Who we are

Hello, I’m Em – sign painter, artist, letter lover, pet-mum, wife-to-be and founder of Letters by Em.
 
Letters by Em was created as a much-needed opportunity to work away from the screen, honouring a traditional – somewhat endangered – craft that embraces the sensitivity of ‘hand-made’. 
 
Primarily exploring the use of genuine gold leaf, that is incredibly delicate – you need only breathe a little too hard, move a little too suddenly and you are liable to ruin a leaf! Despite its temperamental nature, gold leaf gives an undeniably captivating and luxurious feel to a finished piece.
 
If you’re someone who’s looking for something a bit different in their home or for a unique gift to celebrate an occasion or preserve a treasured memory, then you’ll find that here.
 
Each piece is created by hand in my studio. Using various gilding techniques (which is a fancy word for applying gold leaf, which looks similarly fancy!), with the highest quality materials, to produce beautiful handcrafted typographic signs.
