Song Lyrics, Poetry, Book/Film Excerpts

for birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, or just because...

Long Form Calligraphy:
base price $.50 per word plus $40 setup/design fee for standard options. Standard options are white or cream paper with black or sepia ink. Song lyrics and poetry are usually centered, while book and film excerpts are aligned left. However, I can work with whatever formatting is preferred.

These are highly customizable in nature, depending on word count I can advise on best paper size. Most custom orders are 5x7", 8.5x11", 11x14", 14x17", 16x20", but I can work with any size.

  • For larger paper sizes: +$5 sizes larger than 8.5x11", +$15 for 14x17" and up
  • Additional options (addt'l cost): colored paper, handmade paper, gold embellishments, extra flourishing, special formatting, ink splatters, watercolor, etc.
  • Custom ink color/metallic ink/color matching: $15 one-time charge
  • Depending on availability, rush orders may be accommodated. Rush fees apply.
  • A 50% deposit is required to confirm your place on the calendar
