"As a professional in the green building industry, it's great to see the steps that many communities and cities are taking to both lower energy use and to generate more electricity from renewable sources. Most often, I find that although large-scale, "sexy" projects get all of the attention, it's the work of ordinary people in ordinary jobs quietly working to change building codes or invent new ways to build that reduce energy loss that are the real, unsung heros of the environmental movement." - Samantha Yost

About our Prints
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.
