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

This poster was created to celebrate the diverse patchwork of neighborhoods that make San Francisco such a uniquely world-class city. The format references the seven square mile dimensions of the city, and the color scheme pays homage to the different shades of orange that reveal themselves when the Golden Gate Bridge is viewed at various times throughout the day. — Jim Schaaf
