Felt letter boards and black light boxes are currently experiencing a bit of a renaissance in the design world. But don’t call it a comeback; restaurants, schools, churches, and storefronts have been hip with the trend all along. Even mugshots and class photos of yesteryear got the felt letter board treatment. Yep, the coolest customizable art has been hiding in plain sight all along.
Felt letter boards have a distinctly retro feel (with those classic Helvetica letters, and all!), but I’m also seriously digging the old school cinematic light boxes. The customization is what’s really selling them. Everyone loves a memorable piece of personalized statement art in their home. And this kind of artwork has an edgy throwback feel and generally comes in at under $100. Spell out little love notes and messages, song lyrics, menus, greetings, grocery lists, hilarious quotes, the options are endless. Play with words and letters and negative space to make something truly artistic. You know you want one.
WHERE TO BUY LETTER BOARDS AND LIGHT BOXES:
As for felt letter boards, they come in so many shapes and sizes and you can find letter boards by Balt Essentials, Aarco (for wood-framed felt letter boards and aluminum-framed boards), Ghent (for white-framed letter boards), Alphabet Signs, and at Letterfolk (for great size options and plenty of Instagram inspiration!)
