- You may not have realized that there were still people out there that practice the ancient art of calligraphy. And now you have to find a few that do it and do it well. We suggest that you start your search by talking to your friends, family, and coworkers. See if any of them have hired a calligrapher and if their experience was a good one. Keep track of any candidates that you hear really good things about. Also, tap into the power of the world wide web. Do a Google search for “calligraphers in the Miami area.” This will give you a number of websites to peruse. Your best bet is to look at their online portfolio and evaluate the work they have done and decide whether you can see them working on your invitations. Your wedding vendors that you have already hired can also be a potential source. Ask them if they are familiar with any calligraphers that they believe you should check out. By now, you should have a fairly decent working list. Start making some calls and setting up some interviews.
- At each interview, you need to discuss how much experience the candidate has doing calligraphy. Keep in mind that someone might have talent but that doesn't mean that they have honed their craft. There is definitely something to be said for years of experience. Their portfolio of past work will tell a tale so check it out in depth. How long will it take to receive your finished invitations and envelopes? Do they have a library of letter sets for you to choose from? Provide them with the number that you will need made out. Based on this number, how much will their services cost you? Do they accept rush orders? Do they also provide services like stamping, sealing, and stuffing envelopes. We highly suggest you avail yourself of these if offered. What if they make mistakes which is going to happen? Do they redo the invitations for free? The answer should be yes. Do a side by side comparison of all of the candidates that you interviewed. This will help you make your final choice.
