The second hour will be individual instruction on other hands-foundational, uncials, black letter, Roman caps., etc. and/or subjects pertaining to calligraphy-color, illumination, golds, etc.
The deadline for signing up October 16, to give me a chance to order the necessary supplies and materials.

is one of many services I offer. While black ink and the formal Italic hand are standard, I can also match fonts similar to the type faces of the bride's invitation.
Formal Italic/Black ink are standard
Per envelope___$1.00 each envelope
+ $1.00 Per line
Lined or dark envelopes. $1.00 each per set (inner and outer envelopes)
Matching printer's font. $.50 per set
Color match (other than black) for writing. $.50 per set
Rush orders-add 50%
*Some envelope finishes are wonderful to address while others can present major problems in accepting ink or gouache. Therefore, I must charge an additional $.50/envelope, to "treat" each difficult envelope before writing on it. I need to test one before I can accurately quote the price.
A lot of my work consists of commissioned pieces like the works shown.
I can offer anything from black letters on white paper to 24K gold on vellum, illustrated or illuminated.
I calculate the cost of a simple writing by the letter-$.40 to $1.00 per letter- and the materials I am incorporating. Then, depending on the budget, I can include artwork.
