Each poster is hand-printed and handled, to make sure that only the highest quality is offered and sent out. The matte paper and high quality of inks make for a vibrant image which looks great both framed, and au-naturel. Printed in Los Angeles, CA, on Epson Enhanced Matte Paper, heavyweight stock, high color gamut, using Epson UltraChrome HDR ink-jet technology. Framed posters offer the same, museum-quality printed poster, but wrapped in a protective black frame. The frame is lightweight and includes a shatter-resistant acrylite front protector, so it won't break in the mail. International orders may be subject to customs duties & taxes.

Artist Statement

After the shooting in Parkland, FL, I had to express my outrage through a poster design. I deconstructed an American flag and burned holes through the stars to represent bullet holes, and painted the stripes with "blood". Gun violence has touched every state, and now is sadly the "state of the union." - Lynne Smyers
