About the Wall Print
The medium is a 36" x 24" museum-quality matte print that looks just as good as wall poster as it does framed or mounted in an office. Paper is 10.3 mil thick, with weight of 5.57 oz/y² (189 g/m²).
To unroll safely for display:
- Remove from box and tissue paper.
- Gently unroll on a flat, hard surface. (Be careful not to bend!)
- Facing upright with chart visible, place 4 flat objects on the corners. Books work perfectly for this.
- Leave for 1-2 days.
- Hang using poster strips or poster putty.
About the framed version
This is a professionally-framed version of the Wall Print. It has a 0.75" thick semi-hardwood Alder frame. Hanging hardware is included.
For a cheaper "value investor" version, you can purchase the Wall Print version along with this frame from Amazon for $25-30 (or any other 36"x24" frame).
