@koi424:  I’d definitely ask to see a sample of her work first.  I’m always wary about friendors because if they mess up, there is no solution other than suck it up and deal with it.  I hand addressed all of my own invites and just took the names off a simple word document I had.  You’ll probably have to find out from her what information she’ll need to do that for you.

My friends mom did the calligraphy for me.  Not all calligraphy is hard to read.  There are many types.  I am sure you could see a sample of her work.  I think it was a very generous offer.   I would take her up on it but also get her a nice thank you gift (within your budget of course).  I just emailed my friend’s mom my guest list spread sheet that had everyone’s address on it and she gave them back to me to stuff and mail out.  She offered to stuff them, but that was something I wanted to do myself.

Ask to see samples so you can pick the actual font.  Tons of callipgraphy is easy to read, so just pick one like that.  I’d give him an Excel spreadsheet with the guest list and their addresses.  Make sure to give him some extra envelopes in case he messes up too.  25 extra is usually the standard.  Yay for you!!!  Calligraphy can be anything from $2-$5 PER ENVELOPE!!!
