    I’ve never heard of anyone hiring a calligrapher for their save-the-dates (as opposed to invitations). Mine were postcards, and I just wrote them out myself.

    I tried to print them but couldn’t get it to line up right, how I wanted, so I just hand wrote them. lol

    I handwrote my save-the-dates, but I’m probably going to do the invitations with a printer. But we’ll have to see how that goes =P

    I printed on label sheets and then cut them out so it was one of those wrap labels (that folds around the envelope with the to on the front and the from on the back)

    @thesejoys: same. I have a great resource of very expensive script fonts I had to buy for my design business.. it doesn’t make sense for me to send them out to be hand scripted.

    As much as I love pretty handwriting, for me it just wasn’t worth it to hand write them. It takes such a long time, and people probably won’t even notice.

    Printer all the way around for me – I don’t like my handwriting. Our save the dates I found an awesome font that I actually got a lot of compliments on – it was VERY realistic. For the invitations we are doing wrap around labels.

    We did our Save-the-Dates in the printer. The invitations will probably be the same. I have some fancy fonts that mimic calligraphy, anyway. 🙂

    I hand wrote our STD’s but we’re planning on hiring a calligrapher for the invites. I just love how it looks.

    Today I bought clear labels to print address for the STD and I probably will hire a calligrapher for the invites because my handwriting looks like a second graders.

    I love getting handwritten mail myself, so I’ll be addressing both our save the dates and our invites myself most likely.

    Unless I figure out a way to get the invitation envelope through the printer… I may print those using a font that matches our ordered invites if I find one.

    For the invitations, my mom has a friend with good hand writing that she is paying to write the invitations. It’s not calligraphy but good enough. I think they’re just going to do each other favors (my mom is a hairdresser) to pay each other back. For the STDs, I’m going to write them myself. My handwriting is not the best.. but I honestly don’t care. It looks good enough for an STD. I say go for it and write it yourself. Just give yourself breaks so it doesn’t start looking terrible 🙂
