Calligraphy is handwritten, this is what gives it its magic! Please note there will be slight letterform/script and placement variances throughout. 

Michaela McBride Calligraphy is the artist and has creative freedom over the project, within the guidelines of the client.

We do our best to accommodate your desired wording and layout, however may make changes as necessary, where required.


Screen vs. Print

We do our best to display all products and materials as accurately as possible. However, please keep in mind, what you see on a screen may be slightly varied to the finished product. 



Our handmade papers are made by hand which means there may be minor size, colour variations between pieces. Our letterpress printing process features matte inks that are hand-mixed, slight variances in ink colour are likely.



During the proposals process we will outline the timeline and set a completion date. On the rare occasion that we should require to change or extend these dates, you will be notified immediately. It is important to consider that design revisions and/or delays in feedback may affect the timeline and potentially delay your order.

A 30% deposit is required before project will be started. With the remainder due at the end of production.
