Though I went to a professional printer, the quality of the image wasn't that great. Dull colors and the text had to be adjusted in order to be seen. I love the concept and we were able to get the image quality fixed, but disappointed the file wasn't really print-ready.

About

Sometimes the stars align...

Greater Skies is run between Barcelona and San Diego, CA by Juan Manuel Reyero and Laura Vidal Borrell. The project was dreamed by Juan Manuel, an engineer with a PhD in Physics and a constant itch for learning and building, from star computation programs to monocycles. Laura designs computers but has a secret life as a chef, knitter and hostess extraordinaire. When she discovered Juan Manuel had built Greater Skies she jumped in to get it off the ground. Fun bit, Juan Manuel and Laura worked in the same company and office in Barcelona for 3 years but never met. Sometime later they bumped into each other in California while having a cup of coffee, sometimes the stars truly align!

    I am an engineer with a PhD in Physics and a constant itch for learning and building, from star computation programs to monocycles. GreaterSkies is my way of learning more about astronomy. I live in Barcelona with my two boys and a very hungry dog.

    I have a double life. During the day I design software. At night I make sausage, I knit and sew, and I run GreaterSkies. I was born in Barcelona but I live in San Diego, CA, with my film writer husband and a baby on the way

There's two of us. I am an engineer and a scientist with an artistic bent . And I am a crazy knitter, maker and ETSY addict. We live between Barcelona and California. We love astronomy and we love to know that the sky shows us that every moment is unique. Some time ago we started making posters for friends and family to celebrate special occasions and the awe when receiving them made us start Greater Skies.

You can read more of the story of Greater Skies inception here (warning, it gets very geeky!)
