In 1932, my great grandfather, Alva, started Cobler Sign Co. where he my grandfather, Joe, and my two uncles, Chuck and John, hand painted signs all over my hometown. Their passion for letterforms and pure craft was handed down to me. Since I could remember I’ve been paging through their lettering books and magazine tear sheets. As I mimicked their practice sheets to learn lettering myself, I dreamed about how I would incorporate this gift in my daily life.
As I’ve grown up, I’ve done hand lettering projects for my friends, I’ve done them for the clients at the advertising agencies I’ve worked for and now I’m ready to create them for the world. I started this site to share the work I’ve made that makes me happy, inspires me, is produced from current events and everything in between.
My hope is that this site inspires you, motivates you, and just brings a smile to your face.
