I love the idea of having a calligrapher hand write all 150 of my invitations, but times that by $2 per invite and that idea kinda flew out the window. I think I'd rather put that money toward more food or drinks. Then I forgot about one of our sales reps at work who has the best handwriting I have ever seen. I can tell which orders are hers when they come across my desk because of her beautiful writing. She writes in a perfectly straight line without a rule, and she can make it as fancy as I want! Her name is Patti and she ROCKS!! She agreed to write all of my invites as a gift to me (but I am secretly buying her a gift, so I hope she doesn't read my blog). A few weeks ago I asked her to address a couple of Thank You cards for our photographer from the e-pics and the nice guy who let us take pics on his property. Patti did a great job and I cannot wait to see what she will do with my invites! Will you print, hand write or hire a calligrapher to do your invites?
P.S. I had a picture but I cannot find it anywhere which makes me ANGRY. Here are a few inspiration shots from Pen & Ink.
