Frequently Asked Questions


What are the print dimensions?
The print dimensions depend on the state, see each product page for print dimensions.

What are the frame dimensions?

The frame dimensions depend on the state, see each product page for exact frame dimensions.  The frame is 1 ¼” wide, has a height of ¾” and a rabbet of ½”.  There is a ¼” frame overlap of the print making the visible portion of the print ¼” less on all sides of the print.

What paper quality is used in the print?

We use LexJet Sunset Cotton Etching paper.  This 285 gsm (gram per square meter) paper has  a slightly textured surface and a special matte coating that supports detail, rich blacks, and exceptional color reproduction.  The base paper is a combination of 25% cotton linters and 75% alpha cellulose (high-grade, acid-free/lignin-free wood pulp).  

What are the paper specifications?

Our paper is .43 mm thick and 285 gsm(Grams per square meter) heavy.  Compare this to regular printing paper that comes in at .1mm and 80 gsm respectively.

What material is the frame made of?

The frame is made of eco-friendly Bonanza wood, which is comprised of 100% post-consumer recycled wood product, is a type of MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard).  We use a frame-grade acrylic glazing and offer frames in matte black and American walnut finishes.  The frame comes with a plexi-glass pane covering the print in addition to a dust cover backing and wire hanger.

What ink is used on the print?

We print using pigment based inks.

Do the framed prints come with a wire hanger and mounting hardware.

Yes, they also include a dust cover backer.

What breweries are used in the collage?

For a list of breweries used in the prints for each state visit our Breweries page.  Only breweries that meet the Brewers Association’s definition of craft beer are used in the designs.

How do I flatten the prints?

The best way to flatten the rolled prints is by first unrolling a portion of the print and placing a couple flat heavy objects such as books on the first two unrolled corners.  Next you will need to carefully unroll the rest of the print making sure the protective papers are not removed (There are two protective sheets of paper used, a thicker outside sheet and a thinner inside sheet).  Once this is done you will need to add objects to the last two corners and possibly the middle.  You will want to leave the print like this for at least 24 hours.  Make sure you wash your hands to remove any oils from your skin before handling the prints.
