YES, YOU SUPPLY THE STOCK.
You supply your stationery and envelopes for me to write on. I write on your printed invitations, envelopes, place cards etc from your stationery supplier/printer. Depending on the job I have some card stock in house and can supply some blank place cards and depending what you require, some envelope stock as well.
YES, PLEASE SUPPLY SPARES OR OVERS
You need to include about 20% extra stock or spares, add at least 10-20 spares as all stock/paper/card are different and react differently to inks, so a test is always required. When writing by hand and using a dip pen and ink, you need to account for surprise splatter, error and those last-minute additions!

YES I DO!
I do one master calligraphy invitation or menu or just certain elements for invitation suites, elements like your names, date and headings for you to take to your printer or letterpress printer so they can reproduce this for you.
When possible, a good lead time is welcomed for wedding work or any large corporate calligraphy work – 3 weeks to a month notice would be great so I am able to schedule your work - notice by phone call or email is required.
YES, I WILL WORK TO A DATE REQUIRED BY.
It does depend on the workflow and booked work at the time. I know the importance of turning around work quickly, so I will work with you to achieve your completion date or deadline.

There is a weekend loading fee that applies to corporate work delivered on a Friday and required the following Monday.
