I used Earnest Bee Calligraphy & Design for my Save the Dates. Samantha was amazing, and I would definitely recommend her services to anyone. She was very easy to work with and super prompt in answering all of our questions and concerns. Our Save the Dates came out perfect for our winter themed wedding, and Samantha helped us every step of the way with the design and layouts! The entire process was easy and stress free!Apr 14, 2016Verified
I had a totally outstanding experience with Earnest Bee Calligraphy. I reached out to Earnest Bee for the first time and within just a few hours, I heard back with a very thorough response. I described what I was looking for and the very next day I had a draft in my inbox! I approved the sketch and within days my stamp was delivered to my house. I could not be happier. Also, I cant wait to place another order! :) Thanks, Earnest Bee Calligraphy!!Mar 6, 2016
Very responsive and helpful! Samantha was kind enough to help with a photoshop/illustrator request and she was able to fully execute the vision I had in mind!Feb 26, 2016

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I have a standard pricing schedule which can be found at earnestbee.com/pricing
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When I'm hired for envelopes, I love to get an idea of the wedding my clients are planning to make sure that the addressing style will reflect the tone and coordinate with the envelopes. When I'm hired for invitation design, I send out a questionnaire to help get a foundation for the style. We sit down with my client either in person or over Skype and review the desired end product and budget guidelines. Sometimes clients have a specific idea and sometimes we work together to create something that reflects their wedding. I can use a photo, the venue or an element from the wedding to create some sketches for ideas. We'll meet up again or email to review the sketches and create a plan for the invitation suite. We also can add other components such as envelope calligraphy, place cards, menus, programs, signage, etc.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I first learned calligraphy over 15 years ago from my great aunt who was a professional calligrapher. I didn't keep up practice through college but picked it back up after college when I got engaged. I started taking classes and seminars on pointed pen and modern calligraphy. I have been creating things as a business since 2015. I really love creating beautiful, unique pieces.
