About Melanie Jane Studio

I left the south to follow my dreams of being a writer to New England. Twelve years and a BFA in Writing, Literature, and Publishing later, I’m still in New England, but my passion for communication has shifted to graphic design and illustration.

I manage a team of production editors at O’Reilly Media, where I am a jane of all trades: hands-on book production; hiring freelance copy editors, proofreaders, and indexers; technical illustration; and baking cakes and designing cards for colleagues.

In my free time, I screenprint cheeky apparel, design wedding invitations, and stick hand lettered designs onto mugs. I am a lover of learning, bright colors, imperfect lines, and rich sumi ink.

    My love language has always been making, from handmade cards for my parents as a kid to homemade cookies for my friends in college. In my free time, I can be found lettering and illustrating in my home in Arlington, MA.

I am a hand letterer, illustrator, and designer based in Arlington, MA. I love bright colors, wobbly lines, and texture. I believe in writing letters, drawing as meditation, and that early morning is the best time of day.

Returns and exchange details
All orders are final. Thanks for understanding!
I accept PayPal and credit card payments. Payment is due within five days of purchase and your order will not be shipped until payment confirmation.
Right now, I can ship to you wherever you are! If you don't see your location in the shipping section of a listing, please contact me to work out those specifics.

For smaller items, I use USPS First Class mailing system, which doesn't come with a tracking number. I will notify you when your order has shipped. Once shipped, packages typically take 2-4 business days in the US and 7-10 days in other countries. For larger items (like mugs), I use USPS Priority Mail, which does come with a tracking number. You'll receive the tracking number with shipping notification.

Please check (and double-check!) that the address you provide is accurate, as I am not responsible for items shipped to the wrong address. I am also not responsible for lost packages and am not able to provide refunds for lost packages. If a package is returned to me for any reason, you will be responsible for paying additional shipping fees to resend to the correct address.

If you are ordering this item as a gift and need it shipped to an address different from your own, send me a message. I can also include a short note for these items.
