From the wrapping paper and tape she uses down to the personalized thank you note she includes, it's all so perfect. The art isn't bad either :). Very lucky to own a bee og and a now a monarch. My wife has put a lot of energy into raising monarchs and this was a surprise gift for her.

The monarch goes well with your fatties. Looks good!

Do they assemble it for you as well or do you have to do it yourself? Looks great :clap:

Yeah, I won't go anywhere near a Hobby Lobby. There's one near my office, but I'll drive clear across town to another craft supply shop instead of shopping there.
So it goes...

Got The Woods in yesterday. It's beautiful but I think I learned a lesson on this one. Shipping from printer >Spoke Art > Vanessa >Spoke >Me is a lot of shipping for a print with that much black. Most of the black on mine has scuffs and a weird pattern(that could be an artifact from printing or a characteristic of the paper) when viewed at an angle. I'm sure it will look fine behind some glass.

the texture is just part of the paper. but yeah the scuffing almost can't be helped due to the black yeah.

Yea I've seen that on heavy black prints before, and its visible on mine as well from certain angles. It's basically unavoidable but I get your frustration.

Ah, it's no big deal really. Like i said, I'm sure it will look fine under glass. I had just never really considered how far they were going to travel. It's really pretty incredible considering the price. :lol:
