    Eryn - Hi Lindsay! I am wondering what you charge for your custom work…and if it would be possible to create a transparent png file out of words you create for me…basically, I’m thinking of turning my name into a logo, and possibly a few simple hand drawn elements…like a phone, typewriter, heart, etc.

    I would be using it on my photography website, and maybe business stationary. I LOVE your work! ErynReplyCancel

    Kelli - A friend recommended I contact you in regards to my new logo for my photography business. It’s small, it’s just starting out, and I don’t really know what I’m doing. I’d like my name in a more unique font, hand made. I have a drawing that I want to go with it and just haven’t found anything that I love.

    Lynne Payne - Hi Lindsay!!

    I want you to do our wedding invite envelopes and a custom wedding program. The wedding is Sept. 2 2012. Can you do it? It is 110 invites!!

    diane grindahl - I want to stencil a saying on my stairwell wall.
    like branches on a tree,
    we all grow in different directions
    yet our roots remain as one.

    I need the word family to be big and the other words much smaller. The word family would be about 30″ x 15″ and the other words readable from a distance.

    I am not sure how you do things, but what I want is for this to be printed on a piece of paper that I could cut out and use as a stencil.

    Is any of this possible?

    You can see what I mean if you look on – I would like a prettier font than what is shown. I intend to hang my family pictures around the saying (which I would paint the saying in a golden/bronze)after I paint the walls a medium brown.

    Please advise if you think you could put something together for me and how much it costs.ReplyCancel

    Renee Barnett - Hey Lindsay,

    I was wondering how much you would charge for something. I would really love some framed Bible verses, and I LOVE your work. How much would you charge to make one (of course, depending on how long the passage is and how big it is… or whatever… I’m not much of a designer, so you could pretty much have all the creative license).
    Love you! I hope you are doing well.

    Blessings on your day,
    Renee BarnettReplyCancel

    Annette Amdahl - Hey there! I am putting together some wedding invites for my sister’s best friend and I know she’s OBSESSED with your calligraphy. How much would it cost for you to write up ‘Shana & Geoffrey’ in your snazziness (is that a word? i think so…) and quickly high quality scan it to me? I’ll be redrawing it into Adobe Illustrator so I can resize it nicely (i don’t know the final sizes yet) so the scan would be all I’d need.

    Just a quote and time frame…thanks doll!!! *AnnetteReplyCancel

    Belinda Olsen - Lindsay,

    I love your work and talent! I have followed your blog for quite some time drooling over the things you’ve created and what you did for your own wedding. I get crazy excited when I see a new blog post appear in my google reader :) I would like to have two items designed and receive a digital copy of each. The first would be ‘Belinda Olsen’ that I would like to use on my photography website and the second would be ‘Craig & Belinda Olsen’ that I would like to use on personal stationary. I would like to know if you are accepting commissions at this time, pricing and typical timeline.

    If you are not accepting commissions at this time, would you kindly please provide a referral to someone else that you would recommend.

    Thank you for your time,

    Dana Stanley - hello!

    my name is dana stanley, owner of “between sleep and awake” – a videography business.

    i’m in desperate need of some branding, and i love love your work. i decided a long time ago that i wanted a handwritten look for my font/logo, and although i’m (kinda) handy with a fine tip pen, its extremely daunting and out of my realm.
    that’s where you come in!

    long story short i’m interested in your branding package. i’m sure there are many details to iron out, but i figured contacting you was the first step.

    look forward to hearing from you!

    erin - Love your beautiful work! I was wondering if you had any examples of your tattoo lettering. My fiance and I have been looking for the perfect letting for our next tattoo, but no luck so far. Just wondering if you had any samples I could see.

    Also, the 3 options you send over…would they be the same things, just different lettering?

    Look forward to hearing back!


    • July 17, 2012 - 4:28 am

      lindsay - Hi Erin! Thanks! The 3 options would be the same words, with a variation on the handwriting.ReplyCancel

    Jenny Thomas - Hi Lindsay,

    I think we were in touch briefly a few months ago. I am writing with two inquiries.. : )

    First of all, we are doing an adoption party for our son, ideally on September 15th. Is it too late to request an invitation? I can contact people by phone to save the date now, but perhaps that’s not enough lead time to turn around an invitation. Let me know. We’re planning on doing a “Little Man” theme with ties and bow ties, etc.

    Additionally, I am starting a small business on Etsy and would like to find out more about your branding packages. I’m interested in a logo, blog header, business card, etc. Could you let me know what would be included in the $500 package? The name of the Etsy shop is going to be “Acorn Tree Creations.”

    Thank you!

    Janelle Ray - Hi!

    I am working on a bridal shower and I needed some confection cards done. The shower is on September 29th and I wanted to see if you had availability?

    Also, I am working on the brides wedding and was needing some signage for the bar, guest table etc. Also we are going to be painting some old tea trays with chalk paint and using those as the way to escort guest to their tables, how much would it be to get those hand lettered by you. There would be 12 trays (not huge) with ten names a piece. Wedding is November 3rd.

    Thank you! I am just in love with your work and look forward to working with you!
