PROCESS AND DETAILS

Hello! Thanks for reaching out about my spot calligraphy services. For each of the items in the list, you will receive a piece in the calligraphy style of your choice, delivered digitally.

Deliverables Each piece of spot calligraphy is hand-written in pen and ink, then scanned at high-resolution and carefully cleaned up and processed for digital use. Standard file preparation will be used so you receive either a transparent .png file or an .eps file with basic vectoring. If you require full, manual vectorization (recommended for reproduction at large sizes or for use in a more permanent setting) additional hourly charges will apply.

Calligraphy Styles. The lettering options above are examples of styles that I can do, however these are just starting points. I am happy to discuss if you have any specific needs.

Usage Rights. All pricing includes full usage and printing rights for unlimited applications for a single event or project. Please note this refers to the calligraphy in the exact, original lockup—e.g. the usage rights do not cover separating single words from a full paragraph and using those individually. Please discuss licensing options with me if you wish to use the artwork for ongoing use beyond the stated event, for resell, or for any commercial purpose.

Design Rounds. Couple’s Names, Invitations and Menus include a standard two-round design process, where layout sketches will be presented for review and feedback before the finished piece moves forward.

Timelines. Project timelines differ from a few days and up depending on the scope and scale. I am available for rush projects if needed, so please ask!
