Martens Printworks | Lake Prints


Martens Printworks  produces original vintage style travel prints that are inspired by the subject matter, color and design seen in a foregone era of printmaking. These completely new and original lithographs are a series of works that represent several well-known locations in the grand state of Michigan and Great Lakes Region.


Pete Martens resides in Mid-Michigan. He has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Florida State University and studied printmaking, sculpture and painting at Yale University. While predominantly a painter, he has recently taken great interest in vintage-travel print advertising.

This most recent work, demonstrates his appreciation for the subject matter, colors, composition and the craftsmanship employed in early 20th century printmaking.


All prints are meticulously printed in Michigan using fine quality, archival paper and lightfast inks in a standard frame size. Similar to travel posters of the early 20th century, all each print has a substantial border  making matting unnecessary when framed.
