Invitations generated on a computer
Most casual invitations can be generated on a computer. These personal invitations can be created using computer fonts or scanned calligraphy, and photos and images, drawings, standard designs or custom motifs converted to a jpeg or gif format. Stock papers for these types of invitations are available at retail stores and copy shops.
For those who want a little more than standard fonts, we offer calligraphy and some drawing and design work, in original form or converted to electronic files. The electronic files are provided to you in jpeg format for easy placement within your document.
Raised Printing: Thermographic invitations
Finer paper stock and raised printing (thermography) reflect a different type of event than a casual invitation does. These invitations are ordered from a thermographer’s distributor. There is a wide selection of thermographer’s fonts, designs and monograms available. Often, a proof of your invitation is available for your review before it is printed. Addionally, there is an online feature to preview your wording in selected fonts.
Dogbones Network offers calligraphy that can be provided to the thermographer and will be printed in raised letters.
Send us an email or complete this form to explain what calligraphy or custom drawing or design work you would like done… first names, monogram, invitation, invitation ensemble (invitation, return address, reception card, response card, response envelope), directions, place cards, programs, etc.

After we have an idea of your preferences of calligraphy within your invitation and celebration, we can give you a proposal for your work As an example, calligraphy for an invitation ensemble done in the italic hand will be $125.
