Susan Porteous' Profile

Green Bird Press is a small letterpress operation with a modern minimalist approach to design. All products are hand printed on a 6x10 inch Kelsey press using a combination of handset type and magnesium plates produced from digital files. Various ready-to-purchase designs including cards, coasters, and gift tags are available here at Green Bird’s Etsy store and new designs are always in the works.

Who is Green Bird Press?

Green Bird Press is run by myself, Susan Porteous, with help from my green cheek conure, a cute and fluffy, often annoying, little green bird named Stormy. Although the little one came up with the press name and lent her image to the logo she really isn’t much help—she’s too small to operate the press and can’t be around even the least toxic inks and chemicals. So while Stormy is napping, squawking, chewing, and generally being a bird, I take care of the rest of the business operations.

In addition to running Green Bird Press, I have a studio art practice (you can check out my work and find out about any current exhibitions at www.susanporteous.net).

If you have any questions about products, are interested in a custom order, or just want to say hi, please feel free to contact me, Susan, at greenbirdpress [!at] gmail.com or send me a convo through Etsy.
