You've done a few client projects...

...and you've been told your work is beautiful. You're serious about starting a calligraphy business on the side, but you don't know where to start and you have a ton of questions.

How Do You Find The Right Clients?

You know, the ones who won't ghost you after you've put so much time and thought into creating their custom quote.

How Should You Price Your Work?

What's fair? What are you worth? How do you quote large projects like signage, or complex projects like stationery?

How Do You Manage Your Time?

Especially if you have kids or a full-time job, you need the right systems in place to save you from overwhelm.

What would it be worth...

 

To have a system that brings quality clients to you? No more posting to Instagram in desperation or feeling rejected when you don't get a response from a potential client.

To have prices that make you feel valued? Imagine actually enjoying those nights and weekends of envelope addressing because you're getting paid a fair price.

To have a clear process for managing your schedule? Stop double- (or triple-) booking yourself and stressing out about finishing your projects. Imagine scheduling time to rest, recharge, or develop and practice new skills.

To have legal policies and contracts that let you sleep at night? We've all been there. That client relationship that started out well, but quickly goes downhill. What if you had the right legal protections in place to prevent you from losing time, money, and your sanity?

To have a business that makes you happy? Imagine that your business gave you the joy of creating art for others, and gave you enough income to take vacations, pay down debt, buy a house, or even quit your day job.

Week 1: Lettering Legally

Instructor: Christina Scalera

Should your business be a sole proprietorship? An LLC? Something else? What are the benefits and drawbacks of each? You'll learn how to find the information you need based on your location and how to use contracts, copyrights, and trademarks to protect yourself and your creative work. (Three sample contracts included!)

Week 2: Setup, Systems, and Pricing

Instructors: Laura Hooper and Alyssa Hooper

You'll learn how to set up your space, whether it's at home or in a studio. What tools should you keep on hand, and which ones can you purchase as-needed? What systems do you need to run your business? Learn how to manage your time and how to price your work fairly so that you'll stay sane, love your job, and make a profit. (Includes pricing for large format or unique projects!)

Week 3: Managing Your Clients

Instructors: Laura Hooper and Alyssa Hooper

Discover Laura Hooper Calligraphy's complete client intake process for envelope calligraphy, full stationery orders, and day-of items. What's a typical timeline for each type of job? What are appropriate client response times? When and how do you say no to a client? Learn how to set fair boundaries and expectations with your clients and how to automate your communication so you'll have more time for the creative stuff.

Week 4: Finding Quality Clients

Instructors: Laura Hooper and Alyssa Hooper

Laura and Alyssa answer the all-important question: how do you find clients? You'll discover when to use paid vs. free marketing, what to include on your website, and how to stand out in a crowded industry. How do you get involved with photo shoots? When shouldn't you work for free? Learn how to network so you can attract clients that love your work and appreciate your time.

Week 5: Growing Your Business

Instructors: Laura Hooper and Alyssa Hooper

Alright, you're ready to grow! How do you set up an online shop? How do you pack and ship physical products? You'll discover how and when to bring on additional staff, and which tasks you should delegate to operate a successful business that doesn't stress you out - because you can do anything, but you can't do everything.

Week 6: All About Printing

Instructor: Ashley Buzzy

Even if you don't offer printing, it's useful to understand it when you're creating work for clients that will eventually be printed. You'll learn about the different printing methods, paper types, and how to find a great printer to work with so you can create high quality work for your clients and expand your menu of services.

"I feel confident about pricing and really good about the steps I've taken to treat my business as a business. I'm in the midst of buttoning up my order forms/contracts so that they work for me and I don't feel like I'm questioning whether I'm leaving something out anymore. I had been putting off reaching out to local venues and others in the wedding industry (probably out of fear) and this bootcamp inspired me to go for it. I'm happy to have all of the content and a framework for how to continue forward. Also, the bloopers! :)"
