Welcome to Lavelle Lettering, I’m so glad you’re here! My name is Abbi and I am a self-taught calligrapher and hand lettering artist. Although I specialise in chalkboards and mirror signs for weddings and businesses, I love to share my passion for calligraphy by teaching workshops. I am also a live-event artist offering on-site calligraphy and engraving for brands and businesses. In my shop, you’ll find made-to-order kits that are perfect for sending as a gift or for treating yourself. 

Here is a list of the services that I offer and those all-important workshop dates! Prices for weddings and events are dependent on many factors, so if you need a more in-detail quote, please don’t hesitate to send me a brief description of what you’re looking for over on the custom requests page.

Everything that I do is hand-lettered, meaning everything is done by hand! No printing, no vinyl, no stickers, just freehand.

I offer a large range of on-the-day wedding stationery and signage including; place-cards, table numbers, table plans/seating charts, welcome signs, order of the day. Please use the contact page to get your custom quote, a price guide, or to make a booking. I work with multiple wedding planners, stylists and venues across the North East to bring that extra bit of luxury to your wedding day that calligraphy creates.

Events

Live calligraphy is one sure-fire way to give your event the wow-factor. I am able to write or engrave on a number of different surfaces, enabling me to offer calligraphy customisation for a wide range of products and packaging. I am able to travel to most locations in Newcastle, Northumberland and the North East. My previous clients for on-site customisation include Molton Brown and Dior. 

Are you looking for something a bit more bespoke, want to hire my services or work together? I love a new challenge, whether that’s creating something unique for a special gift or adding calligraphy to an unusual surface. Whatever it is, send me a message and I’ll get back to you with more information as soon as possible. 

Read some lovely words from previous customers.

‘I have previously ordered a calligraphy kit, as well as a professional piece for a gift. Both times Abbi has been amazing! 10/10 service and so helpful and patient with making the custom order. Can’t recommend enough and I look forward to finding more reasons to come back again.’

Rachel

‘Abbi designed our table plan on the biggest chalkboard I have ever seen! Her calligraphy is amazing and we got so many compliments on the day! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for anything handwritten for a wedding or other occasion. Thank you so much.’

Charlotte

‘I went on a Modern Calligraphy course with my daughter, run by Abbi and we had a great time. Abbi is a great tutor, she explained the art of calligraphy and the gifts she gave us to take home were a lovely thought.

I hope she holds more courses!’
