[xkcd shop] Signed prints: alt text?

Postby jules.LT » Tue Dec 09, 2014 3:56 pm UTC

I was wondering if the alt text is printed somewhere on the signed prints in the xkcd shop.
Also, not that it's an issue but I'd like confirmation: I'm guessing at that price the signature is printed rather than handmade, right?

And because it's not that convenient to check out in the store, here are the available prints:

My guess is that, like the book(s), there is no title text included. Print is no longer the web, unfortunately.

Wait for a real answer.

On the ones I've ordered no alt text. I'm not detailed enough to tell if it's an individual signature or not. Try emailing the store and asking.

Thanks, guys.
I placed my order of T-shirt, prints, book and badge yesterday. It was high time I gave something back for all the enjoyment I got from xkcd :-P
(well, besides the "What If?" book, that is)
