Poster is AWESOME, but the post office can’t read!

I absolutely love this print. I’ve purchased every poster Jimmy has made and couldn’t be happier.
What I’m not happy about is the postman can’t read the, Do Not Bend, message and folded my last print like a taco and stuff it in the mailbox.

You did good. I'm going to make a nice frame and hang in my shop. Thank You. Now go make something :)

Ordered as a christmas/going away gift for a friend. Arrived very fast (sooner than expected) and was well appreciated by myself and my friend.

Bought as a gift: he loved it! Great quality, printed on very nice paper. Arrived fast in an envelope sprayed with Diresta stencil. It just added to the product!

First of all the packaging is very cool. On the outside of the envelope a spray painted "DiResta" is stenciled on the outside. I cut that part out and hung it on the wall. Once inside, the print was awesome. Numbered and signed. I am in the process of making a frame in my shop for it now...the only appropriate way to display.

Words to live by. Couldn't be happier with my poster, it will be hanging in my shop as soon as I finish the frame for it! The design is clean and simple, definitely happy I purchased Version 2 with the bottom reversed (even with the more exclusive run of Version 1). So cool to think of the history of the letter press, thanks for restoring it and making such beautiful posters Jimmy!!
