About me

Ever since I was little, I was always creating and designing something. I didn't know where my career was going to take me until it was time to plan my own wedding. I was having so much fun creating and planning our special day, with all the details, it was then I knew I had to go into the wedding industry. While preparing our wedding I started to teach myself calligraphy (lettering) and attended a few classes in Annapolis, Maryland.  I hand-lettered names on oyster shells as escort cards, which fit the theme for our coastal wedding. Our wedding was when I created my first signature drink sign! September of 2018, after our wedding, is when I started Kate Slayton Lettering.

KSL is a boutique sign + design lettering shop that specializes in unique signs, drink stirrers and so much more for weddings, events, parties, showers + gifts!

I have a studio cottage (my office; located at my house) in Arnold, MD and offer local pickups (by appointment only). I also offer deliveries for rentals and non rentals, as well as ship anywhere in the US.

I look forward to meeting you!

About my family

Meet my husband Kevin! Kevin and I have been together for 10 years and married for 5! We got married on June 30, 2018, which is my parents’ anniversary and my great grandparents’ anniversary (it was planned!). Just outside of Annapolis Maryland, we live in a little beach cottage that we love and call home. We have a crazy golden doodle puppy named Cali Dune! Kevin is a neurosurgical PA and works with me for KSL on all of his days off. If you are local to Annapolis, I am sure you will see us around town!
