Might as well get the framed option if it's at that price.

$240 extra for the framed option.

Hmm.

Will the framed version be trimmed?

$235 for a giclee in an addition of 400?!? :shock:
Wow! I'm glad I don't collect her work. I'd be broke!
Is this the norm?

no - the lip of the frame covers the 1/8" white border.

Is there a local pick up option available for the framed version to save on shipping?

Looks like prices have gone WAY up! And edition sizes too. Damn.

Maybe that will decrease some flippers.

Bigger edition? Yup. Higher price tag? Not really. Her limited editions have been priced in a similar fashion for years. Not to be confused with her $100 timed editions.

When I ordered from Audrey before local pickup was not an option. You could probably do it from Thinkspace though.

we can set up a local pick up for the frame at Static Medium and refund $40.

the frame option is only available on Aud's site, not through Thinkspace.

In my opinion, if I consider the size of the print, this is priced higher than what she usually charges. A few prints she's sold more recently have been more expensive in price but also larger prints.

Inflation.

I bought my very first Aud print 5 years ago at exactly the same 0.72 cents per square inch, so to me it's 2008 all over again. (She Who Dares, 18x21, $275).

So $40 off with local pick-up? Sweet!

hey, it's been the same for me! This is a bit more expensive than She Who Dares if you consider it was an edition of only 200,
but i agree with you, i never bought her limited editions for less than $200/250.
