There is still something iconic about a daily newspaper, its size and feel represent something now timeless in the information age. “Untitled (Rainy day LA Times excerpt)” presents us with spreads from the Los Angeles Times published on every rainy day over the 2014/2015 Southern California winter. The first impulse is to search for something familiar, a story we remember, an important date, but taken all together, this poster illuminates the beauty of an everyday object.
This collection of LA Times' pages are a by-product of work currently in progress in Sam's studio, captured here in poster form to present a view of the ephemeral element of art work. This act of recycling stays true to the multi-use nature of newspaper, its ability to record daily activity, and to cover up or reveal new stories.

Our FramesWe put as much care into selecting our frames as we do our posters.
We do lots of stuff to keep prices low and quality high. Our custom frames are archival, made of solid wood and always use UV plexi.
Frame Styles in Black or White
Gallery Frame full bleed means framing to the edge of your print.
Shadowbox Frame with a spacer is a method of framing to keep the art fully visible in the frame, edges and all. This gives the illusion the piece is floating within the frame either on a mat or on a foam core lift. A spacer is added to the frame to keep the artwork from touching the plexiglass. When floating, we add 1.5” all around for all art sizes.
When you should expect delivery
Once you place the order we aim to ship completed custom frames in 5 to 7 business days. We send the finished frame by FedEx Ground Delivery. It takes about 2 weeks to create your new frame and deliver it to your door to be hung and enjoyed. Prices include all shipping within the contiguous US and a signature is required. Because each frame is made by hand specifically for every order, we regret we cannot offer refunds or exchanges.
Why we use Plexi
We use UV-filtering plexiglass for all frames. Why? Because that is the best option and has become the industry standard. Chances are you will be moving and plexiglass is lighter, scratch-resistant & shatter-resistant. It also provides more UV protection and less-glare than glass. While a bit more expensive than glass, the quality and protection plexiglass offers is so good, most art sellers and galleries are using it and so should you. Our standard UV plexi filters ~ 85-89% of UV and 92% of light.
What we are made of
Our frames are the highest quality, produced by manufacturers here in the U.S.A. Our frames are made from woods like maple, walnut and oak. The mats we use are completely archival: 4-ply, acid free and contain a white core.
We always love to see where the posters find a home.
