A couple things.

On the two sites we have for vendors, I'm not finding what I'm looking for. First...does anyone know someone who does calligraphy at a good price? There are too many rules to know when addressing invites and I don't want to do them myself!  The knot only has one person under calligraphy and I don't like her style.

Also..where did you get programs done at? I know there is VP, but I just can not find anything on there I like! I've tried for STD's and invites and no luck.

    stephie used calligraphy by angela. http://calligraphybyangela.com/ i looked up probably about 10 people and she was the cheapest. i ended up having my dad do them because he was trained in it but he griped about it the whole time. as a side note, calligraphers will still want you to write out exactly what will go on the envelope. they will probably give you guidance about the rules though!

    for programs, i'm just getting a kit from michael's or staples and printing them myself.

    I found this when I was searching for calligraphers:

    I am having my stationer do digital calligraphy on my envelopes, so I never actually got around to choosing a calligrapher. Angela really does seem to be the cheapest, but it may be her style that you're not a fan of (I think she is the only one that TK lists).

    Here is the link for the DIY programs that I'm working on. The supplies for 150 programs cost me about $30:

    I got my programs through the church coordinator.  They were beautiful and so very classy.

    I LOVED using Angela.  I only had outer envelopes and she only charged $1 each--well worth it I thought.  Plus, she is just really sweet, like Becky.  I gave her my guest list typed up for her to use.

    I DIY'd my programs using a kit that I printed on my laser printer (PIB).  Very easy and did the job.  Etsy would be good too.

    I made my own programs in Publisher.  I took them to staples to be printed.
