Green Bird Press is a small letterpress printing and bookbinding studio owned and operated by Susan Porteous in Bend, Oregon. We take a modern, minimalist approach to design and our letterpress products, from prints to greeting cards, are hand printed in small batches on our two vintage presses, a Vandercook SP-15 and a Kelsey Excelsior X.

Letterpress is a relief printing technique where the raised surface from a printing plate or handset type is inked and pressed into paper. The pressure from the press combined with a thick paper stock creates a deep impression in the paper giving each piece a tactile quality that is unique to letterpress.

You can visit us in our studio located at The Workhouse in Bend, Oregon.
