Any recommendations for mounting and hanging The Essential Geography as wall art?

My favorite ways to display The Essential Geography are:

- Mounted on hardboard that is attached directly to the wall. Adding a simple frame protects the edges.

- Framed without glass.

- Mounted on gatorboard (a more rigid and durable type of foam core), with what my frame shop calls a "false frame" adhered to the back. Picture wire attached to the false frame allows you to easily hang the piece.


Is shipping free?

Standard shipping is free in the US and Canada. 


Is my print packaged well for shipping?

Prints over 15 inches on the narrow dimension ship rolled in a plastic sleeve that is placed in a cardboard tube, and that in turn is placed inside a long carton. I've had good luck with this system.

Smaller state and regional portraits ship sandwiched in cardboard and placed inside a "Stay Flat" envelope. I've had good luck with this system, too!


Which shipping service to you use?

I use US Postal Service Ground Advantage. Shipments in the contiguous 48 states take 2 to 5 days, Alaska and Hawaii around 12 days.


What is your policy on returns?

My prints can be returned within 30 days of purchase. Due to the unique and custom nature of Fine Art Prints, a 25% restocking fee will be charged for their return. Please send a message using the contact button to arrange authorization for any return.


What are Fine Art Prints?

These are archival inkjet (giclée) prints which will last a lifetime without fading. They set the standard for durability and ultimate quality reproduction. 


Do you sell laminated prints?

Currently, I don't. They're problematic. They want to ripple in the lamination process. The laminated casts a slight shadow on the image, a problem because the Essential Geography of the USA is a bright image. Lamination does not adhere well my Fine Art Prints. 


Can I purchase a framed Essential Geography?

I used to sell framed versions, and wish I still did. But, shipping surcharges on large items like this have become astronomical, so now I recommend using local frame shops.
