Charlie Cramer has kindly consented to let me share the details of the Print Offer just past. Here are the totals: There were 335 orders; 247 were for a single "Aspen," one was for two, and one was for three. There were 21 orders for a single "Canyon" and 65 orders for both prints, making a total of 317 "Aspen" and 86 "Canyon" and a grand total of 403 prints ordered.
Almost exactly 1/4th of the orders were from international buyers, which is right in line with our norm. This sale was popular with readers in Canada and Australia, a little less popular than usual with readers in Great Britian (although there were a healthy number of orders from there). There were buyers from many different countries, including Spain, Japan, India, the Philippines, and a number from Scandinavia (Finland too, although I don't know whether that's considered part of Scandinavia or not).
If I may, I'd like to thank Charlie for this, too. He's been great to work with.
We'll let everyone know when all the prints have shipped, which should be a few weeks from now, and that will be the next and last notice about this sale. Thanks again to everyone who participated. These really are unusually beautiful examples of the printmaker's art, as those who purchased them are discovering. If you haven't received yours yet, you have a treat in store for you.
UPDATE: I don't know how I managed to write this post leaving crucial information out, but we are shooting for a six-week timeframe for completing the deliveries. That puts the last mailing right at the beginning of April, and if you're in a different country you'll need to allow for whatever transit time is typical for you from the U.S.
As I said above, I'll announce when the last print has been shipped. If it also wasn't clear from the above, this sale was much more popular than expected, which means there is a great deal of work to do to get all the orders fulfilled. Rest assured, we're working on it—please be patient!
