40 Reasons to Love Lettering

rosiedargenzio
As technology becomes more advanced and more impressive, I find myself missing the “old way” of doing things more and more. Even though I love a great digitally printed logo or sign, you can’t beat the hand-painted signs and lettering that used to cover shops, storefronts and the sides of buildings. To honor that tradition, and great lettering everywhere, this month’s hashtag challenge was all about capturing moments of great lettering. Thousands of you uploaded and shared your stunning lettering moments and today we’re honoring 40 of our favorites (They were too good to narrow any more!): from hand-painted quotations and words of inspiration to beautiful fading signs advertising long-forgotten companies. Thank you so much to everyone who shared these moments with us. xo, grace

What fun! It’s fun to imagine the time (decade) that many of these fonts came from. It helps to date a place. Very fun! Thank you!
