STOP BUYING BORING CARDS (AND OTHER GIFTS)

HOW TO PLEASE YOUR FRIENDS AND MILDLY OFFEND YOUR RELATIVES

A SELF-HELP GUIDE BY

“PEOPLE LIKE ME SO MUCH BETTER NOW THAT I SEND THEM MATT’S CARDS.” - PREVIOUSLY UNLIKED MAN


ABOUT THE MATT BUTLER THE MAN AND THE BRAND The Matt Butler (the man) began life in the rolling hills of North Carolina playing in the woods and sometimes being made fun of for being a ginger. The woods and bullies of his youth toughened Matt and turned him into the snarky, hand-crafter he is today leading him to start... The Matt Butler (the brand) has been creating kick-ass goods since 2009. TMB specializes in greeting cards, linocut prints and other giftable items the subjects of which are influenced by witty humor, pop-culture, food, drink, and good design. Both the man and brand are currently based in Oakland, CA. Living, working, and playing in the west-coast-Brooklyn is mostly great but sometimes infuriating because really how many house plants does one bar need?? Being surrounded by so much hipness allows The Matt Butler to closely observe popular culture and then lovingly mock it. The access to top-shelf avocado toast is also a major perk.

#WeLoveOurStockists Over here at The Matt Butler, we love being loved... especially on Instagram. We get all warm and fuzzy inside when we see our wonderful stockists post our goods, so we spread the love by reposting as many of those photos as we can. As an extra “thank you,” every couple weeks, we pick a photo we’ve been tagged in and send that stockist 6 free cards with their next order. So, keep tagging us @themattbutler when you post on Instagram and we’ll keep spreading the love on our end. <3, The Matt
