Exactly the same as cktbreaker's. The paper that they used was about 12 inches too short for the tube they were in, plus the bubble wrap had completely slid down the tube on one end so the prints and paper (none between the two prints) were banging on the end of the tube. Upon closer inspection there was some very minor edge wear (about an inch) on one side. Not worth mentioning really, and it is already smoothed out. Overall the prints look fantastic!

FYI Tova said that she has no extra prints so if there is damage, its a refund

i didn't even get shipping notification yet here in buffalo
no shipping notice yet for me either...
That's good news. Still time to send them a couple of yazoo tubes, kraft paper and silk paper. and don't forget to send them this link.

So much for free shipping... would have paid a little more just to avoid all this BS.

I wish mine hadn't already shipped out, so I could have someone pick mine up also. :? I'm starting to prepare myself for the worst.

the problem is that the shipping tube it too large in diameter. I think its a 6 inch tube. and since these prints are varnished and not rolled tight enough, they are slippery. what is needed is shipping these in a 4" yazoo tube and roll it up and tape it so it's slightly smaller than the 4" tube. do it this way and I doubt a single person would've had a damaged print. these prints are beautiful.

Hopefully ours come in great condition. Image
