People don’t like creases in posters! I know that I was taught never to fold art. So I devised a very uh… thrifty… method to prevent such crimes.
This is how I will be mailing my posters via letter-size envelopes. Would anyone be interested in this method? It’s about $18 cheaper than the alternative (mailing tubes).
Also feel free to try this out because I think it could be helpful to many.
Oh, and if there are concerns about me taping to the printed side, it is actually easier to peel off the tape from the oil-based ink. :)
I think I’m going to use this method for my prints because I tried it and just sat on it and it withstood the force of my butt.
This is fantastic.
Canada Post charges over $20 to ship a poster tube to the States. Joodlez, your contributions to society will not go unrecognized.
I might actually start doing prints again
This method may greatly depend on what kind of paper your prints are made with. I tried it out on a blank sheet of my poster stock, and while it certainly didn’t crease, it did leave a dent when I pressed down on the tube.
I also think there’s a step missing here? What’s this about double-sided tape? Because I don’t think I want tape sticking to the surface of my print. :(
