About

Green Bird Press

Green Bird Press is named after my small parrot, a green cheek conure, with a large personality who hates to be petted and loves to look down holes. She, of course, manages to be adorable and annoying all at the same time. Now if she could just do a little work between naps...

The business is small, it's just me and a table top letterpress machine from the mid-twentieth century, a bunch of lead type and various designs I've had made into printing plates, along with all the accoutrements needed to print, package and ship products. I recently moved into a studio space at The Workhouse in Bend, Oregon and can be found there several days a week printing, binding, working on new designs. I also teach the occasional workshops so look out for those if you're interested in learning some of what I do.

My designs are minimal, modern in style, and often geeky. I choose subjects often based on my own interests, making cards that I can happily send to friends, coasters that I use on my own coffee table, and journals that are tough enough to carry with you. Each item is printed or bound by hand and attention is paid to every detail to make sure you get the best possible product.

If I made an error in your order or something is greatly amiss, please contact me as soon as possible and I will do my best to resolve the problem as quickly as possible.

If you are not satisfied with your purchase, please contact me within 14 days of receiving the item and we can discuss refund or exchange options. If it is agreed that a refund is the best course of action it will only be issued once the item is returned in original condition. All return shipping costs are the buyers responsibility.
Payment
Please arrange for payment immediately after placing your order. Payments must be made in full before the order is shipped.

The checkout process on Etsy is quite simple but do contact me if you have any problems or questions.

I accept payment in US Dollars via credit card through Etsy's direct checkout and Paypal.

Additionally, customers can pay with a Check or Money Order in US Dollars. If you are interested in this option just let me know as soon as possible after ordering that the check is on it's way. Please be aware that due to mailing, cashing, and clearing times this option will take much longer to process and your order will not ship until payment is complete.

In the event of non-communication and non-payment after the three-day period Green Bird Press reserves the right to request that Etsy cancel the order. Please avoid this by shopping seriously, and responding to communication attempts.
Shipping
Be sure to provide the correct address for shipping at the checkout.

However, if you notice you have provided the wrong address contact me as soon as possible, if I have not yet shipped your order I should be able to update the shipping address.

Most orders ship within 1-3 business days following receipt of payment from Bend, Oregon. For custom orders estimated turn around times are given in the item description and if you have any questions or concerns about this you should contact me before ordering.

I try to keep shipping charges as exact as possible, charging you only for shipping rates and packaging materials. Therefore, most orders will be packaged in a bubble or rigid mailer, which supply ample protection without adding much weight. Larger orders may be packaged in a box depending on which is most economical.

Delivery times will depend on the shipping option you choose during checkout.

US orders:
First Class Mail: approximately 3-5 days
Priority Mail: 2-3 days
Express Mail: 1-2 days

International orders:
First Class International: average 2-3 weeks depending on location.
Priority International: 6-10 business days
Although rare, customs can delay packages for up to six weeks so please be patient. Also please note that buyers are responsible for all customs charges, taxes, and fees that might apply.

Shipping Upgrades:
Insurance is available at an additional cost if requested. Please convo me for more information if interested. If you chose not to purchase insurance, Green Bird Press does not take responsibility for any lost or non-delivered items once they are in the hands of the USPS.
Additional policies and FAQs
All items are made and stored in a clean, smoke free environment.
