So so happy with this beautiful gift! Alex worked with us to make a custom one-of-a-kind gift for my father-in-law and was so flexible and willing to do anything to make sure it was truly perfect. Thank you for the speedy production time and the incredible craftsmanship. We will for sure be ordering more RovePrints in the future!!

About

handmade prints born out of wanderlust

Hello! Thanks for stopping by to check out the shop. rovePrints was born out of a love for maps, a passion for exploring cities and the desire to work with my hands (a nod to 6 years of building models in architecture schools).

Working as an architectural designer by day, I've grown nostalgic for designing things by hand and decided I needed a creative spark to reel myself back into the world I have such excitement for. In the middle of winter 2014/2015, I decided to sign up for a printmaking course at a local studio in my neighborhood of Ravenswood, Chicago. Knowing nothing about screen printing -- but growing captivated by the process -- I felt I had found a new medium to 'make.'

Any of my friends and family will tell you that a favorite activity of mine is riding my bike (or taking an exploratory walk) through a city's neighborhoods. I wander through them like a distracted driver, spotting a funky old building or a derelict industrial corridor, and then I make my way to it to discover more. Putting pen to paper and illustrating some of my favorite places in the form of a map has become a tangible way to capture my wanderlust.

  • Show Of Hands Chicago

    Architectural Artifacts, 4325 N Ravenswood Ave

    Chicago, IL

    Apr 28–30

    Founded in the summer of 2013 by Chicago-based design company, OrangeBeautiful, SHOW of HANDS was created to be more than just another craft show. It's a commitment to independent design. It's the presentation of high-caliber work in a professional way. It's the understanding that craft can be couture and handmade can be high-end. The overarching goal of SHOW of HANDS is to fill a void in the world of art fairs, handmade marketplaces and craft shows. OrangeBeautiful plays the role of curator, organizer, promoter in its execution of this professional and highly-anticipated event.
