Do you live outside of our current shipping areas? For years we've tried to figure out how to serve you well! For a small business like ours, shipping overseas is expensive, like really really expensive... and, honestly, unreliable (for our specific business). Our products are fragile, and not packaged to withstand a global journey across months... more like, a cross continent journey across days. But you are important to us! And we would be honored for LL to be a part of your home abroad! We've been hard at work for months to come up with the perfect solution, and it's finally here!
And so, without further ado, here's our exciting announcement!:
Starting August 19, visitors to LindsayLetters.co from outside of the U.S. or Canada will be prompted to shop our new collection of Fine Art Downloads – exclusively for our International clients! While international shipping on our delicate products remains formidable, we are proud & grateful to offer these downloads exclusively for LL clients who live outside of our shipping zones. (Joy actually wrote that but she's a professional writer so she knows words like "formidable.")
Your purchase of a Fine Art Download includes several high-resolution JPEG files of my original artwork (some paintings, some lettering and designs), and it will come in several sizes based on the size bucket you've selected: small, medium, large. We've tried to make the process super easy for you to find the size that works best both with your specific space, as well as your geographic location. Here's how a product listing looks:
After selecting your size of choice and placing your order, your artwork will be immediately available to you. Just as if you were placing an order for a physical piece of art, we strongly encourage you to find a space for your art and measure before you purchase, so that way you know about what scale you'll be looking for. This is espcially important because you are unable to print the files larger than the size you purchase. (For one, it would look bad, for two, it's unlawful). You can rest easy though, because as long as you know about what size you want, you'll receive several files within that grouping that will work with European sizing (A sizes), Standard imperial sizes, and also a handful of IKEA frame options (we chose IKEA because they ship worldwide, and it's a widely known and accessible source! We don't get any financial kickbacks on those frames, but we love them, and know you will too!).
The sizing starts at around 11x14 sizing (larger than a home printer), and you will get the most bang for your buck, and be happiest with your product, if you have the files professionally printed. Do a bit of research in your area – you can use a local corner print shop or a big box store, whatever works best for you. You'll just email the file, along with the print release, and tell them to print the file at the size that the file you downloaded. (The files are titled with the size, and you can also refer back to the product listing). There are also great options online where you can upload your artwork and have it printed on canvas or paper – just do some googling! You can print them on any size canvas or printer, and we've recently seen people using vinyl for large format art. It's not my personal preference but it's your art now to (personally, without financial gain) do what you like with! You get one print with your purchase, and our team is standing by if you have any questions in the unlimited sea of choices!
We've started with a collection of our best sellers, but if you don't see your favorite right away, not to worry! The collection will continue to expand on a per-request basis! Simply email email@example.com with your request.

LL is founded out of the belief that everyone is that everyone is worthy of beautiful, meaningful, attainable art. We thank you for your patience and hope that this new offering blesses you and your walls!
Please be sure to email us photos, or tag us on social media! We just can't wait to see how you incorporate LL art into your home!
Questions? Don't hesitate to ask! (We'd love your feedback!)
Lindsay's Abstract American Flag has a really special place in our hearts. Classic and fresh, timeless and artful, it is (in the words of reviewer Heather P.) "the absolute perfect American flag."
The sight of the stars & stripes waving against a blue sky is something that can't be improved on. But there is something about Lindsay's painting that really captures my (Joy's) heart and imagination.
It is "perfectly imperfect," which reminds me of that insightful phrase from the Constitution: "more perfect."
But to leave something more beautiful—more lovely, more just, more excellent, more fair, more honoring, more loving, more cared for—as a result of our having participated and invested in it: that's a really worthy goal. Will it be perfect? Never. But it will be more perfect.
Helping you create a more beautiful life and home is really the heart and mission of Lindsay Letters®. Not for the sake of keeping up with appearances or someone else's standards, but to surround you with beauty, comfort, and inspiration, as you create a more beautiful world around you, in your own way.
We're thrilled to say that both the Abstract American Flag and Alabaster Saltwash Flag are now offered as Frame TV art—in addition to canvas, print, and download! If you're drawn to it, you have all of the options to make it your very own!
Wishing you a happy, safe, beauty-filled Fourth of July weekend, friends!
Joy & Team
Last week I (Joy) hosted a party for my husband's grad school classmates, to celebrate the end of their semester. Everyone was vaccinated, and it was WILD hosting people in my home again. Wild!
(I got so many compliments on Fairy Garden—my favorite of Lindsay's pieces in 2021, possibly ever! We bought our home at the start of the pandemic and focused so much on making it comfortable and functional for our family... I forgot other people would get to enjoy it someday.)
One of the conversations we had that evening was about how the pandemic impacted extroverts and introverts differently.
Eight people at a dinner party is a small focus group, but do you know what the common theme was?
The extroverts said they enjoyed the slower pace and time at home more than they thought they would... and the introverts realized they really do need social activities and togetherness on occasion.
It's as if quarantine moved all of us out of our comfort zone or uncomfortably into it, and recalibrated our needs for solitude and togetherness.
I'm sharing this because I set out to write about Lindsay's newly expanded Duos & Trios Collection, and this conversation about introversion/extroversion came to mind!
You could call these pieces "ambiverts"—someone whose personality has an equal balance of extrovert and introvert features. They each stand alone beautifully, but they belong together, too.
Has staying at home during the pandemic shifted or solidified your extroversion or introversion? Leave a comment on this blog post and tell us! (Pretend you're at a dinner party at the Girls House when you do, okay?)
I've been so blessed this year by allll of the people caring for my kids. Eva and Phoenix's teachers have been AMAZING, and I wanted to make something super fun for them!
So, I updated an already existing phrase I wrote, and I think the result more fully captures all of the love and ENERGY their teachers put in, every day! Also, the stickers remind me of the way kids are adding flair to their water bottles, the way I used to decorate my trapper keeper.
You can get the download right here!
We can never show teachers too much gratitude and appreciation, but especially this year. I hope the Believe in Someone download helps you put a smile on the face of some teachers (or coaches, or instructors, or caretakers)!
You can print the download right on your home printer, or send it to a local print shop, like Office Max. Then order one of these Target frames for pick up—you're golden!
Want to let them pick the perfect present? Our e-gift cards are printable, too!
