I'm not sure what was written or not but it's 100% a screenprint (if only on the basis of smell).

Well yes, of course, but just opening the tube is enough for new Obey screenprints.

It said screenprint when it was posted and it hasn’t changed:

It also said screenprint on IG and in the email.

The print looks good in person. I do wish they would have used the more saturated gold used on other recent prints and the blank space at the top of the print in the middle makes it seem a little unfinished but it's nice overall.
I'm not someone else.

Don’t they only print lithos for open editions due to cost? Heard it’s more economical. iDK
