The item was crushed when delivered by USPS. However, the owner of the shop promptly responded and resent a new one. Excellent customer service! Thank you!

The idea is cool, and the picture is eye catching, but I was disappointed in the quality of the paper. Once it’s matted and in a frame I’m sure it will look better.

About

How I got the idea for this art project....

First of all I'd like to apologize for the relatively unrefined the poor iphone pictures I took of my framed firearm prints. They look 10x better in real life than in the poor lighting with reflections, etc you see here. I'm no website builder, marketing whiz, or photographer. I'm just a long time gun collector and shooter who stumbled upon making these prints.

This project's roots go back to a day when I had a receiver shipped to my office. A pair of curious workers, knowing my hobby decided to "take a peek" while not opening the package. They CAT scanned it and sent me the image via our instant messaging system as I was working off site that day. That's when the lightbulb went off!

I experimented and continually refined the technique to make even more interesting images. I scanned various guns using a variety of methods to produce source images that were then refined. After two years and multiple generations of test prints I have produced what I feel are the best such images ever created. The prints are meant to be framed. They make for great man-cave art and is a very unique addition to any gun room.

As far as I know I am the first to do such a project and hope you enjoy these prints as much as I enjoyed making them.

The majority of these firearms are from my personal collection but some are loaners from friends. Most are BATFE registered transferable machine guns. The older firearms from WW2 are generally matching numbers (Curio and Relics) originals.Some have interesting pedigrees and stories behind them.

I'm continuously adding new designs as time allows. It's not a simple process. Once the scan parameters have been tailored for a specific gun and the source images created they are tediously worked on by myself alongside my graphics designer. Then each requires a couple months or more of test printing at a professional print shop with each gun subsequently undergoing many revisions until you see the final print offered here.

Thanks for your interest.

As far as I know I am the only person in the world to offer such custom prints for sale. That is... high resolution images (not made using basic Xray units) of military grade firearms printed in such a quality that warrants framing. I personally am involved in the entire process from owning the guns, scanning them, and working them up to print quality. I know they aren't cheap and I wish I could make them less expensive but I opted to take the high road and focus on quality as opposed to quantity. My goal is to offer the highest quality print possible with cost being entirely secondary.

Shipping
I ship my prints in a sturdy mailer tube. I ship prints via USPS 1st class. USPS 1st class states "2-5 days for delivery" for USA addresses. I make drop offs to USPS 2-3 times per week. I do not guarantee that USPS will deliver packages within any timeframe as I obviously don't control their shipping. Nor do I have any additional information aside from the tracking # once shipped. I can only promise that I will ship out your order within a day or two of receipt.

I charge flat rate $5 shipping for domestic orders. International postage varies by the region/country ranging from $10 to $15 generally.

Custom framed prints take about 1 week to create and about 2 weeks for delivery. Framed prints are for domestic USA based sales only and have a $20 mailing fee.

Tracking numbers are provided for all shipments. Be forewarned that oftentimes USPS tracking is imperfect concerning details of where the shipment actually is while in transit. It's pretty good about stating only when it arrived and when it shipped out. The address its being shipped to is auto-printed onto label using the exact mailing address you entered when placing the order (unless you instruct me otherwise). So if the tracking looks weird take comfort and give it a few days and you'll get your print. Ultimately, if you fail to receive your package as indicated by USPS tracking then typically I will eat the entire order and refund your entire purchase amount.
