Printed-Matters showcases selections from artists creating unique, beautiful and sometimes challenging printed work. While always doing my best to cover a broad spectrum of established artists to newcomers, you’ll have to forgive my occasional bias towards the home-town Chicago artists I know and love.

My name is Andy Rench, the guy who’s responsible for launching and continuing to create content for Printed-Matters. I’m a Chicago-area graphic designer of 15 years who has fully succumbed to the digital world. I’m working to rekindle my love for print by observing from afar and starting the journey of creating my own hand-made printed work.

Note: Printed-Matters is in no way affiliated with the New York bookstore Printed Matter, but I highly recommend visiting their store and browsing their catalogue.
