It's a lovely print; I've only had the Tiny Showcase ones before this. Now to save up for the framing...
Congrats on your first large print! :D

Face down on glassine, then rolled in bubble wrap, with bubble wrap packed on either end as well

So ‘Return’ was $85 USD to ship to Australia. Just got tracking info, and they sent it 1st class, which usually costs around $30….. fair enough :roll:

Yeah, even adjusting $5 for materials and an extra $5 for your share of the time associated with packing your print, still should not have been more than $40

Don't forget to add in the stress of shipping overseas. That's gotta be worth $45.

Do you think the quality of the reproduction matters or is it that any/every open edition won't impact an OG's value?
I only ask b/c these are well done and look very nice in person.
