Lisa Woodard  Calligrapher, Designer, Printer

let's break the ice a bit.

I'm a New Zealand raised graphic designer, calligrapher, and event stationer currently residing in Southern California with my husband – a VFX artist and Ohio native – who shares in my ongoing struggle of adjusting to life without the Auckland coffee joints we miss so dearly. A 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. 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, and 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 absolutely adore creating suites and day-of pieces for excited couples in the throws of planning one of the most memorable days of their lives.

Custom invitations, illustration and spot calligraphy, hand-painted signage and murals to semi-custom suites, monograms and large-scale lettering, I would love to discuss ideas for your event and work with you to bring your vision to life.


Design is not a thing you do. It's a way of life.
