Place Card Calligraphy

Parties, Weddings, Fund Raisers, Galas and even intimate dinners all require proper place cards for your formal and informal guests. You wouldn’t want your guests burdened with the task of findimg a seat at a party, instead, they should have time to mingle with friends and acquaintances. Hence, the place card is a key component to planning a lavish or an intimate affaire. The place card has a functional role as well as a decorative one in a party/event setting. Here are some custom place cards we have worked on at Hyegraph. All of these custom place cards and the table card were printed by Jacques using the Hyegraph Digital Calligraphy.

How to place Wedding Invitations and Calligraphy Orders at Hyegraph San Francisco

Our customers that come into Hyegraph often ask if in addition to wedding invitations we also print place cards, menus and table names and numbers. We assure the client that we do indeed design and print elegant place cards menus and table names and numbers using our Digital Calligraphy Service. They also inquire about price, selection and turn-around time. Hence, we further explain to our brides and grooms that once they pick out their wedding stationery we then can proceed with the rest of their place cards, menus and even addressing their envelopes with our Digital Calligraphy. Once our customer is confident that we can help them with all their wedding stationery requests, they then go through our wedding invitation examples in our store located at 3 Embarcadero Center in San Francisco, CA.


Wedding Invitation Envelope Calligraphy Addressing “Waterford” Font Style

At Hyegraph we showcase 80 different stationery producers, therefore we have the largest selection of wedding invitations in the San Francisco Bay Area. We have created custom wedding invitations using the following stationery designers: Checkerboard, Oblations, Envelopments, Twig & Fig, Crane & Co., William Arthur, Carlson Craft, Birchcraft, McPhersons, Tatex and more.

In addition to creating unique wedding invitations we’ve have also designed Save the Dates and Wedding Invites using Letterpress and Engraved Printing. Our Engraved and Letterpress Producers include: Lemon Tree Stationery, Copper Willow Press, Arzberger Engravers, Abby Jean Letterpess, Elum Letterpress and Dauphine Press.

Once our client chooses her wedding invitations and/or save the dates with her wedding theme and colors we help our couple on the wording and have them email us the final draft. We recommend using our Wedding Wording Guide to help you choose the right wording. Once we receive our client’s wording we then proceed to process the order with our printing company and produce a proof working with our printers making sure the design, quality and wording all work with the overall invitation. We then forward the company proof to our client and wait for them to approve the proof so that we may then proceed with the order process.

Most wedding invitation printing, once the client has approved the proof and order, takes roughly 2 weeks. However, for engraved, letterpress and highly custom printing this process could take up to 4 weeks. Once we receive the printed invitations and envelopes from our company we inform our client and ask them to pick up their completed and printed wedding invitations, wedding menus, rsvps, thank you and any other stationery products they may have ordered. We always check to make sure the final product has turned out in the best quality before we hand them off to our customers.

Once our client picks up their invitations they may ask for us to address the envelopes with our elegant calligraphy. We then ask them to pick out their favorite font style from our calligraphy samples or we can match the calligraphy font to their wedding invitations. They can also pick out a color in addition to black or we can match their wedding ink color if it’s another color than black ink.

Placing calligraphy orders is easy and painless at Hyegraph! Our client simply needs to email us their wedding guest list, pick out their favorite font style and leave their envelopes with us or mail them to our address at 3 Embarcadero Center, San Francisco, CA. You can use our Envelope Addressing Etiquette Guide when writing your addresses. You can find more detailed ordering instructions on our Calligraphy Page.

We can have most calligraphy orders printed and ready to be picked up in 2 to 3 days. Once the envelopes are addressed with our elegant calligraphy then our clients are ready to pick up their envelopes, stuff their envelopes with their wedding invitations, response cards, maps, accommodations cars and any other stationery pertinent to the event. Our wedding couple is now ready to stamp and mail off their high quality, personalized invitations at the post office to their wedding guests. Of course we recommend keeping some extras for yourselves and we also like to keep a copy of the invitation for our records.

We hope the wedding planning process is a fun one for you and we are here to help you with the planning process with all of your stationery needs. Please Call, Email or Stop by our store in San Francisco, CA.

Sincerely, Jacques/Owner/Hyegraph Invitations & Calligraphy
