May we use this as a sample?

Another consideration, when negotiating a contract with a calligrapher, is whether you wish to let your calligrapher use your invitation or other piece as a sample.  Most people are flattered to be asked. Sometimes their invitation or seating scrolls ends up on a magazine cover, or our website, and the client is thrilled.  Other clients decline. We never ask why, we just respect their wishes, and understand.   Not all calligraphers ask beforehand, however. Your calligrapher may assume they can use whatever they wish as a sample. So, my advice is to get this information up front.  If you are at all concerned,  then have a sentence added to your contract.
