For example, who bears the risk of loss if your seating chart cracks on the way to the venue? What happens if the post office can’t read an envelope? What if a bride changes their mind on ink color? What about overruns? Honestly, this is one of my most comprehensive service provider templates- not just because I’ve taken a few calligraphy classes, but because I’ve actually owned a full-fledged calligraphy business.
This contract is designed to protect your business in any type of calligraphy project: wedding, a custom project, etc. Each contract comes with directions for use, and provisions that will protect your business now and in the future.
*please note: this contract overlaps greatly with our Custom Stationery Agreement.
What’s the difference? This template is drafted more with the calligrapher or hand letterer in mind, rather than a stationery/print/paper company.
If you are both a stationer AND a calligrapher, the calligraphy agreement is the appropriate choice, as it has more provisions that you can simply remove, if they do not fit that specific project. It’s always easier to remove provisions than add them, and the calligraphy agreement is written to be more inclusive than the stationery agreement. We define “stationer” as someone who prints invitation suites, other paper goods, etc, that you yourself are not hand writing, while a calligrapher is potentially doing both, but also offers hand-written services.
