Prices for Quaker Wedding Certificates

 All certificates include your text and decoration, a lightly penciled grid for your guest's signatures, 2 pens for them to use (the ink is light-fast, waterproof and non-acidic) and a kneadable eraser with which to erase the grid later. I use acid-free paper and pigment-based, lightfast, archival ink for the lettering, and the finest watercolors for the decoration.

 I usually save my drawings of flowers from each certificate. If I am able to reuse a drawing then the cost will be less. Certificates like the William Blake trees, Craftsman, and Frank Lloyd Wright borders are standards and already priced at a discount.

I do not need a deposit but I will require payment when I start on the final version of your certificate. I will e-mail you a few days before hand. I usually have some questions for you and will send you an email with a photo of a practice or mock up of your certificate. At that time I will confirm your final price and you may send your check. We also have a PayPal option if you prefer.

 Your options and what you get:

Done completely by hand......Your text hand lettered, your choice of decoration hand painted in watercolors, signature lines drawn in pencil, the archival pens and kneadable eraser (used to erase pencil lines later).

Computer printed decoration and hand lettered text....Your text hand lettered, decoration of your choice from samples on our website and printed, signature lines drawn in pencil, the archival pens and kneadable eraser.

Computer printed text and hand painted decoration....Your text printed in your choice of fonts, decoration of your choice hand painted, signature lines drawn in pencil, the archival pens and kneadable eraser.

Computer printed decoration and text....Your text printed in your choice of fonts, decoration of your choice from samples on our website and printed, signature lines drawn in pencil, the archival pens and kneadable eraser.

Our standard price for prints, or part print and part hand done, is based on your choice of one of the decorations on the Computer Aided Decoration page, or one of the certificates from our website that we are able to print with your text. If you want decorative elements from two or three different certificates put together for your certificate, there will be a "cut and paste" charge of $50. We can put the elements together in PhotoShop to create the decoration you want, however this does take extra time to create.

SHIPPING COSTS

I can usually ship to you anywhere in the United States with my carrier in about three days after completion.......East of the Rockies....$20.00

If you live in California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Nevada, Utah or Arizona, three day shipping is by air and costs more, I will give you an estimate when you send your address.

 

Overnight shipping is available at your request and cost depends on distance from Ohio...I will send you an estimate.

Shipping to Canada is slightly more. I have shipped over seas but it is expensive. In either case contact me and I will get an estimate for you.

PAPERS

See the true shades and feel the quality of the papers I use.

Email me for paper samples... I have white, off-white, champagne, and ivory.

Please note some of our certificate samples were done on parchment paper. Because lettering ink sometimes spreads out on this paper, it make the calligraphy look too thick or "fuzzy." We no longer offer the parchment paper.
