mine also mega fuzzy. packaged well, but the print quality is poor IMO.
boo....thanks for the advice guys
Thanks for your thoughts, I'll see if I can address them.
The "fuzziness" you're seeing has to do with the printing process we use. You have to remember that UV printing on wood is different than a giclee on paper and you just cannot get the same sharpness. The grain on these prints is very smooth, but it still affects the laydown of the ink. We (including myself) are all used to seeing super crisp giclee prints on paper, however wood is just a different substrate. Also, each piece of wood is going to have different grain and texture, and that affects the "fuzziness" as well.
I think also, the artwork itself is somewhat fuzzy, the originals were spraypaint and acrylic on textured watercolor paper, so parts are not very sharp to begin with. Much of what you see is intentional.
I love the way these look and would not have released them if they were flawed. Sure we could have released these on paper and they'd be a bit sharper, but I've been embracing a more populist approach to some of the things I do lately, and I like that these are affordable, ready to hang, and easily available to those who want one. People are very happy with these. We sold 400+ and have not had any complaints except a few in here that I know of.
All that being said, we are always looking to make the quality better on these wood prints. Since the first one, "Mother and Father", we have made some big leaps! We'll continue to improve quality and shipping speed as we go! Thanks Jeff
I wonder if we could get Jeff/Printsonwood to pre-sell the whole set of Jeff Soto pieces at once. I'm just not sure if my schedule will allow me to catch all 20 release dates. I don't have much of a life but occasionally something comes up!
I was lucky enough to win one of these banners! its awesome...now where to put it??? Also, I cant comment enough about how great Soto treats his fans. I randomly received a package from him with a signed showcard and a couple of other goodies just to say thanks. This always makes it easier to buy from him ;D
