wedding calligraphy prices houston texas hey bernadette

Beautiful writing elevates the ordinary to the awe inducing; envelopes become keepsakes, place cards are displayed on bookshelves, and beloved quotes are transformed into art. If you want your guests to know they're important to you calligraphy will tell them before they've even read a word.


Each work calligraphed is produced by hand using fine quality lettering materials in a slow, methodical process. Calligraphy isn't about speed, it's about tradition. Below you will find the prices for my personal hand lettered brush calligraphy - pieces that are not duplicated digitally or by a printing process. These items are priced by the piece and prices are variable and depend on what is requested.

If you don't see what you're looking for priced here contact me and I'll be happy to give you a custom quote. These prices are subject to change and do not include tax, shipping, or other fees.

Most - if not all - upgrades to paper, inks, etc. are available and will increase the price per piece.
If the piece is to be hand-lettered front and back, typically add an additional 50% of the total cost per item.
