Hand lettered and heartwarming.

Hey, y'all! I'm Sydney, proprietor of this patch of Etsy.

Lucy + Fay is named for my two grandmothers, who I spent a lot of time with growing up. My love for paper products started young. I have clear memories of pecking away at my grandmother’s typewriter and scribbling on old wide-ruled notebooks with my other grandmother. As an adult, I treasure every piece of mail I get from my grandmothers. Seeing their neat cursive fill the page is so much more fulfilling than getting an email. I've also been a writer my entire life – so it makes sense that handwriting is also a passion of mine. Taking up calligraphy and hand lettering was the fulfillment of a dream of mine, and seeing other people take joy in my work and the things I create is so gratifying.


I'd love for you to be a part of the Lucy + Fay community. Below are the social media links where we can discuss hand lettering, paper goods, our favorite snow cone flavors and whether you prefer stripes or polka dots.

Howdy! Welcome to my little patch of Etsy. My name's Sydney, and I'm pretty pumped that you're here.

My shop, Lucy + Fay, is named for my two grandmothers, who instilled in me a love of neat cursive, typewriters, and paper goods in general. I would sit on the floor and doodle on reams of cheap copy paper, draft novels on yellow legal pads and send letters to my grandfather in the next room on stationery. They sent me boxes of cards when I went away to school, and I have kept all of them. Paper and what's on it is important.

Now, I'm in the business of bringing that joy to you. So buy some cards, or even an art print to pretty up your walls.
