How long does it take to complete the project?
Engraving, embossing and monogramming work will take 24 to 48 hours to complete. Sometimes we can do same day.
Most of the ink calligraphy we do is done by hand. As a rule of thumb, please allow 14 days, 3 – 5 business days for your proofs, and 5 – 7 business days for day-of wedding or chalkboard calligraphy.
Is there a rush fee if I need things done before 14 days?
Only for wedding invitations or ink calligraphy. There is a $75.00 rush fee for any orders less than 14 days from the due date for Save the Dates or 30 days before the event.
None for engraving, embossing or monogramming.
Do you require a deposit?
Yes, a 50% deposit is required on all projects to reserve the time for your calligraphy, engraving, embossing or monogramming. The remaining balance will be due upon completion of your project.
Can you add corporate logos and art to your engraving?
Logos and any line art can be sandblasted on any bottle. Call for details, pricing, and the estimated turnaround time.
We do not do logos on leather or wood at this time but we can add artwork and line art.
Do you work with people around the U.S.?
Absolutely! All proofs and final master files are sent via email, and your paper can be mailed to us. Once the calligraphy is completed, everything will be lovingly and carefully packaged and sent via USPS Priority Mail or FedEx.
I’ve never heard of spot calligraphy. What is that?
If you do not want all of the wording for your save-the-dates, invitation, menu, or signage done in calligraphy and instead, prefer to combine the calligraphy with a computer font (i.e. you just want calligraphy in “spots”), then you will receive a master file of the calligraphy for you to incorporate into your own design layout
How many extra envelopes do we need to order?
Please order 25 extra envelopes (each size) per 100 invitations. If there are no extra envelopes ordered, we can’t accept the projects. Calligraphers are human after all and some mistakes are expected.
Submitting your Wedding or Event Guest List
