That's what I'm assuming---- I just googled a calligraphy shop and there were some samples where they did the entire wording for the invitation. I would definitely think that would run a minimum of 2.25 just because I know from experience that hand-calligraphy would take at least 15 minutes per envelope.
I just planned on doing my own envelopes because even thinking of doing 50 of the invitation wording is enough to make my hand go into convulsions from arthritis!
I never really mimicked different fonts---- I got into it because in junior high art class, our teacher was making us do calligraphy and I hated the way the normal calligraphy looked---- so I started just using variations on my own handwriting and the teacher freaked out about good it looked.... started putting it into exhibitions, display cases, etc....
