A year ago at Christmastime I started seeing letterboards popping up in my Instagram feed. I soon decided I needed one (or three) of my own. I bought my first one soon after the new year last year – the small one called the Poet. I bought my letterboards from Letterfolk, a US based company, run by a husband and wife team. I love that I can have these beautiful boards in my home and support another small business and family at the same time. I bought the Writer and the Wordsmith during a sale they had last year, and I use them for business purposes usually. I use them for pricing, or for shop info.
The letters that come with the letterboards are plastic and need to be cut apart. You can bend them back and forth to separate them from the base piece, but that leaves little extra bits attached to the letter. I wanted my letters to be nice and neat so I pulled out my x-acto knife and a cutting matte and went to work. A brand-new blade and the letters cut off easily and cleanly! Best tool to use for cutting apart those letters.
These boards are so fun and so versatile. For Small Business Saturday I ran a sale in my online shop. I used my Poet board, paired with the large letters from my Wordsmith letters to create a sign for promoting the sale on Instagram and Facebook.
These boards work great for a fun way to present food or announce what you are serving. You can see my review of the grain teff here.

Towards the end of the year LetterFolk introduced this mini letterboard and gold letters. The letterboard in white comes with black letters. I purchased the gold letters separately.
My 19 and 14 year old daughters got their own letterboards for Christmas. We can all express ourselves in words on a letterboard now!
Letterfolk introduced a fun blush color and a lovely blue last fall, as well as a journal. And they say they have some more fun products coming soon too! So follow along with them and keep up with all the great stuff!
