Self-Care Series: Stretch
Release that stress you're carrying around with a good stretch. It can be simple, it doesn't have to be a full-blown yoga session or workout. Reach for the sky, roll your shoulders, or anything that makes you feel good. If you, like me, need to schedule a 5 minute stretch session, go ahead and make the calendar appointment now. As a matter of fact, I stopped partway through writing this description to do a couple quick stretches!
I created the Self-Care Series out of self-preservation during this crazy year. From politics to pandemics, there's a lot to distract us from taking care of ourselves, but it's hard to show up for other people when we don't take care of ourselves. I intentionally chose these women to highlight women of all sizes doing regular, self-care, everyday activities.
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 - That's 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: 285 gsm 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 shipped via USPS, unless otherwise discussed. Shipping generally takes up to 7 business days, but can take longer - especially in COVID times. When you buy a print you help a small business AND the US Postal Service! BONUS!
