ARTISTIC STYLE
I consider it an honor to be a part of your special event and want you to be thrilled!  Before contracting my services, please take a few minutes to browse my gallery to ensure you like and trust my artistic style and ability.  You can be assured the work I create for your project will be of the same quality as pictured on my website.


HANDWRITTEN WORK
Please keep in mind that, unlike computer-generated text, the beauty of hand written calligraphy has a natural variation of the letter forms.  My hand will not make each letter exactly the same every single time.  These variations result in every piece or writing being a unique work of art.


LICENSING
As the artist, I remain the sole owner of all artistic rights.  Commissioned art is for personal use only.  Separate commercial licensing agreements are available.


PHOTOGRAPHY
Emailed copies of professional photography taken of my work are always appreciated.  You are encouraged to share images on social media (credit with “Calligraphy by Scribble Savvy Calligraphy”).  If sharing on Instagram, please tag @scribble_savvy.


QUANTITY CHANGES
If the quantity of guests/product changes after payment of the deposit, the original agreed-upon terms remain in effect.


TEXT SUBMISSION
The provided text will be written exactly as submitted.  For commissioned pieces, no changes may be made once work has begun without an adjustment in the price to account for the additional work required to make the desired change.  Name/address lists may be provided as a Word document or Excel spreadsheet.  Please note that if the text is not submitted by the requested date, it is likely to delay the order deadline.


ADDITIONAL BLANKS
Please understand that error is inevitable in hand-produced work.  For projects such as envelopes and place cards, please provide a minimum of 20% additional blank product with a minimum of 10 count.


CORRECTIONS
Please review the final order upon receipt to be sure there are no corrections needed.  If any corrections are needed, please email a complete list within 72 hours of delivery.


CALLIGRAPHED MAIL
With any handwritten address, the automated postal scanners may have trouble reading the envelope.  Any address that cannot be read by machine is routinely hand-inspected and mailed by the postal employees.
