I think it ranges from $1 – $3, though I have heard of some people charging $5. HTH!

My calligrapher charges $2.50 for an outer envelope, $1.25 for an inner envelope, and 75 cents for an escort card/place card.

Hi, blushingaudrey! I just sent you a private message about my (el-cheapo, but el-nice-o) calligraphy services, along with a link where you can see images of my work. As a bride-to-be myself, I hope I can help!

I got a good price from Maren Nicholas http://www.dreamweavercalligraphy.com — just mailed her my invites.  I don’t remember exactly what it was, but the website will say.  I think it was less than $2 per inner/outer set.  s very nice & responsive….and the calligraphy is really pretty (prettier than it looks on the website, in my opinion).

Around here we could get them as cheap as $1.25-1.50…but I decided to do it myself.  I just bought a calligraphy kit, downloaded a font I liked, printed all the characters I would need (uppercase, lowercase, numbers) on a piece of paper and practiced a little (not much).  I printed a piece of paper with lines on it and inserted it into the envelope so that I could keep my lines straight.

Can you believe it, I’ve had more than a few people ask me who did my calligraphy and they were really impressed that I did it myself.
