Letters & Dust was originally started after observing a need in the wedding industry to cut down on sign waste by reusing materials such as chalkboards for multiple events. This model has grown and evolved into a wide rental inventory for in-state clients, but has also allowed me to create keepsake pieces for those located outside of Oregon. Hand-lettered signs bring a unique detail to your event and can be crafted for any theme. Check out our options below for both rentals and keepsake options.
RENTAL OPTIONS - OREGON ONLY / OUT OF STATE ORDERS
We have a large inventory of rental options ranging from clear, black, white and frosted acrylic to wooden signs and vintage framed mirrors and chalkboards. All rentals include easels and stands ( style depends on availability ). We offer a six day rental period, and all writing on the signs is custom to your unique event.

For our out of state clients, we can ship any of the below materials (panels only, no frames) in standard frame sizes up to 24x36". Take a look at the out of state packet for pricing and process information.
The general perception of chalkboards seems to be that they only work in rustic settings—not the case! Placing a beautiful chalkboard in a beautiful ornate frame with modern writing or elegant calligraphy makes it just as adaptable for urban and glam weddings!
Mirrors are a glamorous statement piece for your event! We typically recommend they be used for indoor venues to avoid bright sun reflections, or just be sure they are placed in the shade for outdoor events. We have a wide variety of gold and silver framed mirrors as well as unframed and modern.
We have a variety of light and dark wood unframed signs that are perfect for vineyard weddings, out door venues, or bringing a hint of nature into your industrial or urban space.
CLEAR, BLACK, WHITE , & FROSTED ACRYLIC
These acrylic rental options lend themselves well to any event and pair well with the painted back acrylics which are only available as keepsakes. All artwork is custom and we have a variety of holders and easels to keep them clean and sleek.
PAINTED BACK ACRYLIC
As much as we love the painted back acrylic signs, doing custom colors and designs was leading to far more waste than we can handle in our hearts, which is why in 2020 we will only be selling painted back acrylic signs outright—not offering them as rentals. Our recommendation is mixing our rental inventory with a keepsake welcome or bar sign in the painted acrylic so you can still have them at your event while the other signs can be returned and reused for more love stories.
