Ok so maybe its not so much a conudrum but its just a little concern at this point. We’re in the process of ordering our save-the-dates from an online site (and eventually our invites as well) but I can’t seem to locate a calligrapher… that isn’t insanely expensive!
I’m sure this topic has been discussed a zillion times but I’m a newbee. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to get the calligraphy done and not breaking the bank? I only want it for the outside enevelopes. And, maybe you can tell me what the average cost even should be for this service.
I live in Queens, NY so if I’d have to drop something off I’d need to be around here. But if there a services to mail it I’ll be so siked!
PS. How ridiculous is it that I bought a lil calligraphy set to try my hand at it… totally didn’t work, it was a MESS lol.

Here’s a link to a DIY calligraphy post by Jenn at "With This Ring." She printed out addresses on her envelopes using her computer (and light ink), then traces over them with a calligraphy pen. Might be especially good for you, since you already own the supplies!

A lot of people are starting to believe that calligraphy is a dead art form. Most of what is out on the web now a days could best be described as pretty writting.
Please check out http://www.carlascalligraphy.com and view my samples. Hopefully I can help you make your wedding an event to remember.

i live in queens as well and used Michele Clark (she lives in staten island). She is amazing! I’ve gotten such an overwhelming response from my guests already. she is extremely professional, very quick (with phone calls, emails and finishing the work) and AFFORDABLE! i didnt want to break the bank and when i looked around originally all the calligraphers i looked up were priced pretty high. if you do reach out to Michele and like her….book her quickly! since she is so affordable ALOT of girls use her.
her email is [email protected]
