I ran into some huge setbacks involving our invitation order and now we don’t have enough time to get our invitation envelopes to a calligrapher. Any thoughts on printing these out on our own? Which font looks the most like calligraphy?

i like blackladder
french script and several others

my calligrapher has a super high turn around time and we got our envelopes back from her in two days. most other callgraphers took two weeks

I decided if I don’t go with calligraphy I’m using “Swan Song.”

We liked the Blackjack font and also the Dear Joe/Joe Hand group of fonts.

Seconding lucinda calligraphy. We printed the return addresses with that font, and hand wrote the guests’ addresses ourselves in our own ugly (but cute, right? right?) handwriting.
Print a test envelope and see if the ink will smudge. Even some laser printers smudge with some of paper. So make sure before you print them all.

i would never pay someone to write envelopes. in my opinion, its a big waste of money for a ripped peice of paper that will end up in a recycling bin(and an unnessesary added stress to give someone else the control and have to worry about how fast they get done, how nice they look etc). we will print ours using the same font as part of our invitation wording, “duchess”.

what about making those cute wrap around labels you can buy a digital file to print your self off etsy or take to a printer like office depot to be done cheaply that’d be cute and not cost a lot or take a lot of time
