Say It Like You Mean It
At Lionheart Prints, we believe anything worthwhile requires a little bravery. What began in 2013 as a line of hand-lettered greeting cards and gifts has grown into a lifestyle brand celebrating the brave, the kind and the fun. With a lot of heart and a healthy dose of humor, we’ve been able to offer a range of products in stores across the U.S. and beyond.
Drop by our New Orleans flagship studio + shop to see our full range of products, exclusive collaborations with local designers and a selection of carefully curated goods that complement our line.
We spread messages of humor and heart because we’re firm believers in the power of positivity to change lives. But, like, we also try not to take ourselves too seriously. It’s a fine line.
Your Best Friend on Paper
Liz Maute Cooke is a native Oklahoman turned lifelong New Orleanian. Her graphic design career started with markers and scrap paper when she was just 6 years old and “borrowing” supplies from her mom’s office supply cabinet.
In middle school, she turned note-passing into an art form. But it wasn’t until her mid-20s that Liz realized she could turn her favorite thing to do into The Thing She Does.
In May 2014, royalties from a little sketch Liz did on a plane helped send her to study typography in Rome with the School of Visual Art. She got to learn from design heroes like Steven Heller and Louise Fili (and took a quick jaunt to Capri with new friend Gemma O’Brien).
Since then, Liz has honed her skills at some of the most prestigious design and lettering workshops in the world, including the Stationery Show. She also gives workshops on the basics of hand-lettering and digitizing your hand-lettering, and taught a DIY Stationery e-class for Brit + Co.
When she’s not creating new products in her sunny studio, she’s sipping on ginger beer, Netflix-and-chillin’ with Drew, her boo of 11 years, or snapping photos of fab typography on her regular runs through Uptown New Orleans. She’s never met a carb she didn’t like.
