Lisa Woodard Calligrapher, Designer, Printer
let's break the ice a bit.
I'm a New Zealand raised graphic designer, calligrapher, and letterpress enthusiast currently residing in Southern California with my husband – a VFX artist and Ohio native – who shares in my ongoing struggle of navigating life without the Auckland coffee joints we miss so dearly. An avid collector of typography books and calligraphy nibs, my top five: antique-gold ink, handmade paper, fine paper twine, vintage stamps, and Pol Roger.
I also take wedding and event stationery very seriously.
My background is in graphic design with a particular affection for print, working with and designing for both standard and specialty print processes. In addition to full-colour fine art + white digital printing capabilities, we proudly letterpress in-house on a 1950’s antique Chandler & Price letterpress. From our first conversation to final delivery you'll be guided through each step as we create wedding stationery to represent and showcase you as a couple, paper goods you can be thrilled to share with your loved ones and family for years to come.
I’m passionate about hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind events and adore creating wedding suites and day-of pieces for excited couples in the throws of planning one of the most memorable days of their lives. I would love to discuss ideas for your event and work with you to bring your vision to life!
