PROCESS AND DETAILS

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.

Once you receive the finished pieces, you have two days to inform me of any misspellings. If they were a result of my oversight will re-do them at no additional cost. Any amendments requested after this time will be subject to an additional project set-up fee. Rush jobs will be subject to a tighter schedule.

Last Minute Services. For clients in NYC who anticipate receiving lots of additions and edits, I provide day-before and day-of services to accommodate last minute needs (and give you greater peace of mind!). These services must be booked before the full project begins in order to guarantee my availability. Pricing for these is as follows:

  • On-Call Service guarantees my availability to work on additions to the original list the day before your event (or on a specific day you request). Pricing is by the hour at $125 per hour with a minimum 1 hour required to book, with no additional per-piece costs.
  • On-Site Services are provided on the day at your venue to accommodate last minute additions right up until the event begins, or even during the event. Pricing for on-site work is done by the hour with no additional per-piece costs:
    • Weekdays, 9am–5pm: $150 per hour with a 2 hour minimum
    • Evenings and Weekends: $175 per hour with a 2 hour minimum
    • An additional 1 hour will be levied for destinations beyond a 45 minute drive from midtown Manhattan.

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