Authentic, Modern Lettering that Celebrates the Everyday Moments

My obsession with hand lettering began in 2015, when I decided to paint a sentimental quote on canvas as a gift for my husband. More heart than talent went into that little project, but it still hangs on our living room wall today. It’s a good reminder that dreams can come true with a little determination + a lot of hard work.

So, with no formal art training, I poured myself into this newfound obsession. I bought books on type, practiced constantly, and spent all my spare money on paper and pens. I had no idea what I was doing, but when I started posting my work on Instagram, I started to get noticed.

The demand for my work increased so much that I ended up working two jobs - a regular 9-5 managing a small store, and then staying up all night fulfilling custom orders that I received via word of mouth and social media.

Being a bit of a coffee snob, I decided to combine my two loves and create handlettered mugs. My designs are authentic, humorous, and remind you to enjoy every moment. Whether it’s the satisfaction of cozying up in a blanket, the honesty of not being able to deal with people, or just enjoying that perfect first sip of steaming hot coffee, my mugs are relatable and beautiful all at once. Just keepin' it real over here, y'all

A year and a half after discovering the art of lettering, I was able to leave my standard job in order to create on Etsy full-time. My Instagram following is over 51,000 strong, and the daily support and feedback from the lettering community and my regular customers keeps me going. I would not be here without them, and I am grateful every single day for them.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

Each design is handlettered and then printed directly onto each mug. Don't scrub or use any abrasive sponge on the design! Use a soft cloth or sponge to wipe your mug inside and out. Hand washing is recomended since some dishwasher detergents don't really get along with the printing ink.
