- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Each project and price is completely unique. Your quote will depend on the style of calligraphy you would like, size of the piece, number of pieces, type of ink, and many more factors! Tell me your calligraphy dreams and I will create a custom quote. We can alter aspects to try and meet your budget. Calligraphy can get expensive if you need multiple pieces (hello weddings!). I ask for 30% down payment, and installments until the project is completed. Envelope pricing starts at $4 per envelope for name and address. Return addresses and some styles/colors are an additional fee. Custom invitation designs start at $100. Letters, poems, phrases start at $45 plus $0.65 per word.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Show me your vision board! Do you have a reference piece? A Pinterest board? A rough sketch? The more I can understand about your style and your event the better your project will suite you. Once I know what pieces you want I will draft rough sketches for you to approve before starting your project. I always send progress pictures along the way!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am a self taught calligrapher. While I do not have any formal training, I have attended workshops put on by prominent artists. We calligraphers also do hours and hours of drills and practice!
