Making a custom print Step 4

Today I brought the 2 black + white files (which I had created here ) and brought them down to Midtown Reproductions to be enlarged and then copied onto mylar.
Here they are - enlarged to 30" high.
(FYI To make a screen your image needs to transferred onto either vellum, mylar or acetate)

While I was here I also enlarged 3 Victorian advertising cuts of a fork, knife and spoon up to 4 ft high! Don't they look great? I think I may make them into a print for my kitchen.
The midtown guy has such a cute smile on. I think he likes them too.

Here the images on mylar (called film) are wrapped up and ready to be taken home on Beatrice (my bike).
ps. I kinda hope Paul Buckley is reading this to see how many steps are involved in making a custom print! Kinda doubt it. :-)

Will you frame them?
I have some art to show you that is so big I am not sure how to frame it.
