Call calligraphers to view work samples and discuss their fees. Book a calligrapher or ask a friend to assist you with your calligraphy needs. Provide a complete guest list with addresses and envelopes to whoever is addressing the invitations. If applicable, provide calligrapher with seating cards and table number cards.
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.
