Just bought this print and it seems to be a little bit smaller than 18x24. Any owners kind enough to confirm that this is the case?

Thanks. The one I bought seems like it's a quarter/half an inch off on both Length and Width, but otherwise seems completely normal. Not sure if I'm over thinking it here.

I do not have this particular Obey print but I do have the Learn to Obey print from 2014 and it was not a true 18" x 24" print. It's more of an 18" x 24 1/4" print. My copy fits in the portfolio but hangs out about 1/4". I'm guessing the trueness of size all depends on which paper supplier OG is using for a particular print.

I have a fair number of Obey prints and a few are slightly larger or smaller than 18x24. Most of those are 1/8-1/4 off. None are 1/2 inch off though. If it is that far off then maybe it was trimmed.

Thanks. I'll double check it tonight. It may be just 1/4 of an inch off.

Spoiler alert: No one is faking screen prints of this fudge.

Why the fug would some EBer trim a print that is exactly 18x24? Sometimes Obey prints are oversized by a bit, which would conceivably warrant a trim for standard size framing, but this one is undersized. Unless it was just poorly cut to begin with, which is the most likely scenario. #sizequeens
