Guidelines and Templates
Calendar & Timelines
Once we finalize dates and your requirements, I will send agreement details to you, including a customized timeline for your use.
Your timeline will include dates for all calligraphy activities ~ shipping, templates, guests lists, proofing, delivery, etc.
Guests Lists Templates
The templates below include examples and directions for you to add your guests' names and addresses.
(Templates are also available on the knot's website.)
Important: Names and addresses should be entered exactly as you want them, for both outer and inner envelopes.
Once your list is complete, please send it to me as an email attachment.
Number of Envelopes
Please include 15% more envelopes than the number planned for your mailing. Why?
Hand lettering is an art, valued for the personal touch. . . . ink spatters can happen . . . as can a need for guests lists spelling or title changes, corrected zips, etc. . . .
Changes and Additions
Additions and changes received BEFORE lettering preparation begins will be included with no additional charge.
Embellishments (ribbons, etc.)
Because lettering requires a writing surface flat and free of embellishments,
if you are embellishing your envelopes or paper, please plan this for after lettering is completed and delivered to you.
If you provide a template envelope showing the embellished area, I will not letter in that area.
Arranging shipping and cost of shipping is client responsibility, unless we have agreed upon another arrangement.
I have door to door shipping and post office addresses at each of my locations.
