Be kind to your calligrapher:
Select your stationery with pen and ink in mind if you are hiring a calligrapher. Some paper surfaces do not enable certain pen nibs and inks. If there is a certain script you desire, take a sample to your calligrapher to verify that it matches the tools required to write that “hand.” And plan on choosing a w-i-d-e envelope for your invitations if you are inviting many people who live in locations with l-o-n-g names, such as Washington, D.C. Formal addresses necessitate additional space to spell out everything.
