June Giveaway: APC & WTF
I got a nice surprise yesterday afternoon from Lew at APC (Artistic Photo Canvas). The Fed Ex guy came with a huge box containing two 20×30 canvases made from the Tunisian image that graces the cover of Within The Frame. That wasn’t the surprise. The surprise was how gorgeous the canvases were. I keep meaning to get a bunch of canvases made, just to see what they look like, and I keep not getting around to it. Lew made it easy and as a thanks to my readers for the support you’ve shown me for Within The Frame, and as a welcome to new readers that arrived here after reading the book, I’m giving away one of these canvases. It’ll be signed, and shipped to you straight from me.
So what do you have to do to get your name in the hat for this one-of-a-kind canvas? Two simple things. First, go check out APC’s website at ArtisticPhotoCanvas.com – then come back here and leave a comment that contains your name and your email in the email field. Every time I do this some wiseguy forgets to leave an email address. I have neither the time nor the inclination to send smoke signals or carrier pigeons to let you know you’ve won. But I want to give stuff away, so make it easy for me. Also, while the draw is random, it wouldn’t hurt to remind me of a reason why I should pick you. Will it help your chances any? Not a bit, but you’ll amuse me and you can’t put a price on that.
Finally – this is open to people from all corners of the globe. BUT if you’re outside Canada and the USA and you want this you’ll have to commit to splitting the shipping costs with me. I’ll pay half, but after seeing how much it costs to send a book to you international types, a canvas ain’t gonna be cheap.
Draw closes on or around July 01, depending on when I end up leaving for Ethiopia.
Why APC? They’re passionate and focused, and I like passion, vision and the kind of customer care that you don’t get much these days. They create exceptional stuff and serve their clients with abandon. My relationship with them is young but I’m hooked. Sure, they’re a long way away from me, but the canvases came in perfect condition by Fed Ex and their prices meet or beat most others while providing true giclee quality. I’ll post more about my relationship with APC as it develops, but I’m already pretty sure I’ll have them do some of, if not all, the images for my next exhibit.
