Check!

I've almost checked everything off my To Do list - including picking up these two posters from my framer. While I have no idea where they're going, I figured having them framed would put me one step ahead considering they've been rolled up for nearly a year.

Ork's Manhattan poster with a 4" mat and simple frame:



1978 US Secret Service shooting range target in a bamboo frame [I found another poster on eBay here]:

Love that Manhattan poster. What a cool idea. I'll wait for Queens I think. Or Austin.

Getting posters/pictures framed is the best feeling ever. It generally takes me a year to get anything framed.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a Houston edition! In fact, a while back I even emailed with the designer begging her to do a Houston poster. I think Dallas was in front of us though - rats!

I think the Secret Service poster is a perfect addition in any office environment, especially after those dreaded Monday morning meetings!

Kate said...

I think you should add these to your Things We Save. What great posters!

Erica said...

That Secret Service poster is so strangely cool...

melissa davis said...

Great posters, both of them! :)

How funny! I bought the Manhattan poster for my home office a few months ago and STILL haven't gotten it framed! You've inspired me to do it sooner. :)

A Houston poster would be awesome!

Ohh. I wonder if I can still my target from my one single day on the shooting range. That would be awesome to frame.
I'll call him Mr. Center Mass - cuz that's where I hit him!

If you don't mind me asking, where did you get your prints framed? I'm still learning all the great Houston resources...

Paloma: I hope you do frame it soon...the longer it goes unframed, the longer it's exposed to possible wear and tear. I can prove that unfortunately! I love how a good frame, even a simple one, can transform a $20 poster!

Lauren: Welcome to Houston!! I use Bruce Lee (no, I am not lying) with New Art out on Harwin. Do not blame me for the horrific drivers, congested traffic, or obnoxious area of town that you would have to go to have your work framed. His prices are well worth the stress you would ensue. And he's so quick! Maybe that's why he's named Bruce Lee.

Love love love the Secret Service poster. I would hang that in my kitchen (as long as it didn't scare my daughter; actually, she SHOULD fear the governement!). What a fantastic find!

Oh my gosh, I love that Secret Service poster! I think you should hang that in the entry way of your home, or another entryway, so that it's the first thing you see when you open the door...POW POW!
