I have been doing calligraphy since 1994 and have used it a lot over the years to make cards for relatives and friends.
My calligraphy skills were also in demand at the bank where I worked. I would often be called upon to put names on invites and place cards for events and the occasional wedding, although I never received any payment for my efforts beyond the odd box of chocolates!
I am now offering a calligraphy service as an extension of my art business.
You may have a piece of wording that is particularly meaningful for you and would like it written out in calligraphy to be framed. Please see some examples of wording/song lyrics in the gallery page.
I can take on larger-scale commissions of approximately 300-400 words, featuring line drawings if required. Pricing for such a commission is £100.
I also put names on any invitations, place cards, certificates, etc., in a choice of styles, either in black or colour.
Price per name, including postage back to you:-
£2.50 for orders up to 50
£2.00 for orders between 51 and 100
£1.50 for orders of 101 or more
Here are examples of the some calligraphy styles:-
I can also offer to do line drawings of churches, houses, wedding venues or even a Coat of Arms if required, for using on invitations, order of service, etc. Price for this is £25. An example is attached:-
