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

Mixed media artwork. Original water color on paper with graphic design elements. "Your face here" placed boldly at the head of the painting because everyone can enjoy art. I strongly believe that art is thought provoking. It can change the viewer's perspectives in ways that words alone cannot. Art is everywhere and it truly is one of the many things that make America great! — Dakota Rais
