Words with special significance are my reason for writing. There’s something very personal about having them hand written, and arranged in a way that enhances their importance both to giver and recipient. So I am frequently asked to design and write out speeches, poems, quotations and song lyrics that have meant something to the client at a special occasion and also write names on wedding stationery, names on certificates and in memorial books, design birth/special event announcements, certificates and even Freedom Scrolls.
If you want to ask for a quote, I need to know:
your deadline – a rush job may not be possible, sorry, I’m going away a lot this year!
- your text – please email all the words, either within your email or as a Word attachment
- some indication of the kind of thing you had in mind, eg formal or informal, or a bit like something you’ve seen of mine
All original artworks are on good quality paper with as far as possible no-fade paints/ inks.
Contact me by email but I suggest you copy & paste my email address rather than click onto it as that sometimes sends it to my spam box! : email@example.com
For names on certificates or wedding stationery, tell me your needs and I’ll give you some prices. As a guide, straightforward black writing on invitations (Mr Robert and Mrs Angela Scrivener) is usually £2 per entry, place cards (Robert/ Robert Scrivener) £1.50 with possible extra charges for colour, centring, or difficult surface to write on. The commonest script chosen is no 3 below, Italic, or no 7, Copperplate.
All the names need to be supplied as they are to be written, and in one batch; late additional names are subject to a minimum charge of £25. Some possible scripts are shown below, but for livelier scripts please ask.
