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.
