So excited! Excited enough to use the ridiculous Boopee font, even! The short version:
THE ADIPOSITIVITY PRINT SALE IS HERE!
The Windier Version:
You asked for it. I promised you’d get it. You asked again. I said ohhh, sorry I… but… well… y’see… Then I pointed at something shiny and ran away. Again, you inquired. I assured you. Someday your prints will come. Welp. Here they are. For two weeks only.
This business of balancing quality, price, and a host willing to put up with the hate mail, she is a complicated mofo, and I don’t think sales can cover the front end cost of offering print service permanently. But two-weeks’ worth, I can swing. So get ‘em while they’re warm, ‘cause the sale runs only through the end of the month, when the Adipositivity Project turns back into a pumpkin. Well, not a pumpkin, exactly, but a website without a print sales feature.
Boost your blissysmilemoodhappy by buying a print. Boost the project by buying two. Boost your favorite Adiposer by buying one for them, as well!
The Small Print:
Not all images are available in all sizes. (This’ll be clearer when you star poking around the site.) And some images, mostly older ones, are not good candidates for print, usually due to resolution. So to maintain quality, I’ve chosen not to offer those in the print sale. I know. Sadface. But there are 346 available. That’s one for every day of the year, if you take a nice vacation and a couple weekends off.
No, there will be no text or watermark on your finished print.
There are a handful of images included in the sale which haven’t been seen before, and some alternate takes of others you have seen. Don’t be alarmed.
Just as beauty comes in all sizes and shapes, my images also refuse to conform to the cookie cutter. Rather than allow the print technicians to re-crop these photos to more fully fit standard print sizes, I’ve selected the “fit” option, meaning the entire image will appear in the print. In many cases, this will result in white borders on two sides. To get more bang for your buck, I recommend clicking on “view all products” in the lower right corner of the chosen image’s page, then select “best fit” in the upper left corner of the following page. You’ll see a list of the wisest size offerings for your print. Select one and add the print to your cart. Then hit “view cart,” and when you click on the image, you’ll be shown exactly what the finished print will look like, borderwise. If you’d then like to try on other sizes, hit “change” in the upper left, and see how the image fits in different size prints. Yes, this is a bit more time consuming, but I think it’s worth it. In the words of Erykah Badu, I’m an artist and I’m sensitive about my shit.
Once the print is yours, you may crop it any way you like. Shred it and line the cat box with it, even. The print is yours to do with as you will. But not the image. Standard copyright laws apply, and reproduction or publishing without first obtaining licensing is considered yoinking. Don’t Tosh me, man.
I’m offering a variety of photo papers from which you may choose, several mounting options and a few non-hideous frames, assorted currencies are accepted, and we’re rockin’ the global shipping. And because there are now, like, hundreds of Adiposers (?), I’m just gonna g’head and make all my Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr peeps honorary Adiposers with a 20% discount through Sunday 3/23, 11:59 Eastern. No minimum! (Ahem, also no maximum.) Use code BIGFAT20. And share that bad boy, why don’t ya?
I wish I’d saved the names of the eating disorders therapists who’ve written asking to buy prints. Or the people who said they want to fatten up their walls. If you know anyone who’s mentioned this, please give ‘em a heads-up. Got until the end of the month, y’all.
So go to the NEW adipositivity.com and have at it! This’ll take you straight to the print sale gallery: http://theadipositivityproject.zenfolio.com/p895819635
UPDATE: The Adipositivity print sale has been extended to, like, forever-ish!
