Custom calligraphy can be ordered for your wedding invitations or wedding programs from Wiregrass Weddings. We work closely with two different calligraphers to create the artwork, then we convert it to a format that can be sent off and printed in thermography, offset or engraving. We can also print it in-house using our letterpress or thermal wax. The wedding invitation shown on the right in this picture features custom calligraphy that was printed on a flat ecru card in thermography, which results in a raised ink finish much like engraving, but much less expensive than engraving.
For the wedding programs on the left, we used the same artwork from the invitation and pulled out the couple’s name, so there wouldn’t be another charge from the calligrapher. Then, we selected complimentary fonts for the rest of the text. These were printed in-house on our thermal wax printer, which is the most economical process of printing that we offer. There is no additional charge for multiple ink colors when you print on the thermal wax printers and you can print full color pictures too (not an option on letterpress, thermography or engraving). The calligraphy artwork itself is $150 – $200 for wedding invitations, depending on how long it takes the calligrapher. If you wanted just your names for the wedding programs, it would be about $75.
