Be neurotic about postage and mailing: Make sure that your invite has the correct postage. Nothing replaces a conversation with the Post Office. Have it examined and weighed, buy proper postage __ don't save money here! Be careful about addressing: light colors and elaborate calligraphy can interfere with mailing. Also be sure to mail one to yourself before the rest go out. This will confirm that you used proper postage and give you a keepsake with a postmark from your local post_office.
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.
