Can I ask where you’re located?  I am a master googler and can find you a calligrapher.

You can always hire someone on etsy to do the calligraphy and send it out.

I bought a calligraphy pen, and am going to address the envelopes myself.  As long as you can write in a straight line, your handwriting will look awesome with the right pen.

You can mail your invites to the calligrapher I used in Houston…they also have digital calligraphy which was about $2 less an envelope than hand calligraphy and it looked just as good. Check out PenDance calligraphy. Just a thought if there really is only one calligrapher in your area.

@Utopia4us:  Haha quite possibly.  I would go with the mail-away route.  Most people do that. I got lucky and had a family friend who was in to calligraphy.  I tried to learn how but gave up after the 3rd hour…

@peachacid:  I did mine by way of fauxligraphy, printing out the address really lightly in a fancy-ish font and then tracing over it with a calligraphy pen. I sent my invites out this past Saturday and am already getting compliments!

@Utopia4us:  If you can brave the printer again I highly suggest fauxligraphy. I bought my pen for ~$15 or so at Michael’s. Get the kind with the cartridges so you don’t have to worry about dipping it in ink.

@Utopia4us:  I did faux-ligraphy and it came out great, but that does involve running your envelopes through a printer which sounds like it won’t work for you.  If your envelopes aren’t a dark color you may be able to print out the addresses on paper, slide it into the empty envelope, and trace out the addresses with a calligraphy pen. 

I was originally planning to send my invitations to a calligrapher in NJ who had great reviews and was really inexpensive ($1/each for inner & outer addressing).  But my invitations came in late and I didn’t have time (it takes 3 weeks). 

Good luck!

ETA:  Haha – I see you posted while I typed and had already looked into tracing through the envelope!
