The print is gorgeous and as is often the case, the COA rivals the print. I was bummed to discover the print that arrived today to be skewed on the paper though. Yes, it will "frame out" but I don't want to have to correct it in the framing. It may not come through in the pic but it is almost a 1/2" out of square along the bottom edge. :(

I have grossly overestimated the skew (which is rotational) I measured and it is closer to 1/4”. Visually quite noticeable nonetheless. I hate to even mention it because the work produced from these guys is always top notch but I would be lieing if I said I wasn’t a little disappointed.

Breathtaking prints. Both of them.

Did you guys get a shipping confirmation or tracking of some sort?

Ok, thanks. Seems like I'll wait a little longer, then.

I have to assume everyone has received their prints now. I am curious if others had received copies that were cut crooked so that the art was skewed from the paper's edge?
