Oh, hello.

And Here We Are is the design and letterpress printing studio of Meghan Hopkins Sokorai.

Meghan’s work focuses on modern hand lettered and illustrated prints and stationery. AHWA was founded in Brooklyn NY in 2012, and relocated to Columbus OH in 2015. Our mission is to make cards & prints & things that are beautiful but not precious, irreverent but not campy. Each piece is drawn painted and printed by hand on antique presses in our studio or with help from trusted local vendors. Made with love in the U.S.

Meet Meghan

DRAW-ER, LETTER-ER, HEAD PRINTER

Originally from Cincinnati, Meghan spent 9 years in New York City before moving back to Ohio in 2015. She holds a degree in Visual Communication Design from the Ohio State University and a certification in Typeface Design from the Cooper Union in NYC. Her background includes stints in textile design, branding, advertising, public relations and television. Her work has been featured in publications such as Elle Decor, Vogue Living, Better Homes and Gardens, The Knot, Martha Stewart Weddings, BRIDES, and she recently penned the preface to Ginko Press’ new book, The Modern Wedding: From Graphics to Styling.

Meghan concentrates mostly on hand lettering & typeface design and runs our letterpress, often while simultaneously wrangling an extremely wiggly baby. When she’s not drawing or printing (or thinking about drawing or printing), Meghan loves to travel, mess around in the garden, and is slowly updating & decorating their Victorian house.

Meet  John

PRINTER, CARRIER OF HEAVY THINGS, ADMIN GUY

John was born and raised in the woods of South Jersey just minutes away from the Atlantic and graduated from Philadelphia University’s School of Design, with a background in branding, advertising and web/digital design. He moved to the Big Apple in 2007 with two dollars in his pocket and suitcase full of dreams,then followed his wife’s whims and moved into a old Victorian house in Columbus in 2015.

Since the arrival of our kid, John works full time at a local design agency and spends his evenings and weekends helping Meg with printing, filling orders, shipping and general admin. When John’s not mixing inks or pushing pixels around, you can find him tinkering on any of his two-wheeled vehicles or trolling Spotify for the best Yacht Rock playlists.
