All art prints are signed, and are available in various sizes. They usually come with a special surprise. All sized prints are sized appropriately for easy framing. Typically, you can find a frame from Michaels Arts and Crafts that will fit the print. Every art print is printed from a professional Epson p800 with high quality Cold Pressed paper which gives the art print a texture that is close to the actual piece.
