Envelope calligraphy makes a bold statement and puts a smile on your guests' faces the second they see your wedding invitation in their mailbox.
Envelope calligraphy for return address on RSVP envelopes either purchased from The Artisan Abode or provided by client. We offer several calligraphy styles and endless ink color options to ensure a cohesive aesthetic throughout your stationery.
Certain ink colors will work best with specific envelope colors. If your requested color combination seems problematic, we will reach out with our concerns and offer alternative solutions. Please keep in mind that calligraphed envelopes may take longer to reach their destination than printed mail. In addition, light colored inks on dark colored envelopes may take even longer to reach their destination in the USPS mailing system.
For client-provided envelopes, you are required to provide 15% extra envelopes for ink testing, mistakes, and last-minute additions. If you are local to the 37174 area code, you may drop off/pick up your envelopes at an agreed upon day, time and location. If shipping is required, all mailing costs are the responsibility of the client.
Guests mailing lists MUST be typed and in the exact format you would like your envelopes to read. If your list contains abbreviations, then we will write your state, city, etc. abbreviated. For guest lists with more than 20% addresses containing additional lines (apt #'s, international countries, additional names, etc.), there will be a $0.50 surcharge per piece. Please send us a message prior to ordering if this pertains to you.
Should you receive envelope(s) with any errors on our part, let us know and we will provide a replacement as soon as possible. If your order contains errors that were originally listed in the mailing list, the client is responsible for a $25 set up fee + cost of new envelope(s).
All envelope orders have a minimum 2 week turnaround time from the moment we receive your envelopes and completed mailing list to the time they are completed. For orders of more than 100 envelopes, please add one week to the turnaround time for every 50 envelopes.
