  • Thank You!Mike, I wanted to let you know about the overwhelmingly positive response that I have received from my clients when I deliver your prints to them as their housewarming presents. My clients in South Orange, where we highlighted the town in orange, had this to say: "Thank you again for the NJ art! It's so unique and such a nice way to welcome us to NJ. It's all ready to be hung in our "parlor."
