Handwritten Calligraphy

Handwritten Calligraphy

A Special Touch For Your Special Event

Purple Wagon Designs is lucky to have a calligrapher who knows that handwritten calligraphy can make all the difference and add a classy touch to your stationery. Envelope addressing calligraphy can make a beautiful first impression to your guests, and remember – a first impression is a lasting one. Make their mailbox a gift box with the special detail of handwritten calligraphy.

Many of our Wedding Stationery Suite clients also choose calligraphy for their reception place cards. It’s the perfect way to show your guests how much you appreciate their part in celebrating your love.

Handwritten Calligraphy Pricing and Styles

Pricing for handwritten calligraphy varies depending on the style you choose. Go with a simple, modern block lettering or pull out all the stops with a fancy script style. Choose from Purple Wagon Designs’ five handwritten calligraphy styles: Amber, Lydia, Amy, Jonah, and Melissa. Contact us for samples and choose the perfect one to fit your personality and event.

Block calligraphy is the most affordable, with script styles at the higher end. Price ranges are:

  • Outer & inner envelope addressing: $3.25 – $4.00* per set
  • Outer envelope addressing only: $2.00 – $2.75* per envelope
  • Place cards (includes name and table number): $1.00 per card

*Dark envelopes and/or lettering in colors other than black will result in a higher charge.

Computer Calligraphy

Purple Wagon Designs also offers computer calligraphy, a process by which you get the look of calligraphy at a lower cost. Guest names and addresses are printed directly on your envelopes, with a number of choices, including inner and outer envelope addressing, with or without a matching return address.

Computer calligraphy is an excellent option for a smaller budget, while still adding a unique look to your invitations. Not only is it delightfully affordable, it can be turned around more quickly than handwritten calligraphy, generally in just five to ten days from receipt of your guest list. If you’d like, Purple Wagon Designs will even help you choose a style coordinating your envelope to match your invitations perfectly.
