Hello! I’m Maria, the owner of Designed By M.E. Stationery.
I launched Designed By M.E. Stationery in 2008 hoping to have a few customers who wanted my invitation designs. Well, I got my wish and then some! I'm so thankful for the success I found, but I'm also ready for a change after many, many years of making the same thing day and day out. I also grew tired of seeing the same exact fonts and products over and over again on Etsy. I want to be more creative than that. I want to stand out and be different.
A few years ago on Instagram I noticed hand lettering videos. "Oh! How gorgeous! I want to do that!", I thought. Learning hand lettering would solve my issue of making products that looked like everyone else’s. I took lessons and I practiced A LOT. I mean A LOT. My skills have progressed to a point that I finally feel confident enough about my work and my art to release some designs to you. I hope you love them! You can find photos of my practice and progress on Instagram: @marialetters. I still practice daily, not a day goes by that I don’t learn something new.
Please visit again soon, I’ve got lots of ideas up my sleeve!
