Founded in 2012, Pretty Alright Goods helps people say what they want to say through greeting cards and gifty goods that have a little bite, a lot of heart, and just a few unexpected bottom jokes.
We feel quite lucky to get to do what we do every day and we have you to thank for that.
Greeting cards, cocktail napkins, and other gift items to help you put words to those most important life moments - birthdays, anniversaries, losses, graduations, weddings, and cute dog sightings.
You can find Pretty Alright Goods in over 1500 independent gift stores and specialty retailers across the country.
Staying connected is HARD. Texts aren’t very personal and who has time for a phone call? Enter witty, relatable greeting cards! Nothing says “hey friend, I’m thinking about you,” like a handwritten note on a beautiful, hand-printed piece of paper.
We continue to be humbled and grateful that our customers find us pretty alright.
Folks who love making other people chuckle. You’ll find us in the heart of Raleigh, North Carolina where we spend our days writing and hand-printing cards.
All of our greeting cards are written, designed, and printed on vintage letterpress machines; cut and folded by hand; and shipped out from our small wood-paneled office.
How the Goods are Made
Every single Pretty Alright Goods card is hand printed on thick cotton paper using a Heidelberg Platen Letterpress. Each card is cut, folded, and packaged by hand with care in our offices in Raleigh, North Carolina.
In 2012, our founder, Matt Butler quit his job.
He was a fifth grade teacher in search of a creative hobby; what he found was a new career.
He learned the art of linocut printmaking and began hand printing wall art. He wrote funny taglines to support his art habit.
In 2015, a friend suggested he try his hand at making funny greeting cards.
It went Pretty Alright.
