Q. How should we send our guest list to you?
Please send your guest list via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. The guest list should be prepared as a Microsoft Word document written out as you would like them written on your envelope. Excel spreadsheets are also acceptable - please have columns for name, guest name, address, city, state, zip and country . Handwritten lists will not be accepted in order to prevent errors.
For international addresses, we ask that you lay them out exactly as they should be written out on the envelope. There is an additional $1.00 fee per international address to look up proper mailing guidelines. You can look up guidelines for international addressing HERE.
Q. Etiquette questions?
Some clients prefer to follow strict etiquette while others prefer a more casual approach. The most important part of preparing your list is to make sure that you type out exactly how you want your guests names to appear on your envelope.
For your convenience, you can view the traditional addressing etiquette guidelines for addressing your invitation envelopes HERE.
Q. How do you handle list additions, changes and errors?
Additions to your list are easily accommodated before your job is completed and packaged for return. Additions will be charged accordingly with no additional service fees.
Even with careful review, errors can happen. I am happy to correct any errors on my part free of charge. Errors due to problems with the list or late changes will be charged the standard addressing rate.\
Q. How much time will my calligraphy project take?
Wedding invitations are typically mailed 6-8 weeks before the wedding. Please reserve time for your calligraphy project in advance. 100 envelopes takes approximately 4-5 days, depending on my schedule, plus mailing time. 100 place cards take 2-3 days. To ensure availability, please book in advance.
Q. Do you take rush orders?
I pride myself on a quick turnaround time. Depending on current workload, rush orders may be accommodated. Please don't hesitate to ask. A rush order service fee may apply.
