Last time I checked....

Journeyman calligraphers can ask $10.50 a coulmn inch.
Master callicraphers can ask $15+ a coulmn inch.

It really depends on what you think your work is worth based on what they are willing to pay, and how much you value your hands. Scribal arts require a different set of muscles and motor skills than regular writing. I can typically only do Calligraphy for about an hour before I have to stop and rest my hands for about 2 hours. Arthritis sucks.

However, I would encourage anyone who wants to learn the scribal arts to do so. Calligraphy is actually very easy to learn, if you can hold a pen and write you can do calligraphy.
