"Genuine, active LISTENING not only opens authentic dialogue between people, but a chance to learn and understand new ideas and thoughts.
I centered the word LISTENING in the center of a sound wave surrounded by a pattern of ears, depicting a warm environment for constructive discourse" - Karl Tani

About 1200 Posters

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.
