Q: 5% of my poster purchase will be donated to the National Parks Service?
A: Yes! It may be small fries to start but over time we hope the donations from this series will be substantial and great! We call it teamwork!
Q: Why are some prints limited edition?
A: We love being inclusive. That's why every park will have open edition runs of 18"x24" posters. We're also excited to offer collectable prints that are limited edition. These larger 24"x32" prints will be made for select parks. Get em while supplies last!
Q: Why do the variants cost more?
A: Variants often require additional layers of ink or special printing processes. Therefore they cost more to produce.
Q: Are the prints signed and numbered?
A: Only limited edition prints are numbered. In the instance where the artist has printed their own posters these prints will be both signed and numbered.
Q: When will my order arrive?
A: We get orders out as soon as possible. Most take 2-3 weeks to arrive. However, some orders may take 3-4 weeks.
Q: It looks like I've been given a tracking number but it doesn't appear to be activated yet?
A: Sometimes USPS takes a day for tracking numbers to activate. If you've just placed an order you'll mostly likely run into this. Please give an order 24 hours to kick in.
Q: I'm local to Austin, can I pick up my order in person?
A: Unfortunately we're not set up to accommodate pick ups at this time.
Q: Can I change or cancel my order?
A: We're sorry, all sales are final.
Q: Do you ship internationally?
A: At the moment we're only able to ship to Canada. We use USPS Priority Mail International to ensure prompt, reliable service. This includes tracking and insurance on your order.
Q: Will a poster for each park eventually be released?
A: Indeed! We will be releasing a print for each park. Our initial release schedule will see two prints-per-month come out. We hope to increase this number going into 2017.
Q: A different artist will illustrate a print for each park?
A: That's right! As a compliment to each park's unique beauty, a different artist will illustrate each park with their own unique aesthetic.
Q: What is screen printing?
A: Screen printing is the process of pushing ink through a mesh screen. Each color of a particular design is pulled one at a time. Since most or all of this process is done by hand, some variations in color and registration in each print are to be expected. Still confused? Seeing the process usually does the trick! Scope out a video here.
Q: Why screen printing? Why not use one of them laser printers?
A: The simple answer is that screen printing yields a more beautiful print. Laser printers are entirely mechanical. Screen Printing involves much more of the human hand and eye. Each layer of color is pulled individually when screen printing. The ink overlaps and builds up on the paper in a way that a laser printer can't come close to. This allows the artist to pull off some beautiful things with color. For these reasons every print is unique in some slight way which makes it a little more special!
