Use Retro-Styled Lettering To Create A Custom Vintage Sign


Do you love vintage signs as much as we do? Well, guess what — now you can make your own!

In our new class, VINTAGE SIGN LETTERING, you’ll learn how to use different lettering styles and embellishments to design a layout that has a vintage sign vibe. Plus, you’ll be learning from professional lettering artist, Annica Lydenberg, who will guide you through each lesson.

Once you learn her tips and tricks, you’ll be on your way to making all kinds of vintage lettering designs for your home and workspace! By the end of our VINTAGE SIGN LETTERING class, you’ll know how to:

  1. Design a layout that follows the principles of composition
  2. Combine san serif and script letters and add embellishments to your design
  3. Transfer your layout to an actual board to really get that vintage sign vibe

You’ll go from sketches…


… to an awesome signboard that you’ll be proud to display in your home or workspace!


Plus, you’ll be learning from a professional lettering artist. Annica was trained in typeface design and sign painting, so trust us when we say you’ll be in good hands. And if you can’t tell, her artwork is inspired by traditional show card writing, ’90s hip-hop, and her love of puns and wordplay. Right up our alley!

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
