You are going to be spending a good deal of time and money to make your wedding be the absolute best it can be. And part of doing that is putting your own personal stamp on anything that you possibly can. And why not start out from the very beginning putting that special touch on your wedding. When is the first time that many of your guests will learn of your wedding plans? When they open your wedding invitations. And one of the ways to make your invitations super special is to hire a professional calligrapher to hand write your invitations and envelopes with a unique cursive. You will be able to get as creative as you want to as you pick out the style of writing that matches your personality. Think about the tone that this will set as your guests build up a certain expectation for your big day. This ancient art form will put an amazing touch on your gorgeous invitations. But we must forewarn you about something. All calligraphers are not made alike and in fact while there are many that do an amazing job, there are also many who do a subpar job. So, with that in mind, you will want to take your time and make sure that you are going to hire the professional that will more than satisfy you. The way to do this is to start looking for quality candidates in the San Francisco area. Then get ready to ask some pertinent questions of each candidate. To help you, we have provided a guide below that we believe will lead you to the professional you need.
So, the beginning of your journey is looking for quality candidates. We suggest that you start by asking your family, friends and coworkers about any experiences they may have had with a professional calligrapher. If anyone you talk to was completely satisfied, get the name of the calligrapher. And let's not forget about the world wide web. We recommend that you do a Google search for “calligraphers in the San Francisco area.” You should have many returning results. Try and check out as many as you can. Look through the websites of individual calligraphers and get a sense of which ones are of such a quality that you should add them to your potential candidate list. And of course, call up your wedding vendors that you already have a relationship with and ask them if they have any candidates they would recommend you check out.
Now that you have your list, start calling up each candidate and ask for a meeting time when you can sit down and talk about what they might be able to do for your calligraphic needs. Start with their experience. Find out how long they have been doing calligraphy professionally. Where did they receive their training? You definitely want to look at their portfolio. Check out their variety of styles and what they are capable of. Can you see them providing calligraphy for you?
How much will their services cost you? Have a discussion about what affects your cost. How long will it take to have your calligraphy needs completed? A lot of this will depend of how many clients are in front of you. If you really like a particular calligrapher and you can't wait the amount of time they tell you it will be, ask if they allow for rush orders and how much extra it will be. Do they offer other services like stamping, sealing and stuffing of envelopes? If so, we highly recommend that you have them perform these for you.
