Heart Craft Calligraphy Ordering Information
Thank you for considering an order at Heart Craft Calligraphy. We are fortunate that there are many talented calligraphers offering their services in today’s fast-paced world. Here at Heart Craft Calligraphy, there’s a focus on slowing down. I’m spending very few hours online, and it may take a little extra time to get back to you. You may call and leave a message at (207) 276-8061 in addition to sending an e-mail inquiry.
Hand-lettered calligraphy and design at Heart Craft Calligraphy takes a considerable amount of time and attention to detail. Everything is created with loving care and mindfulness with a focus on keeping this hand-made art alive in our technological age.
Hourly rate is $135/hour. * In addition to the hourly rate and materials costs, there is set-up charge of $35, no matter what the size of the piece. Short quotes (3-5 lines) range $100-$150. Table Names, Place Cards and Envelope addressing range $1-$5 per item. A minimum of 3 weeks lead time is requested. Occasionally, there is a 4-6 week turnaround time. I may be able to accommodate with less time, but a rush charge (minimum $40.00) will be applied. The Minimum Service order is $45.00, which includes the $35 Set-up Charge.
Where the Money Goes
Our family is committed to supporting local economies and sustainable businesses. We are dedicated to “conscious consumption” in all of our purchasing. We support many local, organic farmers; we bank and shop at the smaller, local businesses primarily; and we take into account “cradle to grave” purchasing. In addition, a percentage of all our earnings is donated, and our family volunteers often as well.
As a patron of Heart Craft Calligraphy, your support ripples out far and wide, allowing more time for meaningful work in a hurrying world.
Thank you for your choice to support this small business.
* A sliding-scale rate for non-profits and special circumstances may be available, please inquire. In addition, bartering, trade, and service exchanges, as well as donations are welcome for consideration.
