About

Putting a bird on it since 2007

I've always loved nature--birdwatching, hiking, camping, you name it! Bird vs. Bird was born out of a brainstorm. Every day at my design job in the wide format printing industry I lamented how much scrap print media ended up in the garbage when customers ordered odd-sized banners and graphics. I thought there must be some way to put that material to use. After some experimentation and the first few bird illustrations, I developed the signature Bird vs. Bird vinyl banner pouches and began selling them here on Etsy and at a few local shops.
Fast forward to present day: with the blessing of my employer, I still fill waste areas on our rolls of banner and decal material with chickadees, chipmunks and bluebirds, and I have expanded my product line to include many other fun birdy treats.
In my home studio, I personally cut, sew, punch, press, package and ship each pouch, magnet set, coaster or pin. You can find me manning a table at many a craft fair in the Bay Area, and I've been fortunate to connect with hundreds of fellow bird lovers here in Oakland and around the country. I'm always dreaming up new merchandise and doodling new bird designs, and I love to hear from my customers and from store owners about what they'd like to see next!
