    What I need on the day:

    I require a flat, sturdy table and comfortable chair and good lighting.

    I will bring calligraphy/engraving items I need with me.

  • Engraving process:

    I begin with a draft of the lettering using a non-permanent pen, before using a battery powered, portable engraving machine with small diamond burr to engrave the lettering before dusting off and filling in with wax pigment, usually gold or silver.

  • Calligraphy process:

    Dip pen (with nib and ink) would be used for smaller paper and card items such as name tags - this option takes time to dry.

    Brush pen would be used for smaller or bigger and takes less time to dry.

    Quick dry marker pen would be used for larger writing on e.g outer packaging.

    All options have great colour ranges.

  • Pricing:

    Live on-site calligraphy £80p/h, minimum 4 hours.

    Live on-site engraving £85p/h, minimum 4 hours.
