I’m Katy Ackerman, at your service for all things paper & calligraphy related! My calligraphy journey began when my high school sweetheart and I got engaged in the spring of 2015. I knew I wanted each wedding guest to receive personalized and stylish envelopes to compliment our whimsical beach wedding, and took on the challenge of creating our wedding suite myself. Since then, and with the support of my small business friendly community, I have been able to turn Lewes Lettering Co. into much more than a hobby, working on over 70 weddings & events in our first full year of business.
Throughout my experience, I’ve come to learn that to make any event shine, it's all about the details. From your backyard wedding to a black tie affair, Lewes Lettering Co. will take your event vision and transform it using calligraphy, paper and more. Invitation, envelopes and escort cards are just the beginning!
I take great joy in getting to know my clients, and creating something that captures their unique vision. From writing menus on palm leaves for a tropic rehearsal dinner to curating vintage stamp collections to compliment romantic envelope calligraphy, creating these little, unique 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 one-of-a-kind.
Wubs. puppers. doggos. 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.
Katy was amazing to work with! She addressed our invitations and did all of our day signage (bar signs, table numbers) as well as our escort cards. We are so happy with how everything turned out! It all looked so beautiful and was exactly what we wanted. Katy is super responsive and helpful in executing your vision. Cannot recommend her enough!
10 out of 10 !!!
Katy was so amazing to work with. She did such a beautiful job with the calligraphy for our save the date/wedding invitation envelopes. She was very prompt and always stayed in touch throughout the process! My fiancé and I will definitely be recommending Katy to all our friends/family in need of her services!
Katy was so easy to work with and the envelopes came out beautiful! I received so many complements. I was unsure whether to hire a calligrapher but I am so glad I did. My large order was done quickly and I was able to get my invitations out exactly when I wanted to. Katy was so responsive. I would recommend her to everyone!
Katy was an absolute pleasure to work with! She did both our calligraphy for our wedding invitations as well as place cards and a few signs that we had out around the room. She was able to expertly match her calligraphy to that of our invitations which made for a seamless style and beautiful composition, and she helped us with a more "non-traditional" and fun idea for our place cards! From start to finish she was both professional and timely getting everything done for our 400 person wedding! No easy feat!! We cannot that Katy enough and we look forward to working with her for future endeavors!
Katy was a joy to work with. She did our calligraphy for our place cards, wedding signage, vows as day of gifts, and a special quote piece. Not only did she do an incredible job from the beginning, but she worked with me to make sure every piece was what I had envisioned in both color and style of calligraphy. I cannot say enough good things about her work- she's amazing! I'm so excited to use her for holiday cards and our other calligraphy needs. Thank you thank you Katy!
