Welcome to my little corner on the web! My name is Linley. I'm the owner + designer behind Matted Ink.

Matted Ink is a lifestyle brand formed out of my passion for design and typography and my affinity for rural living. It's my mission to spread real, positive messages into the world and to inspire those around me to live purposefully.

I'm a graphic designer by trade, but my love for entrepreneurism began at an early age growing up on a farm + watching my father run a local grain elevator and agronomy retail business. Matted Ink began as a side-gig, while working in the advertising agency world, but I slowly built it into a brand that represents my values.

After much encouragement from my amazing husband, family + friends, I took the leap into full-time entrepreneurship in January of 2017 and haven't looked back a day since!  

When I'm not popping up all over the Midwest with my mobile business, you'll find me enjoying small town life in northeast Iowa.
