These prices are here to stay! My philosophy has always been to make calligraphy affordable for customers and to take stress off brides, so they don't have to worry about addressing their envelopes.
My turnaround time is only 1-2 weeks compared to 2-6 weeks online and at other retail stores.
Some calligraphers will stamp their name and phone number on the back of YOUR wedding envelopes. But I believe your wedding envelopes are just that, your wedding envelopes. I do not put my name anywhere on your envelopes or place cards.
100% of total is due before the calligraphy is started due to the nonrefundable nature of the work. All sales are final. If you would prefer to work through the US Postal Service, UPS or Fed-Ex, Prater Calligraphy will return ship to you free of charge!
Prater Calligraphy accepts VISA, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, cash & checks ($50 charge for returned checks).
