FREQUENTLY asked QUESTIONS
+ What should I consider before ordering envelopes for calligraphy?
See which size envelope would be most appropriate for the type of guest list you have. If you have many long names and addresses, a small envelope may not be suitable. Some papers are not as ink friendly as others, if you are unsure, I'd be happy to test a sample. Extra charges may apply for dark papers, envelopes with a dark lining, or papers that are difficult to write on.
+ How far in advance should I book A La Carte services?
I typically require at least 3-4 weeks notice for projects. For envelope addressing, if you add production time to the goal of mailing your invitations eight weeks prior to your event, you should aim to contact me at least 12 weeks prior to your event.
High wedding season (April-June) books up very quickly so don't hesitate to reach out to me earlier, I accept bookings months in advance!
+ How much time do you need to finish my project?
Project timelines depend entirely on the specific project and my workload. For envelope addressing, an order of 100 envelopes will take about 2 weeks from the receipt of the final guest list. Other projects, such as signs and seating charts, require different time considerations, but I can provide a more specific timeline after you contact me with details of your event or project.
+ Can you do lettering for invitations, logos, or other custom projects?
Yes! Please contact me with as much detail as possible so that we can chat about the vision for your project.
