Let's Connect

If you’re planning a wedding or special event, preparing the invitations and other printed materials is likely on a long list of overwhelming tasks. Let me turn a potentially burdensome check-list item into a project that can both be stress-free and set the tone for a stunning event.

Just imagine your guest opening the mailbox and, amongst a sea of bills and catalogs, discovering a perfectly crisp envelope, beautifully hand-lettered just for her! Not only will your guest feel honored at this personalized touch, but she also is sure to eagerly anticipate a particularly exceptional event.

I am here to add that special, personal touch to your event experience, and I will guide you through the hand-lettering process step by step.

Here’s how we get started…

  1. Allow me to design a custom calligraphic invitation suite for you, or select your preferred stationer and choose an invitation suite from their offerings.

  2. Be sure to order your invitations and envelopes well in advance! Many engaged couples mail invitations eight weeks prior to the big day; take calligraphy and invitation production time into consideration when you are placing your order.

  3. Drop me a line, so I can get you on my calendar! As you can imagine, wedding season fills up quickly, so earlier is always better. I dedicate specific dates on the calendar just for you and will work with you to determine your needs and timing.

  4. Sign on the dotted line… To secure your spot on the calendar, you will simply need to review the client information packet, sign the contract and submit your deposit. I can help you choose your calligraphy style, talk about a custom style, and help pick out ink colors! I am here to make the process as easy as possible.

  5. Signed, sealed, delivered… Once I’ve completed your project, we will coordinate pick-up, delivery, or shipping options depending upon your location. Final invoices will be submitted and are due upon receipt of materials.

Best wishes to you and your loved one! It’s an honor to be a part of your special day.

Happy Lettering!

“Sarah was a dream to work with. She mixed a custom ink color for me that matched the wording on my invitations—it was absolutely perfect! Even though I’m in Texas and Sarah is in Virginia, she made the entire process so simple and hassle-free. I can say that having Sarah do my calligraphy was totally worth the extra effort to ship across the country!”
