Lettering for DIY “Book” Stairs


Priced per stair.

Mailbox numbers are our bread and butter, but sometimes for fun we make DIY book stairs lettering. Have you ever seen a staircase painted to look like a stack of your favorite books? It’s thrilling to the bibliophile’s soul. But we don’t all have the patience or the skill to hand paint lettering. With these, you can get the same look without the tedium.



DIY book stairs decals to warm a book lover’s heart.

Step one: paint your stair risers a few different colors to mimic the background colors of your books. Step two: apply these vinyl decals for the lettering and embellishments. Your book stairs are done. Easy peasy. Deciding on which books and what color scheme is a lot harder than actually doing it.

Just like our mailbox numbers, these are all custom made to order so, YES, you can get any book ever written. Even if it’s your grandmother’s unpublished manuscript. We’ll use fonts that fit with the era and genre of the book, or in some cases we can create something similar to the original cover. You get proofs to see what they will look like before we make them and you’re free to make tweaks and changes until they’re exactly what you want.

You can get your lettering all in one color or we can do a few different ones. Perhaps silver and gold just like the lettering an expensive book might have on its spine? Choose from white, black, gold, silver, copper, beige, red, dark blue, true green or bright yellow.

To order, pick your lettering color and general size of your risers then specify the title, author, EXACT size of your stair riser not including the tread and let us know if there is a particular edition of the book that you’d like us to match (no guarantees but we’ll do our best!). Add it to your cart and then come back to enter the details for your next step.
