Hand lettering is the perfect way to add that special touch to any event! From all the paper goodies like envelopes, escort cards, place cards, menus, thank you cards, to custom signage that displays your wedding programs, a custom welcome sign for your guests, or some other creative escort card like marble tiles or sand dollars…There really are no limitations!

This is the part where you submit your final mailing list or final wording for the project. For more information on file type for your mailing list please see the ‘How to submit your mailing list’.

This is the part where, depending on what the project is, samples will be provided over the course of a few days to a week depending on the size of the project. This is your opportunity to provide revisions before the project begins. To keep with the timeline, three rounds of revisions are permitted before the project becomes delayed. Once final approval is given the project will be begin!

HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR MAILING LIST
Final mailing list can be submitted as a Word document or an Excel Spreadsheet to me by email.
Your guest list should have the guest names exactly how you would like them to appear on the envelopes. I usually abbreviate the street suffix or the state name depending on the placement of the lettering unless otherwise specified. Please make sure all addresses are correct before sending.
