Woops!  I totally remember you mentioning that.  :-[  I got a little excited to add the tracking to my tracking app and forgot.  :)

No worries :) Which app are you using for tracking stuff?

I'm using Parcel for iOS.  :thumb:  It's working well so far.  :)

I wonder if it works with Singpost http://www.singpost.com/ (the tracking window is on the sidebar of that page... ) For future reference!

Hmm?  I don't have a tracking number from this, right?  Sorry, I'm not following what you mean.  :-[

LOL I mean in the future if I'm sending stuff to people via Singpost, I wonder Parcel works with their tracking. Their website is pretty year 2005 and I'm not sure they even have a REST api or something for app integrations. :)

I hope I'm the only person this happens to



Luckily, because hydrospell has been kind enough to include three copies of his artwork in my package, only the one printed on paper was affected. The two printed on canvas are both undamaged. Thanks again to the Royal Mail for being useless.
Can we get them to build the Alps ten feet higher and get Cherry to pay for it?

;D  I will say that the lack of a dominating color (other than I guess red, technically, due to the "MX") in the print made selecting a matte quite difficult.  So I went with something a little more "out there".  Hopefully it turns out alright.  :P

And of course, thanks again for all your work on this!  It really is a beautiful print.  And I had a fun time explaining what MX switches are to the framers.  :))

Edit: Apparently it's spelled mat. TIL :)

Frame shops are always very expensive compared to buying a stock frame from IKEA or a similar store, so be prepared for that if you decide to look into it. I've only had one other item framed, and I'm kind of reserving it for the more special prints I have.

But I'd definitely recommend at least stopping by a frame shop! In my experience they are super helpful and will work with you to design something that looks good. I haven't quite developed the best eye for this stuff yet, so matching colors and frames is rather daunting.  :P

Of course, all that said, a stock frame is still great! In the end you may not feel that the added cost of a custom frame is worth it.

Oh and there will definitely be pictures!  ;D

Holy, did not think that it would be that much LOL I feel bad stopping into shops knowing that I won't actually be purchasing anything. I will probably be waiting for your picture and try to emulate it the best I can :thumb:

I've framed many things using frames from http://www.americanframe.com/, they are fairly affordable, especially at this size.  It's tough to pick a mat color online though.

Frame shops are generally very helpful, and have great selection - which is basically what you're paying for.  I've framed a couple large photographs at a local place, and you can easily spend $4-500 dollars on framing.

Yeah like a door mat! :) I'm really happy that you thought this deserves a frame and even more so that you had a fun time explaining the artwork to the framers! Love it when art sparks these moments.

What Colour did you pick for the mat in the end? Looking forward to the pics!




pictures please! I didn't know there was such a thing as a frame shop.. I was just gonna go to ikea or something to pick out the closest fitting frame

That works too (IKEA) as long as the frame is bigger than the print! I think you can get the frame mat made to size so it holds the artwork in your frame nicely.

You can always float mount it rather than using a mat.

Glad people are getting them already even though the tubes are taking a beating.

This is what a float mount looks like. (I learnt something new today!)

Absyrd, by the way, would you know if I can contribute 5 prints to the raffles going on for D? I don't have enough time to organise something but I'd be happy to contribute some prizes. If this sounds like something that might work, PM or email me and we can go from there :)

You can if you want. inanis is running hers US only and Badwrench is doing international I think. So it'd be up to you... ship 5 to me and I'll send them out CONUS or you ship individually to winners INTL. Thanks so much for the thought!!

I can do international direct so that includes US as well. Could you do the link up with badwrench or whatever's necessary to enter these five prints into the draw?

I don't have good pictures of the print yet so hoping someone who receive theirs can take a nice picture. I have shipped a copy to a photographer friend but they'll take time to capture a proper photo as they're doing me a favour with it.

Yes I agree! And part of why I feel that I want to chip in and help out is because absyrd has been ridiculously kind in giving constructive, generous comments to get this group buy off the ground and it's only later that I found out he has so much to deal with personally. So I feel it's only right that I help in whatever way I can.

Alright, I ended up bringing the print home to think about it more.  I may try talking to the guys at the place I went to last time (first tried a new place closer to where I live now that I moved), and see what they think for framing options.  :confused:

Anyway, here's a pic at the frame shop with some mats and frames we were trying.  I was leaning toward the purple mat, but the designers strongly disagreed.  It's probably not a perfect design choice, but anything red, blue, brown, or green just looks lopsided, so purple was a good neutral "complementary" color IMO.  I dunno, I'm not an artsy guy.  :P

I just wouldn't go with any clashing or distracting colors. Purple works with all the print colors just fine. That blue is okay, too. I would NOT do red as that would distract from the piece.
My wife I a also push her button . But now she have her button push by a different men. So I buy a keyboard a mechanicale, she a reliable like a Fiat.

I guess I can let the cat out the bag now. I got a special gift for Des from hydro a while ago and he snuck a damn test print in there. It has been on my wall temporarily until I find a frame using the "no-hole-tack" method (as pictured... learned this in printmaking class to display your stuff even when still a bit damp and so you don't ruin the art putting holes in it).

I love it over my monitor. But my HHKB wants to fight it.

Messy desky.


So vibrant!


Tack point next to the print... thumb part gently holding on...

I'd say grey or black or white if you want to just 'frame' this a little visually, as the colours on this print are a bit all over the place as it is. Maybe a wooden/natural colour would work too? Like greyish brown. The reason is Red, Green, Brown are all brown (red + green = brown) component colours, and the blue isn't the type that will clash with brown?

Why does your HHKB want to fight the test print? By the way a numbered print is on its way to you too :)
