How long does calligraphy take?

Calligraphy addressing for envelopes requires two weeks turn around time, not including shipping. Two week time period begins when I have all stock and guest lists on hand.  Place cards are done 2 weeks prior to the event. Digital calligraphy requires 3-5 business days depending on the complexity of the work. Email me with all the details and I will get back to you within 2 business days.

How do I prepare a guest list?

Please prepare your guest list in a Word document, alphabetical order. Include all titles and spell out all street names, cities and states. I will write the names and addresses exactly as you have them on your list. You can email your list to mellenseidman@gmail.com. 

Is all your calligraphy done by hand?

All my calligraphy is done by hand, using a traditional dip pen and inks or gouache, a watercolor paint used to match just about any color.

Can you match a style to my invitation suite?

Yes, send me a sample of your font for me to match, most times I can match or find a calligraphy style that compliments your invitation.

Do you do rush work?

Yes, in most cases I can accommodate a rush job, call or email me with your calligraphy emergency and I will help you if I can!  Rush fees apply.
