Your calligraphy project is unique. Each project is individually priced.
Some elements of the price are predetermined.
Describe your job as clearly as possible and you will receive a detailed estimate usually between 1-14 business days. If you need your estimate quickly, please let me know. I sometimes am so busy with deadlines I put this off.
Pricing changes as the specs for the job change.
All elements of the project are negotiable and will affect the price.
Envelope Addressing $2.00/line
Table Cards $2.00 each with name and numeral on the same side
