Shipping

Artwork is sent in a 4" diameter tube, which avoids tight wrapping in transit. Tracking details are provided for all orders throughout the world.

This isn't the first time I've made a project like this: I've been making soundwave art and T-shirts for years, with thousands of items shipped worldwide.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge is reaching the goal: this is set to make sure core costs for printing, packaging and postage are covered. I have a lot of experience working with printers and great care is taken to make sure each print is of the highest quality.
