Many brides are looking for new and original ideas for their wedding invitations, and the perfect choice is totally custom calligraphy invitation. There are so many choices available. Now this can be done totally online! There are many specialty invitations: for the season, eco invitations, destination weddings, invitations that incorporate ribbons, photos; more than I can list. Take your time, and browse through the possibilities. If you are willing to use your creativity you now have the ability to make a totally custom look. You can “design your own” invitation that will have a unique look that no one else has!
I’m really excited to be able to now offer custom calligraphy invitations. Check to see if the book with your invitation will accept “camera ready artwork”. I will write the text calligraphy that will be used to print your invitations. (or simply do just your names and use the computer font for the rest of the invitation) Later on, I can address the envelopes individually (that can’t be pre-printed, although the return address can) By doing it this way you will have a totally custom designed calligraphy invitation!
Of course, you will be able to choose the lettering style of the calligraphy. Perhaps you love a flourished look. Copperplate is traditional, and flourished italic is just gorgeous! Once you have picked the “hand” you will send me your text. When completed, I will provide you with a picture of the finished text for your approval. Then I will send a digital file of your calligraphy text on to your company of choice. This file would then be used for printing on your custom design invitation. There might be a small additional printing fee that will be charged, and it differs from company to company. Be sure to ask what that charge will be so that you won’t be surprised last minute!
In fact, if you don’t want to do the entire invitation in the hand written calligraphy style, you can just decide to have the couple’s name done with beautiful calligraphy, and have the rest of the invitation printed from a computer font choice that you like. You might also consider using calligraphy hand lettering for a logo design to incorporate into your invitation. This would combine the initials of the bride and groom, and can be used as a header, or somewhere in the design of your invitation. That will give that “custom” look and keep the costs down even though you will have a totally unique look to your wedding invitation! There’s no limit on how creative you can be!
