My love for handlettering started in middle school and I started lettering on anything I could find! Then in 2018, Written by Maria first “started” with no intentions of actually opening up a biz. Once I attended my first crafters market, that’s when it started developing into more than just a hobby.  

Back in 2015, I started at my hometown market in Central Illinois selling only handlettered pallet wood signs. Three years later, I started social media and decided to take my lettering to other products-- stickers and cards. 

I had a scary (and very exciting) purchase in 2020---- meet my laser machine (a.k.a. "Luna"). {see picture below}

Purchasing the laser has allowed me to expand my product offerings. I have transitioned into creating laser cut signs, charcuterie boards, keychains + more!

From there, it's grown in a way I'd never imagined. I am so blessed with amazing customers who support this dream of mine.

What a wild ride this has been, but forever so thankful for this space🤍 Today, I'm here to serve YOU! My hope is that through my lettering, I can inspire, motivate, and encourage you in your everyday life.

I'm always a message away!

Cheering you on! ---MARIA
