DO I NEED TO PROVIDE EXTRA STATIONERY?

Yes.  I typically ask for 15% extra materials (i.e. envelopes, place cards, note cards, etc.) to allow for additions, corrections and the occasional oopsie.

DO YOU REQUIRE A DEPOSIT? 

Yes.  My availability is not confirmed until I receive a deposit from a client.  The deposit is either $100 or actually receiving your stationery in hand, whichever comes first.  For clients that would like to secure my time before they order their paper products, a $100 deposit is required.  The deposit will be applied towards the final invoice amount.  If you already ordered your stationery and have it in hand, I will also take that as a deposit to secure your calligraphy production time.

WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU TAKE? 

For local clients who pick up in person I accept cash, checks, credit cards or PayPal. For out-of-town clients I accept credit cards or PayPal. All orders must be paid in advance before pickup or delivery.

I DON'T LIVE IN THE SAME CITY AS YOU.  CAN WE STILL WORK TOGETHER?

 Absolutely! I work with clients nationwide. Design proofs are emailed and stationery can be sent via mail to my studio. Once your order has been completed I will carefully package it and send it back to you via UPS, USPS or FedEx. Clients are responsible for all shipping charges.

HOW LONG WILL MY ORDER TAKE? 

All my work is handwritten and dependent on my schedule.  The general guideline is 5-10 days per 100 envelopes.  Please contact me to check availability for your dates.  Availability is not confirmed until I receive a deposit or your stationery in hand.

DO YOU TAKE RUSH ORDERS? 

Because all my work is handwritten I try not to rush my work at the expense of quality.  I also take great pride in working as quickly as possible for all orders.  Depending on my current schedule and availability I may be able to accommodate a rush request.  Additional charges may apply.
