Any thoughts on how to commission (and price) an ambigram?

As I understand it, ambigrams are words that work both right-side-up and up-side-down. Ambigrams can either be the same word(s) or read differently (depending on the orientation). (BTW, I may not completely understand the concept. It might be a different term than ambigram if the flipped version is the same message or a different message.) Here's a web site that generates ambigrams on the fly.

For Christmas cards this year, I'd like to commission an ambigram that reads Merry Christmas in one orientation and Happy New Year in the other. My first thought is to use fiverr.com.

Another option would be to have both messages included in a figure-ground way, so the "outside" of the letters of the first message would contain the second message in the "inside" letters of the first. Any idea of what this is called?

Would appreciate thoughts from graphic artists and others on a fair price for something like this?

thanks, Todd's keyboard (tried to use an inverted version, but ran into a phorum error)

Not really adding much here, but I found one that seems like what you want:

Merry Christmas


Happy New Year 2010


A bit hard to read IMO.
