ABOUT US Blackbird Letterpress is a letterpress printmaking studio in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Founded in 2003, we blend traditional techniques and organic forms with new technology and contemporary design. We work with designers in house and out and moved into a larger printshop in late 2016! Our original stationery brings fun to correspondence. Choose from animal shaped cards that can hold a gift card, money, or love note. With sturdy binding and letterpress printed covers, our recycled smooth-paper notebooks are perfect for writing, drawing, and musing. Our novelty movable animals, info spinners, and perpetual calendars are sure to please any age. In the printshop, we use recycled and tree-free materials, citrus based solvents and low VOC inks–making a small footprint with a bold impact. Write to someone special, draw a new plan, keep in touch, save the world.

ORDERING OPENING ORDERS: $100, 6 item minimum per card design (singles), 3 boxed sets, calendars & notebooks. Boxed sets of cards cannot be separated for individual sale. Prices and availability are subject to change at any time. Reorders- minimum $100. TO PLACE AN ORDER:

SHIPPING: All orders are shipped via UPS Ground or USPS unless otherwise requested. US shipping costs: orders up to $200=$13, $200-$399=$15, $400+ =$20, depending on type of order. International orders pay actual shipping. All customs fees due are responsibility of buyer.

RETURNS: Only defective goods can be returned, within 5 days of receipt. PLEASE NOTE: Because all Blackbird Letterpress goods are printed by hand, products may vary slightly. The

impression you see in our paper goods will vary depending on the paper and type of relief image we use. A linocut leaves less impression than a photopolymer plate, for example. While we enjoy the texture than debossing creates, we will not exceed the ability of our press or compromise our type or print blocks to make a deeper impression than good printing demands. In everything we print, we strive to maintain high quality and strong design.

ECO COMMITMENT: We are committed to decreasing our footprint on the planet. We use low VOC inks, citrus

solvents for clean-up, and recycled & tree-free, non-chlorine bleached papers.
