Welcome to my little shop of letters!

Thanks for stopping by! Although I opened this shop in 2010, I didn't actually start selling until just recently, so I'm really excited to see how this will work and to connect with people far and wide.

In addition to envelope addressing, I create place cards, signage, and seating charts on mirrors, chalkboards and all sorts of random surfaces! If you've got an idea, let's bring it to fruition!

When I'm not lettering, I'm playing beach volleyball, hiking in our local mountains or spending quality time with family and friends.

Frequently asked questions
ENVELOPE ADDRESSING: How can I send my guest list to you?

Names/Addresses should be typed exactly as you would like them written on the envelopes/place cards/escort cards, etc. - a separate line must be included for inner envelopes. If for envelope addressing, the format should match the format style on the envelopes selected. A guest list template can be downloaded from my website:

Use initial caps (not all caps)

Send your list in excel or word via email - NO HARD COPIES, please

Changes to the list must be emailed or written - no verbal changes will be accepted

Please do not resend the list once you have sent it. All changes should be written in the body of an email.

ENVELOPE ADDRESSING: How can I send my materials (envelopes, place cards, etc.) to you?

Materials can be shipped via USPS. A ship to address will be provided after payment has been received. Please let me know when the materials will be delivered and what method of shipping/delivery you will use. A tracking number is always recommended. Please send the tracking number to me as soon as you have it.

If materials are being shipped directly to me from a printer, please let me know and I will provide a physical address for FedEx or UPS.

Please provide 10% additional materials in case of additions, changes or errors.

Upon completion of your project, a small portion of leftover materials will not be returned in case of additions, changes or errors - this saves on postage back and forth.

ENVELOPE ADDRESSING: Can you help me with Addressing Etiquette?

Standard etiquette samples can be viewed at Most everything is spelled-out - See below for examples:

- and Guest, and Family
- numbered streets to 12 (e.g., Twelfth Street)
- Doctor and Reverend on outer; Dr. and Rev. on inner (Outer: Doctor is for medical; Dr. is for Ph.D)
- Directions E. W. N. S.

Remain abbreviated
- Directions SW, SE, NW, NE
- Jr., Sr., II, III

- Apt and # will become "Unit"
- Esquire is not ever used on outer envelopes; Esq. on inner
- expanded zip codes are not ever used (e.g., 90017-0045); last 4 digits are deleted

If you have selected an addressing style that is not standard, use the style shown on the envelope that you have chosen when typing your guest list.

ENVELOPE ADDRESSING: What is considered "standard" addressing?

Standard addressing is "Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Jones" and does not include middle names or spouse's name. "Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Jones" is one name and one name per envelope is standard. Atypical addressing increases turnaround time and is subject to additional pricing.

Orders with 10 or more International addresses (5+ lines) are subject to additional pricing.

ENVELOPE ADDRESSING: What ink colors do you offer and is there additional charge?

We have many colors from which to choose, including metallics and pastels. Please ask us. Ink color does not affect pricing. There is no additional charge for metallic or pastel-colored ink. Customer must specify ink color at time of order placement.

ALL ORDERS: How will you ship final products to me?

We ship via USPS, FedEx Home Delivery or UPS. We currently only ship orders within the USA.
 Please estimate 3 - 7 business days for delivery. If you would like your materials sooner, please let us know what type of shipping you would like and we will send an estimate. If you have your own FedEx or UPS account, you may provide a waybill to us to be used for your shipping.

If you are in the Los Angeles area, local pick-up can be arranged.


At this time we only accept payments made through Etsy.

 All payments must be received prior to project commencement.
