Calligraphy Services Questionnaire
Our lettering calendar fills up quickly, so please allow enough time to have your envelopes completed. Invitations should be sent out at least 8 weeks before your wedding, you should have your calligrapher booked at least 2-5 months before your wedding. All orders are required to complete a contract and deposit. A retainer of 50% is due at the time of booking to reserve our services. Submitting a calligraphy contract without a deposit does not book your desired completion date. Letter Create will not hold your desired date for you after 7 days of failure to pay your deposit. After 7 days, Letter Create will book your desired completion date to the next inquiry who would like that date.
It is the client’s job to purchase and supply the high-quality paper, invitations or other materials.
We can provide you with a list of selected vendors if you are not purchasing your entire suite or materials from us.
Please send us a sample to test before we sign a contract OR please tell us what you have in mind so we can review it, or before you go out and buy it bulk. Not all paper is suitable for pointed pen calligraphy. After we test it or review it and let you know if the paper will work, be sure to order 20% extra of all your paper goods (envelopes, escort cards, etc.) This allows for errors on our part, additions to your list, or last minute changes on your part. It will save you from paying rush fees or ordering more paper right before a big event! I do return any unused paper and left over materials to my clients.

Color is one of the most important aspects of your wedding. Color accentuates the theme, sets the tone and brings life to your special day. When picking your unique color palette, think about your venue, flowers you always dreamed of, and specific decor you would like to include.
Your wedding colors will bring your vision to life and combine all of your interests into a cohesive and vibrant design. Also, every color has its own personality – pink exudes femininity, green speaks nature – so your wedding colors should represent your personal style and theme. Choose a color below and see how Laura Hooper Calligraphy can incorporate even the most unique color palettes into a custom and elegant wedding suite.
Please note that since devices, computers and displays can vary greatly and are calibrated differently, all colors viewed online should be considered approximate. Ink varies slightly from press run to press run; we cannot guarantee color match for items ordered at different times. Letterpress inks are hand mixed for each order and vary slightly from colors shown on screen. Sample kits are available so that you may see ink colors in person.
Looking for a color not shown here? No problem — just let us know the Pantone number and we can mix an ink just for you (custom ink mix fee: $45).
A few tips for choosing ink colors: 1. Dark colors are best for small text and for digital printing 2. Choose one or two ink colors for your entire invitation suite for a cohesive look and feel 3. Light ink colors are lovely when letterpressed, but can be difficult to read when flat/digitally printed 4. Metallic inks are slightly metallic when printed letterpress and more shiny when foil printed.
