Oregon Creek - Middle Yuba River, CA
You're 10 years old. You and your cousins have worked up a sweat frolicking in the mountains and swinging on the rope swing. It's a hot summer afternoon and it's time to hit the river. The cold mountain river water is a shock at first, but quickly feels just so darn good. All the kids take their pool floats and go down "the rapids", you try to catch little trout with your hands, and see who can swim to the "big rock" and back. You spend countless hours in the water, and only come out for a quick snack. Those were the best days of summer at the Oregon Creek on the Middle Yuba River.
Size: 8” x 10” - easy-peasy to find a frame, versatile for most spaces, may even fit in a scrapbook when you don't want it on the wall anymore.
Orientation: Portrait - the tall one, not the wide one.
Paper Content: 100% Cotton Rag, acid free, lignin free (prevents discoloration and fading), and no optical brighteners - Tree-free AND the cotton typically comes from the textile industry.
Thickness/Weight: 250, 285, or 290 gsm - What does that mean? The paper is thick and durable, and would probably jam your home printer. I either print at home or use a giclee printing company - hence the slight difference.
Ink: Pigment-based ink - holds up better in sunny spots and stays colorful longer!
Prints are eco-packaged using:
Flap-n-seal bag, the "plastic thing", is made from compostable plant material (not plastic).
Rigid direct mailer envelopes made from 90% post-consumer recycled materials, and they are certified recyclable and naturally biodegradable. Boom.
Zero-waste shipping labels - both the label AND backing (the thing you peel a fresh sticker off of) are recyclable. We don't always think about the label part when we recycle!
Prints are typically shipped via USPS, unless otherwise indicated. Shipping generally takes up to 7 business days, but can take longer - especially in COVID times. You help a small business AND the US Postal Service! BONUS!
