Interested in calligraphy, but not sure how the whole process works? Below you’ll find a short summary of the steps I take with each of my sweet calligraphy clients.
My turnaround time varies based on my current project schedule, so planning ahead is always a plus! Once you have a rough estimate of when your materials would be ready for calligraphing, we can get you on my project schedule – and check one more item off of your long wedding planning to-do list!
STEP NO. 1
I want to hear all the details! We’ll chat about your vision for your wedding, as well as calligraphy styles and ink colors to find what best makes your heart go pitter patter.
I’ll put together a quote for you with all of the fun details we’ve talked about, and send to you to review! If you aren’t sure of quantities yet, no worries! We’ll use an estimate for the quote and then we can increase or decrease that later once you have a better sense of your guest list.
To reserve your project on my schedule, I ask for a 50% non-refundable retainer.
STEP NO. 2
Once you’ve booked, it’s time to pop the bubbly – you’re officially a #laurenperrybride!
Next, we’ll work on your address list. I’m here to help with any questions you might have, and to clear up any confusing etiquette rules.
The timeline for your project starts once I receive all materials as well as your finalized address or guest list. If you’re providing the items to be calligraphed – I ask for 20% extra to account for any mistakes, ink spills, or last minute additions.
STEP NO. 3
Here comes the best part – you get to sit back and relax! Pour yourself a glass of wine, put on a mud mask and go kick your feet up on the couch with some New Girl and the Bachelor.
Meanwhile, I’ll calligraph each of your pieces to perfection. Please allow about 2-3 weeks per one hundred envelopes and 1-2 weeks per one hundred place/escort cards, unless we have discussed a different timeline!
STEP NO. 4
Once I’m done calligraphing, my proofreader will check that each one is perfect! I’m a stickler for making sure your pieces are calligraphed with exactly what your list shows.
Your pretty little pieces will be wrapped up safe and sound, and then they’re all yours to drop in your mailbox to your sweet guests or prep for display on your big day!
Have other calligraphy projects in mind? I’ve got you covered, darling! Just focus on your sweetie waiting for you at the end of the aisle and leave the paper to me!
