Calligraphy on Envelopes

My base fee is $1.50 per line. This applies to black waterproof ink on white, unlined envelopes no larger than 9” x 12”, including envelopes for escort cards. For opaque/lined envelopes, or envelopes with a shiny or slick surface, add $1/envelope.

Calligraphy on Placecards

$1.50 per line for standard sizes. Standard sizes include 3 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ and 3 1/2” x 2”. If your placecards do not have a standard size, please contact me at raoul@calligraphybyraoul.com for a quote.
