I think Mrs Snow Pea actually does this.  You also could call a local paper store and ask if they have recommendations.  Many calligraphers have websites, so you can see their work.

If you have time, you can also send them anywhere in the country.  I work with an AMAZING calligrapher in the New England area.  Ted Clausen.  His website is: http://www.tedclausencalligraphy.com/

I know he works with people from all over the country.

Good luck.

I’m not sure what color your envelopes are, but could you use clear labels with a nice font and print out labels, instead of hand writing?

Good luck with whatever you decide to do! 🙂

If you can I would try Michele Clark ([email protected]). She’s a NYC knottie fave. She’s located in Staten Island. I booked her back in October of last year for this month but if you don’t have a huge number of envelopes I would try to see if she can accommodate you. She has been absolutely wonderful to work with and she’s super quick.

 Good luck and let me know if you have any questions.

I had contacted Michele Clark last week and she is in high demand! She said she was booked until mid-July, however, she had a cancellation and was able to fit me in mid-April.

 Goodluck because her work is beautiful!

The other calligrapher I’ve seen on the bridal boards is:

Do you have a friend or family member that does caligraphy?  I have a few of my students working on mine.  I just can’t justify spending $2.00 or more per envelope (that’s $4.00 an invite minimum) to have them done by a professional. If you can afford it — good luck!

If you can feed your envelopes through your printer at home, you could always choose a nice calligraphic font like Bickham Pro Regular and print the addresses. This is free, though it takes some time.

We are going to do our envelopes on our printer.  The return address will be done (Bickham) by the printer, and we will do the actual addresses.  You need to experiment on a couple of test envelopes to get the placement you want, but a good quality printer should do a really nice job.  We did all our Save-The-Date Cards that way (mailing and return address, so each envelope through twice) and it took us about 4 hours for 85 envelopes, with a total of five sacraficed because Fiance fed them in wrong side up!!  I had thought it would take much longer, and was really happy with the product.  (It did take us about an hour to get the template to our satisfaction – so I guess 5 hours start to finish.  That included putting on the stamps.)

We did the clear label thing, and it worked great!  We were able to use a font we wanted and didn’t have to waste envelopes screwing up… I was initially going to do it myself, too, but it’s just too late.

another huge rave for michele clark — she did my invitations, BM’s notecards and placecards.  see my post about her with photos here.  give it a shot and tell her mrs. onion sent you 🙂  if she has a cancellation or you have not too many she might be able to fit you in.  her prices are soooo reasonable and she is sweet as pie and fast!  GL!
