Does that mean that they are going to put my signature on the FAR™?from the Lumigraph page

Brilliant! There is a lot of "it" that comes with "the territory".To put it simply: You put out a shingle that said bring in your crap and I'll frame it.

A freaking Kinkade puzzle AARARRRGGGGGGGG
Several years ago my mother gave me a TK puzzle for Christmas. We put it together and my intention was to frame it. HONEST!! This was before I got burnt out on TK marketing, pushed over the edge by the TK toilet paper.
I still have it in my puzzle caddy, waiting to be framed. It won't be, as I intend on taking it apart and donating it to the Senior Center, and I know they will love it. It also won't be framed by me because I'm no longer enamoured by TK. But my mother is, and I won't have the heart to give back the two small giclee-on-canvas-framed, that she gave us for Christmas a couple of years, ago. I love them, they're the lighthouse ones, I don't care who painted them.
So...I'm saying it right here...I have two TK's hanging on my wall at home, and I don't care what anyone thinks about it. My mother loved them, and so do I. The titles are about getting through a storm and about Serenity,and they signify a storm that we got through a few years ago, and are grateful for the peace we have now.
I still might frame that puzzle and give it to my mother to hang in her house, with the other TK several prints I've framed for her because SHE loves them.
As for puzzles, I need that caddy to bring in a puzzle that I asked her and my aunt to put together, to frame and hang in the shop, to say "We will frame your puzzles" It isn't a TK. It's by James C. Christensen, one of several puzzles by various artists that I sell in the shop. Puzzles are a pain, but so what! I frame all kinds of PITA stuff, what's the difference?
To those of you complaining about framing customers' TK art, I say GET OVER IT and realize that other folks love them, and it's what they like that counts, not what I like or don't. I'm tired of TK bashing too, and got involved with a couple of other threads and bashed along with others. I let myself get caught up in it and I'm ashamed of myself and I won't do it again. Those customers are paying my rent, and I'm grateful for them.
I say BRING 'EM ON!!
And the puzzles too! Ka-CHING!
