The online print store pretty:darn:swell closed recently. I’m not sure exactly when it closed, but its About page now tells us that:

Our gallery offered an array of beautiful giclee prints created by contemporary artists and illustrators from all over the world. A portion of the proceeds from every sale went directly to our artists and to charities selected by those artists. That portion totaled nearly $20,000 in just two years!

I only bought one print from Wade and Lynne, but I was very pleased with it. I wish them all the best. I’m glad to say that there are other online print stores offering a similar deal to customers, artists, and charities: Blue Flip and Tiny Showcase come to mind.
