Thank you for considering The Left Handed Calligrapher for your special occasion!
We think that calligraphy should be one of the less stressful parts of your planning process (and know that the guest list is the worst!).
In anticipation of some of your questions, we have provided some details below.
We love your work, how do we get on the schedule and move forward?
Yay! I am so please you have chosen me. Please contact me with the details of your order and to confirm availability
and receive the necessary contracts and order forms!
We don’t live in the same city as you. Can we still work together?
Absolutely! I work with clients, stationers, designers, and planners across the nation. Most of our communication is via email for record keeping and we ship your carefully packaged items via FedEx or UPS.
Do we need to provide extra of the items we would like written out?
Yes please.15% extra of each item are requested for changes to the guest list, ink testing and occasional mistakes.
How should we provide our guest list to you?
Please download the guest list template. It has 3 variations based on your needs (or skill level with excel!).
Please provide the guest list spelled out as you want it written. Ex. Mr. and Mrs. NOT Mr. & Mrs.; Texas NOT TX; Drive NOT Dr.
What happens if there is an error on my list?
We happily fix any errors immediately that are our fault.
Address corrections will cost additional price per set if already addressed and error was not by fault of the calligrapher.
What if my guest list is not complete?
Please have your guest list complete at time of delivery to calligrapher. Incomplete lists will not be priority on our schedule.
Changes and additions to the order, after completion, will be billed with a $35.00 set up fee per set of changes.
How much do you charge for…?
Please visit our pricing page for the current rates. A complete list of fees is attached to the end of this file. For the most accurate quote
or something not mentioned, feel free to contact us with the details of your specific order.
What forms of payment do you accept?
I accept cash, checks, Zelle or credit cards via a payment link. Credit cards incur a 4% processing fee. All orders must be paid in advance before pickup or delivery. Orders shipped in the state of Texas require payment by client of the mandatory state sales tax at the rate of 8.25%. Late fees are assessed at a rate of $35.00 per week past due.
How long does it take for you to complete my order?
Generally we prefer 2 weeks to complete 100 outer envelopes and 5-7 business days for day of materials. Rush orders can be accommodated at an additional fee.
Please see our contact page to request a quote and see if we have availability during your desired time frame.
Do you offer rush services?
We do offer rush services. The fee is 50% of total with less than 5 days, 100% of total withing 24 hours or involving major loss of sleep
or physical pain. Please contact us with the details.
We see that you offer different layout options for envelope addressing. What does that mean?
What is address centering and why is it more?
Thanks for asking! We do offer different layout options from the standard staggered option. Centering is more expensive because it takes longer to
write and layout on each envelope. You are welcome to get creative, we have found that these are the most popular.
We love your calligraphy scripts offered but are looking for something a bit different? Do you offer any other styles?
Yes. The page full of scripts are my most popular and requested styles. About half of them were custom created for clients looking for something a bit different when we began. Please reach out so we can chat about what you are looking for.
