Mystic Blue Signs opened on Magazine Street in 1997, 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.
Since 2003, 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.

The Center for the Lettering Arts was established in 2010 as a resource to encourage the use of hand lettering as an expressive art, and to promote its use through collaboration in graphic design and printing.
We offer classes and workshops in hand lettering, organize lectures and workshops for student groups and host exhibits in our gallery.
