Welcome to Ms. Peach Plus Designs! I'm so excited you stopped by!
The teacher in me does NOT want you to suffer from overwhelm, so I've loaded this page with great info and answers to the questions I'm asked most.
Couldn't find the answer to your question below? Head on over to my contact page, and I'll get that question answered!
Who are you?
Nice to meet you, friend! I'm Amanda, the owner of Ms. Peach Plus Designs, and I absolutely love hand lettering and calligraphy. As a child, I would spend hours in the pen aisle, if given the chance. I was obsessed with having beautiful penmanship and having the right pen is everything!
Okay, so, what exactly do you do?
I create fresh, southern, & fun pieces for women and couples using hand lettering and calligraphy. I specialize in wedding and lifestyle signs, but occasionally take on other custom pieces with pleasure.
What's the difference between calligraphy and hand lettering?
Calligraphy is super fancy and requires the use of a calligraphy pen with a nib and ink. You may have also heard of brush calligraphy, which is calligraphy with a brush or brush pen. Hand lettering, also referred to as "faux-ligraphy," is the art of drawing letters and can be done with pretty much any pen or marker.
Oh my goodness! I want to learn how to write pretty! Do you teach classes?
I sure do! Find out more here.

What is the process for ordering custom pieces?
I'm excited to begin working on your order! I want to ensure two things first:
1. We are a good fit for one another.
2. I'm able to provide what you need.
To do this, we'll set up an initial consultation after you've notified me of your interest and I've received your questionnaire responses. We can either chat over the phone or, if you're in Atlanta, let's meet up!
Once we've agreed that this relationship is a go, I'll get your deposit, & we can talk design. I will keep you updated along the way with emails & sneak peeks of your order as it's being created. If you have any questions during this time, I'm here to help.
I will send an invoice about a week prior to pick-up/delivery to be paid before you receive your design. Then you receive your piece(s) and have a wonderful time at your event!
*This process can take anywhere from 4-8 weeks from initial consultation to pick-up/delivery. Please keep this in mind when deciding to order. I try to schedule no more than five wedding/events at one time to ensure a swift turn-around and detailed attention to your project!
What is the process for rentals?
The custom rental process is identical to the custom design process except:
1. Rentals must be returned within 5-7 days of your event. If you know you're not able to return the rentals within that time frame, please make arrangements with me. Otherwise, you will be charged $10 per day after the seventh day.
2. In addition to the design fee, there is a rental fee for each piece that is custom for that piece.
Standard rentals (rentals that are already printed/designed) must be reserved at least two months in advance.
Why is there a rental fee?
When you pay your rental fee, you are reserving your piece(s) and your time on my calendar. Some pieces are more popular than others, so if there is a piece you would like to reserve, try to do so early on.
Your invitation suites are beautiful! Do you still offer that service?
Thank you so much! While I have loved creating beautiful, bespoke invitation suites, I have made the difficult decision to only create them as a part of a fully custom wedding package. This package includes all of my custom wedding services and starts at $3,500. I'm only take three of these packages this year, so if you are interested, please contact me for more information.
I don't live in Atlanta. Would I still be able to work with you?
Absolutely! We can work out the details, but, if you're in the US, we can definitely work together.
