I do wish pressure printing would offer a framed option.

I would sure like to see actual photos instead of the jpg representation. I'm not sure if I like it $200 worth yet.

Are you sure? The photos of the emboss are obviously real but the photos of the whole piece looked a little too good/fake and there's a little drop shadow around it. Maybe it's just a good photo setup, but it's not an obvious "print with a table underneath" shot like a lot of them. I'm probably over thinking it. :lol:

I don't know about the reg, but the last photo of what I assume is the silver one I'm pretty sure is real - it's a bit warm lighting-wise.

Stupid question, but that is an ink border around the perimeter of the print, correct? It's looks raised but I am sure that is the way it is supposed to look. I like it one way or the other..

It looks like it's foil stamped like the main image. Not raised, but impressed.

Still can't decide which one I am going for, what are you leaning towards?

I like both, but I'll withhold judgement as to which is my favorite, until I see them both up close. ^_^ I think, perhaps, people who dig the Steel Grey variants he's done on prints in the past, will probably be more into the Silver, and vice versa. I feel like it loosely parallels that sort of distinction.
