The Studio & Gallery

Mystic Blue Signs opened our shop on Magazine Street in 1996, but we have been specializing in hand lettering and illustration since 1973.

New Orleans has such inspiring architecture and history that it's a natural location for a hand-painted sign shop. We use traditional methods and materials and we draw everything by hand, from logos to lettering to illustration. We hand-cut, hand-carve, hand-paint. We use wood, metal, special sign paint and sign painters' quills, flats and fitches. We use real 23 karat gold leaf sheets on signs and glass transom numbers. We even paint scenes and signs on the sides of buildings. And we ship signs all over the world.

For the last eight years, Mystic Blue has hosted regular art shows in our gallery, featuring local artists. We sell prints, paintings, posters, signs, stained-glass, jewelry and objets d'art made by our artists. Studio/Gallery hours are Tues thru Fri 10:30am-5pm and Sat 10:30am-3pm.
