Free shipping on orders of $100 or more

We offer free shipping on orders of $100 or more and a flat-rate shipping charge of $9.95 on orders less than $100.

Shipping artwork requires special packaging and attention. If you are ordering framed prints, canvas prints, or originals, we will add a surcharge to cover this extra packaging, delivery cost, and insurance, even if your order totals $100 or more.

As you can imagine, it is much more expensive to deliver a large, framed print than it is to deliver an unframed print on paper. We want your items to arrive in perfect condition, no matter their size. If your item requires a surcharge it will be noted on the product page as you make your selection, and in your shopping cart when you check out. Our surcharges are based on product weight and size, and reflect our actual costs to safely deliver your artwork.

If you’d like to pick up your order in Duluth or Grand Marais to save on shipping or surcharge fees, call 218-387-2491 and place your order by phone. We welcome all phone orders!

Questions? Call 218-387-2491. We’re here to help and available from 10am-5:30pm daily (CST).

Superior is a Sea

By Rick Allen

Rick Allen at Sivertson

Those who have never seen Superior get an inadequate, even inaccurate, idea, by hearing it spoken of as a “lake,” and to those who have sailed over its vast extent the word sounds ludicrous. Though its waters are fresh and crystal, Superior is a sea.

This giclee poster is available with optional framing in a classic style (framed to the edge of the print without a mat, using a 2-inch wide black wood frame). Choose your print option (fine art paper or framed fine art paper) and quantity below.

Also available as a letterpress print.

Clear Selection

Paper prints are printed on heavy, 100% cotton paper and are shipped to you flat—corner-mounted on foam core, and packaged inside a clear, cellophane sleeve. Prints larger than 17 x 22 inches are rolled and shipped in sturdy tubes. Their presentation is perfect for gift-giving and they are ready to frame. We custom print to your order; please allow two weeks plus shipping. If you need your print in a hurry, please let us know and we’ll try our best to expedite your order.

Framed letterpress prints are ready to hang on your wall. Our archival prints are framed to the edge of the print using a 1-inch black wood frame and UV-protected “Conservation Clear” glass. We include a 3/8-inch spacer between paper and glass according to archival standards; the glass does not touch the print, allowing the print to breath. Add approximately 2 inches to image size width and height dimensions for finished frame allowance. Prints are carefully packaged to arrive safely. Learn more about framing and see examples on our Information page. We custom print and frame to your order. Please allow three weeks production plus shipping for framed prints. If you need your print in a hurry, please let us know and we’ll try our best to expedite your order.

He subsequently worked as a commercial and editorial illustrator, and in 2003 started The Kenspeckle Letterpress with his wife, artist Marian Lansky. At that time he began experimenting with wood engraving and linocut, and the rest is history.
