no idea, but most good calligraphers dont use a light box (arent they supposed to be able to do it wihtout tracing?) for this exact reason.  most formal enveloeps are too dark to see through anyhow (like paper source enveloeps) other wise, ive seen some calligraphers draw super light lines onto the envelope with a pencil and then erase them after the ink dries. is this an otpion for your calligrapher?

I created a special diecut template for a job where I hand-lettered scroll boxes. It was the only safe way to do them without smudging or dripping because the box surface was waxy. Then, after I finished all 200 of them (in Old English Blackletter, no less), I discovered that I had made the perfect template for all opaque or darkly lined envelopes. I can work so quickly with it, I don’t even charge extra for the trouble anymore!
