Item: The Half Million Digits of Pi Poster - Metallic Ice Edition. Actually the first 500,533 digits of Pi displayed on a metallic ice specialty card stock. It has quite a sparkle and is like a light blue silver, but not quite.
The Pi digits are crisply printed at under 2pt in size. Super tiny. Super crisp. Super awesome. The microscopic Pi digits even fill the Pi character image in the center of the poster. See the photos.
This new poster is 12.5 x 19 inches in size. It fits on any wall and can be framed.
If you love our Pi posters already but want something on a paper color other than white, then consider this poster or the other posters in this specialty category.
Magnifier / Loupe: Unless you have a strong magnifying glass or loupe with at least 5-10x power, we highly suggest you add one to your order. Depending on availability, we may provide a different magnifier than shown in the photos but it will have the same specs as what you've chosen, or better. The magnifiers we provide are a great combination of value and power. Click Here for magnifier guidelines.
Colors: Black print on a metallic ice background. The digits form a gray halftone which can be seen in the photos. The Pi character image is a rich cyan color that is made a bit darker by the black digits flowing through it.
Quality: This poster is professionally printed on the highest quality poster stock.
Size: 12.5 x 19 inches .
Framing: All margins are .4 inches. Any photos of framed posters are just for illustration. We currently don't offer framing. Because this poster is an irregular size, please visit our FAQ page and read the "Information about Framing" topic.
The giant magnifier shown on top of the posters is just a visual aid to convey that the poster contains many digits.
Shipping: This poster ships flat due to the thickness. Because of that we've added a few dollars to the shipping cost to cover the shipping materials.
