Place cards and similar projects for a single event must be planned in advance, with complete lists and materials provided a minimum of 5 days before you need them in hand. Otherwise the following rush fees will be applied:

  • Less than 5 working days: 30% rush fee for 150+ names
  • Less than 3 working days: 60% rush fee for 100+ names
  • Next day turnaround: 100% rush fee regardless of quantity
  • Same day turnaround: 150% rush fee regardless of quantity

A set-up fee of $35 is charged per project session, regardless of quantity, and will apply to additions after completion of the project. Projects with an estimate over $500 require a 50% retainer to secure it into the studio schedule.

Please provide a minimum extra 15% in quantity in case of spoilage. Prices assume that the paper stock is suitable for calligraphy and that no additional treatment will be required before writing. If you would like me to provide the paper, a sourcing charge of $50 will apply, in addition to the cost of materials purchased.

Delivery. Clients are responsible for arranging and cost of delivery of items to and from the studio location in Chelsea, Manhattan. I am able to ship or arrange for messenger services, however the cost will be billed to you.

The completed pieces will be ready at least two days before the event. After this time, you have 24 hours to inform me of any misspellings, so I can redo them at no additional cost. Rush jobs will be subject to a tighter schedule.

On-Site Services. For clients in NYC who anticipate receiving lots of additions and edits, I can provide on-site services on the day to accommodate last minute additions right up until it begins. On-site calligraphy is charged at $150 per hour (weekdays, 9am–5pm), or $175 per hour (evenings and weekends), with a 2 hour minimum. Additional travel expenses will be added for distances beyond a 45 minute drive of Manhattan.

Please note that studio rates are subject to change at any time.
