BirdDog im{press}ions


birddog design + letterpress :: eco-crafted paper goods // custom collaborations
A design studio with a collaborative approach. a print shop with an eye for craftsmanship in place of perfectionism. we love pattern and perspective. we honor history with modern technology. we heart handmade and live for a story well woven. we use { and re-use } every last scrap.


What started as a serious penchant for pen and paper, a little design studio in the digital age, with a more tactile experience grew. Feathered with more than 13 years of design expertise in our cap, the BirdDog Press began spreading its wings into letterpress printing, bookbinding and a handmade approach.


{ our commitment to sustainability and the history of letterpress }

BirdDog Press clientele trust the creative process and believe in the pricelessness of making a great first impression. Our offerings
are an ecclectic, collaborative approach to graphic design, bookbinding, social stationery, announcements, invitations, self-promotions, business collateral, boutique packaging & also includes a line of readymade and personalized designs for retail. We do all of this with a commitment to sustainability in every step of the process.

Our paper offerings are based on availability of sizes and shapes, quality, eco-friendly qualities and their reception to the impression of the letterpress printing process. Combinations are endless. From fancy to alternative from local to european, we offer recycled, tree-free, plantable, cutsom handmade, cotton, linen, bamboo, wood veneer, ultra thick, brightly colored, finely textured and duplexed papers. While the BirdDog Press uses some new technologies in producing their work, we are firecely dedicated to the perpetuation of this historical craft and honor those traditions, keeping them alive and integrated into our overall process.


{ founded by the family hound }

Back before our trusty Chandler & Price Platen press was unloaded into the studio with a heavy iron thud, we rescued a puppy from Quebec. We named her Siler, but as a German Shorthaired Pointer, our family endearingly called her by the generic term for any hunting breed – “bird dog”. Later, when we rescued the century old press and put it to work, well, the moniker just rolled off the tongue.
