Who We Are
Hi! I’m Jes.
And, I’m the artist and founder of JesSmith Designs where I focussed mainly on wedding invitations and calligraphy. It was actually my husband’s idea to expand and encouraged me to invest in a laser engraving machine.
That’s how Script and Grain was born.
Now my husband Ben and I work together to create customizable gifts and keepsakes for both a local and international community.
Some of my favorite things to create are personalized wooden items and signs often made from handwriting. We have the most creative customers with the best ideas! There’s no limit to what we can do or create.
Family is a huge theme for Script and Grain. We have five children and part of our mission is showing our kids what’s possible. It’s also a family business! The older kids help out in the workshop and create their own designs to ship as add-ons with our orders.
Community is at the heart of Script and Grain. Both supporting local teams and events and providing quality workmanship to local businesses in our hometown of Hanover, Pennsylvania.
Getting to hang out in my workshop everyday is such a joy. Getting to be creative and serving a community I’ve come to love is a dream. I believe every piece I create and deliver tells a story. It really is a collaborative process. And I want my customers to know every single order is special.
