About

Celebrating 10+ years!

Kathryn Hunter started Blackbird Letterpress in Lafayette, Louisiana, in her friends' house in 2003. Blackbird began with the purchase of a Chandler and Price "Old Series" platen letterpress (circa 1904) from a long-time printer in Hammond, Louisiana. The movable type came from a printer outside of Chicago. One crisp October weekend (well, crisp in Illinois, not necessarily in Louisiana), Pudd and Kathryn flew to the big midwestern city, loaded a couple tons of type and cabinets and other goodies out of a basement into a moving truck, and drove it back to Bayou Country. A collection of vintage printer's cuts came from a long-time printer in New Iberia, Louisiana (the trip was luckily much shorter that time).

We currently work out of a mural-clad building in Baton Rouge, which we share with a cool metalworking business and two frisky guard dogs. We print on several presses: C&P 8x12, Vandercook SP15, C&P 10x15, and a Heidelberg Windmill 10x15.

Kathryn Hunter was trained as a printmaker and has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in printmaking (1999) from Montana State University, Bozeman, and a Master of Fine Arts in printmaking (2003) from Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge. She continues to make fine art when she's not busy keeping up with Blackbird, designing, printing, and performing other operational tasks. See her fine art work at kathrynhunterfineart.com. Her work is represented by LeMieux Galleries in New Orleans, LA.

Rebecca Kreisler earned an MFA in printmaking at LSU in 2011. She currently teaches at the University of Louisiana, Lafayette. See her work at rebeccakreisler.com.

[printing]

The impression you see in our printed paper goods will vary depending on the paper and type of relief image we use. A lino cut leaves less impression than a magnesium plate, for example. While we enjoy the texture debossing creates, we cannot 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.
