Hello there. We are LadyBird Letterpress. We hope that this website will grow over time and become our little corner of the web to share our work with the world at large. As you may already be aware, we are a startup letterpress design and print shop in sunny San Diego, California.
LadyBird Letterpress was established in late 2013 by the husband & wife team of Lyndee and Ray Sensenbach. We’re each passionate about people, design and paper. Together, we’re constantly influenced by the natural world and strive to make it a more beautiful place through our work.
Our Printmaking Origins
We’ve been experimenting with printmaking for the past few years, getting our start with the linocut medium. Linocuts are created by hand carving linoleum surfaces, similar to a woodblock print. We began producing limited runs of our linoleum prints for greeting cards for some local businesses. Following a series of positive responses from family and our first few clients, we recently decided to get more serious about our design and printing.
We’ll see you around, chirp!
