Pricing


Price and Payment

When commissioning artwork, please feel free to contact me direct by telephone, (+44) 01392 444190 or by email, mail@calligraphyandheraldry.com and I will gladly discuss any commissioning of artwork with you.

Please forward as much information as possible, including images, Arms, blazons, or text, as this will help to give an estimate for the work.

Estimates produced are based on an hourly rate plus materials and complexity of work.

All work produced is based on the information provided before hand and I ensure that the initial rough draft for approval is of suitable quality to avoid changes.

Should further changes to the design rough be required then I allow for one change before a £20 design fee is charged for each change.This fee is subject to change with regards to the commission.

I ensure that the client and myself are satisfied with the design before progressing to final artwork and updates are provided throughout the commission if necessary, helping the client to understand the work in progress. It remains important that each client receives exactly what they wish for and that I am content with the finished design and product.

Every piece of work is very different and costs do vary depending on complexity of design, size and time.

I am very happy to discuss pricing and to create work that suits every budget.

I currently have a lead time scale for new commissions of 3-4 months. Should you be interested please contact me and I will book you in!
