I am looking for a calligrapher in either the LA or Orange County areas. I would like someone who specializes in formal script lettering (copperplate for example) and uses a fairly fine pen. I am also looking to spend no more than $1.50 an envelope. Does anyone have someone they can refer me to?

well the lady that did mine uses a few different computer system, and ours came out amazing and fancy. it was 1.50 an envelope. i highly reccomend her.
i called SEVERAL other hand calligraphers and they were all 2.50 and up for their hand jobs (no pun intended).
the ladys business is called Personally Yours by Beth.
i know its not exactly what you were lookin for, but i hope i helped =)

How does that look in comparison to hand calligraphy?

Im using Jessica from Moira Events & Design in San Diego (close enough 🙂 shes been great to work with so far (we just got our Save-The-Date Cards out). here is a link from her blog that has a couple different examples in it: http://www.moiraevents.com/blog/2010/02/todays-calligraphy-work.html as well as some pics below:
here is our save the date envelope (note, this was the picture she sent to me as an example – the word “California” actually fit on the envelopes, just not the first one she tried 🙂 :
I know our enevlepes were a bit higher than $1.50, but i had custom ink mixed in super pale blue (swoon) and i requested the lettering take up most of the envelope. give her a call and see what she says, shes been pretty flexible with everything for me so far.
