Who is Lasting Expressions Calligraphy?

My name is Amber and I have been learning calligraphy for over the last 15 years. I say learning because I am constantly trying to learn new techniques and styles. For me there is nothing like seeing the ink flow from the nib of my pen and watch something beautiful being created. Calligraphy has turned into a passion of mine, and I would love to share it with you.


Why Calligraphy for my Wedding Invitations?

Hand-written calligraphy envelopes make an impression from the moment they are pulled from the mail box. Your wedding is an expression of who you are, calligraphy can be used as another extension of that. How you want your special day is up to you. Are you unique? Offbeat? Formal? Classy? Gothic? I can help create that for you. It is also one less thing for you to worry about and stress over!


What do I specialize in?

I primarily perform the services of addressing your wedding invitation envelopes. I also create escort cards, place cards, table cards, invitations, and other custom pieces upon request. This can include scrolls, poetry, verses to songs, and wedding vows. If I do not have something listed that you are interested in, please convo me or message me at lecalligraphy (at) gmail.com. I will be happy to work with you.

Additional policies and FAQs
How long does it take to address my envelopes?
- Approximately 3-4 weeks depending on the size of the order.

When should I send my invitations out?
- Ideally you want to send your invitations out 4-6 weeks before your event. You will want to up this to 6-8 weeks if you have a very large event or it is a destination wedding. This will give your guests time to make all the necessary travel arrangements.

What do I need from you?
1) The stationery – Please send at least a 10-15% overage of envelopes in case you forget someone or I make a mistake (I am only human after all!).
2) Mailing List – Please send me your addresses in the recommended format below in a word file (.doc). Please make sure all addresses are current and that all names (people, streets, cities) are spelled correctly. I will address your envelopes exactly as they are given to me.
3) And, of course, money.

How do you place an order?
Simply email/convo me with what services you are interested in. Or you can purchase the style you are interested in. I will then get in touch with you about what you need. When you message me please include the following information:

-Estimated number of invitations to be sent out
- Wedding date
- Date you are sending your materials
- Date you need them returned
- Font style that you would like
- Ink color

After that I will make a reserve listing for you with the reserve amount. Once you have paid the reserve amount you have booked my calligraphy services. You will want to take care of this as soon as possible so you are guaranteed in my schedule!

Once I have your envelopes in hand from the mail man, all you have to do is sit back and wait. Turn around time is 3-4 weeks (depending on the size of your order).
