Song Lyrics, Poetry, Book Excerpts

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

Long Form Calligraphy:
starts at $.50 per word + $40 setup/design fee for standard options. Song lyrics and poetry are usually centered, while book 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", +$10 for 14x17" and up
  • Standard options are white or cream paper with black or sepia ink
  • 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


*All projects will be quoted on a per project basis due to the customizable nature of each project. The rates are provided as a guideline. All calligraphy is done by hand with nib and ink.*
