I love it think it's cute. But I thought the letters for the weight, length,etc would be black. Just like it was pictured.

Communication with seller took awhile at times, but the end product is well worth the wait. These look AMAZING in my son's room. I still stare at the wall as I walk past, and he loves his new wall! Nice quality, not too heavy to hang easily and the painting is perfect.

Absolutely beautiful! There was a couple weird stains on it but I think it will be fine once we stain it. Again absolutely beautiful

Overall I like the name sign very much. The seller was able to create exactly what I wanted. The colors are beautiful. I deducted a star because the item arrived with a few smear marks that I am not able to fix myself without compromising the paint job and it’s too much of a pain to have to ship it back to the owner.

Beautiful workmanship, one of a kind decor. Can't wait to decorate our baby room with more pieces from this shop.
The Fairy Paintbox Story
Emily Curran has been painting since she was a tiny human child, under the tutelage of her mother, a lifelong painter and MICA graduate. Curran, who also lived and breathed reading and writing, majored in English at Penn State University and painted murals on the side, to pay for books and tuition. For Curran's very last class at Penn State, she took a Business Writing and Design course that focused on font, website, manual and business plan design. This course inspired her to take her then part-time mural painting service in an entirely new direction. With some guidance from her Business Writing and Design professor, she found herself incorporating her English degree into the art business. She merged her new love of fonts, lettering design and website design into the business, transforming what once was a part-time job into a full-time home-based business with an online storefront and customers worldwide.
Curran currently partners with a wood shop and talented carpenters to help bring her font and shape designs to her studio tables. Over the last decade, Curran has become a leading supplier of hand painted kids' room decor, wood alphabet letters around the world.
With myriad wood letter fonts, sizes and thicknesses to choose from, her wood alphabet letters and wood wall art products offer limitless possibilities to the customer. As a mother of 5 and a lifelong artist, she's developed her talent for recognizing and creating imaginative and kid-friendly colors and decor designs while providing a level of quality and craftsmanship that goes unmatched.
Emily's art has been featured in the Maryland State Art Anthology and has won awards for her nature-inspired paintings. Her art has recently been featured in The Baltimore Sun's Baltimore At Home Magazine as well as on MTV Music Television as well as numerous Delaware publications.

Frequently asked questions
Pricing on Painted Nursery Letters
Unless sold as a set or a finished sign, painted nursery letters are priced per individual letter, not per name. Since every name is spelled differently, with different numbers of letters, we must charge per letter. Connected letters are also priced per letter, not per name.
Painted Nursery Letters are priced based on the maximum height of the letters in your name or word on most fonts, usually an uppercase letter. Lowercase letters are proportioned and may not be the same height as the tallest letter in your name/word. When ordering 10 inch letters, for instance, all smaller lowercase letters are still considered 10 inch letters. We are happy to send measurement details on your custom name or word.
Most of our fonts are sized by the tallest letter in your name or word, unless otherwise stated in the listing.
