  • 2019 WINNER OF THE NOT ON THE HIGH STREET MAKE AWARD - ‘FOREVER & LASTING’

  • SHORTLISTED FOR ‘YOUNG BUSINESS PERSON OF THE YEAR’ IN THE 2019 SOUTH DEVON BUSINESS AWARDS

Hello! I’m Hannah Smith and I’m a signwriter based in Devon, England. Lauren's Letters was launched in 2017. I had just finished university and was searching for a creative role. Having grown up watching my dad, David A Smith, a traditional signwriter and glass embosser, create mesmerising pieces of glass art, I decided to use the skills I had been taught and shape my own creative career.

Lauren's Letters is named after my younger sister. Lauren was making a letter L for fun one rainy day at home and it got me thinking, maybe other people would like to order their own unique, handcrafted gold letter? It felt only right to name this business after her - it’s a way to say thank you for giving me that light bulb moment!

So what began with orders for gold glass letters has now turned into orders for unique commissions as well, which I absolutely love! With the help of my partner Edward, we built a studio in our home, and I have been making unique glass signs for customers around the world ever since.

Thank you for visiting my website. Please use the contact page to get in touch! I can’t wait to hear from you.
