Once you've selected that awesome piece of art you think will fit perfectly between your sofa and mid-century modern hutch, you sit back and wait patiently for your beautiful one of a kind poster to arrive in the mail. A week or two later it arrives! It's packaged in a sturdy 3" ridged tube and that delicious poster is inside waiting to be revealed. But wait! You have concerns in opening your precious art because you are overly paranoid about crushing it or bending it. Well have no fear, this detailed step by step guide to opening your poster print will help ease your worries.
Pull off one end cap.
Tip the tube over so the poster slides out naturally. Do not grab, pull or pinch the poster trying to extract it. This my cause bending creasing of the posters edges.
Peel the sticker off the rolled up poster, be sure not to squeeze the poster to hard as you may bend it. If needed use a knife to cut the sticker, however be careful not to cut the print itself, this could end up damaging it and your soul.
Lay the print face down on a flat surface. Take the cylinder mailing tube that was shipped to you and set it down to one side of the face down print. Next carefully roll the tube while wrapping the print around it.
Use the sticker that was provided or a piece of tape and secure the print around the tube. Wait approximately 1 hour.
If you find step 4 too much of a risk you can alternatively use these things called books. Carefully roll out your print on a clean flat table and place clean heavy flat items like books on either end of the poster.
Then sit back and relax while watching re-runs of Mash or Golden Girls all night long. This option takes approximately 24 hrs.
