St Cuthbert’s House offers a full range of scribing services  -  inscribing names on certificates, invitations, bookplates, memorial books  etc.    I usually charge an hourly rate  of £15.00 per hour (as advised by LCSI - Lincolnshire Creative solutions Initiative) .   I can offer an estimate  of costs prior to commencing work.  

For folk who prefer a piece rate, it works out at :

£2.00 per invitation  (full names of up to two people)

£1.25  per  place setting (full name)

Table plan: £45.00 + £1.00 per name

£2.50 per certificate (full name & date)


Coloured inks are available, and a range of simple hands (calligrapher’s technical term for  a scribed font) - you can  browse the website to find a script style that you like.

Decorative capitals and  more complex hands (Copperplate , for instance, requires extensive set up) are also available though they may incur an extra fee.

Discounts may be available for larger quantities, and for scribing work on SCH products.
