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.

Welcome to Green Bird Press’s store! If you would like to learn more about who we are and what we do please visit my Etsy profile (http:/www.etsy.com/people/greenbirdpress) or website (http://www.greenbirdpress.com).

If you would like an item that you see on my website or that has sold recently that is not currently listed, please send me a convo and I will let you know if I have any in stock or when I might expect to have more printed by.

I welcome custom orders so please contact me if you’re looking for something a little different.

To make sure you understand Green Bird’s policies regarding payment, shipping, and refunds, please read the information below and feel free to contact me if you have any questions or need more information.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay
  • Pay with Sofort
  • Pay with iDeal

Payment
Please arrange for payment within three days of placing your order. Payments must be made in full and have cleared before the order is shipped.

The checkout process on Etsy is quite simple but is a little different to other online vendors so do contact me if you have any problems.

I accept payment in US Dollars through Paypal (see below) or credit card through Etsy's direct checkout.

With Paypal, you can pay through your account or if you don’t have a PayPal account you can also pay with a Credit or Debit card. Here’s how—choose the PayPal Option during checkout and submit your order by clicking the "Pay Now" button. The next screen gives you two options, either to pay through PayPal or to pay using a Credit or Debit Card without having to sign up for a PayPal account. Choose the appropriate option and continue to input your information.

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 and may leave negative feedback for the non-responsive buyer. Please avoid this by shopping seriously, and responding to communication attempts.
Shipping
Be sure to provide the correct address for shipping at the checkout. If there are discrepancies between the address given through Etsy and the one given through Paypal, I will ship to the Etsy address.

Orders will ship within 3 working days following receipt of payment from Bend, Oregon.

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 mailer, which supplies ample protection without adding much weight. Larger orders may be packaged in a box depending on which is most economical.

US orders:
I ship using USPS First Class Mail with delivery confirmation. Delivery time is approximately 3-5 days, but can be longer.
Large orders may be packaged in a Flat Rate box and will be upgraded to USPS Priority mail. Delivery time is approximately 2-3 days.

International orders:
I ship with USPS (United State Postal Service) First Class International. Delivery time is approximately 5-15 business days and depends on location. Although rare, customs can delay packages for up to six weeks so please be patient. Please note that buyers are responsible for all customs charges, taxes, and fees.

Shipping Upgrades:
Faster shipping and insurance are 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.
Refunds and Exchanges
If I made an error in your order or something is greatly amiss, please contact me within five days of receiving your order 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 five 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 shipping costs are the buyers responsibility.
Additional policies and FAQs
All items are made in a clean, smoke free environment.

Custom Orders
I welcome custom orders so please contact me for more information if you’re looking for something a little different and we can discuss your ideas and options.

Wholesale
I do offer wholesale rates to brick and mortar stores interested in carrying Green Bird Press products. If you are interested in placing a wholesale order please provide an email address where I can send further information on my wholesale policies and rates and a link to your store website or social media pages.

Consignment
Consignment opportunities are considered on a case by case basis. If you are interested in carried Green Bird Press products on consignment please send links to your store website, facebook page, or other social media site, and a copy of your consignment agreement to greenbirdpress [!at] gmail.com for consideration.
