Envelope Addressing Guidelines
All my work is handlettered.
My starting rate to address envelopes is $3.00 per address, and is based
on a typical 3-line address, translucent papers, black ink, and a formal
Italic style. (Click

Highly-textured stock, dark or opaque stock, glossy surfaces, ornate
letterstyles, lengthy addresses, typeface matching, and color matching
are some factors where upcharges might apply.
All shipping and delivery costs are the client's responsibility.
A.) a typed list (12-point Arial or Times or similar using upper-
and lowercase) with complete names, addresses, and zip codes as you
want them to appear on the outside and inside envelopes. See an example
below. I'm happy to advise with this after we have agreed to work together
if you need help preparing this before you send it to me.
B.) 15-20% extra envelopes
C.) a 25% nonrefundable deposit to hold the date and reserve
studio time. This is applied to your final bill. Should you decide to
cancel, this acts as a cancellation fee.
D.) Studio minimum is $60.
It is customary to mail formal invitations 6-8 weeks in advance of the
event. Typically, I need 2-4 weeks to complete an envelope addressing
project. Plan to have your materials to me 12 weeks before your event
so you'll have time to stuff and stamp them for mailing after I complete
the calligraphy. My studio is active, so please book well in advance
to reserve your calligraphy services. Rush orders are accepted if schedule
permits. An upcharge may apply. Check with me.
An invitation for you...
Your event is unique! I am experienced in working with all sorts of
custom variables, so please feel free to discuss your personal calligraphy
visions with me.
