From what I've read in this thread and the Adrift thread...if you breathe on this print it will cause scuffs. I sorta' don't blame fourputt for not wanting to deal with it. A high-anxiety print, fer sure. I'm already nervous when I think about framing it.

Speaking of framing, I remembered seeing this frame-up of the Adrift and loved it. Corey (Peacedog) and company did this at Furthur Frames. 1" spacer behind the mat...a great effect. Don't laugh at me, I can imagine feeling like Julia looking out the viewport at George when I think of the effect this type of frame-up would provide. :wink: 8)

All of your wonderful replies to my heartfelt post have only proven my point that trying to arrange a deal would be more hassle than happy. EB never disappoints.

When did Comic Book Guy start teaching at The Learning Annex? I have no idea why I continue to frequent this place, bunch of wankers for the most part. Can't wait to see what this post brings.

what do you want, a handjob? a medal? what do you expect when you offer the print up at cost, then essentially tell everyone to drymount themselves an hour later?

OP: i got the opportunity to buy a print; i'm considering passing it on at cost
**inbox explodes with interest**
OP: after great deliberation, i've decided not to help anyone. i don't want it, and i won't pb it for anyone
EB: you're a dumbass
OP: my feelings are hurt

Have they started notifying winners yet? I still haven't heard anything.

I bet Jeremy's probably going, well, I've never had to send out a third round before.

Don't forget the four escalating scenarios that he apparently came up with in order to get the print for cost

Yeah, it's nice. The one pictured has a 4" mat boarder (o.a. aprox 36 x36 framed) I wonder if it would look just as good with...maybe a 2" mat boarder? I'd prefer a smaller framed dimension...say, like 32 x 32 o.a.
