Says one customer - "Comments .... The quality of the product I received was phenomenal and unexpected. For the price I paid, I expected a store-bought poster-quality print and received the equivalent of a 20" x 30" photograph. It ended up
making me feel bad about the relatively low-quality frame I had purchased for the print. Mike from IA"
