Done!

My store labels arrived last night, so I applied them to all of the store artwork, crossed all the I's and dotted all the T's, packed it up, and got it ready to go. This morning I dropped the package off at UPS.

I am finished with all of the art prep for the show. Hallelujah!

In the process, I learned:

- How to ship artwork
- How to wire a frame
- Where to buy frames that I like
- How to size mats
- How to cut mats
- An absolute ton of about printing and preparing images to print
- How much I suck at color correction
- Where to find a print lab that I absolutely love

And probably lots of things that I'm not remembering right now.

My next learning experience will be in seing how much of the art sells. If 100% sells, I'll make a reasonable profit. If very little does, I'll be in the red... but it will be a learning experience.
