About Old


Mr. M. G. Ward Penmanship and Design is a lettering and leather burning studio based out of Los Angeles, California. Michael, the artist and penman behind the name has studied the craft with some of the very best penman and calligraphers in the world, including Master Penman Michael Sull, Harvest Crittenden, and Jake Weidmann.

Known for graceful lines and beautiful flourishes, the traditional Spencerian hand (used originally for business purposes in the 1800’s and early 1900’s) is the focus of most of Michael’s study.

Feel free to reach out with any inquiries you may have about any of the products in the shop or penmanship in general.
