Thanks to Abdullah Syed for this month's promo doodle!

Come letter all your love (or hate, if that suits you better) at this month's meeting!

Special Note: We will also have access to the laser cutter during this meeting for you to engrave a design out of wood! It's $5 to engrave, and limited to a maximum size of 6 inches by 6 inches.

It is free to attend this meeting and participation in laser engraving is not mandatory! Just bring cash if you'd like to participate!

RSVP to our meeting so we know you're coming!


WHAT SHOULD I BRING? Bring your favorite doodle supplies [paper + pens + paints + etc]. We will also have some paper on-hand as well as our PEN SWAP BOX for you to test out different style pens for your drawings.

WHAT IS THIS? The Unofficial Hand Lettering Society of Silver Spring is a free monthly gathering for hand lettering enthusiasts to letter in company. Every month has a theme to jog the creative juices, but we would never dare limit your creativity to the theme! Come make new friends, swap pen and paper secrets and meet other creatives in your community.

WHERE ARE THE MEETINGS? Our meetings are held at (and sponsored by) Catylator Makerspace, which is located in THE WORLD BUILDING at 8121 Georgia Avenue, Silver Spring, MD. DIAL 011 ON THE CALLBOX to access the building. Catylator is located on LL1. Take the elevator down.

WHERE CAN I PARK? Parking is available in the parking lot off of Fenton Street & Silver Spring Avenue, or on the street. All parking is free in downtown Silver Spring after 7pm!

WANT TO GIVE BACK? Support the society by getting more involved! Join our mailing list for updates. Follow @SSLetters on Twitter + Instagram, and don't forget to use #SSLETTERS to share your lettering even between meetings & brag about your skillz! We'll repost on our channels, too! You can also help keep our hand lettering community alive with a donation today! Funds go towards putting on our community projects and providing materials at meetings. The Unofficial Hand Lettering Society is a completely volunteer based organization because we love our community. (That means you!) <3
