I dropped mine off last week, hopefully getting in a week and I'll post.
What matting/frame are you going with? I have a framing appointment coming up and I'm having a hard time deciding on an idea.
I went with single white matte, slightly off white, because the framer said it would give depth to the print. This should be the frame http://www.arqadia.co.uk/productdetails ... mno=520752. I asked to have the frame steel wool rubbed to bring out more of silver color (since the sample she had was more black) so that the black and silver would match more of the egg and the vacvvm design. Really excited to see how it'll turn out

I know they were available for preorder around early September, but i think you had to receive the email or somethin. Supposedly the leftovers were available to the general public at a later time. I could be way off base on all this, and if so, whoops. It was like $615, so i said fuuuuck that lol.

Look forward to seeing how your Croatoan turns out aznpunkyu. I used that frame on an OTA but was painted silver versus steel wool.

Nice! It's a beautiful moulding. I gotta give my girlfriend the props though, she's the one who picked that moulding out. I love her 8)
