How do you get the script to have such a varied line?

Well, not exactly magic, but pretty close!
The pen I use to address your envelopes is nearly 150 years old, yet still going strong! Some pens of that era had 14 karat gold nibs which allowed for great flexibility in lineweight. They can create a fine line almost impossible to see to one about a quarter inch in thickness. I control the line weight by applying pressure on the downstroke, but the pen does most of the work! Like magic.

Why do you do design work for weddings rather than for big business?
Designing for big business is designing for the very lowest common denominator. You need to please everone in the board room to start with. Compromises will need to be made and soon a good idea turns to mush. The company, too, is looking to have everyone on the planet understand and buy the product they are trying to sell. The design I'd need to come up with, then, would need to be understood by the dimmest bulb.

How much will it cost?
That's a good question, and a very hard one to answer. Since most of the maps, monograms, and invitation design is done from scratch, and since every client has their own personal tastes and needs it is hard to come up with a simple answer, or even a simple formula for estimating the cost. Sometimes the simpler-looking designs take longer, and therefore might cost more than one that looks more complex.

What about the printing?
The invitation or map can be produced a number of ways. I can send you the digital files which you can bring to your professonal printer to have offset printed, engraved, or letterpressed. You can also print them yourself from your own computer. If your invitation design is anything other than the standard 8.5 by 11 inch piece of paper I'd not recommend you printing them yourself.
