First and foremost, just to clarify, Sammy and Lola do not exist. They’re simply a figment of your imagination. Though, we’ll tell you who do exist? Us, Maryanne and Justin.

We’re a husband and wife team who want to give people that wow factor for their event! And no, we aren’t talking about us, we’re talking about our lights!

You see, it’s an interesting story. Sammy & Lola originally started out as an online kawaii stationery store. It just so happened that one day back in 2014, as Maryanne was looking through some stock from an overseas supplier, that she came across some small desk-sized, light up letters. So, like any woman does, she told Justin how much she needed them. Naturally, like any man would reply, he told her not to waste her money and that he’d make her some. It was here that laid the foundation of what would become ‘Sammy & Lola, light up letters’.

Justin having extensive experience in the signage industry, knew the way and kick-started the research and development prototypes. We wanted to create something different, unique, something that would literally light up the room; cue our lightbulb moment (pun totally intentional). Lifesize light up letters, ones made from sustainable timber, hand painted right here in Sydney, ones like you’ve never seen before. From here the ‘XO’ was born and found its way into a photo shoot, the rest is history.
