Pretty Alright Goods makes products that help connect people. It is a bunch of greetings cards and other goods that are kind of punchy and a little bit genuine and hopefully bring a smile to your face. It is also a small team of people that work really hard to create those goods. Saying a lot with a little is what they are all about and it is where they devote a lot of their energy. They want to help you share those real-deal, super-serious feelings but just coming out and saying “Hey, I really love you” is kind of hard sometimes, so they add in some humor to break the tension. They also make some silly stuff that is just meant to make you laugh. Either way, they hope it means a lot to you and your loved ones.
Pretty Alright Goods began about 11 years ago when Matt Butler was a teacher and looking for a hobby. A printmaking class led to selling linocuts at craft fairs and stamping custom TOMS shoes. Eventually he made some greeting cards and he hasn’t looked back since. What started as him working out of a spare bedroom morphed into a small team, a growing line of goods, and a new name (The Matt Butler just wasn’t doing it anymore). The business and he moved across the country a couple times but he is excited to be settled back in Raleigh, NC where it all began.
