For an additional fee, the calligrapher may seal, stamp, and mail the wedding invitations. Excluding the cost for stamps, you can expect to pay an additional 50 cents per invitation. Keep in mind that if you go with this option, you will not be able to proofread the envelopes before they are mailed out. If you plan on mailing the invitations yourself, expect to pay a standard shipping fee for the completed order to be sent back to you.
It's very important to know how many guests will be attending your wedding, so make sure to leave enough time to get back those RSVP cards early. A standard rule of thumb is to order 10% more extra envelopes than you think you may need. This will come in handy if your calligrapher accidentally makes a mistake while addressing the invitations. Save a few extra invitations to keep as mementos for yourself and close relatives.
