“My name is Christopher Elsasser, and I own “Munstre” (pronounced Mun-stir). Munstre is a very young Lightbox/T-shirt project I started in February 2008 while trying to give my designs & illustrations display value than just sitting on my computer screen or in a picture frame. I loved the idea of having a functional light that was also interesting to look at and could remain affordable to most people. I am constantly working on new designs so I can keep Munstre fresh & interesting both for myself and my customers.
Each lightbox is handmade from beginning to end, and come in 2 regular sizes – Standard (9.5″ x 12.5″ x 4″), and Minibox which is a stripped down and smaller version of the standard lightboxes, they measure 6″ x 8″ x 2.8″. All are tested & inspected before being shipped out.
My work is beginning to pop up in galleries around the country which has been exciting as that’s really not what was in my original plans, and though it is keeping me extremely busy I still strive to take care of my customers through every transaction. “
