frequently asked questions

What calligraphy items do I need for my wedding?

This is totally up to you and your budget! Please see my recommended wedding packages for items commonly purchased for weddings.

Personally, I recommend to start with a welcome sign and go from there!

Do you have a minimum order amount? What should I expect my investment to be?

The minimum order amount is $150. You can purchase items a-la carte or by packages (or both!).

The ceremony package starts at $375, the essentials package starts at $675 and the full suite package starts at $875. You should expect to invest somewhere within that range if you would like a matching set of calligraphy items for your big day.

If you are interested in a welcome sign a la carte only these start at $170.

How long before my event date should I book?

Depending on availability I can book 2-3 weeks prior to an event, however my schedule does begin to fill up at least a year in advance so it isn’t always guaranteed that I will have ability if not booked in advance. I recommend booking as early as possible!

 

If scheduling allows for it, I can take on orders with less than two weeks turnaround, however they are subject to a rush fee.

What surfaces do you letter on?

For signage the most common surfaces I use are acrylic, chalkboards and mirrors.

Please note I am not currently offering wood signage.

 

For smaller items like place cards – the options are nearly endless! The most common surfaces I use for place cards are paper and acrylic.

What rentals do you offer?

My rental catalogue is coming soon for easy browsing.

I currently have a select few easels, a copper arbour and various mirror and chalkboard surfaces available for rent. Please inquire if you are interested in rentals and we can discuss what is available and what will work best for your event!

Do you offer digitally printed signs (for ex. on foam core, or poster board) or vinyl lettering signs?

No, I do not offer digitally printed large signs or signs with vinyl applied. All of my signage is painted with care completely by hand. This does require more time to create, but I believe the beautiful bespoke outcome is totally worth it!

 

The only items I currently offer digitally printed are menus. Any calligraphy elements of the menu design are hand lettered by myself digitally and added into the design.

Do you deliver the completed items and/or rental items?

Yes! I can deliver your items to your home before your event, or to the event location on the day of.

 

Delivery to most locations within the GTA is $40 (pricing is confirmed once an address is provided).

 

If you are local, free pick up from my location in East Gwillimbury is always an option!

Do you pick up rentals after the event?

Yes! If you are renting an item, I can also come to your event space at the end of the night to pick up, or to another location after the event day.

 

Pick up from most locations within the GTA is $40 (pricing is confirmed once an address is provided).

 

If you are local, free drop off to my location in East Gwillimbury is always an option!

Do you set up the signs on-site the day of the event?

Yes! If I’m delivering the day of your event, if you or your event planner provide instructions beforehand, I can set up the signage on easels/tables etc. wherever they need to be.

 

The only items I don’t set up are place cards or menus. I do provide these organized by table to make it super easy for your on-site coordinator to arrange on the tables though!

Can you make a totally custom sign or project that I don’t see on your website?

Absolutely! I love jumping into new projects and creating something totally new and unique for you. Feel free to reach out with your ideas!

Do you require a deposit?

Yes, I require a 50% deposit on booking to secure your date and my services.

Do you provide a design proof?

Yes! After you have booked, and close to your event date once any details, guest numbers etc. have been confirmed, I will provide a digital design proof for you to approve before I begin the painting process.
