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.

We Can Do It! is a collection of designs inspired by the iconic “We Can Do It” poster of the 1940's to celebrate modern-day workers (women and men alike) who keep the country running and rarely receive the recognition they deserve.

Artist Statement

I grew up in a farming community in central Pennsylvania and I remember summers harvesting corn in the fields. Farmworks are some of our nation's most vital workers. Their labor brings us low cost fresh fruits and vegetables year round. I wanted to capture an image of the migrant farmworker who travels from place to place to work in agriculture. — Jessica Gerlach
