BirdDog Press is a design + letterpress studio just north of Boulder in the little town of Lyons, founded by the family hound. Back before our trusty Chandler & Price Platen press was unloaded into the studio with a heavy iron thud, we rescued a puppy from Quebec. We named her Siler, but as a German Shorthaired Pointer, our family endearingly called her by the generic term for any hunting breed – “bird dog”. Later, when we rescued the century old press and put it to work, well, the moniker just rolled off the tongue.

Most inspired by her Granny’s vintage feedsack collection for the approach to innovative packaging and the cheerful patterns most known from the Depression Era, Allison Bozeman still likes the idea of handwritten letters and a personal touch, and it shows in her eco-crafted paper goods. The BirdDog Press is a design studio with a collaborative approach, and a print shop with an eye for craftsmanship in place of perfectionism. We love pattern and perspective. We honor history with modern technology. We heart handmade and live for a story well woven. we use { and re-use } every last scrap.

Bird dogs are known for hunting up the very best, as recently noted in the April issue of Parents’ Magazine! At the Makerie Market, you’ll find art prints, greetings, thank you notes, notebooks, journals, invitations and other paper treasures!
