What are you getting?
Each photo has been picked by Max as a standout from its series. It has been printed on quality A3 stock at a professional print laboratory. The size of the print is 297mm x 420mm. These have not been printed at Officeworks. It is a heavy grade of paper, similar to a printed photograph. It is shipped in a cardboard cylinder. Here is the process:
The gnar gods with a bolt of lightening issue the print through the clouds. 16 steez nymphs gently carry the print to Max's studio. He inspects the quality and with a nod, a garrison of liege singing manly carols rolls the art, wearing gloves of cotton wool, and gently lowers it into a cardboard cylinder designed to withstand the rigours of the journey to your house. Open carefully and listen, you can hear the echos of joy and jubilation that came together to grant you this special photograph.
