commissions 

Many of our Fellows accept commissions and are willing to be contacted when you are looking for a calligrapher to create a special piece of work.

Whether it’s envelope addressing, wedding invitations, a family tree, a poem or a piece of heraldry, there will be a calligrapher who has the skills to produce your commission.

We suggest you look at the list of CLAS Fellows and contact them directly. We are aiming to release a wider list of calligraphers, letterers and illuminators available to take commissions before the end of the year. This will give you an expanded choice and the ability to select from artists available in your area.

Do have as much information as possible available to give to your calligrapher as to the type of work you want done.

Always get a quote for the job and remember that if you want colour and gold, illustration or heraldry this will always take longer and cost more.

Calligraphers tend to get busy, particularly during certain times of the year.  They will need time to prepare and execute your commission so please ensure they have sufficient time to do so.
