Hi! I’m Shannon, letterer, sign maker, doer-of-all-the-things at Wright Lettering. I’m a self-taught modern lettering artist based in the State College area. I love being able to make the pretty things that make an event special, a great present, or become a talking point in your house.
Wright Lettering specializes in hand lettered signs and other items for your special day. I offer a number of different lettering services for weddings and the events surrounding them, like bridal showers and engagement parties. I primarily offer sign rentals in the State College and surrounding Central PA region. Rental pricing includes both the sign rental and custom lettering on the signs. However, I also offer signs for purchase or have an hourly rate if you just need lettering on signs you have or on-site. My website goes into more detail about each of the services and has pictures of the signs in my rental inventory. My Facebook or Instagram are good places to see my lettering style and other signs I've done.
A bit more about me: In school, I was always the kid sitting in the back of the class so they could doodle in the margins without getting caught, writing their friends names in cute ways, convincing the teacher to let them make a poster instead of writing a paper, and making bright colorful study guides (highly recommended for an A).
I started selling hand-painted glassware as a creative side job in 2012. While experimenting one day, I painted “good morning beautiful” and “good morning handsome” coffee mugs and my obsession with lettering was born.
When my husband Kyle and I got married in 2015, I designed and lettered a large set of chalkboards for our wedding. I spent hours on those chalkboards, but loved every.single.minute.
I’ve lived in State College, PA, all my life with the exception of two years during grad school in Charleston, SC. That time away made me fall in love with the change of seasons, a long drive down a back road and rolling farmland with a clear blue sky in the background.
My trusty assistant is our rescue dog Ace (I’m sure you’ll hear him when you pick up your order *insert eye roll here*).
My non-lettering self loves old architecture, interior design, and DIY projects. On the weekend, you can probably find us checking out a local brewery, hiking in the woods, or working on the never ending projects around our house.
