Started in 2008 and revived in 2012, Design For Obama is a grassroots collection of posters from artists around the country that helped elect Barack Obama as President. Select designs from the 2008 collection were published as a coffee table book with filmmaker and activist Spike Lee and design author and historian Steven Heller.
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.
