If this is the first time you’ve ordered calligraphy, you’re not alone! Most of our customers are ordering for the first time, and we’re often asked how the process works.
Ordering calligraphy for your wedding – samples
The first step in ordering calligraphy for your wedding is to see a sample. We always recommend asking for a sample of our calligraphy so you can see the quality of our work for yourself.
Calligraphy samples on your stationery – whether you’re sending us your wedding invitations, asking us to address your envelopes or enquiring about wedding place card calligraphy – allow us to test the suitability of your card for our calligraphy pens and inks.
Most cards are suitable for calligraphy. Smooth, heavy papers and cards are best. An uncoated surface is recommended. Very occasionally we find a rustic card (especially those sold by Cox & Cox) are unsuitable for calligraphy. Some pearlescent and glossy surfaces don’t allow absorption of ink.
