About Us

And Here We Are is a woman owned and operated design + letterpress printing studio based in Columbus, Ohio.

Our work focuses on modern hand lettered and illustrated prints and stationery that are beautiful (but not precious), irreverent and thought-provoking. Most pieces are drawn, painted and printed by hand on antique presses in our studio or with help from trusted local vendors. 

And Here We Are was founded in 2012, working on custom wedding invitations out of the corner of a tiny Brooklyn apartment and renting letterpress time at a nearby print studio. In 2015 we relocated to Columbus, Ohio, and bought our first press (a Vandercook SP-15) We launched our first line of products at the National Stationery Show in 2017, and later that year moved our studio out of the house. We now occupy a large studio space in the Franklinton Arts District of downtown Columbus, where we recently added a Heidelberg Windmill to the family.

Meghan Hopkins Sokorai, Founder

 

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 illustration, hand lettering & typeface design and runs our letterpresses, often while wrangling an exceptionally active toddler (and with another on the way!). When she's not drawing or printing (or thinking about drawing or printing), Meghan loves to travel, read, and mess around in the garden.
