Wedding Envelope Calligraphy
Envelope calligraphy is one of the ways you can let your guests know you are personalizing things just for them to share a special day with you. In other words, a gift and a way to express how much someone's presence mean to you.
Things to take into consideration:
Your invitations are a special piece of mail and your guests, therefore, they should be special
It's good etiquette
It saves you some time
It looks gorgeous
Have a list
Proofread and have it ready to send the calligrapher
Take into account the amount of time you need to send your invites.(don't expect the calligrapher to fill in 400 envelopes in a day)
Make sure you send at least 1-3 extra envelopes (accidents may happen)
Select the right ink color (your calligrapher can also advise you based on the color scheme you have selected for your envelopes)
Ask for a sample to make sure you are satisfied before the calligrapher starts addressing your envelopes.
