I’m Katy Ackerman, the owner and artist behind Lewes Lettering Co.
Throughout my years of experience in the wedding industry, I’ve come to learn that to make an event shine, it's all truly about the details. The personalized touches you choose to incorporate will be what you and your guests remember and hold on to long after the champagne has been popped and the thank you notes sent out. From a backyard soiree to a black tie affair, Lewes Lettering Co. will help you dream up & create those one of a kind pieces that will last a lifetime.
I take great joy in getting to know my clients, and creating something that captures their unique vision. From designing a custom invitation map honoring the couple's most important locations to writing menus on palm leaves for a tropic rehearsal dinner, creating these personalized and one-of-a-kind touches brings me so much joy!
So, thank you for stopping by & please take a look around. I would love to help you make your event uniquely yours.
Words cannot even begin to describe how wonderful my experience was working with Katy/Lewes Lettering Co. on my wedding invitation suite. From the start, I really cared about my wedding invites/paper products. I wanted to bring my Newport, RI destination wedding to life through them and generate excitement for the wedding weekend. Katy worked with me on a custom monogram, imprinted calligraphy suite, and a custom map that included the weekend's events. It's also something we will eventually frame as a keepsake of the most perfect weekend. I was so impressed with how everything came out that I went the extra mile with her to design my rehearsal dinner menus, day-of details, and even my thank you notes to match my invitation suite that were ready and waiting for me when I returned from our honeymoon. Katy's attention to detail and passion for what she does is truly remarkable. She makes so much of the stress of wedding planning so easy with her attentiveness, quick responses, and utmost care to make you the happiest bride possible. If you have the opportunity to work with Katy on any portion of your wedding day, DO IT. I would do it over and over again if I could <3
We had so much fun working with Katy on our invitation suite and day of stationery. She is so skilled and really listened to our ideas. Katy took the time to get to know what made us unique as a couple and then incorporated special touches into our stationery. Every time I saw an email from Katy with an attachment, I felt so excited because I knew something beautiful was waiting for me. She really blew us away with her talent and ability to create invitations and stationery that uniquely represented us and were beyond what we could have imagined. Katy has an innate ability to manipulate colors, art, and of course lettering in a way that makes magic. To top it all off she is the sweetest person! We were beyond happy with everything that she created for our wedding.
Designing my wedding invitations and other paper products quickly became my favorite part of wedding planning largely due to how fun and easy Katy of Lewes Lettering Co was to work with! I had so much fun throwing back and forth ideas with her and coming up with our overall design. She did our entire invitation suite, calligraphy, programs, menus, table numbers, escort card display and other signage. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her and communication was a breeze- her invoicing system is super easy to use and understand which made everything very straight forward. She definitely went above and beyond to help me make my wedding the best it could be!
(Wo)man's best friend. I’ll search out a dog in any crowd and quickly become his/her best friend. If you ask my friends, it’s definitely my most “annoying” quality - but it’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make.

Traveling! I am always on the hunt for my next passport stamp… I travel to eat, enjoy culture, see cute little towns & did I say, eat?
Our town… I love my little town of Lewes, Delaware so much. There is such great community here, gorgeous beaches, amazing food & the best margaritas in the state of Delaware….
My morning ritual. 30 minutes of coffee, a good book & a little journal action. Even if it means a 5:30am wake up, it’s always worth it.
