About Lettering By Liz:

Liz Roessler is a life-long Bostonian and professional lettering artist with a design studio / classroom in the city's Leather District.

She has been obsessed with writing the Roman alphabet ever since she could hold a crayon in her lil' hand. Back in the olden days of the 1970s (before the interwebs), as a young girl, she spent endless imaginative hours at a big table at the Boston Public Library, pulling all the beginner's lettering books off the shelves tracing and emulating classic calligraphy styles. She joyfully experimented with letters and numbers to transform them into her own unique, whimsical creations.

After many years of perfecting her self-taught method, styles, and forms, Liz began offering custom calligraphy design work, including envelope art, seating cards, menus, programs, monogram and logo design, hand-lettering on chalkboards and mirrors, and more. For 25 years, she has provided professional hand-lettering work to a wide variety of clients, including individuals, companies and non-profits of all types and sizes, and some wicked famous people.

She is now thrilled to be spending the majority of her time sharing her knowledge and passion for calligraphy, teaching her wildly popular small group classes to aspiring lettering artists worldwide! Classes are offered in person at her magical and enchanting downtown Boston design studio, monthly in NYC and all over New England; also events on-location, and online. Her classes have become in-demand year-round for corporate off-sites and in-house, team-building activities.

Liz is also available to travel to and teach at special events, design conferences, corporate locations, or other locations...spreading calligraphy love across the land!
