a RESERVED listing with the total of your order and I will also send you my address so that you can send the guest list and cards to me.

Thank you so much, and all the best to you for your special day!
