Angela Stewart

The Ladybug Press is the creation of Angela Stewart, a graphic designer turned letterpress & screenprinter. Our studio, located in the City of Trees - Boise, Idaho, is nestled under an old apple tree and is home to our vintage Chandler & Price Letterpress, affectinately nicknamed the “Blue Beast.” The Ladybug Press team illustrates, designs, prints and packages all our letterpress & screen printed goods in our studio. Ladybug Press is an environmentally conscious studio. We use salvaged inks and 100% tree-free cotton papers or recycled papers. All of our paper scraps are used for other products, reused for setup prints, or recycled. We always use recycled packaging materials whenever possible! It’s good to be green!

ARTIST BIO

I am a graphic designer that loves to make things, I fell in love with printing long ago. I got my first letterpress in 2008. In 2011, I built a new studio space and upgraded to a bigger letterpress. In 2016, I expanded the studio again this time adding a small screenprinting press. Designing our lines of greeting cards, coasters, notebooks, tea towels & other goodies is one of my favorite things. I feel very fortunate to love what I do, and I think it shows in everything we create in our little studio. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Graphic Design from Boise State University.
