I've got a couple methods for flattening a print: 1) Set print (facedown) under a big piece of plexiglass I picked up at Lowe's / HomeDepot. Make sure you have the print under a clean, flat surface. Back of a mat works fine for me since most prints are around 14x24. You can also put books on top of ...

Yeah, I guess "humidity pack" wasn't a good term. I was talking about the dessicants. I've got some in a metal tin, once they turn pink I'll toss them into the over and dry them out. This is usually every couple months, although I don't check them daily. If its not doing any good, oh well. Just want...

Humidity Packs?

Hi, I was wondering if anyone here uses humidity packs in their storage units? I have my prints stored under my bed in a big box, but I've thrown in a couple humidity packs to help regulate the air. Anyone else tried this? I've got a smaller box and not much air space, so I've got a couple smaller p...

Man, these guys are taking a golden opportunity and putting out complete crap. Sadly, someone at Red Light Management has to looks at these posters and say "Man, I dig this....how about you print the rest of the tour for us?". I stopped caring at the grilld cheese print, but I've seen 3 or 4 hot dog...

hmm.....I don't think a print shop that has been around since 1879 would be considered "boring" by any stretch.

To each his own I guess...but I like the letterpress prints, it takes more than a few mouse clicks to get them right.

I have mine stored in a flat storage box from Target, perfect for sliding under the bed. Nothing special, I just stack the prints on each other. All of mine are Hatch prints, so they are made on acid free paper and the ink is very durable. Haven't noticed anything messing up and I've had them in the...

Its one of the perks of living in Nashville... I visit Hatch probably once every 2 weeks to see what they have. Its like going to a thrift shop and finding great clothes and sometimes not finding anything, although I don't think I've ever left Hatch empty-handed. Hands down, its the best art you can...

Just wanted to throw a comment onto this post, I have been using a piece of plexiglass from Home Depot (or Lowes) and it works great. Not too heavy, but you can add weight on top of it. I picked up a 20x30 piece for about 7 bucks.

Looks like the names are visible again. Thanks for making that active again, and sorry if I offended anyone by opening the topic. I guess my view (having a small collection) was vastly different from someone who has hundreds of prints. I enjoy being contacted about prints as they are something I lov...

Well, if someone puts a print you have on their wanted list, it doesn't contact the print owner to let them know of the possible match...and if the print owner doesn't log in and check to see if there is a match, you'll never know of the possible trade. On the other hand, when you send someone a PM,...

Who submitted a print?

Is there any way to find out who submitted a couple new prints? I believe we had the option of seeing that a print was submitted by a user (i.e. ColonelCash) but with the new format, I think its gone. I'd like to contact the person and see if they are willing to trade, but I can't for the life of me...

Hi there, I just recently had some rack lighting installed at my house to showcase 2 or 3 prints. I know track lighting doesn't have the best name in lighting, but considering the circumstances it was the best fit for my situation. I have some frames with UV-protected glass to protect the art, altho...
