Haaaave you met Mona?
Mona is the owner of Monas Lettering, a Bay Area creative who creates hand-lettering signage for any milestone events but mainly guided towards weddings. Few examples of her work include birthdays, engagement parties, bridal showers, weddings, and even baby showers. Eventually, Mona would also love to provide hand-lettered signage/menus for local businesses.
When and why did you decide to start your new business?
I’m a firm believer that we must guide our paths towards things that make us happy. Hand lettering has been one of my favorite therapeutic hobbies. Throughout the last two years, I have been learning non-stop. Since I have more time during COVID, I’ve been encouraged by friends and families to make it more than just a hobby. Being able to share something I feel proud of with someone else and seeing them spark joy the same way I do, is the most pleasing part of this journey. I started this business, hoping to continue to share my work and serve clients through sharing the same excitement I get over beautiful pieces and making their dream events come true.
What do you love most about running your own business?
- A challenge for myself – in learning how to run a business, learning how other people do it in the same industry. Continuous growth.
- Being able to bring both my idea and the client’s idea to life. Inspiring one another
- Freedom. The ability to create endlessly in any shape or form I want.
The biggest goal for Monas Lettering:
To bring consumer’s ideas to life by executing creative and quality hand-lettered work.
