About Ella

Ella Studio is a graphic design studio and letterpress print shop owned and operated by Lisa Delu Vavrick.

In 1998, Lisa earned her Bachelor of Science in Graphic Design from La Roche College in Pittsburgh, PA. Before starting Ella Studio, Lisa worked as a professional Graphic Designer, most notably serving as Senior Graphic Designer for American Eagle Outfitters.

Lisa went to work for herself in 2002, specializing in custom stationery and invitation design. Many invitations later, in July 2006, Lisa refocused her love of design, paper and letterpress printing to form Ella Studio. Featuring Lisa's original designs, Ella Studio offers witty, stylish stationery printed by hand through the centuries-old craft of letterpress.

Ella Studio is located in Pittsburgh, PA.

who's ella?
Ella Studio is lovingly named after my great-grandmother. Though I never got to meet her, I know from stories and pictures that she was not only a hardworking woman, she also knew how to have fun. She found the humor in every situation and wasn't afraid to laugh out loud. In fact, I bet she'd be laughing out loud right now if she saw my cards!
