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

The rainbow symbol can symbolize the LGBTQ cause, but the heart is a symbol of love. I wanted to play with both of these symbols in a design for LGBTQ rights. The love, symbolized in the heart, is not just love for each other, but love for self and all that you are and love that inspires understanding and empathy for others. In this design I wanted to see what would it look like to have pattern on pattern.and what tone and tint would do to the design. — Lyla Paakkanen
