Matt is an excellent vendor to work with as he communicates with his customers rapidly. He does a lot of work but still has the patience to answer any/every question his potential customers ask. I ordered gray Toms with white ink but later realized I would rather have beige with turquoise ink, so I messaged Matt and asked if he could change my order. He responded to my message within one hour and changed my order without dropping a sweat. I told him I needed the gift by a certain date. Matt told me to not worry because he would custom print the Toms and have my order on my doorstep a week before the date. Sure enough, they showed up a week before expected arrival! Matt is a GREAT guy and I would recommend him to anyone!! Responds to messages, compassionate for customers, and adjusts to fit your schedule!! GREAT DUDE!!

About

Printing the Truth Since 2009

The Matt Butler has been creating kick-ass wall art since 2009. He specializes in linocut prints, the subjects of which are influenced by his sense of humor and love of bikes, typography, and Southern culture. These linocut prints start in Matt’s Berkeley CA studio with a hand-carved block of linoleum and some tools Matt inherited from his grandfather. An image is carved into the block to create what is basically a giant rubber stamp. Ink is rolled on to the carved block which is then placed on a hand-cranked press and the block transfers the image to American-made paper. Each mark carved into the block is imprinted into the paper as it stretches during the printing process. These marks are subtle, but they add depth and character that digital printing cannot replicate. Each print is unique to all others printed from the same block.

Matt prints his humorous greeting cards using a small, Japanese screen-printing machine called a Gocco Printer. Each one is hand-printed and folded, and full of sass.

The TOMS shoes are printed by hand making each pair unique. TOMS makes a great product and Matt tries to make them even better.

    I am a former teacher turned printmaker. Carving linoleum and printing started as a hobby and became my passion. My sense of humor and love of food, bikes, and typography influence my designs. I love the work I create and hope you do too.

Shipping
I take great care in packaging and shipping my work. I use the US Postal service for the majority of my shipments as they offer reasonable rates and take great care in their work. All orders are shipped first class.

I aim to have shipments of prints in the mail within 7 business days of purchase. Orders of TOMS take 14 to 21 days as they are made-to-order. Please be patient as some orders take a bit longer. Certain colors and sizes of TOMS tend to be more popular and sometimes are on back order. Please message me to confirm availability if you are concerned with shipment speed.

If you wish to upgrade to a different shipping method, please message me.

International buyers are responsible for any tariffs or fees that might be incurred from importing my products. In addition, I do not insure or provide tracking on international shipments so if they are lost, I am sorry. If you wish to have your shipment insured or tracked, please message me as additional shipping charges will be applied.
Refunds and Exchanges
If your order is lost or damaged when you receive it, please message me with details and I will do my best to replace it.

I will accept returns of paper prints within 14 days of purchase for orders in the US and 35 days of purchase for international orders. A $15 restocking fee will apply and you are responsible for shipping it back to me.

I will not accept returns on Custom Printed TOMS as they are made per individual order. Please make sure you have chosen the correct size before ordering.
