Scribbles & Swirls offers calligraphy for envelopes, escort cards, wedding vows, save-the-dates, and more. Calligraphy is the ancient craft of decorative handwriting - but ancient doesn’t have to mean old-fashioned. This ain’t your Grandma’s calligraphy: Scribbles & Swirls specializes in modern calligraphy that’s elegant, romantic, and sophisticated. When your guests pull your wedding invitation out of their mailbox, the personalized envelope with their name written in gorgeous calligraphy is the first thing they see from your wedding. We want to help you make the best first impression for your perfect day.

process

 

1. consultation

{Contact us} to schedule your calligraphy consultation. We’ll get to know each other and choose a calligraphy style that will complement your project.  

2. proposal

I'll prepare a proposal based on the quantity and options for your project.  I accept a limited number of calligraphy orders each month to ensure that each client receives the attention they deserve.  Proposals are valid for a one week period.  After that, please reach out again to confirm availability.

3. order & deposit

Once you have accepted the proposal and are ready to move forward, a $100 deposit is required to secure your time and schedule.  The remaining balance is due at pickup or prior to shipping.

4. production

I will prepare a sample of the calligraphy style you choose on your sized wedding envelope or a sketch of your signage for review before production begins.  This ensures that you like the layout, sizing and style.  Once I receive approval I will begin your project.  Allow 5 - 10 days per 100 envelopes.

5. delivery

Once your envelopes have been completed I carefully package them and arrange pickup or shipping!  I also offer invitation assembly services as a convenience.  Please inquire for pricing.
