Calligraphy Cost

Hey all! What is the average price of calligraphy for the outside of the main envelope? My invitation lady mentioned doing it on the computer so I don't know if that makes it cheaper.. I forgot to ask her today! =(  Thanks so much!!!

    Doing the calligraphy on the computer should make it significantly cheaper- roughly 39 cents per envelope.   I used  Maureen Campion for hand calligraphy for my invitations- she was amazingly affordable, 75 cents total for both the inner and outer envelope and she did a beautiful job. I was very happy with her work. We did have our place cards done using the computer and I was also very happy with how they came out. We used inkspun calligraphy. we also used them for our programs and menus and with them, nothing cost more than 49 cents. i was really happy with how everything turned out.

    I used a computer calligraphy from Tampa Calligraphy, it was 50 cents an envelope and looked great, I found hand calligraphy was a lot more.

    I paid Michele Clark $1 per outer envelope.  Computer calligraphy is much cheaper, but in my opinion, not even comparable to hand calligraphy.  If a real calligraphy look is important to you, you've got to go with the real deal...

    I think inkspun is very good.  And I agree hand calligraphy may be nice, but if budget is a concern, you can't go wrong with computer calligraphy. Plus, of all the weddings I've attended, I only kept the invitations and programs - the envelopes long thrown out.  So while it may look nice, most folks really care about what's on the inside that they keep.  GL.

    We also used Michele Clark at $1 per outside envelope. We also had her do our placecards for $0.25 each.
