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

To have pride in who you are, to stand up for what you believe in takes courage. To love yourself first, before you can love those who hate you for who you are takes courage. I thought about using the usual rainbow colors to indicate the inclusiveness of all lesbian, gay, bi, Trans, queer labels, but it is love that holds all of us un understanding. So I had to include the heart. I had thought about rendering faces, but I decided that the simple word, "Pride", all in caps, says everything that had to be said. — Lyla Paakkanen
