Having placed my first order, I just want to say how good the service was and how good the print looks.
I reprocessed my entry from LPS Round 14 and then ordered through the online system, picking the file directly from my Smugmug account.
I received a confirmation pretty quickly from Jurgen and then a few days later, a message indicating that my order had been shipped. Due to the holiday weekend, it arrived 4 days later, this morning by USPS priority shipping.
The outer packaging was nice and solid:
And while I was a little concerned with slipping a knife into the tape around the outer edge, I didn't need to worry. There is an inner box containing the photo and the wall mount:
The inner box opens up to reveal the print; which was wrapped in plastic:
And the print is just fantastic. This image doesn't do the real thing justice, but I am totally happy with the detail and clarity of the print:

Definitely a product I'll be ordering more of and thanks to Jurgen and Tom. Great product and great service.

It was an error. Fixed.
