If you would like custom or metallic ink colors, expect an additional 10% to the total order cost. Some companies may charge a flat rate of 50 cents per invitation when using any other color besides black ink. In the case that the envelope must be treated before the calligraphy is applied, expect a minimum of an additional 50 cents per envelope. This is often the case when the calligrapher works with paper that is shiny or difficult to write on.
Be sure to send an invite if you've sent a save the date: The save the date is a courteous heads_up about your wedding date, but it is not an invitation. Keep careful track of who you send save the dates to and make sure they all receive an invitation. I have heard a lot couples tell me that their invitation quantity is going down after they receive responses to the save the date, because some people can't attend. Nothing is more confusing or heartbreaking than receiving a save the date and then never receiving an official invitation. Also, make sure to send an invitation to guests that cannot attend. Not sending an invitation implies the guest is no longer invited.
