Each project will look slightly different, however, below you will find how the process generally works. Please don’t hesitate, at any point, to contact me with questions!
1. INQUIRY AND QUOTE
I am honored that you would like to consider me for your project! Let’s chat about all the beautiful details and after we have talked about what you are looking for, I will send you a quote tailored to your project.
2. CONTRACT AND DEPOSIT
Once we have figured out all the project details and pricing, I will send you a contract and invoice for the project’s deposit. For most projects, I require a 50% deposit before the start of the project and to secure the project’s spot in my calendar. The remaining 50% is due once the project is complete, before it is shipped out. Once I have the signed contract and deposit, your projects will go on my calendar (with some cute washi tape to mark off your project!) and we’ll both do a little happy dance!
3. Choose your Style
Head over to the styles page to choose which style of calligraphy best suits your project. I love working with a client to create lettering that is perfect for their project, so if you don’t see what you are looking for there, let me know and I am happy to try to accommodate your needs.
4. SENDING MATERIALS AND START OF PROJECT
Here is where the fun begins! Once I have received any materials needed to complete the project, I will get started on adding the beautiful letters. For envelopes and escort/place cards, I ask for 20% extra of the materials to account for ink splattering and smudging. If a list of information, for example names and addresses for envelopes or names and table numbers for escort cards, is needed, I will email you a google doc with explanations of how to insert your information. The client is responsible for any costs to ship the materials, both to me and back to the client.
5. SNAIL MAIL TIME
And now the best for last! Once I have received your final payment, beautiful snail mail will be on your way!
